Think stuff promoted to kids today encourage bad behavior? Think again.

1938ad

If you think we’ve reached a pinnacle of questionable marketing to kids, check out this 1938 novelty catalog.  Almost every ad promotes antisocial behavior of some kind.    By the way, the website I found it on (retrospace.org) is incredibly addictive.   (That’s why I haven’t posted in almost 2 days!)

About luckyotter

This blog is my journal. I just choose to share it with the world instead of keeping everything inside my head. I'm a recovering Borderline and have also struggled with Avoidant Personality Disorder. I also have Complex PTSD due to having been the victim of narcissistic abuse for most of my life. I write mostly about narcissism, because I was the child of a narcissistic mother, and then married to a sociopathic malignant narcissist for 20 years. But there's a silver lining too. In some ways they taught me about myself. This blog is about all that. Not all my articles will be about NPD, BPD or other personality disorders or mental conditions. I pretty much write about whatever's on my mind at the moment. So there's something for everyone here. Blogging about stuff is crack for my soul. It's self therapy, and hopefully my insights and observations may help others too.
