London's Muslim mayor BANS ads featuring sexy women from public transit

StaffRebel Columnist

It seems London's Muslim mayor would rather have women wearing burkas than bikinis.

Sadiq Khan announced on Monday that “body shaming” advertisements are no longer allowed on public transit.

“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.

So, Khan doesn't like women who look pretty?

“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,” he added.

While Khan did not say exactly what ads would be banned, he posted a news story featuring a woman in a bikini on his Twitter to promote the new ban on “body shaming”.

The ad in question was for 'Protein World' and features a woman in a bikini that asked “are you beach body ready?”

70,000 people signed a petition opposing the advertisement.

Bethina,… Just on the topic of love…my wife who died a decade ago had a twin brother. His partner was among the first in Canada to fall to the AIDS epidemic. She worked in multiculturalism and AIDS advocacy….and I was her best volunteer….I still have the ribbons pins and thankyou certificates. I don’t virtue signal with these things.

If I ever had the honour of meeting Milo Yiannopolis I would slip into an outrageous queen persona Robin Williams style and the exchange of banter would be hilarious…those who know me know that.

But I digress…among the first casualties of the AIDS epidemic was songsmith Howard Ashman who worked for Disney….the epitaph on his tombstone reads ’OH BUT HE HAD ANOTHER SONG TO SING"

When he was given the project to compose the lyrics of “Beauty and the Beast”…he started out by simply outlining the task he was given…then he filled in the gaps with his own experience.

And then contrary to the notion of love you have spat in our faces he came up with this…

Betina, I have never found an MP3 of it or an example of it on YOUTUBE. But when I was doing my photojournalism work on transsexuals there was a song I heard several drag queens sing “I Got The Fag Hag Blues”…which lamented that no matter how much of a fan of gay men you were or how much you adored them…they were going home with Billy, Jack or Michael,,,but they just weren’t going to go home with you.

I have seen utterly stunning strippers mount a Harley with the ugliest smelliest biker you could imagine.

And don’t get me started on pimps.

Trailer Trash Lucy was sweet on that little slug Gomeshi even after he smacked her around and gave her the necklace of fingers.

Love is a many splendoured thing Betina…….and I don’t think anybody here cares about your tastes or your views on the subject….:-)

You’re welcome. I’m beginning to wonder what happened to a healthy debate. Judging by the responses in the thread. I almost want to turn in my card.

Thank you.

The article should be about a mayor who bans ads that, he feels, demeans women and makes them ashamed of their body. The fact that he is muslim should not be a factor. I have lived in and around Toronto a long time and I have seen far worse from Mayors of all faiths. I am a conservative, have voted conservative,will always vote conservative. Betina has her point and if you don’t agree, have the discussion, but you shouldn’t attack her personally. It demeans what being a conservative should be about.

“Betina you do not troll effectively , no one takes you seriously.”

The very fact that you even reply proves your statement to be untrue.

It’s so easy to get all you petty, angry, misguided balls of testosterone going.

It’s laughable.

And don’t for a second bring out the misandry word.

I love many men. I think men are fantastic.

Just not the misogynistic berks who post their bile on here.

You are such a tit, Robert Raymond.

Why don’t you do a little research before ranting like that?

Sorry, it seems the removal of pork by Tim Horton’s was a false story. I should know not to believe everything on the net!
My apologies!

It’s time to boycot Tim Hortons!

Betina they have been doing it since Islam became a religion, how do you think the middle east became Islamic? And the left calls people names all the time, so spare us the whining, a bunch of progressives telling someone they are horrible or racist or whatever because they are male, white or Christian is pathetic and insulting as well.

Betina you do not troll effectively , no one takes you seriously.

This really makes no sense to me, you cannot see a womans body , but you can see a mans body, yet you are not supposed to be gay??
commented 2016-06-15 01:58:09 -0400
Betina come ask the women who come to the store i work at in their body bag burkas. And Europe has done lots they have demanded, did you miss that?

The one positive to London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s edict is that it helps focus the minds of the British electorate going into next Thursday’s Brexit vote… He tipped his hand a tad early as to what’s in store for the English should they keep flooding the country with more muzzies…. What’s next?… No more pork sausages at the local pub?…

Sharia Law is coming to London. Can’t say I feel sorry for them as he was voted in by all the muslim refugees they allowed into the country along with all the useful idiot muslim sympathizers. Anyone would have to be complete idiots not to have seen this coming. We will be in the same boat if Justin Mohamed keeps flooding our country with muslims refugees. The funny thing is it just might backfire on him in the future as I could see a scenario where the NDP pick a muslim to be their leader. Once there are enough muslims in the country they, along with the socialists, could have enogh votes to elect our first Muslim Prime Minister. If it happened in London it could happen here.

Muslims don’t hate women (I wouldn’t say that I know a tonne of Muslims, but I do know quite a few).

Muslims are not coming to rape our children (Although I wouldn’t say that I know many Muslims, but I do know a few).

Islam is simply another path to faith. And there is nothing wrong with that.

Many of you on here bring forth some interesting arguments, and I really do respect that.

But… wow… there are a lot of nasty people who comment on this site (and for your notice, I DO NOT require a Safe Space).

One of the reasons that I comment on here (and troll you all so effectively) is because of this.

How about we have a some-what measured discussion?

I’d like to speak with some other women? even if they don’t agree with me.

How do you feel about the way these MEN have spoken to me?

Calling me a “wretched vile cunt” and the like.

Do you feel that to be an acceptable way to speak to a woman online?

As right now it feels like a lot of angry men on here.

I’m about to give this site up, as I was looking for some decent Libertarian discourse, but there seems to be nothing but vile misogyny.

I was hoping for so much more… but you seem like SUCH a bunch of women-hating dicks.

“On Betina’s Facebook profile she’s wearing a niqab.?”

As I said, many of you are delusional, and see all sorts of stuff.

That’s my jumper.

My jumper.

Geez, Daryl, I’ve wracked my brain and can’t come up with it – who could the other 1% be, Syrian refugees, signing an assumed English name?

On your other point, what they don’t tell their jihadists is that their 72 virgins will be nerdy pimply mommy’s-basement-dwelling Liberal-voting gender-confused queer-loving climate-change-fanatic welfare-recipient reality-detached Canadian white male TruD’Oh groupies who spent their lives on the CBC forums.

And if THAT don’t get me a visit from Trudeau’s new-hate-speech-law thought police … well, I guess I’ll have to try harder. Wanna be cellmates?

Doug – I don’t think that is so secret! …and probably 99% are Arabic assholes who don’t even know what “good” sex is. They are still “dreaming” of that 72 YO virgin in the other world.

I would love to get a secret look at that petition, and read the names on it for myself.

My secret conspiracy-theory alter ego suspects a lot of the names might be Arabic.

Of course. Muslims hate women!

Betina, you just grossed me out. I don’t want to even imagine I “raised” something or anything in you… So, how can you be body shamed when wearing a garbage bag? Full and bulging is it? Gross. Stay indoors please.

hefty bags do nothing to enhance the female physique… maybe in a strong breeze but I still prefer a nice smile.
