Boys Vs. Girls – The Science of Gender Based Target Marketing. (Culture)

UPDATE:: Welcome Farkers!! Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to stick around. Check out some of my other popular posts listed on the right side.

It’s always been fascinating to me how huge a role advertising and marketing plays in conditioning us as a society. It’s a sad reality that most people are basically convinced that they are not leading fulfilled lives without owning a flatscreen tv or an iphone. But this process of having people tell you what you need and why begins at a much earlier age. Achilleseffect did a study using Wordcloud that highlights the language used to sell products geared for either girls or boys, exposing our obsession with social conditioning. The results reveal so much of how gender stereotypes have changed so little over the years. Men it seems are still solitary hunter-gatherers, while women nurture and raise families, at least according to the science of marketing.
