Offensive and homophobic?

Apparently the below graphic has attracted the attention of the Advertising Standards Authority as allegedly 'offensive and homophobic'. Judge for yourselves.

It is one thing to take all serious complains seriously. It is quite another to be unable to distinguish what are serious complaints and what are not. However, we all know what happens when the ASA has complaints from Catholics about offensive adverts. Generally speaking they go in the bin.

The ASA is a paper tiger. When this kind of double-standard gets enforced seriously, then we are going to be in trouble.


  1. One for the sidebar I think!

  2. In other news, Law Society fails to see irony in banning pro marriage conference on grounds of diversity "...contrary to our diversity policy, espousing as it does an ethos which is opposed to same-sex marriage."
