London’s Muslim Mayor prefers “burqas to bikinis”? Khan bans “fat-shaming” ads in name of “diversity”

It didn’t take all that long for London, England’s newly-elected Muslim mayor, Sadiq Khan, to embrace the tenets of sharia law and apply his Islamic sensibilities to the advertising world.  

Mayor Khan is calling for a ban on ads that depict scantily-clad thin women. Apparently, Khan prefers burqas over bikinis.

In a letter published in The Guardian, Mayor Khan says images such as the “Beach Body Ready” advertisement by Protein World send a harmful message, saying:

“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.”

His concern led him to getting the city’s transit system to create a new bureaucracy called the “Advertising Steering Group” to ensure ads on buses and subways will “reflect London's diversity.”

Seriously, is this really a pressing issue for one of the great cities of the world?

Watch as I explain and ask the obvious questions this strange case of busybody overreach inspires and wonder, is this is really about so-called “fat-shaming”?

I also wonder how long it will be before such regulatory madness in regard to advertising is exported to Canada?

I’m sorry. I know this is important and I don’t want anyone to think I’m being dismissive or making light of such an important issue, but I go deaf in both ears the minute Menzies says “woman” when he should be saying “women”. I love you like the brother my mother never had, but get a speech coach, Menzies!

BORIS & NATASHA… “Ochen Harasho!” and welcome to Canada…

No No, please. Your last name which ever one you choose is okay by me!

Liza, Boris here. You are the real ball buster. Now Natasha tells me she doesn’t want to be offensive to her female comrades so we can never use our last name on posts. Yukshamia, what’s next, only having sex on days that end is y? You Western girls are mean.
commented 2016-07-20 19:42:09 -0400
Liza, to make it less offensive and to piss Boris off, I’ll forgo our last name in future posts.

Sorry for the delay, I was out doing women’s work buying potatoes, dough, borscht and vodka plus putting gas in the truck so I could pull the plow.
Shebel, child bearing hips are a staple of all fertile, sexual women not just us babushka wearing, pierogi eating, babes of the Eastern Bloc. Although, my Baba did have 8 kids before she was 19 and the tradition continues with Boris and I with Svetlana, Olga, Niki, Iskra, Anna, Katrina, Boris Jr and little Alexsi.
Anne, radical feminist no, I’m more of a traditional Ruski/Western “Don’t fuck with me or I’ll rip your face off” gal with a feminine side. Meaning I like sex but if you piss me off you’ll you’ll wish Lorena Bobbitt was your girl friend. Hence the masculine version Ballcrushininski to keep Boris on his toes.

Natasha I would have said the same, but I absolutely accept you for who you are.

Andy, it won’t matter. The Sharia Muslims will out number the Brits by then, if they haven’t done already. How do you think London England ended up with a Muslim Mayor. As time passes we’ll see just how Sharia he really is.

I’m just waiting for the day this little dictator tells British pubs to serve only halal foods… And alcohol-free imitation beer…
commented 2016-07-20 17:13:03 -0400
Natasha, you little hellion! You even dared to defy Russian convention by using the masculine form of your surname rather than Ballcrushinska. Please, please, please tell me you’re not a radical feminist!
commented 2016-07-20 17:01:35 -0400
I remember hearing that old Homesteaders had a severe hankering for Russian females because they were built for child bearing and pulling a plow.

Liza, when we were married in Mother Russia, keeping your maiden name was tantamount to accepting a one way ticket to a Gulag. Then again, had I kept my maiden name of Ballcrushininski I doubt you would complain. Us women must stick together so please accept me for who I am.
commented 2016-07-20 15:16:44 -0400
Natashia with the unfortunate last name, I assume a pen name, you missed your calling. I spat out my coffee.

Please, as a Mother, I tell our daughter, little Svetlana, to flaunt it if she’s got it. What redneck Canadian boy doesn’t like to look at a little skin? Sure, some fat girls wear embarrassingly unflattering clothes, or lack thereof, and seem to be very proud of their look, but shouldn’t we all be encouraging that from our daughters too? Okay, I have seen Boris toss his cookies after viewing of pair of cottage cheese ham hock thighs but hey, Chubby Chasers need something to look at too. But you can’t tell me that when you see those massive boobs of a plus size girl drive by on a bus ad, that lingerie sales don’t go through the roof at Lane Bryant. Advertising works Mayor and helps the economy. Hell, ever since we moved here from Mother Russia, and now that it is culturally and socially acceptable to shave my legs to where I don’t look like a werewolf heading east, that my pits are groomed to where they don’t look like I have Brent Burns’ playoff beard under each arm, and I trim my pubes to where they don’t stick out of my panties like a Robertson Duck Dynasty chin, Boris says I look pretty damn good in a bikini. That makes me feel good.
Adapt you stupid fucking Muslim pricks and if you don’t like what you see, don’t look. Hey major, if you don’t like it, take your camel fucking brethren and go back to your caves because you’re not helping your daughter’s self esteem knowing that Muslim boys would rather jerk off to a goat instead of your daughters in a burka.

not ‘perpetrating’, should read, ‘perpetuating’.
commented 2016-07-20 14:34:43 -0400
With all due respect, this is not about a fathers concern for the self esteem of his teenage daughters, or concern for perpetrating an unrealistic body image for women in general. This is a Muslim Mayor of the western city of London England, decreeing that women should cover themselves, as per Sharia law. This is blatant Sharia creep. He is counting on the fact that worried fathers will take his meaning as reasonable fatherly concern. Bullcrap, Khan is using taqiyya, deception and lying to push his sharia narrative.

Hmmmm not separation of church and state in that public policy making – A Christian would be condemned for it.

…there is only Islam…

I thought he was the Mayor, not the Dictator or the Caliph. I guess we now know.

Charles Moultin, the 20th of July is significant in history owing to Neil Armstrong’s famous quote:
At 10:56 p.m. EDT, American astronaut Neil Armstrong, 240,000 miles from Earth, speaks these words to more than a billion people listening at home: “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”
I am not fooled one bit by this Mayor. His attitude about women is deeply ingrained and he is not making an attempt to make a comment that is congruent with Western society. When Muslims are in power positions, they force their will on others. And like the Armstrong quote, this is one small step and you can bet there will be lots of giant leaps to follow.

Lying goat fucker – welcome to sharia London – it’s what you get when you choose a goat fucker to represent you.

I can’t say anything about this. As I have daughters and some of the advertisements are pretty sexual. This one isn’t about Muslim. It is about being a father with daughters.
