Is This Disrespectful to Women?

February 27, 2007 / Posted by:

topmodel.jpg America’s Next Top Model 8 debuts tomorrow night on The CW and it’s already creating buzz. Negative buzz. Residents of Santa Monica, CA demanded that ads featuring the contestants in bathing suits be removed from city buses, because they believed it was degrading to women. Does Daryl Hannah live in SM? The city’s transit director said, “It’s a matter of public taste. We try to be sensitive to the community. Protests came from people concerned that the city was somehow endorsing a show that may objectify women. We wouldn’t want to do anything that would disrespect women.” The only thing disrespectful about that ad is Tyra Banks’ FAT ASS! She said it not me. I mean don’t women walking around in bathing suits all over Santa Monica? People need to chill! Source
