    Sexist bastards!

    Hotel Chain Withdraws Magazine Advert After It Is Called 'Sexist'

    What do you make of this pic? Looks like a normal ad for the Sofitel hotel in Brisbane, Australia, a lovely couple sitting around in a pair of matching hotel bathrobes eating a continental breakfast in bed.

    Or so it would appear. Turns out the hotel has been forced to drop this advert because some people think it is sexist.

    Can you see what's triggered the snowflakes?




    No cheating!

    He's reading a financial paper and she's reading a woman's magazine? (potrayed as intelligent man v bimbo)

    The newspaper has pictures of three men but no pictures of women? (discrimination against women)

    The man is wearing a watch when he should be making more time for his wife? (uncaring man, victim woman)

    The man is not wearing a wedding ring so he's in bed with a woman other than his wife? (cheating male bar steward)

    Bloody stupid feminazi wannabes making a mountain out of a flat plane of sand.
    Yeah the woman might read the Financial Times too, but she was photographed reading something else. So what?
    Sofitel should have stuck to their guns.

    The absolute Facebook winning comment of the day from a 64 year old lady:

    "What’s happened to the world. Before my husband died, me and Roy would pound away for hours in an hotel room and then have breakfast in bed surrounding by pools of his jizz".

    I doubt it translates to sexist but he ain't got no ring on his finger.

    I agree w/ above - the literature choices threw the fem nazis into yet another tizzy.

    hole in 1...I could've looked all day for something that could be twisted as sexist by the most demented feminazi, never would've seen it.

    Actually I might have taken a stab at the paper/magazine choices, eventually; otoh the height of sexism surely is having the eye, mindset and obsession to find fault in an innocuous hotel ad.

    That's because you are a thick-headed, gormless twat with all the perspicacity of a fucking retarded mole with cataracts.

    ...she apparently shaves her legs to improve her appearance...while he doesn't feel such personal tidiness is necessary...
    ...she is fair-skinned delectable while he is darker with manly beard suggesting potency...
    ...his finger spread hints at multi-pronged attack while her modest separation points to titillating accommodation...

    ...what sexist filth...

    His lascivious smile and lustful look vs her sweetly smiling innocence. Staged to make men look like potential rapists. You're right Tom, it's sexist filth.

    Can't do that!

    Waitrose Forced To Rename Their 'Sexist' Sandwich After Complaints

    High end supermarket chain Waitrose has been forced to change the name of one of its sandwiches after receiving a torrent of criticism online.

    The 'Gentleman's Smoked Chicken Caesar Roll' was launched as part of the store's Heston Blumenthal range, but it doesn't appear to have had the desired effect. At. All.

    Amy Lamé, who works for London Mayor, Sadiq Khan, shared a picture of the controversial snack on Twitter yesterday, commenting: "I never knew sandwiches were gender specific. I'm female but thankfully Waitrose let me purchase this anyway."

    Waitrose have apologised and will change the name. Wimps!

    A photo of woman wearing a pearl necklace. In this day and age. Shocking!






    Brings back some happy memories of when pearl necklace didn't necessarily mean a necklace made of pearls.

    Some guy protested that Mothercare's sexist, but I don't think they're worrying too much because everyone knows sexism is a one-way gig.

    Possibly, but a glaring menu omission.
