Video: Commercials Used To Be Even More Sexist Than They Are Now

Are you foolish enough let your wife drive? Better get some extra sturdy tires on that car, buddy.

I mean, it’s cool that you’re so modern and all, but you’ll definitely need some protection from all the potholes that poor frightened creature is inevitably going to drive over. And if she’s menstruating? Ho boy, forget about it. Everyone knows menstruation takes up a good 90% of a woman’s brain. To the bleeding hut with her!

Real talk: this was a real ad that ran on real television in the seventies, and most people were cool with it. Don’t say feminism never gave you anything.

    “Don’t say feminism never gave you anything.”

    Sure, and if some feminists were motivated by their Christianity, I should be grateful to Christianity forever.
