this is a horrific trend, and yet another sign of the ugly world we live in.
this time, a father refused to marry his daugher to an older man. the result: the family gets sprayed with acid, and two are now near death.
what does it mean when men go to such lengths? is it not problematic enough that a father can ‘give away’ his daughter? now women have to fear death if they don’t submit to the will of another man.
Sad, sad, sad. You can read the whole story here.
Geeeeender roles, and at the worst age too.
let’s think past the obvious wrongs of this ad.
is anyone else bothered by women being constantly referred to as ‘girls’? it’s constant verbal subjugation, and it is stuck in the vocabulary of my of us. by calling a woman a girl we make her smaller and weaker being. similarly, in places like South Africa where racism is ever present, black labours of rich and white people, often men into their 50s, will be called ‘boys’. they, as well as women, continue to be put down.
we cement inferiority with our words.
i could be wrong. what do you think?
this coupon should offend you.
dress your boys with it too.
Sounds a dam lot like a gender role to me. Even when employed, they must be serving people, and their education must serve this purpose too… because men can’t hand out drinks. Right.
Is anyone else noticing a trend here?
Check out the other BMW ad posted a few days ago if you haven’t.
Because women are supposed to wear make up to ‘get’ men, then serve them to keep them.
Thanks, sexist religious doctrine.
People like this continue to ‘exist’ all around us.
Kenwood would be in debt.
Thanks for joining the rest of the commercial media is reaffirming this message, Peta.

And if you’re daughter saw this ad: what would you think?
Of course you can… if we hadn’t maybe we wouldn’t be living in patriarchy today.
Sad, but why does it have to still be true?
