It’s been many years since the advertisements below were acceptable in American culture; advertisements that portrayed women as inferior to men and undeserving of respect.
America has come a long way since these ads, right? Well not exactly, we have just come full circle.
Pop Quiz Time!
Which is the real advertisement from a 2009 magazine?
If you answered “A” you are correct, and if you answered A because the woman is smarter than the man, you are on the right track. Today, men, not women, are portrayed as inferior intellectually and even physically, and therefore can be disrespected at any opportunity. Men are reduced to incompetent children that women must “put up with.” Watch this new commercial for Windows 7 – Cloud.

The next generation of boys need someone to look up to, someone worthy of this role. They need to learn to be proud of themselves and to enjoy fulfilling their purpose within the family.
Men, don’t let the media dictate your worth . Embrace your masculinity and have respect for yourself.
