London libs go Victorian
An advertisement for a "weight loss" beverage is upsetting the Puritan sensibilities of liberals in London, who believe the ad is too sexy -- or in their verbiage “offensive, irresponsible and harmful because it promotes an unhealthy body image,” according to that bible of liberal bile, the Guardian. Someone has taken to defacing the ads with F-bombs and the like.
But as the Inquisitir pointed out: "Protein World’s Controversial ‘Are You Beach Body Ready?’ Ad Campaign Triples Sales Amid Change.org Petition."
This whole body image argument is comical. People claim that a Barbie doll or an ad somehow drives women to anorexia. If your gender is so weak that a mere picture of a woman in a bikini causes you to starve yourself to death, maybe you really are not ready for prime time.
But of course, this is all more liberal farce. On the one hand, liberals have led the way to lift bans and restrictions on pornography, while on the other hand they try to ban PG-rated ads of a woman in a bikini.
Liberals are logic impaired.
