Did you notice the Irony? (23) Machismo

Dear Calgary Sun, I don’t think we need a microscope to spot the machismo on this page.

Nice juxtaposition, really, and all too common, sadly. Whenever I read about traditional gender stereotypes or objectification of women, I just need to flip a few pages to see the problem itself. On TV, it’s worse. Actually, come to think of it, you may even find it on this blog. :-(


About Andreas Moser

Travelling the world and writing about it. I have degrees in law and philosophy, but I'd much rather be a writer, a spy or a hobo.

    Andreas, are you sure that this is not simply an advert for the local “Rocky Horror Show” musical ?? The girl reminds me so much of Magenta, the domina, of whom I had a center-fold poster mounted in my bed-room. I later had to take it down, on my wifes request.

    Erratum: Sorry, I ment Columbia, not Margenta. Too bad that I always confuse the names of ex-girl friends.

    They need to be more open mind and put photos with men too, in Ireland is nice charity caledar with hot farmer;)

    • It’s more equal between the sexes, but I am also against objectification of men. We are human beings with brains and hearts, not packs of meat and muscle.

      I would add that kind of photos could look like vintagehottube. Every country and diferent culture have diferent version of it. Just live.
