Advertising

It was interesting this week to look at the gender advertisements in such a different way. I still didn’t agree with everything that was said on the website or in class, but I can see where someone might think the other things. It was interesting to see how some ads were seen as sexist, or to show that the man was more dominant than the woman. I had never thought about it. I don’t agree that just because people choose to be involved in pornography films or disturbing ads that it makes it alright. Just because one person screwed up or didn’t understand or realize the effects of their decision, it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t have an effect on others. It is giving them free range to do whatever they want. They are not held responsible for what they do. Unfortunately there is not a way to show that one specific ad negatively affected someone. I think it is the accumulation of many ads over and over.
