    I don't think there's anything wrong with appealing to femininity OR masculinity. So some men wants to act 'manly' and some women want to act 'womanly'. Why not? Treating members either gender in different ways is not the same as treating them unfairly. Ad producers, marketers and meat-makers want to appeal specifically to masculinity when advertising meat, body deodorant, etc. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that.
