Have you ever found yourself being particularly disturbed by the infinite number of advertisements presented in a 30 minute show The media nowadays is overwhelmed by countless different ads that imply distinct messages of how our culture is changing and how our society views gender roles today Whenever I flip the channels while watching TV I find myself bombarded from every angle with tempting images and catchy phrases that give me satisfaction without even realizing it However there are always those kinds of advertisements such as the Clorox ad or the Mr Clean one which as a female bother me Whether their toxic content is inadvertent or outright the messages contained in these advertisements are heinous Take for example the Mr Clean advertisement This ad portrays two women being very concerned with their house and how it is not perfectly clean I demand to know why is it the woman in the family that is possessed with anything cleaning related Is the woman the only person who should know about Mr Clean products and how they help her reach her satisfaction in her duty Shouldnt a man also be worried and concerned about the well-maintenance of his house Or is he just too busy to be bothered with such womens work That is the reason I am constantly disturbed by this ad for it is part of capitalist ideology of a patriarchal agenda to socially construct certain roles for different groups It expresses the unrealistic common view of men and women and their function in society Women are often depicted as being the ones responsible for the well maintenance of the house while men are the ones who guide and direct women as they men watch them perform their duty As years are passing by there are a few changes occurring such as men becoming a little more preoccupied with the house activities however this ad shows that we still live in a patriarchal society
