Blue Pill ExampleProtein World advert: Formal investigation launched into 'beach body ready' campaign, all advertising ceased. (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by [deleted]

Women are so fragile that they can't even look at a photo.

A formal investigation has been launched into an advertisement for Protein World after a campaign asking viewers if they were "beach body ready".

The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) confirmed it had launched an investigation to establish whether the advert breaks harm and offense rules or is socially irresponsible.

The advert has also been banned from appearing again in its current form.

The ASA said: "We've met with Protein World to discuss its "Are you beach body ready?" ad campaign.

"It's coming down in the next three days and, due to our concerns about a range of health and weight loss claims made in the ad, it can't appear again in its current form.

"Although the ad won't appear in the meantime, we've launched an investigation to establish if it breaks harm and offence rules or is socially irresponsible.

"We will now carefully and objectively explore the complaints that have prompted concerns around body confidence and promptly publish our findings."

A mass demonstration in Hyde Park, London, was planned against the advert over claims that it was "body-shaming" and that it "aimed to make [individuals] feel physically inferior to the unrealistic image of the bronzed model".

A Change.org petition campaigning for the removal of the advert reached almost 50,000 signatures within just a few days and attracted condemnation from high profile figures such as TV presenter Susannah Reid.

Beat, the charity that supports people with eating disorders, criticised the campaign, calling it "one more example of how we are subjected daily to what we are expected to accept and aspire to as the 'body ideal"'.

Protein World’s chief executive, Arjun Seth, labelled those against the advert "terrorists".

He added that the people campaigning against the ads were "extremist, they shout a lot, these people are irrational and extremist", and said that "vandalising adverts" amounted to criminal activity.

would be good to hear your story some time amigo please give some thought to it

[–]Hoodwink 82 points83 points  (16 children)

Why can they just not give a fuck?

A combination of narcissism and low/no validation. They have to build up their own self-worth by knocking others down. They have a need to climb social hierarchy and this is how they do it - like some undeveloped teenager. It's complete narcissism through and through. You'd recognize the behavior if you ever had to live with one or interact with one for an extended period of time.

[–]Senior EndorsedMattyAnon 31 points32 points  (0 children)

Exactly this. Lacking internal validation, no amount of external validation is ever enough.

[–]Squeezymypenisy 10 points11 points  (0 children)

It's why they always stay in the same situation. They never grow up, they have terrible personal relationships and they never amount to anything. They bring shame to any family name they have. They fail at something, and then instead of figuring out why they failed and doing something about it, they continue to blame someone else. But then that's typical when no one takes responsibility anymore. But then again this is England where big Nanny government wants to stop you from pulling on your John Thomas to a naked slut online.

[–]redemptionquest 8 points9 points  (1 child)

A weak body doesn't have the strength to do a pull up, but a strong mind can make a weak body a strong body.

A weak body with a weak mind still cannot do a pull up, but instead of focusing on training they will complain about everyone that can do a pull up, and tell them they're entitled or a musclehead.

I've lived with lots of adult women in my young 21 years of living. On average, they were 7-8 years older than me and it's nothing but a freak show.

The one I'm currently living with is so insecure she lives in a fantasy world. I was just shit tested last night on my comment "I'm anxious about working as a mover in the summer--" she immediately buts in 'aren't you talking about that game of thrones quote you mentioned last night?" with a big smirk on her face as if she just shut me down. I was just like, "anyway... this job's got me nervous because movers regularly see 12 hour days in the summer." she once told me biology isn't even real, after I spoke some facts about our biology. Then I put on discovery channels "going ape" series and it's like she knew her reality was going to be shattered and she just got all defensive and ran away.

I'll boil it down to this. She is crazy. First of all, she's on tons of medication for anxiety and depression. I told her I quit mine long time ago and you don't need that. She responded with "I have to take this, it's like telling a person without legs to walk." so lets break that down and look at her lifestyle habits. She is severely underweight, she's 5'4" but isn't even 100#. She smokes cigarettes and drinks vodka every night. Eats processed food daily. Never exercises. See the pattern, here? It's a recipe for depression. Her brain doesn't even function correctly.

I routinely get told by her, you think you know everything. Now I am very far from knowing everything, but I've studied TRP for close to two years. While everyone was out partying, I put in 1-8 hours every day learning the reality of which the world we live in. And when you've got scientists backing you up https://youtu.be/G43Grbgupds it's kind of hard to not know what you're talking about.

I just nod and agree nonchalantly with whatever she says because it's like my neighbors 8 year old daughters telling me I'm wrong. Women literally do not mature past that stage. Vile, repulsive creatures women are. Easy to taunt, easy to trick. Hubris.

[–]WS6Grumbles 10 points11 points  (3 children)

They don't have to grow up. Nobody's ever going to deck them for doing something stupid. Why not just do something stupid, then?

[–]foldpak111 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Very, very good point. Men never act out, because we'll get our Ass' kicked. Women can literally do whatever and people will agree with her, in hopes of getting pussy and increasing social status. But I'm cool with it, and quite proud, actually. Society views me as an adult, while women literally get the same treatment as a little kid. More benefits, sure, but they never have to grow as a person. That's why men get happier as they age and women get less happy as they age. I'm about to spend the next ten years on an oil rig, and the end result will build long term happiness and appreciation for life. I've lived like a woman before, being lazy and complaining about things, and it doesn't do anything but make you depressed, even if family members pander to you.

Ha. You're living with my ex wife. I feel sorry as fuck for you if you don't haul ass.

[–]foldpak111 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The worst part is I can not shut her down, I have to take it, because she and my dad pay the bills. But it's a great opportunity to play dumb and act like they are smarter than me. I can live here til December and save all my money working full time. I'll have close to 20k saved up by then. She wants to play that game? I'm an expert at it as well so let's go

[–]Dr_HoaxArthurWilmoth 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I have to ask, why are you living with this creature? Unless she is footing the bills or participating in some fetish you can't find regularly, it just doesn't sound healthy - for your well being.

[–]foldpak111 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Machiavellianism bro. She is paying bills, they are kicking me out in December, and i don't have to pay shit around there. I keep my mouth shut, and save all my money. When they kick me out, I'll have near 25k in savings. No worries getting started in life.

[–]Dr_HoaxArthurWilmoth 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Congrats. Just had to check in on that though. I would look around for a better job than mover, I did it one half summer - got injured, rolled an ankle on a carpeted step. Lost 2 weeks.

Injuries are a big part of the job, some guys I worked with popped pills like an NFL locker room. If they weren't high school or college, most were ex-cons - which was a good and bad situation.

If the moving company has a contract to move military or federal employees, jump on it. Have much better equipment and supplies to move stuff, and the customers are leaps and bounds better.

I opted for a liquor store summer job when I got better at the beach rolling kegs. Same gains as the moving job, more flat surfaces and steady hours, $1.50 less an hour. Better contacts for parties too.

[–]TRP VanguardCyralea 73 points74 points  (9 children)

Because you can't put on muscle so you accept it.

They can, but they're too lazy. Reminding them makes them feel bad, so rather than fix themselves they seek to remove the source of their negative feelings.

[–][deleted] 12 points13 points  (6 children)

Nail on the fucking head. It is enabling of shit lifestyles and all that they lead to, physically.

These cunts CAN get bodies like the one in the advert. Any human can. You just have to exercise as hard as fuck all the time and eat extremely well. Like you should be anyway. These fat twats can't get their heads around that though and like you say, try to remove anything that highlights how fucking disgusting they are.

[–]NikoMyshkin 6 points7 points  (5 children)

Like you should be anyway.

all they are doing is denying the single best possible course of action for themselves

like Kant said: "immaturity is that state in which an individual cannot use whatever intelligence is theirs, for their own best benefit, without an external, benevolent guiding force".

these people not only lack such a benevolent guide - they actively attack anything that seeks to motivate them to better themsleves.

it's so sad really, that the freedom these people enjoy to self-actualise their maximum hapiness and fulfillment is being pissed away by a steadfast refusal to accept the reality that progress is often painful and requires genuine effort, introspsection and absolutely necessitates pushing yourself out of your comfort zone.

[–]coffee_and_lumber 2 points3 points  (3 children)

I have to wonder if one of these hamdragons actually got her shit together, hit the gym and upgraded herself to an HB7 or 8, and then, suddenly awash in high quality male interest, would she still be such a raging feminist?

Just wondering, because I've almost never seen someone claiming to be a "womyn" or "feminist" who wasn't goddamned unfortunate looking/acting.

[–]NikoMyshkin 1 point2 points  (2 children)

if one of them suddenly started commanding masculine attention then I'm guessing that the masculine attention would be far more satisfying. as would the knowledge that SHE ISNT ACCELERATING THE AGING AND EVENTUAL DEMISE OF HER BODY THROUGH BEING MORBIDLY OBESE.

EDIT: (sorry for the caps, anger not directed at you)

[–]bitches_be_crazy86 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's intrasexual competition. Attractive bitches are more attractive than ugly bitches. It's fucking normal.

Them ugly bitches are butthurt because such ads make them realize that they are shit.

[–]Senior EndorsedMattyAnon 36 points37 points  (2 children)

Because you're a man.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I have scoliosis, which has greatly affected my hips. It's not apparent in my posture, but I've never found it easy to run (and never could understand how others manage it for such long periods of time.) The pain is constant. I'm not a man, but I still love feeling my heart race and muscles ache, being outside, and I'm rarely in a bad mood.

Then some women are cunts, and it's all because they don't have the nerve for that mindset, or the drive to simply lose weight, despite a lack of health problems otherwise. That's actually just people. Some people are gutless.

[–]sedatedinsomniac 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Not giving a fuck requires acknowledging that others have different opinions, make different decisions, and have a right to live for themselves and nit for some pet cause. This is anathema to SJWs.

[–]Endorsed ContributorNiftyDolphin 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Why can they just not give a fuck?

Because, unlike you, they are social justice warriors.

[–]foldpak111 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]human_bean_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They want power and this is one of the ways to get it. Power over betas.

[–]BlackHeart89 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They want to be proud of being lazy fucks when it comes to their physique. Its rather difficult to do with advertisements that promote being physically fit.

[–][deleted] 296 points297 points  (77 children)

The SJW hate machine is fucking monstrous. If they can't shame their enemies into defeat, if they can't doxx and ruin someone's life, they'll go on a full out legal assault.

I don't mind bigoted, stupid people existing, but there are going to be serious ramifications if SJW-culture continues gaining a foothold in various societies.

[–]TRP VanguardHumanSockPuppet 192 points193 points  (9 children)

SJW culture isn't gaining a foothold, it's already the mainstream perspective.

Watch television. Watch The View, or any major syndicated news network for a few days, or just a couple of hours of commercials. Count all of the portrayals of incompetent fathers and stupid men you see. Compare that to the number of unfavourable portrayals of women that you see.

Watch politics. Count the number of times women's issues are brought up, and notice how all the talking heads line up to offer their condolences. Compare this to the number of times men's issues are brought up.

The ramifications you're talking about are already happening. Men have been checking out of society by the thousands ever since:

  • The media's main message to us became "You are meant to be laughed at, not respected."
  • The government's main message to us became "You are meant to be taxed, not incentivized."
  • Women's main message to us became "You are here to please us, not to negotiate with us. We owe you nothing."

After all that neglect and abuse, more and more men are going on strike. We're responding to these injustices in-kind by:

  • Giving up our pursuits of higher-paying careers and only working as hard as we have to in order to support ourselves.
  • Saying no to marriage, and either letting our offspring spawn out of wedlock or letting birthrates plummet altogether.
  • Giving up on mutually-supportive relationships, and instead training ourselves to be manipulative sociopaths so we can have all the sex we want and none of the thankless effort of rearing a woman-child.

You're seeing the effects of our mass exodus everywhere. We're simply not in the mainstream yet. There are still just enough Sleeping Blue Pillers toiling away to keep the Entitlement Machine marching along.

But even the meekest horse will kick back in instinctive self-defense if you beat it too much.

Your place is all this (now that you've awoken) is to fight for what's yours and ONLY what's yours. Carve yourself off a big piece of cake, never mind how many guests are standing behind you waiting for theirs. Revel in your debauchery, your selfishness, your freedom from unappreciated servitude.

And remember that none of this is your fault. You are just a man - you need appreciation, and love, and payment to muster the strength and motivation to fight for the survival and prosperity of your society - and your society has failed to give it. The universe is more than formidable, so you don't need to make extra enemies out of women or the government.

Just stop fighting FOR them. Let them take on the universe for a few rounds and realize that, without you, they're completely outclassed. YOU are the pillar that holds the roof above their heads. It was their decision to kick you down, so let them be the soft cushion at the end of your free fall.

You owe allegiance to nothing except your principles and the people who show their love for you.

[–]wtelwtel 7 points8 points  (4 children)

I feel as men we need to work together, harness our inner RP jerks, take over the the most important institutions for propaganda (media, entertainment, finance, government) and 'fix' things.

That's basically what feminists and pro-gay activists did (but that's only because a generation of men, possibly out of nothing more than what was considered good will at the time, allowed them to). And really, anything they can do, we can do far better.

Bring back a legion of mad men.

[–]TRP VanguardHumanSockPuppet 9 points10 points  (3 children)

I feel as men we need to work together, harness our inner RP jerks, take over the the most important institutions for propaganda (media, entertainment, finance, government) and 'fix' things.

That would be nice. But the question is, how do we motivate men to band together and accomplish this?

See, people are motivated by self-interest first and foremost. There is so much money and political clout to be earned from jumping on the "Save Women" bandwagon that no sensible gladiator of the public arena dares speak against it. They'd be flayed alive in seconds if they did.

So everyone trumpets the same tired bullshit, and the myth of female hypoagency continues unabated.

This trend will only reverse itself if someone can come up with a way to introduce male issues into the discussion that both makes them money/political clout AND which doesn't result in career suicide.

Honestly, I don't think there is such a way. We're smart, and there's plenty of us. If such a strategy existed, I'm sure one of us would have discovered and implemented it by now.

No, our only recourse is to do what we're doing now - continue to opt out of their game in favour of playing our own.

We're going to drink our beer, play our video games, ride our motorcycles, lift our weights, and work only as hard as we need to in order to please ourselves. Everyone else can fuck off to build their own aqueducts and bridges and computers.

Eventually, those beggars in the crumbling world will HAVE to come to us with respect and deference instead of self-righteous sermons and banal admonitions. They'll come to us with money, and gifts, and a quiet respect for all of our hard-earned skills which they took for granted.

There is.

This is a bubble. Sooner or later, it will burst. Someone will say "We're sick of this bullshit", and millions and millions of marginalized white heterosexual men will say "Yeah", in unison.

But the thing about bubbles is that you can't make them burst, and you can't predict when they will. You just know that it's going to happen.

That means we can't buy in (because the bubble is going to burst), but we also can't sell short (because we don't know when it will burst, and it's going to keep inflating until it does). So the move is to stay out.

As you say:

Eventually, those beggars in the crumbling world will HAVE to come to us with respect and deference instead of self-righteous sermons and banal admonitions. They'll come to us with money, and gifts, and a quiet respect for all of our hard-earned skills which they took for granted.

The only question is whether there will be anything left by the time this happens.

True. There could eventually come a point when enough men are sufficiently fed-up that each man's frustration will outweigh his fear of social retaliation for expressing unpopular ideas. Such an event would be fun to watch...perhaps from a safe distance, with your money saved in a foreign bank.

For now all we can do now is watch as the carnival rides start shutting down one by one, and guess at when the whole thing will finally go dark.

[–]SpawnQuixote 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Just want to add that because women believe that everything on tv is true it shapes their mind. Source: Women use fictional examples as real all the time.

[–]TRP VanguardCyralea 45 points46 points  (30 children)

This is why I haven't been able to be indifferent to Feminism. It's one thing if it's just a few landwhales making moronic comments on Tumblr. It's another thing entirely once they get into your government and start dictating social behaviour and policy. They're already in control of workplace policy.

They have very real power to ruin your life if you aren't careful.

[–]cant_quit 87 points87 points [recovered]

It was great to see someone not back down though. I cant think of another example of a company that gave no fucks at all. And apparently they made a serious amount of money from all the free publicity.

I half think that the more often the retards make a big deal out of ridiculous trivia, the more they expose what it is they are actually like, the more likely it is that ordinary society will realise they need to be excised.

[–]farbenwvnder 159 points159 points [recovered]

The same company should put up a similar ad with a fat woman instead and the text "Are you beached body ready"

[–]BlackHeart89 34 points35 points  (0 children)

Nah. The best way to do would be to put the average overweight chick on their who is about 23 to 34 on there.

It would be giving them exactly what they asked for while at the same time, making them ashamed to be who they are.

[–][deleted] 26 points27 points  (1 child)

Or avoid the clear baiting with 'beached' and have the same ad- 'Are you beach body ready?' with a soft body standing there looking unhealthy and out of shape. With all of this controversy, it'd drive their point home

[–]peoplearejustpeople9 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Or a line of people from unhealthy to healthy. Then ask "Where are you, on the beach body scale?"

[–]FattestRabbit 17 points18 points  (2 children)

Serious question: is there anything stopping them from doing this? Why not just keep making crazy ads that attract a lot of attention from outraged fatties (who aren't their customers anyway)? Seems like it was a killer move.

[–]anonlymouse 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Serious question: is there anything stopping them from doing this?

No pay off from it. They've already gained a lot of brand loyalty from their response as is, given no other company is standing up to SJWs like this (maybe Stardock), they can't really increase their popularity among a certain demographic.

They'll still get some ROI from running ads elsewhere in the world, but doing another run in London would be pointless.

[–]FattestRabbit 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Oh, I see. I didn't realize the ads were just in London. Yeah, I'd love to see more of their ads. I'm gonna buy a t-shirt from them and my protein from them for sure.

[–]BlackHeart89 7 points8 points  (6 children)

Then the same SJW bitches will complain about the scene being unsightly or the company making a mockery of those who suffer from the worse "disease" possible... Obesity.

I would love to see that.

[–]anonlymouse 6 points7 points  (0 children)

They're just going to run the same ad in New York. SJWs will spill their spaghetti over it and they'll get a shit ton of free viral marketing again.

It's unrealistic because it means you actually have to put in effort in going to the gym (or like.. walking, even) and eating healthy. Aint no body got time for dat, they're all too busy fitshaming (how is that even allowed to be a thing by the way?) people who don't give a shit about their opinion on Tumblr.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

To be honest all the women in the ads ive seen dont look like they spend all that much time in the gym. They simply aren't fat as fuck. Which is the real issue here. People are unable and unwilling to put down the fork and or make logical and healthy food choices. Fuck these fat fucks. Male and female.

[–]NikoMyshkin 3 points4 points  (1 child)


When, as a society, did we stop celebrating people's successes as something that we should all collectively aspire to?

I know it's easier to just censor anyone's acheivements so we don't have to feel that we should put more effort in but isn't the whole point of a life well lived that we should strive to continually better ourselves?

How the hell did we end up in situation where acheivement is shamed? this is the opposite of an healthy attitude?

Should we ban gyms next? Universities? How about banning police because they make criminlas feel bad?

[–]_eskimo_brothers_ 7 points8 points  (0 children)

You know what is funny and ironic?

The massive company that brought you all of those fitness DVDs like P90x and Insanity, and infomercial star trainers like Tony Horton and Shaun T, is called Beach Body. They sell their own items too, I know everyone has heard of the company. "The corporate mission is to help people achieve their goals and enjoy healthy, fulfilling lives." It's been used in their marketing - people who purchase Beach Body products are looking to have their own "Beach Body" ready by summer and look good... on the beach. Their marketing would never be as bold as Protein World, but I'd love to see them actually make a point that being "Beach Body Ready" is being healthy.

If a man calls them out on this shit, it goes nowhere really in the face of illogical women who want to be the center of attention because they no longer, or never have been the center of attention... because they are unhealthy. Anywhere these women are destroying corporate marketing materials a few women in incredible shape should show up, and strip down to bikinis. Then with their own banners say, YES, you can look like this, but not if you spend time wasting away being upset you're unhealthy.

Oh and we have your photo now, here is a subpoena to show up to court and pay $2500 for what you've done, if you don't show up, we'll sue you for three times that, and the city of blankity blank will charge you for vandalism... drop mic.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

To actually answer your question, there is a issue with the image being photoshopped or altered while making the claim of weight loss.

[–]blacwidonsfw 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It's not like they are phoshopping the fat off of her. They just smooth out the skin and play with colors and stuff. If you look up that model she will look just as thin in real life

No we won't. You think those lazy fucks will ever pay their fair share into socialized medicine schemes to offset the massive expenditures of fat-related problems, not to mention lower productivity and shorter lifespans so they pay way way less and spend way way more--of THIN PEOPLES' TAX DOLLARS.

[–]TRP VanguardCyralea 31 points32 points  (2 children)

There are sadly no rules discriminating against fat people receiving organ donations either. Some tub of lard who needs a replacement organ is wasting that precious gift that could have gone to someone who won't need followup surgery in a year.

It's absolutely maddening how much we coddle these lazy fucks.

It would be nice if you could set criteria for who gets your organs. I take care of mine and I'd like them to go to a home that respects them like I do.

[–]WS6Grumbles 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Thought: Increased access to healthcare = increased access to dietary and fitness education. These are actually the first programs to show up usually. So while TRP is all about fuck-everybody-else social healthcare may show a net improvement, and subsequently coerce some of the blue pills TRP is so fond of to take better care of themselves.

Sauce: former BP a dietary education course convinced not to eat fast foods.

[–]Endorsed ContributorFLFTW16 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Public schools usually have some sort of health class, a home economics class where you learn how to cook healthy foods, and usually a gym teacher will teach you how to exercise and talk about the dangers of smoking or fast food. Then you have DARE-like programs done by local police departments about the dangers of drug and alcohol use.

All the money is already being spent and the programs are already in place to show people the basics in how to live a good life, exercise, cook food, sexual education, stay away from drugs.

The liberal mindset is always to expand social programs, no matter what. No matter how much money is poured down the drain we still have a society of lazy fat fucks with 1/3 of adults having an STD, and a large percentage of people addicted to this or that drug.

All the money in the world won't do shit. What's needed is cultural changes, like shaming fat fucks, shaming sluts from riding the CC, and cutting drug addicts off from welfare. In some countries they just lock you up for 20 years after the first offense, or just execute you. Do you think Saudi Arabia has a heroin epidemic? Nope.

Liberals are fuckwits and they waste other peoples' money on social programs that fail. The answer is NOT more social programs, like free healthcare. A few fatties will use free healthcare to actually get healthy, the VAST majority will just stay fat and drain the system dry.

[–]franklinzunge 38 points39 points  (1 child)

But the craziest thing is that this ASA group is , "carefully and objectively explore the complaints that have prompted concerns around body confidence and promptly publish our findings." It shows how fucked society is because to give them the time of day at all is validating them.

It makes no sense at all. All advertising can be criticized the exact same way. This luxurious car is making me "feel shame" that I am not rich. There is nothing I can possibly do to gain wealth, just like there is nothing I could possibly do to not be an obese whale. To suggest that I am not good enough to have a Mercedes just because I am broke and jobless is really psychologically damaging and should be outlawed.

[–][deleted] 13 points14 points  (0 children)

This is the very nature of advertising. Adverts try to create a temporary anxiety curable by purchasing a product. The fact that the ASA has bought into SJW propaganda is both hilarious and scary.

Also Roosh was on Dr. Oz yesterday?! awesome

Edit: Dr. Oz is super BP and a tool. I also love how every time they say something about fat people it pans to a fat chick looking upset in the audience.


Also this portion is particularly interesting and hilarious: http://www.doctoroz.com/episode/dr-oz-faces-notorious-online-fat-shamer-bullying-women-all-over-world?video_id=4201767404001

Her whole thing was "you don't know me! you don't know what I do!"

Telling. She acts like his attitude is a personal affront to her. She frames the issue from only her viewpoint. (Of course.) Nobody cares what effort you are putting in, or how much you are failing. It only matters if you succeed. (Is it any different for men?) If you're fat despite ALL of your best efforts, it isn't now incumbent upon men to understand and overlook that because boohoo you tried so hard!!

The point is that you are not what men want, period. If you want to change that, then shut the fuck up and get to work, don't sit there making excuses. Lady, you know Roosh is correct, you just can't help but hamster away how it makes you feel.

They are obliged to take it down pending investigation. However, I don't recall the posters making any actual factual claims (ie. You can lose 5kgs in 1 week), so I hardly see how they can uphold it. In any case, yet more free publicity for the company. Well done SJWs! Goes to show if you're target market aren't pussies then riling them up is very cheap marketing

Yeah, I bet they never dreamed they'd get this much mileage out of those ads.

I can't find any high res images of the ads, but some of them do look like they have some specific claims about weight loss. You can just barely make out something in the black text bubble on the right ("Lost 20lbs in ..."?)

Hopefully they'll remove all that stuff and just plaster the plain beach body ones everywhere. The outrage would be priceless.

[–]Christian_Kong 1 point2 points  (1 child)

The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) confirmed it had launched an investigation to establish whether the advert breaks harm and offense rules or is socially irresponsible.

It's not cause of false claims, it's because some people are offended that there is a fitness model on a poster.

[–]iliketurdles123 10 points10 points [recovered]

This commercial is no different from the other female-oriented beauty commercials, least of all in the choice of an attractive female as its centerpiece, except that it implies that you have to make an effort to get a good looking body, not simply buy a product that implies a fantasy of your inner beauty magically revealing itself through its consumption. It's become hated because it doesn't target the female hamster, but rather personal responsibility independent of gender.

[–]NikoMyshkin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Action falls within this subsection if it— (a)involves serious violence against a person, (b)involves serious damage to property, (c)endangers a person’s life, other than that of the person committing the action, (d)creates a serious risk to the health or safety of the public or a section of the public, or (e)is designed seriously to interfere with or seriously to disrupt an electronic system.


(1)In this Act “terrorism” means the use or threat of action where— (a)the action falls within subsection (2),

See above

(b)the use or threat is designed to influence the government [F1or an international governmental organisation]F1 or to intimidate the public or a section of the public, and (c)the use or threat is made for the purpose of advancing a political, religious [F2, racial]F2 or ideological cause.

Even without the threat to burn down their offices and the bomb threat it's still terrorism per UK law.

I missed your reply, I said something somewhat similar. When someone vandalizes something, of corporate property or anything really those people should be hauled off to jail. If a teenage boy spray paints anything, and hangs around, and it's rather easy to tell he did it... this shouldn't be a discussion in my opinion. If he's over 18, he is fined and sometimes much more.

Systematic rape of 1400 children in Rotherham, covered up by both the local police force, the media, and the Labour council: british feminists are silent as perpetrators were not white males, but muslim pakistani immigrants. Feminists actively shut down and seek to destroy the career of anyone who speaks out; claiming that they are islamophobic and racist.

Picture of fitness model with 'beach body ready?' written next to it; something which is actually already on the cover of about 50% of women's magazines: outrage. Mass (heh) protests in Hyde park. change.org petition goes viral. Front page news on national papers.

The press tore him apart for his racism, he was a national hate figure. The only man with courage to speak out.

BBC, Guardian, all of those places, claim that there was no way of knowing that the rapes were happening until the 2013/2014 report. The labour councillors did not face consquences except having to move departments.

Thousands of children raped, and the left shrugs its shoulders and looks away.

In today's world, you can't look hot because it makes less hot people feel bad.

You can't say "rape" without warning people first, because someone who was raped, previously regretted consensual sex, or just someone who hears a lot about rape and is scared might be triggered and get all uncomfortable.

You can't dump a spiteful bitch. You have to communicate about you feelings until she's sick of your whining and dumps you.

And you can't ever try to have sex. Or express an idea on the internet. Or in general.

Women said so.

[–]RedPillMoves 2 points3 points  (3 children)

I hardly ever post here, but I just can't hold back on this one.

Is "body ideal" not synonymous with "healthy body" in this case? The models aren't looking juiced/artificially enhanced, etc, nor is the ad promoting any sort of artificial augmentation or the like. What's the fem/SJW stance on being healthy and working toward your best self?

It's insulting for these people to put themselves on the same level of "health" as someone who (almost literally) dedicates every waking hour to fighting off urges for sugar, junk food, staying home from the gym, sleeping in, wasting time, etc. It's offensive to the people who exercise - muscle and will power - to be lumped in with these people who are so obviously lazy, glutinous and don't care at all about their outward appearance.

Where is the outrage from the fitness community? Where is the "you are not healthy, stop calling yourself that" commentary from our side? Where is the organized campaign against the misuse of "healthy"? I'll tell you where:

Corporate ladders, the weight room, in bed early on a week night, buried in leisure reading, preparing for the next big life step.

Unbelievable, on so many levels, that these folks aren't able to see the glaring irony in their campaign.

The reason those of us in the fitness community aren't raising hell is because we know the truth. We know that that type of body is attainable for females with dedication and hard work. We know that these people are just lazy pieces of shit that watch Dr. Oz and think they are "beautiful the way they are".

On top of that if you ever criticize a fattie for their weight they will list all sorts of bull shit as to why they are fat or how healthy they are. Apparently all of them go to the doctor five times a week and eat nothing but leans meats and vegetables. It's bull shit. They rationalize their shit so much. They almost always say that they are healthy on the inside and that the are carb free, gluten free, fat free, etc. when we all know they are full of shit.

This pervades all aspects of modern society. When the police talk with you they will say "There was a complaint".

It's always these women who wants society to change to suit their lifestyles instead of them trying. Now we have songs insulting "skinny bitches". Mocking people who are in shape.

Further reinforcing that responsibility and logic are traits of an age passed. This now sets a precedent (if it didn't exist before) that if an advertisement hurts your feelings, LEGAL action can and will be taken against you.

I remember a shift in my childhood probably around middle school. When we were younger, we would always chant "sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me" when a girl called you stupid or a boy called you weak. Saying that absolved zero fucks and you went right back out into the back yard or school yard and had the time of your life. Now? Deity fucking forbid you make the wrong EYE contact, let alone SAY something without any kind of physical interaction or altercation and you can be thrown behind bars or sued for absolutely no reason other than someone had their feelings hurt.

Let's face it, RP aint the type to gather in the town square and holler for some bs. However, if there is something to get behind that also supports RP in the outside world, I certainly wouldn't mind if Arjun had some of my hard-earned $$ in his pocket.

Now would be a good time for Protein World to have a sale.

you'd think they were Germans who spoke against the Nazi's in 1940.

Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep, If I die before I wake, I pray the lord my soul to take... to a place where people like these are dead.

the bronzed model look is indeed kind of hard to get for pink-pale british islanders.

[–]boredguy93 0 points1 point  (0 children)

the problem is if a SJW or extremist feminist is at the head or influential position at the ASA. hot models in advertising will be a thing of the past.

criticised the campaign, calling it: one more example of how we are subjected daily to what we are expected to accept and aspire to as the 'body ideal'

ie: Stop telling us the truth! No more truth! How dare you subject us to our biological realities! Attack the competition and bring it down!

Eating disorders and being upset about this form of advertising stem from low self esteem which stems from inaction. The fix is to live your fucking lives, women. Do something awesome. Be something awesome. Not ripping down adverts featuring hotties that you can't be bothered to work to look like.

So here we have a product being advertised. A person in the advertisement who is supposed to represent someone who has used the product to its fullest potential.

I want to see a McDonalds billboard with obese people using fast food to its full potential. The thin people on those billboards are "not realistic".

I'm not even going to sit here and pretend that for some people obesity can't be a sensitive subject. I'll even acknowledge that I feel bad for people who feel downtrodden when they see images of people who look healthier than them. But I would be lying if I said I wasn't afraid for the future of our society. The victim mentality bothers me and I am struggling to make sense of it without letting anger get in the way.

Jesus. Let's never be truthful, let's never say that someone needs to improve...why do women feel they have to assimilate everyone with the "You're perfect just the way you are" bullshit. No, you're not. You're 5'6", 240. You NEED to lose weight, because the vast majority of MEN think you're a pig. Why would we want to spend 1 second with someone who can't bother to take care of themselves?

It's like they're the Borg.

The comments down below say "why can't they not give a fuck?".

Because when everyone is fat/a slob/ugly, then no-one is fat/a slob/ugly.

What's next, gonna stop people from working out because seeing another fit body in real life is triggering or makes them feel inferior?

Every time I read something like this I am always surprised that it can go this far at the same time as not being surprised in the slightest

What the fuck is the Advertising Standard Authority? Is that really a thing?

Do you guys don't have freedom of speech in England????

As horrible as this may sound, this incident is probably going to bring more customers to them. I take solace in that.

I cant beleive it got to this point.

How will this "formal investigation" work? Yes we have concluded that the signs exist.

[–]LUClEN 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I can't imagine anyone ruling against the advert. There are far worse adds out there.

Outrageous that the Protein World CEO hasn't been charged with numerous thought crimes yet. He obviously doesn't have any appreciation for the land whale female form.

[–]NLWoody 0 points1 point  (0 children)

WTF.... the world is so fucking retarded

[–]animalpoo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If marketers are smart they'd seize this opportunity. You've got your target group all in one space. That is you've got a bunch of unhappy land whales flopping about in Hyde park.

Go down there and sell them their much needed solution to remove their unhappiness. Which is to lose weight.
