Looks like it was banned.


Television advertisements from US food giant Mondelez and German carmaker Volkswagen are the first to be banned under new UK gender stereotyping rules.

The first banned ad, for Philadelphia cheese, showed two fathers leaving a baby on a restaurant conveyor belt.


Meanwhile, three people complained about an ad for the Volkswagen eGolf car.

It showed a sleeping woman and a man in a tent on a sheer cliff face, two male astronauts floating in a space ship and a male para-athlete doing the long jump, before cutting to the final scene showing a woman sitting on a bench next to a pram.

Complainants said that the ad perpetuated harmful gender stereotypes by showing men engaged in adventurous activities in contrast to a woman in a care-giving role.

Hahaha, egads! They should obviously have had the women throwing the kids off cliffs with bungy ropes to assert their non gender specific teaching of risk and gender neutrality. Women are after all the teachers of the next gen and they have no problem with that label.

I wish all these gender benders would drown in their fluidity.
That would be great.

Politicians are like nappies; they need to be changed often and for the same reason.
The most difficult choice a politician must ever make is whether to be a hypocrite or a liar.

This is the thing cods,

The entire world at the moment at bowing down to a handful of mentally fragile people.

It only encourages other Mentally I'll Leftist to keep pushing the envelope until all of our right and freedom of speech are gone.

Because its actually a poo ad, and doesn't have anything to do with a purchase of a car?

In a time of universal deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

No evidence whatsoever it can be attributed to George Orwell or Eric Arthur Blair (in fact the same guy)

But what has been failed to be mentioned is that it was banned by the Advertising Standards Authority which is a self-regulatory organisation and cannot enforce legislation.

Why was it banned by the ASA?

Because they broke their code? I don't know, I'm just trying to introduce some facts into  the debate. It was started by SerialBrain9 so the assumption I used was there were no facts.
