Carpet Wrong


We went to buy a new carpet today for my being-refurbished home office.

Different carpet manufacturers have different pictures advertising their wares. Some of these pictures are just of carpets, but others are of an individual lounging about on the carpet. In every case of a lounging individual, the individual was female.

This is another instance where there seems to be a collectively sexist attitude but it's not clear which sex is being discriminated against.

PS: If a car park has a sign saying CARS PARKED AT OWNERS RISK in it, does that mean the owner of the car or the owner of the car park?
