This is another example of one
of those advertisements you likely would not see in a modern electronics magazine.
There is nothing fundamentally problematic about its content or message, but
correct standards would condemn any depiction of a woman expressing such
appreciation for a man's efforts. It might, after all, convey the idea that all
television antenna servicemen should expect such treatment from all women. It
implies that only men can be TV antenna servicemen / servicepersons. For that
matter, maybe Walsco Electronics' advertising team meant to badger women into
heaping such affection upon TV servicemen if they expect good service. If that sounds
nutty, well, what can I say. It's the world we live in as evidenced by news items
of late. Keep firmly in mind that what is accepted as a social norm today might
be considered to be a crime in a few decades, so exercise caution in all you do
in the presence of witnesses be it written, videoed, spoken, or acted out. That
goes for actual or implied actions, intentional or unintentional. In your old age,
you just might find yourself being judged according to future expectations for things
you did when worldwide standards were different. You have been admonished.
