So, people that can think for themselves and call out lies and manipulation in advertising are the Muppets. lol Is that a new type of reverse psychology. Watch out, they can use that in predatory advertising.

People can just think for themselves thus draw there own conclusions and opinions, then decide what they want to buy or look like.

Reverse psychology is everywhere I'm afraid.

As long as we consume in the manner that we do advertisements are always going to be there.

It's simply how we roll.

Will it take a whole generation to discover that destroying gender identity is the worst "harmful gender stereotype"?

Only gradually is the harm done by internet porn becoming clear. Meanwhile, ED is an epidemic among young men.
The people who said it was harmful were laughed at.

We will be making our own mead from our own honey from our beehives from our healthy lifestyles without anyone telling us we are doing it wrong. Life is grand at the top.

That would not be you or me though because we obviously give a rat arse(s) and it won't be too long before 10s of millions are shown advertising that is not harmful, so no harm no foul - and no fool.

The people who are advertising, and that's just about anyone and everyone with a product to punt, will always find there audience InTheLight, that's just how the cookie crumbles.

As to harmful, there is more harm in the air that you breathe each moment, and we don't advertise that fact.

I think it's great that we can bring all harmful subjects up front and centre in social media and lay it bare. Gotta go now.

Speaking from South Africa (although I can't imagine we are much different from global advertising trends), but more often than not (haven't done a tally or anything) but I get the feeling that men are usually made out to be bungling idiots (especially when it comes to apps and technology), or especially in flu season, as whiny sissies.

I find male stereotypes downright discriminatory (it applies both to white men, and men of color, although in the few instances where there is positive discrimination, and the male character is still a boss or CEO, it's exclusively a black man).

I don't think much is "great" in the UK at the moment.

Nor lightly to be anytime soon, unless we get our collective act together, the Tories out of Westminster and on with our day.

Chance, however, would be a fine thing indeed.

I mean just wait till Boris is PM and watch this nation degenerate even further down the toilet pan.

Advertising is only "fat shaming" if you think it is. How weak minded are you if you think that the only way you can feel good about yourself is if you see someone exactly like you in the popular media?

No one in the media looks exactly like me. I don't have boobs like those. My nose is too big, and I never wear makeup if I can help it. I prefer to be natural although clean and groomed.

That's not the ad girl of choice and I've never felt any less because of it, but then, I go out and make my own achievements. I know my self worth and all too often today, people let others tell them they're worthwhile instead of discovering it for themselves.


No, some advertising deliberately fat shames to sell products and their target audience is not you or me who know they are worthwhile. Not everybody is as blessed.


This is a product of the empty self-esteem environment and consumer culture. Teach people that they're always special just because they breathe and they can't cope when they discover they aren't precious little snowflakes. For get to teach people that ads are supposed to make you want a thing on top of that crisis of identity and self-worth and you have recipe for disaster, but the companies love it.

The Left are behind this madness and because of this, people are now walking on eggshells everyday, scared that they may say or do something that upsets someone's feelings. ENOUGH ALREADY!



No they aren't, this had cross party support. And also, there isn't a big Left / Right thing like in the U.S.

This has much more to do with the fact that most of us over here believe that anyone can be whatever they want to be, provided they work hard for it. So, for example in the ad that you mentionned, there is nothing wrong with girls becoming ballerinas. But to show that only girls can be become ballet dancers (rather than engineers, etc) is wrong - both morally and socially.

And if you think that only women should do housework, that says more about you than it does about anything else.

Everything has to be left v right in America. Libtard this and that.
