    Man i was thinking the same exact thing lol. Golds does have some interesting thread topics some times though. Back OT

    This is the way the world of political correctness is today. Seriously people get so offended these days over the littlest things or are quick to use the term racist or sexist that company's have to do stuff like this. Honestly most men couldn't care less its part of the metal state of men that we tend to be more care free and we just don't give a sh*t. Sad to see though honestly if people would just not get so butt hurt of little things we wouldn't have things like this. Welcome to the political correct world. Its totally Bull Sh*t.

    The answer to your question is probably societal. You may want to ask a social scientist for an answer. Not sure you could ever get an honest answer though.

    If a woman was portrayed as stupid, feminists would get up in arms about it.

    I don't see where the problem is. Creative ads where the goal is to make publicity and people laugh. Now if you cannot handle the fact that us, as men, can also get stereotyped, this probably mean you need to check your priorities.

    If men were as likely to get up in arms, the male idiot character archetype would cease to exist. If society changes enough, there may eventually come a time when men become humiliated or emasculated enough that they will actively protest this stereotype. But right now most men are confident enough with their masculinity that they don't care.

    By the way, it's not really just women protesting that inhibits the negative portrayal of women on TV, it's the fact that doing so would lose companies business. Even if nobody decided to protest, there would still be negative impacts of such a commercial. Women (and many men) would become offended and, whether or not they actively protest the company, they would refuse to do business with it. People protesting a company is a PR issue; people not wanting to buy from a company is a business issue. Both the business and the PR would suffer by showing negative female stereotypes, whereas neither suffers much if at all from showing negative male stereotypes.

    In my experience it's because adverts are largely created by boring, stupid people who write in boring stupid characters of either gender into their adverts. I mean look at this:



    Annoying and ridiculous.

    yes women are superior than men in some things and men are superior than women in some things. the odd thing is that women tend less to taught this fact when it goes against them trying to perform unless it becomes clear that that particular woman just isn't good. ever heard of the song "anything you can do I can do better"? the same ideal that women are not only equal to men in every avenue, but actually are somehow better. some women believe that women are just as strong or stronger then men physically, just as smart or smarter than men, and just as caring if not more so than men. while there are men believe these false claims as well, no one takes the men seriously, while women have a relatively large following by other women and men as well believing them to be the pinnacle of the human race.
    First off, thank you for the links, they were very interesting.
    I understand what you mean now, thank you for explaining it.
    I really think all these ideas are social problems.
    I had something to say to agreement.. but honestly my brain just blew up or something and I can't think anymore -.-

    It doesn't mean a woman is smart than a man, or a man is smarter than a women.

    There are just as many, if not more, commercial that depict women as lesser than men or that a woman's place is in the household. I dare you to look at any commercial for Detergent, Dryers, Washing Machines, Clothing Softener, Dishes, and most in-house cooking appliance. You will find they are aimed at women. They feature women, not men.
    In all these commercials, they take place in-side the house. This is considered the woman's sphere. It shows that women have power inside their households. This can be considered sexist in itself, because that means a man has no power or intelligent thought when it comes to the house.

    You can look at ANY commercial these days and go, "That's sexist."
    YOU ARE A LIER or really fooled. Feminism is about securing privilage for woman over everyone else on the planet >.<

    yea there are definitely a lot of social problems. some men still regard women as nothing more than sexual objects and some women still regard men as complete idiots. fortunately a lot of these stigmas are changing and men and women are treating each other a bit better but still not as good as it could be.

    LOL ill just eat a bag..

    the fibre one commercials hilarious..

    the simple reason is men know they arent totally retarded and dont mind being made fun of in commericals, movies, or whatever.. just look at Monty Python as a prime example. or Faulty Towers

    its very common to see the stereotypical male drunk portrayed in films.. rarely will u ever see a dumb female character. because women would get in a knot over it.

    It's because in most families, women do the shopping. It's as simple as that. The advertisers aren't trying to convince the men or the kids, they're trying to convince the person who actually spends the money in the family. But really, there are courses and books on this. I won't even bother getting too much into this, because I could write a whole essay on it.

    White men run America for the most part, the least we can do is let commercials mock us.
