Montreal gets all puritanical
I’ll admit that I have absolutely nothing against Canada, however one has to wonder what those daft Montreal officials were thinking by banning a permit for an event launching Pamela Anderson’s most recent PETA ad campaign. In the allegedly controversial ad sexy mama Pammy poses in a bikini (yes, she actually has clothes on this time) and has her body marked off with a butcher’s diagram. The ad’s incredibly offensive and risqué (not!) caption reads… OMG are you ready for it folks? … “All animals have the same parts”. Uptight officials with clearly nothing better to do with their time deemed the ad sexist which resulted in the event having to be held in a restaurant rather than a public venue as originally planned.
When trying to justify their moronic and antiquated decision, Montreal Commissioner Josee Rochefort stated that “As you might expect, I have to inform you that we, as public officials representing a municipal government, cannot endorse this image of Ms. Anderson. It is not so much controversial as it goes against all principals public organizations are fighting for in the everlasting battle of equality between men and women”.
Seriously Montreal? The ad clearly DOES NOT read ‘All FEMALE animals have the same parts’, so please explain what the effing hell this campaign has to do with being sexist because I would really like to know you bunch of assbackward politicians! I mean come on! If trying to sensor a woman for standing up for what she believes in isn't sexist then I don't know what the heck is! ...I’m just saying…
*You get bonus points if you can tell me the name of the puritanical fanatic in the picture at the top of the post.
