      So the UK Tory party are now considered “the radical left” now by Yanks? Y’know I think you might need to look at yourself before referring to anyone else as “radical” you idiot(ding).

      You are really obsessed with homosexuality aren’t you? Y’know mate it’s OK to be honest about your “tastes”, no one here will judge you just for being a bender, we in fact judge you harsher for being so dishonest. So Bill, come out of closet and you might be happier openly visiting those clubs with mustached men in leather caps that you have to sneak into secretly right now.

    • @John Balnis They are if they’re LIBERALS.

    • @Darth Wheezius I support Trump not LGBTQ.

      So by being a Trumplodyte you do admit to like being bent over, greased up and getting fucked hard in the arse then, honesty from you finally Bill.

  2. LMAO. Harm? Widespread offense? What a… Ugh.

  3. I saw a lady with a stroller the other day. Weird

    • @shade38211 Speak for yourself, Einstein. Maybe some men are not worthy of being parents. Just like those idiots who forget their kids & pets in cars. You left your child in a Pharmacy? That’s on you. I NEVER forgot my children anywhere & they were the first & last things on my mind 24/7.

      Funny that, so you don’t think that generation after generation of little girls practicing with toy prams, baby dolls, toy vacuum cleaners and so on has anything to do with it, while us men’s childhoods were practicing with toy guns and stuff does not contribute also. Interesting, you should publish that at the Royal Institute ‘coz I’m sure nobody ever thought of that one before. BTW the new ad codes followed decades of scientific research into Human behaviour and the influences of external stimulae on society, it’s conclusions have been peer reviewed and confirmed. In the past we banned racial stereotyping and guess what? Overt racism in society declined, violent acts between ethnic groups declined. This is just part of the process that one part of it’s aim is to try to lower rates of domestic abuse which is in part exacerbated by inequalities between genders, which in some ways are worse in the UK than in the US, we still live with a few throwbacks to having our last break in history over 850 years ago.

      Oh and to say women are hard wired to care for kids just tells me you never met a chav mum, ‘coz all they’re good for is raising obnoxious little bastards that can barely write their own name and vandalise stuff.

  4. Good luck with tampon ads in the UK

    • @G Christina wow, what if man like me wanna buy them for no reason? We need to protest about this, i demand they stop gender stereotyping. Its not like they show how they’re being used on ads….

      The only stereotypes to worry about in these ads are all the rollerskating and sky diving women all wearing the whitest of wight fine leggings.

      You may want to rephrase “opens the floodgates” in this context. Let me explain it too you in simple terms;- The standards authority is not about banning stereotypes but the lazy ad makers always go to lazy tropes, ie men are incompetent morons that need women for their own well being and women are little more than incubation chambers and house maids. These lazy ad makers represent the talentless and useless parts of their business, in another life they would telephone sanitation workers. Our best ads do not rely on lazy stereotypes, this is one of our modern favourites;- We have an otherwise excellent ad industry that makes US ads seem cheap, lazy and a bit crappy by comparison.

      @William H
      I’m sure they don’t consider it shameful, also tampons can be used on petrol engines to help drive SUVs through rivers, so even “manly” men who go offroading in between serial killings have a use for them.

    • @Darth Wheezius Obviously HOMOSEXUALS don’t consider anything shameful.

  5. It’s a. Control and power experiment thing, nothing to do with protection

  6. So if you see a woman sitting on a bench with a pram (pushchair) be sure to tell her she’s reinforcing stereotypes!

    • All women should be ashamed to be seen with prams! How derogatory to show a female as a mother!

    • That’s the progressive left for you.
      God help the US if Democrats win the next election, they are filled with progressive leftists.

    • I blame the sperm donors they are a bunch of wankers

      This anchor hasn’t got a fucking clue, in the UK the most common go to trope about men in adverts is that we are all incompetent morons that have to be ruled by women for our own well being. The most common go to trope about women is that they are always in the house either doing service there for their men or gossiping over a cuppa on their couch. Our most remembered ads are always the creative ones that do neither.

  7. Wait, wheres Don Lemon? I wanna see him :0

  8. I’m a liberal person that can understand some social justice positions however I’d say that the complaints then banning of the cream cheese ad is ridiculous. It’s actually kinda funny but the VW I can understand, just a lil bit, but not completely. Still a bit ridiculous, as well.

    Not every ad has to be completely PC because on the flipside there are and will be ads that show men being very responsible dad’s and women being in positions of strength. Nowadays, we have a bit of everything to represent all types of things that counter stereotypes.

    In certain ways, ppl need to lighten up but on the other hand, some ppl are too anti-pc no matter what it is. Some ppl get mad when they see women in dominant roles claiming it’s not possible or they don’t believe a certain types of ppl or relationships should be reprented in film, ads, commercials, yada, as if these ppl or relationships don’t exist in real life like that interracial Cheerios ad yrs ago or even the trans woman shaving in the razor blade commercial.

    There are extremes on both sides.

      You must be tired from your transgender operation

    • I’d like to see women portrayed as strong and responsible without the “take that, men in general” approach that seems to permeate everything anymore.
      It’s boring. As boring as the age old “damsel in distress” theme.
      When (if) hollwood learns to write past that, folks on both sides will chill out and realize that a lot of wedge issues are being generated for revenue. I mean, who knew about this “outrage” before CNN ran this segment?

    • Nice try liberal scum ! So you’re saying that dividing some of us is okay; but now not all of us ! Nice try to make you look more middle-of-the-road ! nice try to win back some of the voters that found out your true colors you liberal socialist traitor to this nation ! and if you’re from Europe you’re a traitor to your homelands that have thousands of years of history your flushing down the tube for political correctness and social justice your f****** disgusting !

    • @Dan Customer Smoke some weed and chill out man, because right now you sound like David Duke posing as a ANTIFA supporter .

  9. They looked like a couple. 🤣👌🤣

  10. Corporate civil wars.

    We don’t agree with you so we ban your products.
    How much power they give to a cream cheese commercial. 🤯

    • FACT warren to win she has got to reach out to voters who can read and write that is a hard task with liberals
