A billboard in a North Carolina town has some women there ready to protest.

The Charlotte Observer reports that a billboard with the message 'Real men provide. Real women appreciate it' has caused a stir in the Winston - Salem areas. Area boutique - owner Molly Grace has organized a peaceful protest of the sign. Here's her group's message on Facebook:

We are NOT protesting that the sign is capable of existing, or the people who put it up, or the ad agency, or the right to put it up. We are protesting patriarchy and sexism, and that this antiquated way of thinking about women exists at all. We are protesting the implied demand that women be silent and appreciate, regardless of whatever circumstances, their role as non-providers.

The owner of the billboard says the party responsible for the message does not want to be identified.

Do you think this is offensive? Seems to me it's just someone trying to stir things up and get attention of some kind. I think it's best to just ignore things like this. Do you think it's worth a protest?
