I do not agree with everything your saying. Im also not saying this because Im a guy.
Most commercials are pushed towards women that contain any kind of products. There isn't very many men product commercials, and most of commercials pointed at men have to do with food or beer, and if not food or beer they have to put something appealing to the product to get attention like good looking women and other products for men are also pointed towards the women to see. Now for women there is lots and lots of hair care commercials, clothing, makeup, kids things, store product sales commercials, etc etc, There all pointed at women do to the fact that women do more shopping, and buying the items there children need and so on. Not to say us Men dont do things for are kids or like buying things for ourselves. Most men give money to there other half to get what is needed for the family or there half, and sometimes the female will even buy things for there man that they need. But I do agree that they will put half naked women on TV just to get men's attention. That's what men like. But a thing about hair care showing what it dose to the hair by itself men wont even pay that much attention to it rather than if the women was hot or not. Now to push male products, like Axe body spray. They have beautiful women jumping all over the man when he cleans himself with the body wash or puts on there deodorant. Now men know that wont happen but it gets them to watch the commercial. Now if there was a half naked men rubbing on one chick after she put on some Brittany spears perfume and washed there body with Aveeno body wash, then it would be sick and appalling to women. But for years there was no such thing as men's body wash. They had soap or had to use there wives / girlfriends body wash. Still yet there is not much for men out there. A very little selection. Also in today's America and most the world women have as much right as men and can do anything a man can do. Do a mans job, put on men's clothing, and much much more. Now if a man dose a women's job or wants to ware a skirt ( a manly type skirt "they are out there") he is put on the gay list. Women also have a tendency to get away with more because there cute. I know this by experience. Now Women who indulge themselves into sexual type behavior in public, on TV, in strip clubs, or walk around half naked do this because they want to and are asking for trouble from the men there are trying to please. So in my eyes women have it better in today's society. Also if a man has a short, small, skinny build they are looked down on as not being a good guy for a women because he could not protect his women. Men have to hold in emotion, and play big and tough and its not an easy role to play all the time. Yes women are expected to be thin and beautiful so in some since Women and Men are equal in a since on the appearance they have to put on. So in reality. This is what it is. Reality and nothing is going to change it.
