Just a silly thing, maybe…but something I couldn’t help but notice something on the front page of MSN:
Their For Her section:
- Because we need to know what our guys eating habits means in relation to us.
- Because what we look like is super important.
- Because that’s what all moms really care about.
- Because what we look like is so important we need to do something about it ALL THE TIME.
- Because we need a man.
Their For Him section:
- Because men are the only ones that this pertains to.
- Because only men drive cars or care about them.
- Because only men are smart enough to understand this.
- Because cars are all men think about.
- Because only men listen/care about Van Halen’s guitar.
- Because men want to only meet CUTE single women.
Ok, maybe I am being nitpicky…but this is the kind of subliminal message that we (men and women) are getting daily to reinforce stereotypes. Think about it for a minute.
