Kaitlyn here. I joined last fall.
The only man on the team is Ben.
Yes, I have seen it and every time I see it again I am baffled by the fact that it’s still playing.
It’s just so insulting to everyone - men, women, the institution of marriage, the concept of being an adult. It’s just so sexist and every time I see it I wonder why he bothers staying with her. Though I wonder that all the time when it comes to entertainment that has those kinds of jokes. You don’t have to stay married if you hate your wife so much you have to be bribed to listen to her, you know.
Actually, it is a big deal. Gendered products like this - the same products, marketed as dainty to women but EXTREEEME to men? That’s a huge deal. There is a huge disparity in the way the genders are portrayed in marketing, and the way they’re marketed to. That needs to stop across the board, not just where it seems “big.”
But that is what is happening here - she’s not shearing herself, she’s an object, she’s an animal.
And the ads do hurt people.
It’s an ad featuring a woman having her clothes sheared off of her.
How is that not offensive? She’s a substitute for an animal.
Having her clothes sheared off of her by a man.
People are not upset over nothing, people are not trying way too hard to be PC (hate that phrase), it’s offensive. Just because you don’t think so, doesn’t mean it is.
We can’t think of a creative way to sell gum, so… BOOBS!
1. Does the image show only part(s) of a sexualized person’s body?BMW
2. Does the image present a sexualized person as a stand-in for an object?
3. Does the image show sexualized persons as interchangeable?
4. Does the image affirm the idea of violating the bodily integrity of a sexualized person who can’t consent?
5. Does the image suggest that sexual availability is the defining characteristic of the person?
6. Does the image show a sexualized person as a commodity that can be bought and sold?
Red Tape Shoes
This ad doesn’t do us women any favors.
no JCPenney. I liked your mother’s day and father’s day ads but what the shit is this
Yeah, no. This is less an ideal.
Step right up and get your very own long-legged beauty sold here! Served chilled! Not to mention they’re even open 24 hours. Are women really so disposable that you can buy them as if they’re items in a vending machine? Check out how they’re posing, as if they’re vying for his attention - pick me! pick me! They’re literally trapped behind the glass. Is purchasing sex really this man living out his fantasy? And all this for buying Red Tape shoes.
