Dear @Xbox : I game. My (soon-to-be) husband doesn't. We both (try to) knit. Your strict gender role beliefs are bad marketing. Grow up. — Sylvia Nowak (@SylviaNowak) November 27, 2013

The source the author's article takes for income earnings is twisted in a negative manner in order to provoke a response. All of these statistics are heavily generalized, and as such, it's obvious that there would be some perceived injustice apparent.
What's wrong is that there is no piece-by-piece breakdown of income per specific field of study, and, honestly, it should be obvious that a man or woman majoring in a hard science or engineering should make more than a man or woman majoring in something like English. According to http://www.studentsreview.com/salary_by_major.php3, the starting salary for an English major is 40k vs. 54k as the average of all starting salaries for someone majoring in engineering.
Now account for the fact that men, on average, will be more comfortable with working longer hours and that men, traditionally, take riskier jobs that are inherently higher paying, and THEN you create the wage gap. HOWEVER, the wage gap does not originate from the evil male gender fixing its canon 'gainst the opposite gender in order to oppress them, but the fields in which men tend to study in compared to women, the risk factor of the job, and the hours typically worked.
You can't just try and play the sensationalist card in order to generate some controversy that only exists in the minds of people who equate 'Average' with 'Average, for every job.'
This is veering off topic, but in essence what you're saying is, the gender wage gap can be completely explained away to the point where it doesn't really exist, at least not in a male oppressive manner?
Unfortunately, studies and data don't back the assertion that the gender wage gap is entirely innocent.
people will bitch about anything and everything
If the ad was biased against men it'd never make the news. Double standard much?
Your comment isn't valid, sorry. You're correct that an ad biased against men wouldn't make the news, but that's because men as a group aren't an oppressed minority. Women have historically been an oppressed group compared to men, particularly as it pertains to gender roles, so playing on those tropes is offensive to many.
We can talk about the issues pertaining to the proliferation of traditional male gender roles and the harm those can do to men on a different post.
Not news worthy.
