10 Of The Most Sexist And Incredibly Stupid Vintage Ads Of All Time

By  | 

I’ve always been happy I was born after the feminist movement because – well, do I even have to explain why? The advertising world is still infuriatingly sexist – but I can’t believe what used to pass as an okay way to sell stuff.

Annoyingly smug-looking man gets fully dressed then hops back into bed to be served. 



I don’t even – what? Why is this dude totally dressed, but in bed? Why is this woman kneeling, eye-level with his scrambled eggs? And what the hell does this have to do with a necktie?

I’ll never get the top off this ketchup, how will I serve my family?



Yes, I’m pretty sure a woman can open it – it’s a fucking ketchup bottle. How will she prepare all your meals if she can’t effectively free the condiments from their containers?

Blow in her face. DO IT.



Blow in her face and she’ll follow you anywhere? Yes, the smell of blueberry tobacco is to women what the Pied Piper’s tunes are to children. No. No it’s not.

If he discovers you’re still taking chances on getting flat, stale coffee… woe be unto you! So… offensive… can’t… even… form… words. Mrrr. Mrrr. Bleck. Blaaaa.

What the…?



Maybe you’re thinking this doesn’t look sexist at all. But what the hell? We live in a culture of oppression AND we have to fix the car? That’s bullshit.

Women look adorable when they do housework.



Gosh honey, you seem to thrive on cooking, cleaning and dusting… How were there not more homicidal wives back then? How?

Mrs. Clause doesn’t want a mother-effing ironing board for Christmas.



You mean to tell me they have a workshop full of elves and she still has to iron? Santa would never give this shitty gift to his own wife.

Brakes? That’s not how you stop a car, silly!



Women are soft and gentle, but they hit things… You can conveniently replace anything she uses to stop the car. Even the brakes.

This is hilarious – do you get it? Because women don’t understand that there is a part of the car that is used to slow it down – so we constantly have to crash the car. Get it? Get it? We’re so silly.

He won’t want to be around you if you have PMS.



We know you’re bleeding like a stuck pig and feel like someone is literally slicing you in two – but the important thing is that you are able to still be pleasant to your boyfriend. Get rid of your PMS or this guy with feathered hair won’t like you.

Put these slacks on and walk all over her.



… our hero didn’t have to fire a shot to floor her. After one look at his Mr. Leggs slacks, she was ready to have him walk all over her.

Annnnnd… I’m done.
