Educating Young Girls on Roles

I saw this image over on Reddit (I must disclose that, or the reddit nazis will come after me for stealing content or blog spam), and it seemed to make the roles of Men and Women so clear, that even our readers could understand it. This is apparently an illustration from the 1970’s and as you would imagine, it has sparked a conversation of over 700 comments on Reddit. I can’t for the life of me figure out what is so controversial about this.
