30+ Stupid Gendered Marketing Tactics That Will Make Your Eyes Roll

An excellent marketing plan is one that makes a good impression on the viewers, giving them an unforgettable memory of the advertising. Another way to make them remember the marketing idea is to make pointless comments, especially about gender. However, this will leave a negative customer experience, and it can affect the brand's image.
The following post will give you a good look at how many stupid gendered marketing tactics exist in our everyday lives. And to be honest, they're not just examples of bad marketing but also horrible narratives toward young children. Just imagine these stupid gendered marketing tactics will make young boys think they can't cry or express their emotions, and young girls think they can use the color blue or play with the robot. It's just horrible and embarrassing. So let's hope those big corporations will do better in the future so we can have a better environment for our kids to grow up in.
But for now, let ready to raise an eyebrow (or two) as we present times when people find the absolute worst gendered marketing tactics; enjoy!
