Old sexist adverts again – this time re men

HAPPY NOW.

A picture is worth a thousand strawmans. I’ve included ‘problematic’ implications.

ambitionpills
>Implying men are worthless without a fat wallet. Come on, we know what ambition means.
hemanvoice
>Implying bravado is the only true masculinity.
appeartaller
>Implying malnourishment (look it up) makes you less human.
artinstruction
>Implying men are useless if they do not take up an effete hobby.
marriedman
>Implying married men do no work around the house and are all lazy bums.
catchman
>Implying men are some strange hog-like creature which can be lured and trapped with fatty food.
improveface
>Implying ugly men are silly, socially clownish and don’t deserve respect.
drunkard
>Implying men are addicted, useless layabouts who need to be poisoned for the good of the family.
sexspoon
>Implying male sexuality is shameful, in your own marriage, like a schoolboy.

Pick-up scams are also old hat. There are much older ads that gave advice on how to talk, a coded phrase.
pickup1
>Implying the only thing a man cares about is women.
>Implying (all) men are desperate.
>Implying men value themselves based on how they please random people.
>Implying without sex, men are nothing.
trainyourwife
>Implying you married a dog. Who sides with an advert over their wife?
sexharmony
>Implying you’re doing sex wrong, whatever you’re doing, according to the male equivalents of spinsters, the bachelor. A random, single man knows your genitals and how to please your wife better than you do.
hypnotism
>Implying no conscious woman would willingly go out with you.
erectol
>Implying men must be ready and willing to have sex with anything at all times, like a pogo stick you can just hop on anytime the wife wants. Fuck consent, apparently.

>Implying love is a weakness, loneliness is a virtue, creepiness is male and men are users, sexual exploiters who don’t need women for anything like companionship.
gayboy
>Implying any man who takes pride in his appearance must be vain and well, gay.
millionlook
>Implying men are only valuable in marriage for their money.
magictie
>Implying a tie will keep your woman in line for when you inevitably fail to. A tie is more persuasive than you.
notopros
>Implying men are weak-willed and deviant.
learnyez
>Implying the only way to teach men anything is to beat it into them.
beatwife
>Implying domestic abuse is discipline, because a real man needs to strike a woman to lead her.
headachecap
>Implying a hat is brain food and men will buy this to be smarter. No, it literally uses the term brain-food.
manlybath
>Implying cleanliness is for sissies.
nervouspills
>Implying emotions are terrible. Feel shame.
malesedation
>Implying men need to be sedated.
husbandyouth
>Implying men are superficial and cannot appreciate personality and other invisible assets. Also, rather simple and visual, like a dog. About as much loyalty.
alonetime
>Implying a man who wants alone time is deficient in something, probably sex.
mustachetrainer
>Implying sagging mustaches are the male equivalent of sagging breasts.
meatjuice
>Implying … something about cavemen. I’m amazed that Juice Bro guy hasn’t tried to bring it back.
