Can you stand it? Lane Giant FINALLY does some ads with less-than-stick-thin women and the networks won’t run it — apparently because the women have “cleavage”.
Uh – so? Since when is cleavage a deal breaker for TV?
Networks don’t have a problem with the Victoria’s Secret ads for “the nakeds” – which the models are almost. And how about Victoria’s Secret “Pink” ads – somehow I don’t think they are talking about the color of the clothes, you know.
Networks don’t have a problem with ads about grooming a lady’s nether regions where the woman walks by small shrubbery (bushes — get it) which suddenly become better trimmed.
But cleavage — specifically FAT CLEAVAGE is a problem.
You can show everyone and anyone scampering around with just about everything showing, as long as it isn’t a fat body?
So what do you think the issue really is —- that the networks think fat bodies are ugly? Or that they are secretly disturbed to find that fat bodies can be kind of yummy? Hmmmmmm?
I hope Lane Bryant fights this and I hope lots of people let the networks know how much we appreciate them deciding they get to be the arbiters of beauty.
