Usually when we have our periods, according to advertising, we're only allowed to ride horses, run and swim.
    Providing we're wearing crisp, white, linen trousers or bikinis with a sarong that's blowing in the breeze whilst we're at the beach. I must be weird as I prefer dark coloured tracky-daks.

    Once you start to deconstruct ads I think it's safe to say that well over half of ads that have a male or female in them could be argued as being sexist.

    Hmmm... so there's ONE ad (which admittedly I haven't seen) where a woman playfully uses a horse whip on her partner (or just some random guy... like I said, haven't seen it), and it's sexist just because it's a woman hitting a man...

    BUT...

    There's HOW MANY ads out there where almost-nude women with flawless bodies are flogging off products that have nothing to do with either them or their near-nudity?

    I dunno... I'm not really feeling, "Oh, the poor ill-treated men!" on this one...

    I pretty much hate all ads, each one is as bad as the last. Except I have been enjoying the aami/rhonda ads recently :thumbup:

    Nope, steared well away from it, don't want to know what it means, and don't want to spend time reading about it, thank you very much!
