The “feminist movement” had a lot to do with it. Men were shown in commercials and on TV programs to be wimpy; wishy-washy; unable to make good decisions. It was the feminization of males. Fortunately, some survived.
Then, they used the brute; over-bearing; brawling; lying, etc. type of males and made the implication that all men were like these. Absurd ..!!
TODAY, I see commercial after commercial about little girls acting smarter than their fathers; showing the fathers didn’t have the sense God gave a goose. While this might occasionally be true, I don’t like the seeds these types of commercials are planting in the minds of our young ladies.
If you want to stop it .. just start a letter writing campaign to some of these advertisers; and be sure you keep track of the program you were watching when you saw the commercial.
“Men were shown in commercials and on TV programs to be wimpy; wishy-washy; “
There is an ATT commercial on that drives me nuts. It has a group of realtors, four or five women and one man.
The man is a pathetic caricature,the woman all strong.
