View Full Version : Misandry Abounds in Commercials Now Rant...

I personally think that ALL corporations are now featuring misandry in their commercials.

The only thing that surprises me about it is that I hardly hear a whimper from men.

I think that part of the problem is that society's PC force is preaching "acceptance" for EVERYTHING these days. Yes, sometimes it IS appropriate to accept things, but the embrace of the female mentality of acceptance seems to convey that it's best to just ride the wave and NOT challenge things or complain about them or express any unpopular opinions--ESPECIALLY when those opinions run counter to ANYTHING pertaining to "gender equality."

It's better for men to just take it lying down, and adopt the neutered dog mentality because you can't change anything anyway. So why complain about it? THIS is what more and more women actually seem to desire in men. It serves them better. Hardly anybody likes or has an appreciation for a straight, outspoken man--especially gays and non-attractive women.

I can think of very few exceptions to the commercial misandry rule; perhaps the corporations that are targeting to white upper class males--BMW comes to mind--have no financial interest in making the men look stupid--but I'm sure if I tried hard enough I could find one of their commercials that placates to women and makes the men look like buffoons.

I was watching TV last night and a Geico commercial aired, portraying a bride and groom at the alter, when suddenly the bride leaves the groom at the alter and pursues a new car instead.

I was watching this with my wife, and she knows very well how I feel about the commercials that are being aired these days. I looked at her and said, "I wish they would air ONE fvucking commercial this year in which the woman is portrayed as the fvucking idiot. Just ONE."

Of course, men can't call women "idiots" because that would be misogynistic. OK for a woman to say that about men, though.

In some countries they would shoot the person who would even THINK about making such commercials.

Good old America....land of the fat and the greed.

Anything for a dollar.

Send the men off to war to die and repay them by portraying them as idiots in commercials.

But you're a man so you should just ACCEPT IT.

I appreciate the response and it's good to know that at least one other guy feels the same way. It does bother me that when a guy challenges or complains, he's labeled as "insecure", or a "womanhater." etc. What really surprises me is the opposition from guys--I can understand women resisting, etc., and even a difference in opinion from other dudes. Corporations pay millions to air TV ads because they know how powerful and influential they can be, yet the consensus seems to be, "No big deal; just accept it; be a man. Don't hate. Be secure." .

Just imagine if the roles were reversed in these ads--imagine a white guy who hands a dirty plate to a black female Maytag repairwoman crouched beneath the kitchen counter--and licks the scraps from the white guy's plate...can you imagine the controversy? Maytag would pull that ad in a freaking second.

I have no issue with misandry as long as feminists don't get butt hurt about misogyny.

TV is valium for the masses. I believe that people are heavily influenced by commercials. And who are the commercials aimed at? Women. You think any man would buy a product that is shown to represent him in a poor light?

The last one I saw was for a husband who bought a brand-x dishwasher detergent and he gets reamed out for it. And a 3rd-party guardian angel pops out of the woodwork to save him with what he should have bought in the 1st place. This supports the commercial's argument that men are too dumb to know what to buy. At least the wife should have handed him a list that specifically said buy Cascade, then he'd have no excuse.

Yeah I personally find it very hard to believe that anybody would actually argue that media advertising doesn't influence a person's thoughts and actions. There's a reason companies spend millions and millions of dollars on ads every year!

This webpage that I'm typing from now has THREE ads--top; middle; and bottom.

The small-mindedness and lack of vision in some of the replies is astounding to me. A true revelation of ignorance of what is happening in our society.

That which is portrayed in the media is precisely the very thing that is brainwashing both men and women and perpetuating women's lack of accountability and lack of respect for men. It is also the very thing that is perpetuating men's lack of respect for themselves.

I encourage all men who read this to become proactively involved in being a part of the solution. Don't let society, your feminized education, the media, and women steamroll over you.

Women have a herd mentality and will absorb and integrate whatever they see in the media. They take 100% of their social cues from the media and from other women.

The media is 100% "true" to them. I personally believe that they do not (cannot?) differentiate between reality and that which is fed to their emotional psyches.

It's probably men's weakness and fear of banishment from the pvssy that has caused all this. We need men with some SPINE to stand up to companies that perpetuate attitudes that put us down. If enough men stand up, they WILL listen, because they will perceive it affecting their bottom line.

Well I certainly won't argue that media advertising hasn't influenced your thoughts and actions.


This webpage that I'm typing from now has THREE ads--one at the top; middle; and bottom.

In all honesty, I hadn't noticed. What is being advertised?


The small-mindedness and lack of vision in some of the replies is astounding to me. A true revelation of ignorance of what is happening in our society.

What astounds me is that people even watch commercials - let alone allow themselves to react to them. The news media and advertising media is out to do one thing, pull your strings. If you allow yourself to be a puppet, that's on you. Chastising people who are intelligent enough to rise above the manipulative attempts of media doesn't really reflect well on you.

But, just like you are not responsible for the female oppression women historically suffered, many women today, don't support these types of ads and images of men being illustrated as inferior to women.

Thanks for relating that and I do agree--Nickelodeon appeals to kids so of course they're going to make the kids look cool and the parents...not so cool. I can understand why the execs at Nick would do that. It actually makes sense to me.

You know those anti-tobacco ads that you see today? A college professor told me that the ad execs purposely wanted the parents to HATE those ads. The rationale being, they wanted to appeal only to kids--and if kids see their parents hating on the ads, then the kids will pay more attention to them. I believe he's right. Alienate one particular demographic or sex or genre so as to win the target audience.

It's probably the same thing that's happening in commercials with men and women now--make the woman look smart and assertive and in control, and she'll buy that brand of dishwash detergent or car insurance or whatever. But the common denominator that I'm seeing is that the men are being portrayed as lazy stupid fat jolly clueless types. NEVER in control or strong or favorably typecasted.

Not sure if I agree that (straight white) males are actually manufacturing the sexist commercials. The bottom line is PROFIT--if it makes the white man richer, then he'll sign off on it. Nothing else matters more. If I had to bet, I would say that gay males and lesser-attractive (physically) women get together for brainstorming sessions and come up with the ads. I have read that the founder of Progressive Insurance (Peter Lewis) was extremely pro-gay (not clear to me if he was gay himself), and in my mind, that company is one of the worst when it comes to portraying men stupidly. You have a mediocre and dorky-looking woman (so that other women watching the commercials won't feel threatened or jealous) who seems to be loved by everybody, and the couples in those commercials ALWAYS portray a strong & loud take-charge kind of women with a meeky bi-sexualish quiet-looking husband lurking in the background.

Whoever 's making these ads, they've figured out that women are now making the buying decisions, so these companies will do whatever it takes to make women feel special and in control--even if means marginalizing men in the process.

The media is 100% "true" to them. I personally believe that they do not (cannot?) differentiate between reality and that which is fed to their emotional psyches.

It's probably men's weakness and fear of banishment from the pvssy that has caused all this. We need men with some SPINE to stand up to companies that perpetuate attitudes that put us down. If enough men stand up, they WILL listen, because they will perceive it affecting their bottom line.

At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having (read) it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul."

Another thought on this--if you would have posted up an image featuring a photo of a guy with a caption beneath about women being easy lays, there would probably be outrage. Remarks about "Male chauvinist pig" and "insecure angry man" would probably get posted up.

Notice there hasn't been a single negative remark about the image you posted up. From the women or the men.

When a woman talks about how easy it is to sexually manipulate men, it's funny.

If a man jokes about how easy it is to lay women, he's a male chauvinist pig who disrespects women.

If you put a woman on a pedestal and try to protect her from the rat race, you are a male chauvinist pig; if you stay home and do the housework, you're a pansy.

If you work too hard, there is never time for her; if you donít work enough, youíre a good-for-nothing bum.

If she has a boring, repetitive job with low pay, itís exploitation; if you have a boring repetitive job with low pay, you should get off your rear and find something better.

If you get a promotion ahead of her, itís favoritism; if she gets a job ahead of you, itís equal opportunity.

If you mention how nice she looks, itís sexual harassment. If you keep quiet, itís male indifference.

If you cry, youíre a wimp; if you donít, youíre insensitive.

If you make a decision without consulting her, youíre a chauvinist. If she makes a decision without consulting you, sheís a liberated woman.

If you ask her to do something she doesnít enjoy, thatís domination. If she asks you, itís a favor.

If you appreciate the female form and frilly underwear, you are a pervert. If you donít, you are gay.

If you like a woman to shave her legs and keep in shape, you are sexist. If you donít, you are unromantic.

If you try to keep yourself in shape, you are vain. If you donít, you are a slob.

If you buy her flowers, you are after something. If you donít, you are not thoughtful.

If youíre proud of your achievements, you are full of yourself. If youíre not, you have no ambition.

If she has a headache, she is tired; if you have a headache, you are gay.

If you want it too often, you are oversexed. If you donít, youíre gay.

My wife appreciates me. I am sure that the vast majority of the wives of men on this site appreciate them. Are we all reticent homosexuals?



"I wish they would air ONE fvucking commercial this year in which the woman is portrayed as the fvucking idiot. Just ONE."

You wouldn't be happy with commercials where no one is portrayed negatively? Why is it important to you that women be portrayed as idiots?


In some countries they would shoot the person who would even THINK about making such commercials.

Seems like you would be happy to live in a country where we don't shoot people for making commercials.

You should be ashamed of yourself for spewing this filth. Thousands and thousands of women have served our country in combat and many of them have given up their lives. Your suggestion that only men serve is not only fantastically stupid, it is also horribly disrespectful to the families who have lost their daughters, wives, mothers, and sisters in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere.

Wow I appreciate that--one of a few on this thread who goes against the grain and speaks his mind without regard for approval. Kudos to you.

This thread has really raised my consciousness. I didn't expect everyone to agree with me (especially women) and that's OK, but most of the condescending and arrogant remarks are coming from the guys--and that surprises me. I personally think that a lot of guys don't really feel the same way that they speak. Maybe they're just not willing to think and speak for themselves--for many people it's easier to join the group and think and speak in group terms rather than in individual terms. And that's pretty common everywhere I go, whether it's the Internet or on the job or wherever.

But it bothers me that too many guys are allowing themselves to go along with the game and be PROGRAMMED. They seem destined to carry this cavalier attitude throughout their whole lives, defending women at whatever cost, but even more importantly, never speaking what's really on their mind.

All this thread has done for me is to make sure that I'm being especially vigilant lately in checking ANY female(s) who try to talk down to me. I'm CONVINCED that TV ads are reflecting the state of the world right now. I think women and gay men are perpetuating these TV ads (and please--let's not act like none of us ever acts likes a racist or homophobe. None of us is perfect--black, white, gay, straight, etc. I'm white and I do tend to utter the N and F words from time to time. Everyone's had their less-than-perfect moments. Human nature IMO.)

[QUOTE=Espi1971;1236715483]I personally think that ALL corporations are now featuring misandry in their commercials.

The only thing that surprises me about it is that I hardly hear a whimper from men.

I think that part of the problem is that society's PC force is preaching "acceptance" for EVERYTHING these days. Yes, sometimes it IS appropriate to accept things, but the embrace of the female mentality of acceptance seems to convey that it's best to just ride the wave and NOT challenge things or complain about them or express any unpopular opinions--ESPECIALLY when those opinions run counter to ANYTHING pertaining to "gender equality."

It's better for men to just take it lying down, and adopt the neutered dog mentality because you can't change anything anyway. So why complain about it? THIS is what more and more women actually seem to desire in men. It serves them better. Hardly anybody likes or has an appreciation for a straight, outspoken man--especially gays and non-attractive women.

I can think of very few exceptions to the commercial misandry rule; perhaps the corporations that are targeting to white upper class males--BMW comes to mind--have no financial interest in making the men look stupid--but I'm sure if I tried hard enough I could find one of their commercials that placates to women and makes the men look like buffoons.

I was watching TV last night and a Geico commercial aired, portraying a bride and groom at the alter, when suddenly the bride leaves the groom at the alter and pursues a new car instead.

I was watching this with my wife, and she knows very well how I feel about the commercials that are being aired these days. I looked at her and said, "I wish they would air ONE fvucking commercial this year in which the woman is portrayed as the fvucking idiot. Just ONE."

Of course, men can't call women "idiots" because that would be misogynistic. OK for a woman to say that about men, though.

In some countries they would shoot the person who would even THINK about making such commercials.

Good old America....land of the fat and the greed.

Anything for a dollar.

Send the men off to war to die and repay them by portraying them as idiots in commercials.

But you're a man so you should just ACCEPT IT.

You would not believe what I went through to register so that I could respond. I came upon your post on this website while doing a search related to misandry. I was surprised to see the word in use outside of a sociological study or some such, because it is not well known. (Has it been used on television of late? I do not have television reception). In any event, and with my age and experience, what you see in these commercials is not misandry. It is but a sadistic perversion for profit. No one watching these hideous portrayals, but those profiting from them, could view them otherwise.

When I used to have television reception, I would be nauseated by them, and I am - there is no name for what I am - other than "individual" - but I suppose I would be labeled a feminist. The commercials pit men against women, with relationships being difficult enough. There is not one atom in these things that is "pc."

The reason I was searching for references to misandry, was that I am frustrated by the fact that this is the 21st century, not the '40s or '50s, and out culture continues with incessant gender role stereotyping. You know the one - can't give a truck to a girl. Which is absolutely sophomoric and idiotic. Your own wife would confirm, I think, that women are not "empowered" as those who present such words state they are. Men have not lost their power, either. But, for example, even if a woman solely starts, owns, and operates a business, once a man is in any way linked to her, the credit for the business goes to the man. Truly. I don't make things up. It is serious that there is such rabid enculturation.

From birth, girls in our culture are still getting the message that they must have a man. Boys must produce offspring. This doesn't work for any of us. The idea behind 'real' feminism, is simply - leave people alone to be who they are and to be all they can be without having this kind of crap foisted upon them. At least that's my view.

I guess I'm asking you to consider rejecting what you see on tv, and elsewhere, as complete lies...to see, if you will, pink is great for boys and men - (men look great in pink), and girls and women can have short hair if they wish, not have babies, and just be themselves. There is no way that men and women will not do better individually, and together, than if this stereotypical, but very basic and damaging garbage, is put it to rest for good. Don't buy products that support it. Don't feel attacked by the lies and the enculturated crap, tell it to buzz off. Everyone is suffering because of it.

So. Thanks for writing what you did. And may you and your wife have happy, free days. I probably won't return to the site to see if you have responded, so please do take my comment in the good spirit with which it is presented. It is the hardest thing to stand tall and often alone for what is right.
