U.K. Considering Regulating Ads to Make Sure the Women In Them Aren’t Too Hot
. . . Harrison Bergeron was a cautionary tale, not an instruction manual.
"The U.K.’s Advertising United Standards Authority is considering regulations to respond to complaints of “sexism” in advertising — including concerns that women in a lot of ads are basically too attractive.
According to a release published by the watchdog on Thursday, ads that present “an idealized or unrealistic body image . . . have gained considerable public interest,” and so it’s important to evaluate whether or not more needs to be done to stop them.
(The phrase “unrealistic body” refers to bodies like that of the woman featured in a Protein World as last year that caused that huge controversy in the U.K. over her attractiveness. In other words: It refers to people who are really hot.)"
So, our ads have too many hot chicks, and not enough pasty, pulpy SJW harridans? Really, I did not notice. I was too busy staring at the hot chicks in the local Victoria's Secret ad.
I can't wait to see this "woman" dolled up selling lingerie.
Go ahead the Onion try and parody this nonsense, I dare you.
