Vintage Ads Which Were Highly Offensive Towards Women

Full gender equality might still not be where it needs to be, but we've certainly come a long way over the past half a century. Travel back just 50 or-so-years-ago, and the world was not an easy place to be a woman. Where assisting men to become great achievers was their highest accolade, women didn't have much hope for being taken seriously. With companies insulting and belittling women as marketing strategies to sell their products, it was indeed a man's world.

These vintage ads give us an idea of just how little empowerment, rights, or power women had back in the day. Check out the horrors below.

Father Son Pictures Sparks Debate About Toxic Masculinity

In recent years, the conversation surrounding toxic masculinity has sparked some critical debate. Society holds some pretty archaic views regarding the stigmas still attached to men who express their emotions or do things perceived as 'soft' or 'feminine.' Although awareness is increasing, there is still a lot more progress to be made. One father, Eric Owens, experienced this first-hand when he posted a photo collage on Facebook of him and his son lying in his arms over the years, including one when his son was a teenager. His post, which he captioned "18 years later and he still under my arm," went viral, with thousands of people commenting on it. Although many of the comments were positive, a good handful of them (mostly from men) was negative, stating how strange they thought it was for a father to show affection to a grown son— something only a mother should do. Someone posted it all on Tumblr, adding a rant about how this was a classic example of the toxic masculinity pervasive in society and people are agreeing. What do you think about it all?

Man Hilariously Photoshops Himself Into Boring Stock Photos

Everyone knows that stock photos are meant to represent everyday scenarios' mundane Reality. But somehow, they always miss the mark and appear stiff, inauthentic, and don't portray real life how you and I live it. Art director, Matthew, grew sick and tired of seeing these unrealistic scenarios all over the internet and decided to do something about it. According to his blog, he injects "Reality into an unreal world by injecting myself... I am the Stock Photobomber! Armed with Photoshop 6.0 and my own raw emotion, I'm going to thrust stock photography into the real world the only way I know how... I'm going to photobomb the crap out of it." Here is a hilarious selection of his talent, more of which can be found on his Facebook page.

Man Refuses To Give Pregnant Woman Seat On Bus, After Long Work Shift

You do some things in life, not because you have to, but because it's the right thing to do. Picking up litter, helping elderly people to cross the road, and giving up your seat on public transport for pregnant women. Most people don't question these unspoken rules of human decency, but you'll find someone who thinks they are exempt from them every now and again. Like this guy who posted on the popular Reddit thread Am I The A-hole, who asked if he was in the wrong for not giving up his seat on the bus for a pregnant lady, even though he "Works 10-hour shifts." In case you can't get an idea of the type of person he is, from that along, he goes on to say, "We live in a state where birth control and abortions are free, so I don't know why this should be my problem. It's not my fault she decided to have a baby when she can't afford a car."

Ummmm. So essentially, and correct me if I'm wrong, he's saying that if you want to feel comfortable on the bus, you should just get an abortion. Ok cool. He sounds like a genuinely upstanding citizen. Not.

Anyway, as you can imagine, Redditers pitched in left, right, and center, telling him just how much of an ahold he is and why he is a sh*tty human being. As always, there were a few people who were on his side (we've included one such response below), but most people were of the consensus that he is a d-bag. Read through his story and the reactions from Redditers and decide if you think he is, indeed, the ahole.

Man With 700lbs. Of Beef Can't Get A Date: Funny Twitter Thread

Everyone is looking for different things in a life partner, and everyone knows what they bring to the table. But sometimes, it's better to keep your assets to yourself instead of assuming that you know what your potential suitors want, especially if it makes you sound like a bit of a d-bag. One guy learned this the hard way when he took to Twitter to vent his frustrations about being single, despite all his assets. His Tweet said, "My housing is paid for. I make a good salary. I get health insurance, 401k, 700 lbs of beef a year, and I live on a couple hundred acres. I'm a puncher by trade with a bachelor's degree. And I swear you women would rather have a loser than a provider. It's sad"

Twitter roasted him mercilessly, men and women alike and the responses are hilarious. We've compiled some of the funniest ones for you below to scroll through and laugh at.

Dumbest Things Men Did To "Prove" Their "Manhood"

For too long, we have taught little boys growing up that expressing emotion is for girls and that real men are "hard." We excuse outbursts of violence and anger under the guise that "boys will be boys," creating a culture of toxic masculinity. The result is a new generation of men that feels the need to prove their "manhood" to feel accepted by society. Of course, this attitude is detrimental to their own mental (and often physical) health and those around them. I'm sure you've seen plenty of real-life examples of this, but a Reddit thread asking for the dumbest things people have seen a man do to "prove" their "manhood" has revealed just how prevalent toxic masculinity is. Read on and dispair!

Man Tweets How He Saved Woman From Strangers

As we know all too well, the world can be a dangerous place, particularly for a woman walking alone at night in metropolitan areas. Although staying vigilant is key in trying to avoid getting into dangerous situations, sometimes you may need to depend on the help of a kind stranger to keep you safe in certain circumstances. This is exactly the position one woman in NYC found herself in February, who when walking home alone, realized she was being followed by three men. Understanding the potential danger she was in, she approached a stranger and asked him to pretend he knew her, and accompany her home  The stranger tweeted the whole encounter (below) which went viral and inspired many people to thank him, on behalf of women everywhere for helping this woman while she was in a vulnerable state. It doesn't take a lot to show some kindness and help someone in need, like this compassionate stranger shows.

Female Redditors Ponder The Worst Part Of Being A Man

Although we can be sympathetic towards the struggles of others, no one can ever really know what it's like to be someone you're not.

A Reddit thread asking the women of Reddit what they thought the worst thing about being a man would be, revealed something very interesting.
