UK PC Police “Draw The Line” – Ban Cream-Cheese & Car Ads Over ‘Gender Stereotypes’

 

Thew deeper the government gets into every business decision, the more potential for soft bribes aimed at the government.

Anyway what business is it of regulators to determine how a company wants to sell its products? (And we aren’t talking about tobacco or alcohol here, but electric hatchbacks and cream cheese.)

(From Zerohedge)

On Wednesday, the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) announced that they “drew the line” over ads by Volkswagen and cream cheese maker Philadelphia for perpetuating the offensive stereotypes, according to DW.com.

In Volkswagen’s case, their ad featured men participating in adventurous activities, while women sat on a beach next to a baby buggy. According to the ASA, “images of men in extraordinary environments and carrying out adventurous activities” vs. “women who appeared passive” were stereotypical and not nice.
