UK Bans Diesel ads – but not because of offense to women

Via Melinda Tankard Reist

The Revolution of Real Women has criticised the UK’s advertising watchdog for banning the Diesel ‘Be Stupid’ ads – for the wrong reasons.


The ads were banned not because they were objectifying and offensive to women, but because they might encourage copy-cat behaviour (cos like a woman in a bikini is going to take a photo of her genitals with a lion lurking in the background).

As RORW writes: “…this is an ad campaign that BLATANTLY preaches that appearances, promiscuity and sexiness is far more important than WHO we are and what we accomplish”.
