The Sexologist: Super-sexist Super Bowl ads
I’m all for sexy depictions on television (I am a sexologist…) but I’m wondering why advertisers can’t use sex without being sexist, homophobic, or otherwise perpetuate harmful myths about sexuality. I use them to teach my students about sex in the media, and how so many people take what they see on television at face value and never dig a little deeper to examine what it is they’re actually watching and buying into. Let’s examine some of lasts night’s ads now.
A boy is bullied in the Hyundai commercial and has his football stolen until he “comes back with a team”. His mom drives him around picking up tough friends to construct a football team. Of course, they’re all boys. Why can’t a girl play on the football team?
trans-phobic and is supposed to be “funny” because it plays on the stereotype that men don’t wear dresses. If they do they should expect to be mocked.
Why couldn’t the dad just tell kids the truth when he asked? Why concoct this huge bull# story? It’s parents like these that make my job difficult. Stop lying to your kids people, or in 15 years they will be on my office trying to overcome the shame of believing babies shoot out of rockets from the planet Babylandia

Its always a problem if you make it out to be one and find reasons for it to be a problem when in reality, it isnt.
