I picked up a booklet of postcards that are so blatantly, horrifyingly sexist and wrong…
That they’re kind of funny.
As advertisements from 1900-1950, they include lines like, “You mean a woman can open it…?”, and “Is it always illegal to kill a woman?”. Oh, and, “Blow in her face and she’ll follow you anywhere!”
(A cigarette ad, people. Get your minds out of the gutter!)
This one stood out as particularly offensive. So I had to share.
The caption reads:
Undies to be sold in.
Don’t bargain on it.
The will of Allah could catch you in your undies any time.
Blushmaking? Not in Triumph fashion undies.
Get some quick.
They’re a great buy.
Triumph Co-ordinating bras, bra-slips, briefs, pantie-girdles, mini-slips, waist-slips, mini-coats and nighties in the pretties prints, plains and laces.
Buy them in sets or one at a time. Prices from only 9/11. Sizes 32-38.
Undies to be seen in.
Just so Allah doesn’t catch me in my undies, tonight I’m going commando!
