This ad leads the viewer from the words MEET ALEX etc straight to the boy and then over and down to the girl. I didn’t even notice there was a set of parenthesis with words in them in the ad until I looked the fourth time. </p> <p>This is a fallacious confirmation bias, as anyone looking at it will assume Alex is the focal point (i.e. The Boy) and then if they’re perceptive they’ll notice the words at the bottom. Aha! Those damn gender stereotypes gotcha again! Except no, because the ad literally forces you to read it as “Alex is the boy” by the visual language and lines of sight. </p> <p>A better ad would have been structured from top to bottom instead of left to right, and wouldn’t have pushed the girl, the real subject of the ad (who, by the way, has been VISUALLY PUSHED OUT OF HER RIGHTFUL SPACE ON THE AD BY HER BROTHER) off to the corner as far away from her identifiers as possible. </p> <p>Here, I’ll make you a better ad.</p> <figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="625" data-orig-width="500" data-orig-src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/92f34a6085124d4eb55f8c7829e3df87/tumblr_inline_ndd2eba6jq1r3ylr6.png"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/92f34a6085124d4eb55f8c7829e3df87/tumblr_inline_p95fekSKrG1rw09tq_540.png" alt="image" data-orig-height="625" data-orig-width="500" data-orig-src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/92f34a6085124d4eb55f8c7829e3df87/tumblr_inline_ndd2eba6jq1r3ylr6.png"/></figure><p>Bam. Shitty stock photo but you get the point. If anyone sees<i> this</i> and assumes Alex is the boy, they don’t have the the ad layout to use as an excuse for their internalized gender shittery. Likewise, the ad isn’t actively trying to make you read it a certain way and THEN making you feel guilty for interpreting it the way they designed it to be. </p> </blockquote> <p>Always reblog</p></blockquote>

I do think that <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confirmation_bias">Confirmation Bias</a> and news media using misleading numbers are 2 of the biggest problems that people face today. I mean that. Example; If you are reading this, the likelihood of you <em>being</em> shot by another person for basically any reason over your entire life is virtually nil. If you are a soldier or in a gang maybe it increases bit. The thing is, those folks having a higher rate has no real effect on the likelihood of a housewife in Kansas potentially getting shot yet they do effect those averages. </p> <p>Funny enough, last night I was talking with 2 friends about a study I had to do in college on the rate of Lupus in women with breast implants in the late 80s. There were 2 cases (in the entire US) with reasonable evidence to assume that ruptured breast implants could have been one of multiple factors which resulted in those 2 women to having immune system issues. The thing to notice there are “could have been one of multiple factors” by the way. Also, that these were <em>ruptured</em> silicon implants which were (I think) 10+ year old implants. Anyways, the reason I had to study the case was because within months of this ‘speculation” there was a massive spike in women who had breast implants in hospitals with Lupus-like symptoms. The reason? Oprah did a TV special on the dangers of breast implants. Not ruptured 10 year old implants under specific circumstances mind you. Just implants. She showcased one of these women.</p> <p>To date, there has never been conclusive evidence to support that breast implants have ever been a major contributing factor as a cause of Lupus. A woman could develop Lupus (much more common in women) and have implants. And implants can at times cause complications and especially in the past, have been dangerous. But, those things were glossed over in favor of creating a public issue. Within months, Oprah had caused a mini epidemic of psychosomatic Lupus in women with implants. It went from 2 cases to over 10,000 mind you, in months. </p> </blockquote>
