Sexism Used As A Tactic Essay

866 words - 4 pages

Every man fantasizes about beautiful women serving them hand and foot. We live in a society where women are supposed to be the person to cook, clean, take care of the kids, and work. Women have been made into a sex symbol for the public audience in plenty of ads and commercials to grasp the typical male audience. Ads have led men to purchase products to achieve the goal of getting the sex symbol that they fantasize about. Even though society has made it okay for woman to be a sex symbol, it isn’t.

Women are supposed to cook dinner for the household, but the vulgar clothing to attract the man to the woman is the problem. It gives off an impression of a woman being a piece of meat.
The second component of the ad is the question that is being asked. “Can she make you lose control?” In “The Language of Advertising” by Charles A. O’Neill, he says, “Fortunately, advertisers use many other techniques… the strategy may include strong creative execution or a plain, straightforward presentation of product features and customers benefits” (O’Neill 250). It is challenging you to try to antiperspirant and she if you can keep your composure around a beautiful young woman.
