London mayor plans negative body image advert ban on Tube, buses and trains [Islamic Conquest]
BBC ^ | 6/13/2016 | Staff

Posted on 06/14/2016 4:15:50 PM PDT by Jan_Sobieski

Adverts promoting negative body images will be banned across the Transport for London (TfL) network from next month. As part of his mayoral election manifesto Sadiq Khan pledged to ban adverts promoting "unhealthy or unrealistic" body images. The advertising watchdog received 378 complaints in 2015 about a weight-loss advert that asked customers if they were "beach body ready?" Mr Khan has now asked TfL to set up its own advertising steering group. The Protein World "beach body ready" promotional posters were defaced in Tube stations and a petition was started calling for the adverts to be banned, however the Advertising Standards Agency (ASA) watchdog later ruled the advert depicting a bikini-clad female model was neither offensive nor irresponsible.

The steering group will advise TfL'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. Mr Khan said:

"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."

From its inception in the deserts of Arabia, Islam has been a religion of conquest. Islam, in fact, literally means "submission". That is why the sword is used as punishment for those who do not convert to Islam, and also as punishment for those who leave Islam. In the end, Muslims believe that all the world must convert to Islam. Additionally, one of the first things that occurs when a country is colonized or conquered by Islam, is women are forced to wear burqas and/or raped and enslaved.

From a Christian historical perspective, Islam is an Antichrist religion. According to 1 John 2:22 (22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.). Islam is Satan's response to Christianity. He had 600 years to plan his strategy to counter Christ Jesus, and Satan has progressively implemented this strategy for the last 1400 years. Only truth has saved the western world from Islam's cruel grip. Since the west has now jettisoned truth, Islam (like an opportunistic virus) is rushing in to take over the sick host. We can thank our political leaders and our so-called Christian Leaders like Rick Warren, Pope Francis, Pope John Paul II, Robert Schuller, Joel Osteen, and others for leading us down this path by saying Christians and Muslims worship the same god. Nothing is further from the truth.

How does that work? Who decides what body images are “unhealthy” or “unrealistic”?

If fat people live longer than skinny people, then will all body images have to be fat?

If you happen to have a body that matches the image that is banned, isn’t that offensive to you?

A bus or a train looks kind of like a giant phallus.

Better ban them all.

And tunnels, that might remind us of the rear end of goats.

Taking your free speech/free expression.

But since he phrased it in a good liberal way, I’m sure most people will be thrilled. :)

This is something feminists, politicians, and the government in Britain have been talking about for some time.

Thousands signed a petition against the "Are You Beach Body Ready?" ads, and most of them probably weren't Muslims.

Sure...but two different root motivations. That is why the Mayor’s wife now wears a Hijab. Before he won the election, she did not wear one

FWIW,

I recall some elected officials in Spain, IIRC that wanted to ban ugly people from their nude beaches.

Sadiq Khan.

Just like New Yorkers elected Comrade de Blasio, the residents of Londonistan elected this erstwhile goat herder. I hope they live long enough, and suffer enough from their actions, to come to their senses and retake their city. May the Lord have mercy on them.

The lesson is clear. Bombing buses and the subway worked.
