Happy face insults reader

Publication YearIssue Date 

Editor, the Gauntlet,

Mr. Bailey is right to refer to the sexist advertising in this paper as disgusting. What I find more disgusting, and frankly insulting, is that the ad has run again with a happy face on the button.

The University of Calgary community can choose to not support sexist advertising in its paper. A few advertising dollars do not justify the support of material that condones and furthers the degradation of women in our society.

The Gauntlet can lead by example and cut all sexist ads, or it can continue to follow Maxim magazine and support misogyny. This choice is ours to make.
