Apparently La-Z-Boy still sees girls as fragile, quiet little flowers.
One of their TV ads I saw tonight pushed stain resistant fabric…and outdated ideas.
The ad features some rambunctious boys jumping around a living room and on couches. When they cause a drink to spill on a couch, a pregnant mom says, “Please be a girl.”
Come on, La-Z-Boy.
Enough reinforcement of stereotypes that boys are rough, tough and aggressive, while girls are demure, sweet, reserved and more seen than heard.
Time to join the modern world, La-Z-Boy.
