UK Bans Ads Featuring Stereotypically Stupid Women And Moronic Men-PC culture wins again

The UK is set to outlaw ads depicting negative gender stereotypes, such as women who can’t park a car or men who don’t know how to change a diaper, according to Reuters.

Britain’s Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) said that some stereotypes are harmful – particularly those which belittle men for carrying out traditionally female tasks, or which suggest that young mothers should prioritize looking good over their emotional wellbeing.

“Our new rule calls time on stereotypes that hold back people and society,” said Shahriar Coupal, director of the Committees of Advertising Practice (CAP) – the body which sets the advertising guidelines the ASA follows.
