Join us for a Feminist Friday Discussion this week at The Lobster Dance

Leah of The Lobster Dance has graciously agreed to host the Feminist Friday discussion this week.

The topic: Gendered Marketing aimed at adults.

I couldn’t be more thrilled that Leah’s offered to host. If you want to know why I’m saying that, check out this piece she wrote at I’ll Make It Myself last month about pointlessly gendered food blogging.

You’re welcome to join us (and to chime in if you’re feeling chatty on Friday).

Leah’s post will be the eighteenth of these discussion threads we’ve posted since we started them in March, and The Lobster Dance will be the seventh blog that’s hosted. I can’t tell you how happy that makes me.

All previous installments are archived here.

    Hi, readers! If you haven’t been following Feminist Friday on Sourcerer and Part-time Monster, check it out this Friday right here on The Lobster Dance. We’re going to discuss gendered marketed toward adults, especially product segregation by gender. We’d love to have you, my regular readers, join in, too!

      Gendered marketing is a thing. It’s the idea that you sell products to people of different sexes in different ways (see the pink boxing gloves). Which isn’t always a problem, but can be, based on the marketing techniques employed and the attitudes of the people who author the advertisements.
