What happens if you reverse sex roles in advertising?

bmacs27 says...

What you mean to say is that the nerdy guy is appreciably overweight, and the nerdy girl is not. And you are correct, even this forward thinking video could not bring itself to put an overweight woman on camera.

1. The nerdy guy in the second ad isn't hot by any definition (sorry dude) but the nerdy girl is just an attractive woman wearing glasses. Is it really so hard to find an ugly woman?

That actually wasn't particularly weird. If those had just been ads, and not put I this context, I wouldn't have thought anything of it. You probably would have sold fewer chips though.

Beautiful rendition of "Circle of Life" - she thought!

@lantern53 Honestly, you are coming across as very reasonable right now, and clearly you come from a position of direct experience. I'd like to know a bit more about your opinion.

What do you think the police could do to strengthen their public image? Clearly, the institution is not as respected as it should be (that is, it is widely maligned), and I agree, good cops too often get ignored. Do you suppose their poor public image has more to do with a few bad individuals, or is there a more systemic problem possibly with the organization of local departments? I suppose it could also have to do with the laws they are asked to enforce, e.g. marijuana prohibition is notoriously unpopular potentially breeding distrust of law enforcement more generally.

As a follow up, how do you feel concerns about a crooked PD should be handled? Do you trust IA to handle these sorts of allegations for the most part, or are concerns about the "blue wall" justified? Can you think of a better mechanism for enforcing good behavior among officers? Should we just tolerate violent criminal activity in law enforcement because it is rare, and we should "take the bad with the good?"

While Nataly is obviously beautiful and talented, I can't help but feel like she's lost a bit more her innocence than Jack. That was always where I thought they got their charm. Jack still seems to really be losing himself in the music, and just plain having fun. Nataly seems to have lost some of that.
