Camper van company Wicked has had an order made to remove slogans that are deemed to be offensive to women.
Slogans such as; IF GOD WAS A WOMAN SPERM WOULD TASTE LIKE CHOCOLATE and WOMEN ARE LIKE BANKS, ONCE YOU WITHDRAW YOU LOSE INTEREST.
Wicked Campervans have a large percentage of their business to tourists/back packers and you quite often see them driving around the country. I will admit when I have seen one, if I can do so safely I will try to read what slogan is printed on it, have had quite a few giggles at some of the writings.
Members of the public have lodged complaints to have the slogans removed , one in particular said, "SAVE A WHALE, HARPOON A JAP" .
Racism is an ugly trait but are we pushing it a bit far with the other slogans. Wonder if the slogans were all about men would there be such an outcry and calls for their removal.
As a woman, I am not offended in the least by the slogans. Life does not revolve around women and their sensitivities.
