United Nations Declares War On Boobs
It's Time to tell the United Nations to move their Circus HQ somewhere else. They're like a crazy aunt living in our attic......
Downtrend - The United Nations is on a roll. Recently they announced their efforts to makecultural appropriation illegal and now they want to ban boobs in advertising. I’m not even kidding about this. A UN group is aiming to ban any sexy ads that that reinforce negative stereotypes of women. What that means is anyone’s guess, but clearly the UN has their priorities straight because there are no more pressing issues than scantily-clad women in burger chain commercials.
The Unstereotype Alliance is part of the UN Women’s Group and their mission is “to banish stereotypical portrayals of gender in advertising and all brand led content.” See, I told you I wasn’t joking around. This is a serious thing, or actually it’s something that lunatics take seriously.
According to their mission statement, they will “tackle the widespread prevalence of stereotypes that are often perpetuated through advertising.” How exactly they plan on tackling this made up issue remains a mystery, but apparently tackling is a big part of the solution.
The UN is a ridiculous organization and this new initiative is all the proof you need. There are places where women do not have equal rights. There are countries where women are abused and murdered. A Carl’s Jr. ad doesn’t make Muslims mutilate the genitals of little girls. A Go Daddy commercial with below-average Danica Patrick isn’t why women are stoned to death because that’s what passes for divorce proceedings in certain places. If the UN really wants to help some worldwide, why not go after the after the mostly Islamic countries where women are treated like property?
