Here’s an example of sexism in the media. It’s very subtle, but it’s insidious, and it’s everywhere.
Men’s washroom and women’s washroom, each with an ad in the mirror. Both ads are for the same car. However, the text is slightly changed - in the men’s, it tells you that you look a million bucks but would look even better in that car. In the women’s, it gives you concern that you’re having a bad hair day but that’d be okay if you had that car.
The men’s ad assumes you’re confident and powerful and tries to optimize that image. The women’s ad undermines your opinion of yourself and tells you how to fix it.
Seriously. That shit is fucked.
oh no not advertising thats using gender targeting. seriously calm down women have bad hair days and they’re if you buy this car no one’s gonna give a shit because you have this nice car. the men’s one this is an executive type of car and if a man is dressed up smart because he’s at work or at meeting he might think i’d look quite good in this car i might buy it . THATS ALL IT IS STOP READING INTO THINGS TO MUCH.
this girl on the animal crossing online thing was telling me about how she was going into secondary school this september and she kept disagreeing with me about how terrible secondary school is well she’s going to be in for a fucking shock
