19 Ridiculously Sexist Adverts From The Present Day

Thanks to the Self-Rescuing Princess Society for these.

If you thought that casually sexist advertising died with the vintage era, get ready for a shock.

1. Pritt made a pink glue for girls.

2. And apparently “boots”, “swinging” and “magic” are boy-words.

3. Obviously girls can’t do maths…

4. … Because their heads are full of other matters.

5. Then there’s this.

7. This image advertises a game for children.

8. Let’s all celebrate freedom with a pubescent waxing session!


10. This isn’t an advert for sun tan lotion, or curtains. It’s for beer.

11. As is this one.

12. Did Dora actually need a makeover?

She never seemed like one of the “makeover” kids.

13. Wow. Way harsh, Tai.

16. Reduced fat string cheese is female because when women eat string cheese they worry about fat content.

When they eat string cheese.

18. Oh, you think this vodka advert is in poor taste?

19. Try this one.

It’s worth noting that this ad was withdrawn and the company apologised, however.
