Reason # 8,491,205 of WHY I HATE MOST MEN

Madison Avenue has always been a hot bed of sexism.

 

That said, I don't think there has been much improvement other then the current Mad MEN running for cover by throwing a thin veil of acceptability over their sexism... sexism that seems to be perfect okay with virtually all other men.

The problem is that most men still see women just as they did in the 1800s...  as "chattel" that know how to cook, clean and "obey" in the bedroom.  Even the ones who "claim" to be male feminists (which is usually bullshit) rarely if ever object very strongly over sexism propaganda in the MSM, in advertising or even sports events.

Don't believe me?  Well compare the old blatant sexism to the current sexism and tell me that it isn't almost as bad...  I need a good laugh!

Here is what used to be "acceptable":

...and here is what is "currently acceptable:

See much difference?  Me neither!

What I see is propagation of a male dominating rape culture that says that men can sexualize women whenever they want and that women's sole purpose is to please men.

Just as others have said here about other forms of discrimination, shit like ^^ THIS ^^ will continue on because this is what is being taught (through continuous propaganda and by example) to today's kids.  

The only way this will stop is if the majority of men make it stop by boycotting products that sexualize women, vote sexist "we know what women need" politicians out of office (and that includes a LOT of Democrats!) and start teaching their sons AND their daughters that women are equal and that committing rape is a REAL crime.

I'm not holding out much hope for this to happen any time soon...  which is why I hate you bastards who are currently accepting this shit.

P.S.  This is also aimed at non-hetero men, as well, because they are some of the biggest misogynists on the planet!

Rant on, Amy, I'm with you!

The one that has been really bugging me is maybe a little more subtle but just as dangerous for girls to absorb: a Verizon commercial that shows up online where the guy shows up in a crowd of mostly women, they are the only closeup shots besides the guy, he takes the cell phone out of the woman's hands as she's taking a photo but phone has lag time - woman is so confused, passive, helpless - he replaces it with a verizon phone, tells the crowd what to do, all focus on the guy who has literally taken over this crowd of women.... while the women stand there - 'what does little ol' me do??' - saying nothing the whole ad, and gratefully accepts the phone back as the guy saves the day. The women in the crowd only show confusion and helplessness until the man fixes everything, then, big smiles....camera fade on man who saved the day/photo/phone/women's gathering.

GRRRrrrrrrrrr.......

I can only see little girls absorbing these kind of ads - that are ubiquitous! as they take on the passive roles shown to them, left, right, everywhere.

Blatant ads, subtle ads...

And as for the non-hetero males, who invented the completely hideous term for a women's crotch in pants being too tight:

"Camel toe" ?!?!?!?!?

How all wrong and how ugly a term can one come up with? I get so offended that the center of heaven, the literal gates of human creation and birth, has been labeled with such demeaning, diminishing, de-powering, ugly label. That term and the fashion people that throw it around so easily while the women with a too tight crotch look suitably horrified and embarrassed at 'how ugly' they look, pisses me off so much.

All hail the power and beauty of women's yonis! (my preferred term)

  1. the vulva, especially as a symbol of divine procreative energy symbolically represented by a circular stone.

There are more than a few women you should have problems with as well.

As I have said, I'd love to be a fly on the wall when you have your "discussion " with this example of feminist virtue:

Comment by Anna Herrington on March 29, 2018 at 8:40am

Ron, thanks for immediately showing the grossest example of woman on the post where a woman is making the point of showing how chronically and in endless variation men can make women feel diminished, marginalized, not valid or strong, worth putting down.

There are more than a few women you should have problems with as well.

Instead of posting an excusatory "She hit me back FIRST!" defense of sexism by immediately pointing out a few examples of women who are brainwashed by the male-centric bullshit, why aren't you thinking about what sort of paternalistic, male dominated environment that woman must have been exposed to for much of her life to make her think wearing something like that is okay?  

She's not the problem...  she is a victim.  The problem is the propaganda and pervasive sexism that we ALL are exposed to daily.

@Anna;  This woman and the millions like her are part of the reality of Amy's complaint. I truly wish that women like Amy could get into these women's heads.

Comment by Safe Bet's Amy on March 29, 2018 at 9:25am

I truly wish that women like Amy could get into these women's heads.

Ron, it's not her head that needs "getting into"...  it is the heads of the men who continue to sanction and promote sexism.

To paraphrase something you often repeat...  

"...the only way those 10%-er sexism will ever be "neutered" (because lawd knows we don't need them it breeding) is for the majority of white people men to stand up and tell them to knock their shit off and if they don't metaphorically kick their asses till they do!

The thing is it has to be  "their" people doing the "telling".  The 10%-er Men pay zero attention to what minorities/other minorities women say....""!

Everyone knows this is true, and it goes beyond ads into culture, watch an old movie and see how women were physically pushed around nearly constantly, but, advertising today is FULL of women making fun of men as less than "real men" ... for some reason Millennial and Gen X ads constantly make the male or father figure an idiot who can't figure out technology, can't cook, is wrong on some important issue, and is basically henpecked. Actually, it is not for "some reasons", it is because women are doing the buying of those products. Ads work both ways because they speak, not to people like me or Steel, but to the average schmucks, the hoi polloi is where the money is for the basic products. It is pathetic on both sides, though, women have been trying for equality since gathering was their job over hunting, and it will not stop anytime soon though what you don't show is the progress, there's been a lot, not nearly enough, but a lot.

One thing I FINALLY notice in advertising is that white men can be portrayed as being married and having families with Black Women ... this is recent, only in the last couple years and really only taking hold this year.

To build on what Amy is saying, saying that women are a large part of the problem is a lot like saying in a different context that Black cops are a large part of the unequal law enforcement problem. In both cases, the accused parties represent a noticeable portion of the problem but not ultimately the root of the problem. As to what the problem is attributable to, I think some of it is a sort of lifelong Stockholm Syndrome. 

I wonder if any schools make a point of teaching kids what insidious advertising and propaganda look like. It would make an interesting topic, though I’m not sure what kind of class it would make sense to put a unit like that into.
