You’d Think They’d Be Used To Snowflakes In Norway..

Advertisers will no longer be able to show images of male or female bikini and underwear models in public spaces in Trondheim, the country’s third-largest city.

On Tuesday council officials voted to remove all billboards and posters that could be seen to contribute to body image issues.

Norway mush have no parking issues, no pothole or refuse issues, no other pressing business for councillors to meddle in, if avoiding unpleasant reminders for flabmonsters is the sort of thing that occupies their time.

Needless to say, it’s pounced on by the usual suspects:

Caitlin Roper, campaigns manager at anti-objectification movement Collective Shout, told The Independent: “It’s great to see Trondheim being proactive about these pressing concerns. Advertisers have had free reign for too long.

“In combatting body image issues, a community wide approach is required. This is just one piece in the puzzle, but it is an important one.

“We have long argued that advertising that reduces women to sexual objects for men’s use and entertainment should have no place in a progressive society.

I feel other countries such as the UK would welcome similar action on these issues.”

You mean people like you would. And it’s notable that Norway mentions male images, while you hear only what you want to hear.

So who’s truly progressive?

    So, do our lords and masters want us to eat only government approved food and do the regulation amount of exercise? Or do they want us to be fat and ugly and be protected from feeling bad about it by us not being exposed to any images of people with fit looking bodies?

    I do not think that Norway has stepped into the equality midden as far as we have been pushed – here in Britain.

    Much as I admire and respect fat people for being able to con the rest of the world – well Britain anyway – that it’s all the fault of thin people “making me eat fat stuff” and give me more benefits so that I can purchase my new soopa bed and crane to move it in to my 20 storey council dump…………..

    No, not at all, this is sumfing to do wiv the brothers innit?

    Recall, if you will, the tales of the ‘religious police’ going about their business in Tower Hamlets – amid haranguing white people for drinking alcohol! and queer bashing, they were spray painting over adverts showing scantily clad comely females.

    Nah it’s not fat people, its appeasement of the cultsmen who worship the new old ideology only recently re-introduced (without a by your leave) to all of Europe, its worst face, t hat of Isil and Turkey – Wahhabism, Doebandi – same bloody thing.

    I’ll never condone Anders Brevik – but I can see what he was alluding to and I can say that, Anders Brevik was fighting Fascism – as his forefathers did in 1941-45, his methods were bad, his ideals were right.

    Billboards of the partially dressed are quite innocuous compared with magazine/media images from the “Fashion Industry”.
    I’m surprised Roper & other SJWs are not more concerned with the body-shape message that is promoted by this vacuous and superficial industry, especially as it employs a disproportionate number of gay men – another “no no” for the “religion of peace”.

      And a disproportionate number of women…

    What about all those young whores?

    Walking about in short skirts, showing off their arms or god forbid, a bit of cleavage!

    They will have to be dealt with too!
