    She will get beaten for taken her eyes off of her work. She can enjoy watching them play AFTER her job is done.

    It isn`t sexism when you are just emerging from the era of which this was the traditional female role, and there wasn`t anything -ism about it.

    Ads are weird things; When I was young- in the 50`s- there were print ads for a brand of dress shirts for men, that often featured a husband keeping his wife in line by judicious application of a `spanking`. Like she`s an errant child. I thought it passing strange as a child, but as an adult- looking back at that time- I cannot imagine imposing my will, and treating someone I supposedly love in such a manner, but apparently it was mainstream enough for pop culture to make the characterization.

    Soooooo by your logic, ignorance equals apathy?

    Gee, it`s part of the prevailing culture of that era. No one held a gun to people`s heads eh?

    FUNNY how we`re told to `respect other cultures` when they comit atrocities or violate human rights.

    But our own culture is not respected at all, by ourselves.

    The reason there used to be a seperate work-pattern for males and females is because that`s the best way to do it SINCE THE STONE AGE! Neandertals didn`t have such distinctions (we think, or at least not as many) and how did that work out for them? Extinction!

    There is NO evidence the "modern way" is any better.
    200,00 years > 50 years, ok?

    Now: why isn`t anyone pointing out the Freudian image of a boy "sinking his father`s battleship" if you know what I mean... and I know you IAB perverts do know!!

    It`s funny and sad. They are WAY too happy washing dishes. The crazy part is that the boy is playing with his father instead of his sister, it seems to imply it`s a game for males. Girls can`t play any kind of game that has the word battle in it, even if the entire strategy is just randomly shooting things and pure luck.

    Sarah, they probably figured the sister wasn`t smart enough to play a strategy game. They could have played something simple like Candy Land together.

    That the actual pre-late sixties version of that box.

    Oh, well, there was a radical cultural shift in the mid-sixties. Traditional ways were about to be challenged and changed. It will continue to happen and most of you born after that will live to see your own notions ridiculed by younger people. Just wait!

    @Steelgrid
    Ignorance or apathy had nothing to do with this. Like, 5kittens said, it was an aspect of American culture at that time. There was nothing offensive about it to anyone. Some family units still naturally work this way today. You just don`t see outright sexism because no member of the family was forced into operating like this. It just naturally happened. Hell, in some families the roles are even switched. Does that make it sexist or, as you called it, `ignorant`? No, that`s just the way that family unit chooses to operate, and, quite frankly, it`s none of your damn business.

    @SarahofBorg I think it`s more implying that females wouldn`t be interested in playing the game. Advertisements are always directed at a target audience. This advertisement was probably directed at the typical male audience.

    @5Cats I was thinking that exact same thing. There are many cultures (which, for the record, I don`t agree with) where things like homosexual marriage are strictly forbidden, yet everyone makes a big deal about `tolerance`, and that`s just the way their culture is, but when Americans voice opposition to gay marriage, (who are doing it purely because that`s the way they were raised and the culture they are used to) they get flamed to hell and back by people slinging such nasty words as `racists`, `bigots`, and `retards`. It`s a double-standard. Don`t get me wrong, I have no problem with gay marriage, but irony much?

    @rosieodennel: it`s not a double standard. We have no business imposing our standards on other cultures, but to improve our own is simple patriotism. remember, we`re a very young country.

    Welcome to IAB @rosieodonnel!
    I swear he`s not a sock-puppet! I`d NEVER choose that name! lolz!

    vv It IS TOO a double standard @jt!
    America may be a melting pot, but it`s not just ONE culture for all 330 million of y`all! Right?

    So why is "which gender washes the dishes" a reason to get all angry? It`s NONE of your business! Unless the Gov`t is FORCING women to do it, it`s her free choice!

    Get your rules OUT of my kitchen!

    Argument from tradition; pointless. Just because it was part of the culture doesn`t make it right.
