Where’s the out­rage over fra­grance ad?

Western Daily Press (Saturday) - - Wdp 2 / Opinion - Robert Read­man Bournemouth, Dorset

FEM­I­NISTS are for­ever com­plain­ing about the fact that so much advertising to­day ‘ob­jec­ti­fies’ women and de­means them.

But I don’t think I have ever seen an ad­ver­tise­ment that ob­jec­ti­fies women any­where near as much as the lat­est Paco Ra­banne ad­ver­tise­ment for its ‘Pure XS for Him’ ob­jec­ti­fies males – in which a group of women col­lapse in a heap af­ter watch­ing a young man strip.

I am not aware that there have been any cries of out­rage over it.

But then there wouldn’t be, would there?

A fine ex­am­ple of dou­ble stan­dards, n’est-ce pas?
