Moen’s Ad Is Clogged With Gender Bias

Moen’s new advertisement is certainly making a statement, although we can’t say that it’s a good one. At first glance, it’s difficult to even determine what the company is trying to sell. Necklaces? Dresses? Those would be good guesses, but Moen’s actually hoping you’ll buy one of their new sinks. By jamming their real product Continue reading


Talk Dirty To Me

Jason Derulo wants you to talk dirty

In the latest single and music video from Jason Derulo, he wants you to talk dirty and he also doesn’t need you to speak English for it. He doesn’t need to “speak the language” since the women’s “booty don’t need explaining”. The fact that the majority of the women in this video are tropes regarding Continue reading

Viktor & Rolf’s Bonbon smells like misogyny

Viktor & Rolf have gift-wrapped their new Bonbon fragrance…and their model, too! It’s hard to tell what in the world this advertisement is showcasing—the words tell us one thing, but the visual is quite a different story. Here’s an excerpt from the Saks Fifth Avenue website, Bonbon’s exclusive carrier: “It is a haute confection that fuels Continue reading

Ladies: Wax that body or become undesirable, says Veet

When Veet released this particular ad campaign, it was met with protest and outrage, especially considering that it was suggesting that if women don’t shave, they risk becoming a “dude” and that’s the worst thing that could happen to a woman.

Target fails at Photoshop

2014 seems to be the year of the Photoshop fail! Target was heavily panned and criticized as a photo of a model in a two-piece bathing suit online had a glaring issue. In manipulating the image, the person using the image-editing software erased a large percentage of the model’s thigh and crotch area, and also gave her Continue reading

Revlon: Sexism Is On

Revlon’s advertisement claims that their 72 new colors of nail enamel will inspire love in consumers, by boldly announcing, “Passion is on!” But there is absolutely nothing affectionate about a pair of disembodied hands being draped across a man’s face. By neglecting to show the owner of the hands’ face or body, this ad separates Continue reading

Sexy Hair’s New Ad Is Out Of Style

Over fifty years after her death, Marilyn Monroe still remains a pop culture icon. In their new advertisements, Sexy Hair capitalizes upon the late actress and model’s immortal charm in the hopes of selling more cans of hairspray. Some of the images used are more risque than others, but the quote in this particular ad Continue reading

CodeBabes: Who knew “strip-coding” was a thing?

With 22 videos that take users through lessons of coding in HTML, CSS, and other languages, CodeBabes claims to be a “50/50 entertainment and education” site for teaching people to code. However, the way CodeBabes has chosen to teach coding is by having scantily clad women as their instructors strip every time a user gets Continue reading

The “selfie” is a part of today’s social network map: Taking a photograph of yourself and posting it on Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook is a common practice. However the newest app for selfie-takers isn’t such a great idea due to the way it is continuing to perpetuate a beauty standard that most folks don’t fit Continue reading

Suit Supply supplies more misogyny

Advertisers are constantly trying to find new ways to attract consumers’ eyes and interest in their products. Sadly, the way this tends to happen is by having a woman’s body be scantily-clad. Suit Supply is a Dutch clothing line (with stores in the U.S.) that makes suits for men, and their latest advertising campaign is Continue reading
