Vintage ads...they used to get away with this sh*t ?

Ads that would never be allowed today.

I'm appalled at how these ads were once legal and praised. I can let slide the whole pro-smoking ads, because smoking was not yet known as a health hazard but the man is better than women thing really bothers me, I'm so glad I wasn't born in that generation. We've definitely come a long way.

Estoy anonadada de como estas publicidades fueron una vez legales y apoyadas por las personas. Puedo dejar pasar los de "Pro-fumadores", porque fumar no era conocido como perjujdicial a la salud en ese entonces, pero esos de que los hombres son mejores que las mujeres me causa mucha molestia. Estoy agradecida de no haber nacido en esa generación. Definitivamente hemos progresado mucho.

  1. Back then, it was a different mentality in the US. Today you cannot do it and that is the beauty of it. Men have evolved.

  2. I can't believe those are real ads!! There is no way! The babies in cellophane is hilarious! Really?! Great post!

  3. Well, I love looking at them and seeing what the times were like back then. "blow in her face and she'll follow you anywhere"? omg, haha!
