Rape Ads.

So, I guess in Australia this ad above for CK denim is waaaaaay to racey. Australia's Advertising Standards Bureau said the following about

"...The Board considered that whilst the act depicted could be consensual, the overall impact and most likely takeout is that the scene is suggestive of violence and rape...The Board considered that the image was demeaning to women by suggesting that she is a plaything of these men. It also demeans men by implying sexualised violence against women."

Ouch. Four malnourished models in one place. They were probably trying to eat each other. Cause you know....CK jeans are tight. And you have to be skinny to fit them. Anyways....seriously, in this case...it appears that America has a thicker skin than the rest of the world. Wow. I must admit, as I get older Australia is losing its coolness...more and more.
