Hey Ladies!

AAAAH- so offended- soo soo Ahhhhhh! Okay now THat I have composed myself where do I begin. Girls Only! signage and pink and purple color scheme- Way to reinforce gender coding. CLEANING TROLLY - okay now that wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't market expressly for girls, thus reinforcing the stereotype that cleaning is for girls. The vaguely ethnic dark haired little girl (Little Latina Cleaning lady? REALLY?)

After writing about Barbra Streisand's new Barbie doll I found this AMAZING and vaguely offensive vintage Barbie TV advert from 1973. "Give him a Mustache and pretend he's the bad guy" or John Holmes, whichever.
