One for Normal People, One for Women

Via MsMagazine, a series of images advertising basically the same thing, except while one ad is at “people in general” the other is “specifically women.”

The problem: This makes being female a “weird” thing and being male is normal. EVERYBODY is male. Oh, except when you’re female. Then I guess we’ll have something just for you awkward things.

(You may want to ask, why did I paint this as male vs female when gender really isn’t that simple? Well, because let’s have an honest moment here, the common perspective on gender is not that sophisticated. I think if it were, we may not see this quite so much.)
