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

    there are bias to this video. Firstly, the video only mentions statistics in Canada, does that mean the advertisements affects consumers around the world or just Canada?. Statistics can also bias depending on the data and the researchers' techniques. For example they mention the statistic of women having cosmetic surgery related alot in Canada might not be because of the result of advertisement but because the people their have the money to do cosmetic while in the third world countries advertisement that are consider as "sexism" does not affect the people at all simply they do not have the extra time and money for it. Secondly, the second part of the video where examples of gender roles reserves; the advertisements look ridiculous only because the models are the University students (whom have no modelling skills or the bodies to make the advertisements look better.) Lastly, the companies who did these sexism advertisement only do so because that is what the public would like to see; example they are selling beers, the consumers for beers are males so of course to make advertisement look appealing in order to attract consumers they would have females models with the beers.

    I truly understand and sympathize with the over all arch of this message however, what most people who watch this and became outraged probably didn't even think about is the effect that these and other adds have on MINORITY women and men. NOT ONE brown skin face was shown in this clip. Advertisers don't even think about how NOT seeing yourself can damage the psychie of young and budding minds. Even the pics of the men don't represent my brownskin friends. NOT A SINGLE BROWN FACE! Not an African American, Native American, Indian, Hispanic...NOTHING!!! So, when I see this add and see the statics regarding the dehumanizing of women it just seems that this is a Cauasaian issue only. African American women can't possibly feel dehumanized in advertising because they're not even being humanized. tough i guess...

    Maybe because the "brown skin" people doesnt want to take part in such advertisements/clips...
