Does everyone remember how the car company Saturn was marketed to women? Well, a Chinese company, Great Wall’s ORA brand, has decided that it should be more clear and transparent about its marketing. As a result the vehicle is so sexist that it may not be the most offensive feature of a setting especially for women to use during periods.
ORA has launched a new car called the Ballet Cat which, if tried, could not be a more direct rip-off of the classic Volkswagen Beetle. This is a sister model of the ORA Punk Cat which is a more gender neutral version of the pair, with some slight aesthetic differences between the two such as model-specific front and rear edges, trimming and color play car.
As far as beautiful and agile cars go, ballet cats are probably not the top. Of course, this may be the sexiest car ever made and it says something.
What is that ‘warm man mode’?
“Warm Man Mode” is specifically designed for women to use during menstruation Seriously, we’re not even making that up. As Carnegie China noted, the carmaker said that during periods, women may feel cold and then “panic.” So with a single touch the driver can put the car in warm man mode. This feature essentially introduces climate control to “warm the body and mind.” We think they are wondering how a warm man can comfort a woman.
But wait, there’s more!
Regardless of the intent, we still think other traits can be equally sexist Hear this gem from her people: “Whether traveling or dating, Ballerina has created a ‘secret place’ for women. Open the magic space, and there’s an exclusive makeup box inside. “
Surprisingly the humor doesn’t stop anywhere near that. The same section of the car copy continues: “When you look, the intimate LED super-size makeup mirror is in front of you, and the light source gear designed specifically for oriental women illuminates the skin and has a makeup effect.” More perfect. “
There is another special mode called “Wind and Wave” for bad weather and which automatically adjusts the air conditioning, lights and wipers, closes the windows and increases the distance if you have Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) turned on. On.
And that’s not how ORA fits the ballet cat – wait for it – a selfie camera that can upload your photos and videos directly to social media sites. Who can leave home without it?

Oh, and ladies, they’re not entirely sure you’re okay with driving without help so it’s made “Lady Driving Mode” which makes it easy to drive using adaptive cruise control, voice-controlled parking and voice-controlled reverse, among other features. We’re not sure why it’s not capable of every drive.
Imagine how foolish it would be for a brand to intentionally cut off a person’s entire penis by marketing a car so strictly only to women. Many people have heard of “Chick Car” but it is a completely different level that some Doltish people try to get a good gatekeeper of Miata.
We’ve considered other vehicles and features like BMW’s Gentleman Function that existed at least until 2016, but the truth is that we can’t think of anything as blatantly sexist as Ballet Cat.
