Nowt wrong with that picture and the Snooty Brits need to back off being so Stuck Up and offended by every little thing they class as inappropriate!!

Society has gone very anti everything.Its ridiculous!!

Bring back the 70,s where you could smoke anywhere,Eat Fried breakfasts without feeling guilty,Harmlessly Wolf Whistle at women (without getting thrown in Jail for Sexual Harassment)

Do you know I could not even take pictures of my Daughter at the Park a few years ago without looks of Disgust!!?

I like the bit where it says it could classed as a subliminal message to men that its their responsibility to get the air con fixed and therefore gender stereotyping.
Absolute tosh.

I took one of my grand daughters swimming last year with one of her friends and when they where in the pool I went pool side and asked them to wave so I could send there mums a photo, an attendant came over to me and asked what I was doing, I said taking a photo and she told me to put the phone away or leave the complex even after I told her she was my grand daughter, FFS!!!!

Cool

No doubt the "PC Police" is alive and well.

"The air conditioning advert - described by an academic as "plain sexist" - features the line: "Your wife is hot!"

The above line from this so called F**ktard academic is exactly why our young people today need trigger warnings and safe places to be sheltered from the mean cruel world that awaits them. What a bunch of wimps we are raising.

If I'm the owner of that ad I wouldn't cave to these idiots and remove the sign. I'd rather do business with people with a sense of humor as opposed to people so easily offended by words.

My point being is it seems the squeaky wheel minority and media, have somehow inflicted their stupid beliefs on the rest of us and I'm tired of it. I think more people feel the same way but are too afraid to speak up.
