According to this article the European Parliament passed a non-binding report last week that seeks to curb gender stereotyping in advertisements.

The concern, according to the committee report, is that stereotypes in advertising can “straitjacket women, men, girls and boys by restricting individuals to predetermined and artificial roles that are often degrading, humiliating and dumbed-down for both sexes.”

Do you think advertisers have gone too far in the US with gender stereotypes for men and women?
