Ads featuring “harmful gender stereotypes” which are likely to cause offence will be banned in Britain from Friday under new rules that could have a major impact on the industry. The ban by the Advertising Standards Authority would cover, for example, a woman failing to park a car, a man struggling to change a nappy or girls being less academic than boys. The ban will not include some stereotypical scenarios that are judged not to cause as much offence in ads, such as a woman cleaning or a man doing DIY tasks.
Notice that nobody cares about our privacy being invaded in most egregious ways to tailor ads for us. No, the greatest problems with ads is that they are”harmful,” and not the way we are dispossessed of privacy to push them on us.
This is a very primitive distraction tactic.
