The Advert

This current advertising campaign appears to contextualise any male attention (however boorish) to the female form as tantamount to rape. I appreciate that any form of sexual abuse is utterly unacceptable; but would have thought that "Some guys have serious issues and should be avoided" would be a more apt advertising slogan. I would rather not be tarred by the same (very broad) brush.

I don't know is more to blame, FHM or Andrea Dworkin.

This isn't about you Neil.

This is about the historical institutional endorsement of sexual violence against women's bodies, or 'form' as you put it.

Everyone has a part to play in opposing this - perhaps you could spend less time on the delusion that you are misrepresented on a TV commercial and more energy on the reality of the message it conveys.

This is focusing on the myths of rape, not that men are interested in raping someone because they show them attention.
