Is it only the fact that they're scantily clad?

Do women also find the fact that only women actors are used in cleaning commercials "fucking gross"?

I can't speak for women, but I do. I'm tired of men being portrayed in those commercials as buffoons who can't possibly manage household tasks, as well.


But whom else but white men can you portray as buffoons without getting lynched by, well, everyone ?

It's not gross in the same way, but yeah, that is a great example of sexism!


If anything I'd say it's grosser.


I understand that it sucks, but it's targeted marketing. Same reason the use kids in toy commercials and sports in beer commercials.


Isn't that just because 9 times out of 10 those products are bought by women?
