Men and Madison Avenue
At some point in the not-too-distant past, advertisers realized that by focusing on creating images for the "ideal" woman and tailoring products to build on that image, they were only targetting nearly half the population. Now men are as much the target of Madison Ave - and coincidently, once "women's issues" such as eating disorders have increased dramatically for men.
The post below highlights a book (VoiceMale: What Husbands Really Think About Their Marriages, Their Wives, Sex, Housework, and Commitment by Neil Chethik) that tries to undo the Madison Ave version of men: boys who don't grow up.
