Londonís Muslim Mayor Bans Sexy Women In Advertisements
The Daily Caller ^ | 6/13/2016 | Alex Pfeiffer

Sadiq Khan, London’s first Muslim mayor, announced Monday that “body shaming” advertisements will no longer be allowed in London’s public transport.

“As the father of two teenage girls, I am extremely concerned about this kind of advertising which can demean people, particularly women, and make them ashamed of their bodies. It is high time it came to an end,” Khan said.

The mayor added, “Nobody should feel pressurised, while they travel on the Tube or bus, into unrealistic expectations surrounding their bodies and I want to send a clear message to the advertising industry about this.”

Khan was not clear in what would determine which ads would be banned, as it doesn’t include all images of people in underwear or swimming clothes. Most underwear and bikini models though can be assumed to have non-average bodies.

Lol, by banning them in London, they’re effectively banned everywhere, and for Muslim sharia, not for body-consciousness.

it’s coming 100%. It’s in the raghead doctrine about keeping women subjugated.

There are a lot of pubs that serve alcohol and pork dishes. They expose the passers by to temptation and have no place in an observant city. That just the beginning. If the former mayor of NYC could ban big gulp drinks, this should be a breeze.

I want any six pack male lead actor to be banned from making movies because it makes me feel insecure next to my wife.

Makes about as much sense.

But he’s very smart, doing it under the guise of liberal feminism.
