    Video: What if Gender Roles in Advertising Were Reversed? via magazine.good.is

    After watching this and reading a lot of the comments below it becomes clear that the traditional ideals of masculinity are valued far more highly than the traditional ideals of femininity. Am I wrong in thinking that it is supremely sexist to laugh at men in traditionally feminine poses whilst applauding women in traditionally masculine poses? Can we not just smash up these ridiculous signifiers already? Maybe we could just pick out the best human traits and that might actually change something. There's nothing in wrong in being masculine, feminine, anywhere inbetween etc but there's an awful lot right in being loving and courageous and generally accepting of one another.

    Once AGAIN (with all due respect) another MAN, saying 'don't blame me it's not my fault...Is that what you call doing your job? making woman inferior in society. Or does it just help you along? Are the Arabs good providers too? They can't even look at a pretty face without thinking of rape! This awareness is apart of our consciousness and in some countries, they are in power, ruling populations. So yes I blame MAN for this pickle. They still get off on it, and it helps them while they work. PEACEFULLY of course. Sexual roles are parallel to "support roles" some dudes don't even like women on top in sex because they feel emasculated. The comments below mention the advertising companies aim more toward men because they SPEND more money. So women get left out when it's time to get the upper hand in a sexy ad. As a full-time-working-individual, who's 'out there' everyday, making money, I agree. Men spend more money on dumb things. and dumb things are toxic, that convince you to buy them again...The money that pays to generate these ads is toxic. Men bully women because they are toxic. So go out with your friends, eat more toxic, it's ok, no one knows!

    Wow, really? Did you really just stereotype Arabs as rapists? What does that have to do with anything about advertisements? And what exactly do you mean "Is that what you call doing your job." What exactly are YOU doing about this situation? You're here complaining that MEN are the reason for this situation, that women are so subjectively used in such ways in advertisements. And I absolutely love how you refer to men as "dudes." Great word of choice in your argument. Men aren't the only ones who spend loads of money. Last I remember, women do as well. So both genders spend money, therefore the issue is gender-neutral and should not even be pointed at a single gender at all. In the end, it's money that causes such issue in advertisements.
