Most of the time when talking about gender stereotypes we thik of women as the usual offended group, however it goes both ways. In this picture, it clearly takes an underlying shot at men saying that only manly men can be nurses. I personally know male nurses and they would be offended by this advertisement because anybody can be a nurse, period. The question here is, why do nurses have to be manly?

I think this is similar to the Dr Pepper ad in my last post as it seems like its challenging men to become nurses. While society knows that the majority of nurses are women, it may seem like a non manly occupation for men. It was even made fun of in the movie Meet the Parents. I actually like this tactic of challenging marketing as I think it would attract more men because it calls them out to step up to the plate.
