Is This Sprint Ad Transphobic?

I can’t turn a corner without seeing the T-mobile ad with the pretty lady in a variety of gorgeous pink dresses. But this Sprint ad warning against an AT&T and T-mobile merger is kinda dodgy. I don’t necessarily disagree with the anti-monopoly politics of it (although I’ll leave that to the econ majors to explain to me). No, it’s the old man with a cigar in a pink polka dot dress and the co-option of AT&T’s tag line, “It makes sense if you don’t think about it,” that bugs me. Uh, men wearing women’s clothing makes sense if you don’t think about it? I’m all for spoofs, but this is kinda transphobic, don’t you think, Sprint? [Queerty]
