I would have to disagree, because the more you drink it and do it, the more money she's gonna get in the divorce...
You're kidding right? Why would I deprive myself of quality products just because of the idiocy of their hired sponsors? It's pretty rare that I base my product choice decisions on sponsorship. I choose prods based on their quality. Nikes are pretty good, but I don't touch low-tech, crappy Gatorade. There's much more important stuff going on like the take-over of our country, the theft of our economy, murder of millions of middle-easterners etc. Why not support something worthwhile like a boycott of Israeli products?
No, I'm not kidding. As impotent as I am, here, I can at least not 'buy' the idea that the way a man treats his family doesn't matter, is not important. I can refuse to "join" brands that support the objectification of women and the disregard of wives and children. Oh, and I thought I could boycott more than one thing. So I have to choose?
Hurting Nike employees would serve no positive purpose; I suspect they'll jettison this dude pretty soon. Welcome to the real world; check this out: http://deadspin.com/5416948/chaos-in-tigerland-a-deadspin-investigation-into-the-sexual-habits-of-pro-athletes . Undoubtedly his wife had some ideas about what she was getting into. I suspect the whole thing was pretty much about business anyway. Now she'll get her payoff and freedom. If you think that the ultra-rich are in any was normal people you need to keep digging. Check this out http://eyeswideshut.warnerbros.com/ . At the top its all about unbridled power, money, desire, rife with throw-away sex-toys. It'll interest you to know that at the Bohemian Grove male prostitutes outnumber the girls.
Thomas, I've been living in the real world for quite some time. Any illusions I manage to cling to are chosen by me in order to live simply and with some joy.In my own small ways, though, I (a mother of three daughters and a son) can advocate for women and children in this culture that sexualizes young girls and, again, objectifies women. I can do that with my pocket book, through my writing, and with my voice. Nike and Gatorade can find a new "face." I don't think their employees will suffer.
