Now, first amendment applies, I suppose - it is a form of "free speech". However, I also have freedom of speech, and I am going to use mine to let the sponsors of this misogynist crap know that they won't be getting any of my money if this is the sort of thing their company supports. If you don't like the idea of your money supporting this kind of filth, contacting Verizon is simple.

That takes care of any possiblity of my switching to their service. Ever. I e-mailed Lowell. Can you hear me now, Verizon? UNACCEPTABLE.
Thanks to Jules for this heads-up.
