Who buys tractors? Farmers
What are most farmers? Men
What do most most like? Women



Or should we just not have women advertise anything

Do people on twitter crying about this not realise they are shooting their cause in thr foot? The whole idea of feminism is so women have a choice, unless it’s a choice I disagree with it seems.

Perfect free advertising from this company, plus it’s not like a boycott (which will no doubt be Called) would have any impact..

lol.

Problem with social media is, everyone has something to complain about. Some things are not worth complaining about. Wasn't there that whole thing about how fireworks that we have for typically less than 5 days a year should be banned bcos they cause distress to pets. xD If that animal is your pet, you can let it inside for 5 nights of the year no?

I would be more likely to buy a tractor if it's surrounded by hot women.

I don't agree with banning them but it is a legit argument tbf, fireworks affect wildlife and some pets such as horses can't really be brought inside. Chinese lanterns are the worst though in terms of environmental damage

Feminists are hypocrites and liars.

Feminist: We support women's choice!!!
Also Feminist: YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED TO CHOOSE TO BE A GRID/GIRL BE USED FOR ADVERTISING!!!

I'm increasing starting to think that feminists hate women just as much as they hate men.

Wow. Here we have TSR claiming that sexism against women doesn't exist, in the same thread as being sexist against women.

Verdict:

The advertisement hurts literally no one. It's OK to have attractive women and a little sex appeal in an ad. The insecure twitter feminists have 'synchronised' again, it seems.

Am I offended each time I see some ripped, shirtless dude with a chiselled jaw used in an ad for Diet Coke or whatever? Do we ever see any men whining about sexy dudes in ads? No.

Verdict:
How is saying it's up to the women if they want to be in advertising or not "being sexist"?

That's the problem with your type, you change definitions and goalposts constantly.

You used to say not allowing women a choice was sexist.

Now you're literally saying letting women choose is sexist.

Know what I think is sexist? Far-left middle class white authoritarians telling women they're not allowed to be pretty or take up a job in advertising!

Also his post was literally a joke, lighten up you fuddy duddy. What's it like back there in the 17th century you gosh darn miserable puritan?

women are perfectly capable of using tractors as well as advertising them
