National Geographic shows ad portraying man with mosquito head as "progress" of public health education

Article here. Excerpt:

'Both world wars sparked campaigns against sexually transmitted diseases. World War I–era posters warned soldiers against promiscuity while pointedly avoiding words such as “syphilis” and “gonorrhea.” By World War II, language was more explicit: “You can’t beat the Axis if you get VD,” scolded one American poster. Starting in the 1980s, posters corrected misinformation about HIV/AIDS and urged condom use.'

A Google search for “Zika+honeymoon” turns up hundreds of thousands of results. This playful ad from the Arizona Department of Health Services directs would-be honeymooners to a website to find out more. (This image shows a man with a mosquito head.)"
I guess it's OK when it's men being portrayed as the carriers of disease.
