Contextual Ads – Read this and weep, ladies

Aviatrix and role model Amelia Earhart (1898-1937)  equalled Eleanor Roosevelt in inspiring 20th C. American women to seize and achieve life for themselves.

Keyword “empowerment.” [picapp src=”4/e/8/b/Ameila_Earhart_With_8545.jpg?adImageId=6943788&imageId=3044181″ width=”234″ height=”187″ /]

So, as the new celebrity movie biography is released, it’s no surprise that articles exploring the mystery of the aviatrix’s death are on the rise. A recent discover.com post includes precise, sad conclusions about a safe landing to a remote island where Amelia and flight partner apparently died; suffering the worst fears of tropical island tragedies. One can only imagine the heat and, ultimately, starvation.

From an ordinary female point of view, what a travesty to be exposed to the inept Google ad that follows. It’s ludicrous to be exposed to an ad that sells women’s worst fears and prejudices about body image. We think we’ve come so far — when will advertisers catch up and hucksters go their own way.
