In A politically correct age, they seem like outrageous anachronisms. And there is no doubt these adverts – many taken from the first half of the last century – reveal just how much women used to be caricatured as downtrodden housewives or hair-brained office girls.
The outrageously politically incorrect adverts from the time equality forgot
1952: Is your coffee pressure packed for extra freshness? If hubby can tell you’re not making Chase & Sanborn coffee for him, well, you’ve been warned…
1953: You don’t need a knife, a bottle opener or even your husband to unscrew the cap of this bottle – just a little twist of the Alcoa HyTop Closure, made of pure aluminium, and that ketchup is ready to pour
1946: Women are seen as indecisive, trying to squeeze into something too small, worried someone else is wearing the same dress and then taking it back to the shop. Men need only one look at the Pacific label to know it suits you, sir
1953: Husband furious because you’ve missed the post? The Pitney-Bowes Postage Meter prints the stamp and seals the envelope all in one go.
1961: When you can’t wait for your dinner, give her a Kenwood Chef food mixer and let her have some fun preparing your favourite dish
1970: Your wife won’t be able to stall the car or grind the gears – and there’s even one pedal fewer to confuse her with the Mini Automatic
Real funny stuff huh.
Ridiculing women in art, jokes, in film and theatre is a universally accepted disease.
Leftards don’t “take offense” unless, of course you name your Teddy Bear Muuuuhamad
Then you get censored worldwide and deserve public lashings.
Yes. Muzlims actually “lash” people.
Consider first that traditionally, for centuries, women had NO professional, legal, or educational equality with men.
Men could rape, pummel or beat the living daylights out of their wives with impunity.
Elementary,secondary education and Higher education were generally UNavailable to women.
Womens reproductive system was considered the basis of her bodily functions. Menstruation and childbirth were looked upon as illnesses.
Women often donned long gowns with trailing petticoats, not exactly conducive for walking, let alone athletic endeavors.
Worldwide, women had been indocrinated that the purpose and goal of her life was to marry, have children, and of course…….obey her husband.
Women were viewed as being feeble minded, frail, physically weak, vulnerable, and above all: intellectually inferior to men.
Not to mention small brained, highly emotionally unstable, and irrational..and those were her strong points!
Given the condescending and rife violence and abuse of women worldwide, the jokes tend to lose a bit of their hilarity, don’t they?
