Meat is oh-so-manly!

Vintage sexism via Sociological Images:


This is a Campbell’s Soup ad from the 1940s.  Because meat is so manly!  And you know, men who work so damn hard everyday to put food on the table need “Beef! Beef! Beef!” to keep them strong and healthy so they can keep raking in the big bucks.  And of course women are supposed to fulfill their housewively duties and cook for their husbands.  Cook Campbell’s Beef Soup, that is.

Yes, but that doesn’t mean that sexist advertising and sexist stereotypes are outdated. They are still very much present.
