If Your Product Were Any Good You Wouldn’t Need Sexism To Sell It

11 Sep

Sociological Images has a great post right now with commercials for Slim Jim’s.

If you click on that one you can find the others, but they’re not very good so I’m not going to put them all here.

Want some more sexist commercials?

And my personal favorite overtly sexist commercial of all time (this one can be watched at work as long as you turn the sound off and your boss isn’t behind you).

My point here?


And about the masculinity policing in the Slim Jim’s advertisements check out these awesome Ye Olde pictures that prove that the conceptions we have of masculinity are recent and arbitrary.
