Broken Clocks, Twice a Day

body image ad piss take

London’s new Mayor is fulfilling his election pledge to ban adverts on public transport that promote “”unhealthy or unrealistic” body images.

His reasoning, sound reasoning, is that these images encourage feelings of low self-esteem in many girls and women and are one of the causes of eating disorders.

It also has to be said – not part of Sadiq Khan’s stated reasons for the policy – that most of these images seriously offend against standards of Christian modesty in dress, comportment and attitude.

Applause where it’s due to Sadiq Khan. Unfortunately it’s just a tiny drop in the ocean of immodest and immoral images that saturate modern towns and modern life; images that tempt, mire and desensitise souls to sin and lead to perdition. But good riddance to them anyway!
