These Are The Most Shockingly Sexist Ads You've Ever Seen.

Posted by Michael Avery in History On 18th July 2017

The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has been cracking down on ads that they say are stereotypical or sexist. With that being said, it's pretty safe to assume that none of these ads from the past would have made the cut.

#1 The Man Is In Charge.

This coffee ad uses domestic violence to push their product.

Based on new strict ad guidelines in the UK any ad that is unhelpful or damaging will be removed right away. The crack down will also apply to images that sexualize topics, push stereotypes or push for unhealthy weight gain or loss. These new rules are being applauded by women all over. With that being said, it's long over due. If the image above is any indication, this has been a problem for a very long time. Just take a look at the rest of these blood boiling shockingly sexist ads.


#2 Who Wears The Pants?

In this shocking ad, a hubby believes the best place for his wife is under his foot.

This pants advertisement claims that "After one look at his Mr. Leggs slacks, she was ready to have him walk all over her."

#3 Absolute Murder

This ad not only implies that women don't understand technology, it also questions the legality of killing women.


#4 It Goes Down Smooth

This picture was sent out as a tweet with that caption but it didn't go down too well.

Belvedere invited a ton of controversy In 2012 after promoting this picture. Belvedere always goes down smoothly indeed.
