Aussie Feminists In A Tizzy Over Hahn Beer Ad

The Beast’s buddy Cam alerted him today to the developing fracas Downunder.

It seems that feminists have gone to court today to try to ban a beer ad they find offensive:

From The Herald Sun:

Beer ad a boo-boo

BEER ads starring a bikini-clad woman under the title “Hahn boobs” are under fire for offensive sexism.

The state’s peak health advisory body, VicHealth, has written to the Advertising Standards Bureau asking for the ads to be shelved.

VicHealth boss Todd Harper said the treatment of women in the ads was appalling.

A young man turns a love heart drawn in the sand by a bikini-wearing woman into a pair of breasts before swigging from a beer bottle in a TV ad promoting low carb beer Hahn Superdry.

“Our concern is not only the TV ad but the internet component which takes it to extremes in the inappropriate portrayal of drinking and sexual prowess,” Mr Harper said.

And what exactly is this offensive internet ad? Search no more, folks you can find it HERE!

Hm Рthat really  is offensive. The Bikini chick was better.

    Mate, I love my country. I love it with a passion, but the Femo-nazi’s need to be silenced.
    They took our guns in ’96, they took our civil libeties, but they WILL NEVER TAKE OUR BOOBS!
    (or beer)

    Come on now, do we really need another girly boob commercial? gawd. My teenage son is staring enough at girly boobs on tv.. we don’t need any more… of course, that is the only time the rugrat isn’t annoying me… a no win situation.

    Heeheee HAWWWWWWHAWWWaaaa. I’m sorry. It was funny. Of course, I have no sensibilities. I’m trying to dredge up some sort of outrage. Maybe tomorrow.

    Rule : If you would not want your mother, sister or daughter treated this way, then why is it acceptable to treat someone eles so? And yes, it is only a commercial, but by looking at the attidudes of those submitting commnets on the other site o this article, it is very, very obvious that this sort of humour only enforces the stereotype that women are sex objects for men’s pleasure. All you whining male thunder cunts need to stop degrading feminism and realise that it is your attitudes that need to be silenced. If anyone is talking hysterical trash replicant of that to a Nazi, Cam, it is you. Anyone who belittles feminism clearly does not know a thing about social history , thus their opinions don’t really matter.
