    I don’t think it counts as sexism if the article explicitly mentions that the ads contained images of men as well. If anything, this would be an example of ageism and discrimination against the beauty-challenged. 😉

      Hey Michelle,

      I reread the article after seeing your comment, and they’ve updated it with information about the ads containing images of men as well – thanks for pointing this out! I definitely agree that ageism and beauty-privilege come into play here. Thank you for reading and commenting 🙂
