Inappropriate Google Advertising
Posted by hannahcolman on July 16, 2008
My inappropriate-interwebs-advertising-spotting editor Clem has already pointed out some corkers that she came across on Facebook.
Today I happened to be trawling the Dawn Chorus archives (we’re only 3 weeks old so trawling is probably a bit excessive), and came across the Catherine Deveny interview. I clicked the link to one of her controversial opinion pieces (‘Why do some wives still change their names?‘ The Age, September 5th 2007). An excerpt:
Whenever two parents are working and the child is propped up on the sideline waiting for its turn, why is it only the woman who gets bagged, as if the father has no responsibility for the care of his own child? Why, when a woman is working, does she always get asked, “Who’s looking after your children?”, but the father never does? We need to take the focus off the role of mother and put it on to parents as a team.
Imagine my delight when I scrolled down and saw which advertisements Google had strategically placed beneath the article.
Quick and Easy Tips for Mum? I bet Deveny would be thrilled with this. I somehow doubt there’s a ‘Quick and Easy Tips for Dad’ in publication.
10 Rules of Flat Stomach? Patronising and gramatically incorrect.
But the mind truly boggles at the final offering.
Chat To Married Women? WTF?!
