I was wondering if the Old Spice deodorant advertisements – which I find absolutely hilarious, could be construed as being sexist. And if, so, what the implications of sexist advertising is.

That’s when I read this brilliant piece:

Which is super weird. I don’t think we recognize as often how implicit sexism takes place, and whether these kind of things actually end up creating gendered notions within people’s minds.

Further, I find it tougher to figure out whether humour that is sexist shouldn’t be enjoyed.

Quite a bit to think about. But for now, sleep.
