6 Sexists Ads For Products that Have Nothing To Do With Sex
Have you ever noticed how we are constantly bombarded by semi-naked women on a daily basis, yet somehow it's okay because they're just ads? Yeah, it doesn't make sense to me either. I still don't understand why a woman in a bikini sells a burger since women in bikinis and burgers really have nothing to do with one another, but then again, I also don't understand a lot of things about marketing (like, why are Super Bowl ads released ahead of time?)
But apparently companies everywhere from Budweiser to BMW are convinced that sex will sell their products. And hey, maybe it does. The problem being that naked and half-naked women in advertisements are becoming a new norm, and it just further portrays the idea that women's bodies are things that can be consumed, not things we control as people.
But hey, they're just ads right? It's not like they're specially designed to seep into our subconscious, or like we see them all day long, or like that's been true since we were little girls developing our sense of self. Or anything.
In "honor" of all this nonsense, here are some examples of ads that use naked women for things that have nothing to do with sex or nakedness of any sort.
