That ad for a sports betting agency, where the woman spanks the bloke on the bum with a horse whip thingy?
Now, I'm no prude, but I can't help but think... if it were reversed, and the guy hit the girl with a whip, sh!t would certainly hit the fan and the ad would probably be pulled off the air.
So, how come society condones this, oh lets call it belittling (because that would no doubt be the argument if it were the other way around) of men and it's accepted, light hearted etc.. yet like I said, switch the genders and all of a sudden it's sexual harrassment.
I'm not saying I agree or disagree with the ad, just think that it's a strange, hypocritical little world we live in and things like this make no sense to me.

Yes I hate this 'reverse sexism'. There are lots of ads that make men look dumb, belittle men etc. I can't stand it and I wonder what my son thinks/will think when he understands the ads.

Sounds like sexism, it is rife in many a work place against men, Im honest. At hubbies work x amount of women must be promoted regardless of abilty ( many have failed and work suffers), but they have a 'quota' so unfair that we have now descimination against men for being men. I find it sexist to the core that there is a 'woman quota' . Yay I earnt position as you had to give it to a woman. I agree 20 years ago discrimination, but now no. I have never seen any descrimination against women in my workplace...and I work in a 'man' field casual.
To me a 'women quota' is even more derogatory
Don't get how a man being humilated is funny but a woman it is discrimination - Im a staunch feminist who aborrs anything against women. Just don't get it
Sorry looks like I have abducted the thread.
I agree fully with you men deserve respect too

Personally I can't understand how we condone an ad about vaginal discharge by a naked woman!!!' Omg I hate that ad with a passion!!!! Can't comment in the other ad as haven't seen it but totally agree with op. why do we allow one but not the other. Tbh though I don't find much offensive (other than vaginal discharge!) and I'm not much of a feminist nor very politically correct!

It's not crass or vulgar like the toilet paper ad about gripples.
Vaginal discharge and nudity are not sexual, unlike linx ads or erectile disruption ads....
What is not to condone?
