Volkswagen Commercial Banned in UK Because it Shows Woman Caring For a Baby

“The ad presented gender stereotypes in way that was likely to cause harm.”

Published

A Volkswagen commercial has been banned in the UK for violating “gender stereotypes” because it showed a woman caring for a baby.

Yes, really.

The ad shows a scene of a woman and a man in a tent on a cliff face, two male astronauts floating in a spaceship and a male para-athlete with a prosthetic leg doing the long jump.

At the end of the clip, a woman is seen sat on a bench next to a pram.

The commercial was banned by the UK Advertising Standard Authority (ASA) after just three people complained, with the ASA asserting that it violated gender stereotyping rules.

“By juxtaposing images of men in extraordinary environments and carrying out adventurous activities with women who appeared passive or engaged in a stereotypical care-giving role, we considered that the ad directly contrasted stereotypical male and female roles and characteristics in a manner that gave the impression that they were exclusively associated with one gender,” said the ASA. “We concluded that the ad presented gender stereotypes in way that was likely to cause harm and therefore breached the Code.”

Volkswagen tried to explain the meaning behind the ad, but it was to no avail.

“The core message of the ad was centred on the ability of the human spirit to adapt to challenges and change brought about by circumstances. They illustrated that through a number of different scenarios featuring various characters so that as diverse an audience as possible would be able to identify with the message.”

“They included the final scene of the woman in the park as a relatable example of adaptation to change, as they believed that welcoming a newborn into the family was a life changing experience that would be shared by many viewers, regardless of gender. The scene served a secondary purpose of illustrating the reduction of engine noise in an electric vehicle.”

Meanwhile, ads that reinforce negative gender stereotypes about men are still perfectly fine.

Ads showing an attractive woman in a bikini are banned on the London Underground, but ads promoting the homophobic country of Brunei which stones gay people to death are also fine.

The ASA also banned an ad featuring a sexy female mechanic after a single complaint because it could cause “offense” and was sexually suggestive.

So ads showing woman engaged in typically feminine roles are forbidden and ads showing women engaged in typically masculine roles are forbidden.

Comedian Speaks Out After He Was Refused Gig For Being ‘White, Straight Able-bodied Male’

“Cack-handed attempts at social engineering don’t help anyone.”

A British comedian has spoken out after he was turned down for a gig based on his race, sexuality and gender.

Nick Dixon, who has toured the UK comedy circuit extensively and had success as a movie writer, says that a comedy club operator informed a fan of Dixon’s that he wouldn’t be booking the comedian because he was a “white straight able-bodied male”.

The club owner told the fan “I kind of have a million billion really good white, straight able-bodied male comedians I can call upon.  I’m trying to find more of the opposite.”

The message continued, “When I say the opposite I don’t necessarily mean a black gay woman in a wheelchair, but I’ve seen how hard it is for female acts, black acts etc to get on good bills.”

This is not an isolated incident where comedy clubs are concerned.

Dixon says that such discrimination is happening to every white comedian in the country, but many are afraid to speak up.

“This has happened to basically every straight white comedian I know,” Dixon stated, adding “Whether it’s live or TV work, everyone this happens to feels it’s wrong, though they might not admit it publicly.”

He continued “Even right-on left-wing comedians will express anger about it in private…But if you asked them to give up their place on a TV panel show for a person of colour it would be a different story.”

“I just want a meritocracy because that’s better for everyone. Where you have a meritocracy, diversity happens naturally. Look at football, for example,” Dixon explained, noting that comedy shows should be made up of “just the funniest people.”

“These cack-handed attempts at social engineering don’t help anyone. I don’t believe it is necessary to do this in comedy,” Dixon urged.

The comedian has previously warned about comedy going ‘woke’, and the detrimental effects it has on the art form, claiming that the aim of woke comedy “is not to make us laugh, but to lecture us about what we should believe.

Dixon isn’t alone in lamenting the death of comedy at the hands of wokeness. Others including Rowan Atkinson, Ricky Gervais, John Cleese, Joe Rogan, Adam Carolla, Bill Burr, and Dave Chappelle have all issued similar warnings.

Cancel culture has seen some comedians self-censoring in order to appease the mob:

The ultimate irony is that leftist comedians are quick to cry ‘cancel culture’ when their own bland drivel is rejected.

Cricketing Authorities Considering Exposing Another Player For Tweets He Posted When He Was 15

Another target for the witch hunt mob.

Published

Following the international suspension of cricketer Ollie Robinson for tweets he posted when he was 18, the ECB is now considering whether to expose the identity of another player for posting “offensive” tweets when he was 15.

Yes, really.

As we previously highlighted, Robinson was “made an example of” by cricketing authorities after his teenage tweets, which largely consisted of a few “racist” words and some lads’ banter, were uncovered by offense archeologists.

Now another cricketer could be about to face cancellation

“Wisden.com chose to obscure the identity of the player, who was 15 at the of the tweet, but did include details of the post, including ‘your going out with a asian’ and three hashtags: ‘Asianthroughandthrough’, ‘hweolloo’ and ‘c****y’,” reports the Daily Mail.

Wow. Big deal.

According to the Mail, the ECB is “considering” whether to publicly name the individual, opening him up to be targeted by witch hunt mobs and forced into a groveling apology, which as it proved for Robinson, will achieve absolutely nothing.

So according to the left, “cancel culture doesn’t exist,” and yet another sports star may be about to say goodbye to his whole career for tweets he posted when he was literally a child.

Completely absurd.

England Cricketer Gets International Ban For Edgy Tweets He Posted When He Was a Teenager

But cancel culture doesn’t exist.

Published

England cricketer Ollie Robinson has now been suspended from all international matches over some edgy tweets he posted when he was a teenager in yet another foul example of cancel culture.

“England and Sussex bowler Ollie Robinson has been suspended from all international cricket pending the outcome of a disciplinary investigation following historical tweets he posted in 2012 and 2013,” reports Sky News.

The tweets originally posted by Robinson nearly a decade ago when he was 18 can be viewed below. They’re a mixture of offensive words and lads’ banter. Such rhetoric was commonplace on the platform before the world went mad from around 2015 onwards.

Secretary of State Oliver Dowden responded to the controversy by asserting that cricket authorities had gone too far.

“Ollie Robinson’s tweets were offensive and wrong,” tweeted Dowden. “They are also a decade old and written by a teenager. The teenager is now a man and has rightly apologised. The ECB has gone over the top by suspending him and should think again.”

“I don’t even care what he’s said,” remarked another respondent. “Imagine being a young cricket player, fulfilling your lifelong dream of playing for England and some neeky prick scours through your decade-old teenage tweets to find something to be offended by – and you actually get suspended. Cuck culture.”

Some people ludicrously tried to compare Robinson’s conduct to that of Shamima Begum, a British Muslim who traveled to Syria to join ISIS.

Leftists actually think that posting some edgy tweets as a teenager and joining an international terrorist organization are somewhat similar, and that people are only defending Robinson because he’s white.

In reality, as we highlight in the video below, authorities specifically wanted to “make an example” out of Robinson because he is white.

Meanwhile, leftists still absurdly argue that cancel culture doesn’t exist.
