"smart"/ "cool" for the men and "pretty" / "classy" for the women : is this a parody?

“If anyone makes you feel less than you are, for the color of you skin, for where you come from, for the gender of the person you love, for the religion you have faith in, stand up, speak up, roar. No silence till we are equal.”

Sexism should be confined to the 20th century.

I was disgusted with the image of the woman and the suggestion that because she was good looking she was easy to have sex with then bin like a piece of litter."Bin your litter, it's a PRETTY quick thing to"

This campaign is valuing women for being pretty and men for being smart. Is this really the message that Essex County Council wishes to convey to its young people?

I'm singing because I don't want to be just a pretty woman and I don't want just a smart man. These adjectives need to be used equally with both genders. Regardless of the research apparently done, there are many stereotypes that people with strong morals, even those in the business of making money or cleaning up a city should stand behind and stopping the limiting of girls to look pretty is one. The men are rarely directly effected in this. Their perception of women and a woman's perception of her capabilities is what is hurt. I challenge these ad makers to think about their female family members and see if they just want to be pretty.

The add is gross and sexist. It speaks volumes about the old fashioned people that created and approved it.
