Highly doubtful since men are to be showered with a slew of 72 virgins...AFTER DEATH.
I've asked on different sites if that's what men get, what can women expect? Haven't gotten even one silly, or otherwise, answer. So...anyone?
As part of his mayoral election manifesto, Sadiq Khan pledged to ban adverts promoting “unhealthy or unrealistic” body images from trains, both overground and underground, and buses. The Labour mayor was elected last month.
The U.K.’s advertising watchdog received 378 complaints in 2015 about a weight-loss advert that asked customers if they were “beach body ready?” Protein World’s promotional posters were defaced in Tube stations and a petition was started calling for the adverts to be banned. The Advertising Standards Agency (ASA) later ruled that showing a bikini-clad female model was neither offensive nor irresponsible. The steering group will advise the network’s advertising partners and stakeholders of the mayor's new policy and will ensure adverts continue to adhere to the regulations set out by the ASA.

So what's your saying is he's such a poor parent that seeing an add is going to cause his daughters to have a melt down? And they are insecure and have low self esteem maybe he needs to hire a nany she can teach them self worth.
Effects of Media
There is no single cause of body dissatisfaction or disordered eating. But, research is increasingly clear that media does indeed contribute and that exposure to and pressure exerted by media increase body dissatisfaction and disordered eating.
. Numerous correlational and experimental studies have linked exposure to the thin ideal in mass media to body dissatisfaction, internalization of the thin ideal, and disordered eating among women.
. The effect of media on women’s body dissatisfaction, thin ideal internalization, and disordered eating appears to be stronger among young adults than children and adolescents. This may suggest that long-term exposure during childhood and adolescence lays the foundation for the negative effects of media during early adulthood.

He is using his daughters as an excuse to force islam down people's throats by the slowly, slowly catches monkey method. Its what people deserve who voted for him despite knowing his links to unsavoury muslim groups and people.
