Were Ads Really This Offensive In Vintage Times?

Ah, the Vintage Times. The early 20th century seemed so unusual, didn’t it? Pretty hairstyles, classy dressing, cool cars, even the art. But, that’s not all, that’s barely anything – Vintage Times weren’t that great at all. In fact, people at that time were so racist and sexist; you wouldn’t believe it!

For our generation, things like that are completely unacceptable. We have worked so hard to rid the world of racism and promote gender equality; we wouldn’t tolerate anything like that these days. Especially the kids in our super sensitive age group.

Think we’re bluffing? See for yourself. The advertising field can reveal a lot about a particular time in the past. So, we have gathered here some sexist, offensive, and racist ads from the Vintage Times to prove that to you. If ads like that were made today, there would probably be boycotts of these products everywhere. Have a look at these, and tell us how you feel about them.
