Oh Those Lovely Double Standards.
I've been seeing this Irish Spring ad a lot lately. It strikes me as a good example of the double standards that continue to exist in society. You would never see an ad like this where two random men are watching a woman bathe without her knowing it. It would be considered weird and creepy. But it's apparently okay for women to do it. The implication is not only are women not dangerous to men, but that a man wouldn't be upset about being seen by female voyeurs. After all a man is supposed to always want sexual attention from women, so of course it's all right for then to do something like this and no real man would be upset by it.
