  1. Men fought all the wars in that time--and still do, mostly. Just a fact.

    1. Well, maybe not the war for equality.

    3. Women may have been relegated to "non-combat" roles during war but, that does not mean they were not there participating, though people seem to like to forget they did. (Ironic given that we're discussing casual sexism.) And, being in a "non-combat" role doesn't protect you from the enemy shooting at you!

  2. Casual sexism of marketing people in the 50s.
    Look at advertising today and see how much of it reflects 'real life'... vs. some ad exec's ideal of what people oughtta be doing.

    1. Her arms are as bare as Michelle Obama’s too! What is this world coming to?

    2. Her choice of blouse is protected by the Second Amendment.

  4. An early Playboy magazine ad for liquor showed men and women at a casual party. After studying it I realized only men were holding glasses of whiskey; the women were standing around admiring the men, I guess.

  6. I'm wondering what dad has on his left sleeve, near the elbow?

    BTW, it could be that dad and son made dinner, and mom and daughter have cleanup duty. Mom and daughter played each other while dinner was being prepared, and the winner of that match will play the winner of the father/son game in a family champion final match. And the family champion will not have to do chores for the next week.

    Or, maybe not...
