You know it's a new world when Tampax introduces a new spokes"person" for its feminine hygiene products. Meet Zack and learn all about this 16-year-old through here.
Evidently, Zack's world, and the world of Tampax, changed when he woke up one day with girl parts and grew an appreciation for those born with girl parts. Zack is 16. I keep thinking about this 1970s show I remember watching during a time we didn't think much about boys waking up with girl parts - James at 16. Imagine an episode in which James wakes up one morning with girl parts. Maybe it would be better for an episode of Three's Company (Jack or Mr. Roper?). Or James and Zack talking to mom and dad about how they always wanted girl parts.
But Zack isn't this new marketing figure invented to discuss gender issues - he's some new 16-year-old cutie made up to sell tampons to 16-year-old girls. Wow. We've come such a long way.
