Must not say fat women don't look sexy



A private taxi firm's advert featuring a middle aged overweight woman with the caption 'if I start to look sexy, book a taxi' has been slammed as sexist.

West Quay Cars in Southampton said they had put up the controversial poster as part of their festive campaign to stop people drinking and driving and to take a cab instead.

But feminist campaigners said the advert, which features the voluptuous lady in a suggestive pose next to the warning 'don't make bad decisions because you have had one too many' was sexist and are urging a boycott of the company.

One campaigner, who wished to remain unnamed, said: 'I was horrified to see the recent posters by West Quay cars which featured a middle-aged larger woman with a slogan on it. 'It is disgusting that in 2015 sexism is still alive, people shouldn't be making a profit over negative self-body image.'

But bosses at West Quay Cars - who designed the posters themselves - said they were disappointed with the negative feedback and denied the company is sexist.

As long as men have eyes attached to the same brains as their arousal centers, we will still have "sexism." Sorry, feministas, that's biology!

Some bitch was "horrified".
Political correctness is completely out of control.

The cab company could have avoided this by having a matching one with an ugly guy that says "If I start to look handsome".

I wonder how much business the company would actually lose compared to the gain from a cheeky add.

They did, and no one complained. Funny that.

Stinky,

So they did, then their answer should have been as rude as the suggestion they were sexist:

"Shut your pie hole, noxious noises are escaping and making you sound ridiculous" -- That would be an appropriate rejoinder.

Typical leftist, must not mention reality.

Stinky,

That is called selective outrage. Its the mating call of the liberal progressive.

The other mating call often heard is "I'm offended!"

I'll bet those complaining look like lady in the the poster. I think the ad is witty and on the money. I hope the company doesn't give in to the sniveling whiners.

I'm female. I laughed before I read the text then realized some feminazi probably got her panties in a twist of this. Sure enough.

To the "horrified" women: Get a life. There's plenty in this world to be horrified about. This isn't one of those things.

Yes, it says a lot that the "horrified" woman/women were seemingly quite indifferent to the corresponding depiction of the unattractive male image.
