Kecantikan Dilarang – Fat-Ass Feminists Get Bikini Ad Banned!
Believe it or not, this innocuous advertisement has been banned in Britain!
I have often had to post on imbecilic censorship here in Indonesia, the way TV channels have to impose silly little opaque obstacles to deny us a decent view of cleavage, etc.
But that’s just backward benighted kill-joys, you say – no way such nonsense would occur in the West.
‘IT CAN’T HAPPEN HERE?’
But it has!
It’s been banned by the UK Advertising Standards Authority!
A couple of uptight bints, named Tara Costello and Fiona Longmuir, have mobilised a monstrous regiment of pitifully inadequate and/or grotty women, to protest against ‘body-shaming media!’
Some clown named Charlotte Baring (all?) has begun a petition, shrilling that “Protein World is directly targeting individuals, aiming to make them feel physically inferior to the unrealistic body image of the bronzed model, in order to sell their product,” http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/health/news/11571978/Beach-body-ready-campaign-to-be-investigated-by-watchdog.html.
A ‘taking back the beach’ event has been held for grotbags last weekend in Hyde Park, hundreds of women with less than perfect shapes out to display their jealousy…
… and Protein World has been getting death threats!
Now if there’s a question over the ad’s claims about the benefits of the product, okay – if it’s misleading over facts, then the ASA has the right and duty to intervene.
But it’s gone way over the top, accepting as legitimate the mini-tsunami of complaints NOT about the factual claims but about ‘hurt feelings.’
The ASA will investigate the ads to see if they are in breach of the UK code relating to taste, decency and harm and offence..
FOR PITY’S SAKE!
Look at these photos – do they upset you?
There’s nothing remotely offensive about lovely young girls in a bikini – except of course to a pack of tantrum-prone tarts whose personal appearance can’t hack it…
…. and who therefore just HATE to see a woman with a worthwhile figure held up for public admiration.
What the hell do these creepy cows expect to see on an add?
The obese and the skeletal females pictured above may be charming and clever, but I would NOT want to look at them as illustrations on an ad for a health product or for any other reason.
They are off-putting.
The model in the Protein ad is not. She’s attractive.
And I understand why unattractive women might find the ad a turn -off.
But their hurt feelings are their problem. Not grounds for censorship.
- The AFA should tell the lard-asses to sling their hook!
