How WICKED..



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.

I am a woman and not offended in the slightest, infact the ones you mentioned in your blog post made me giggle.

I think women who are offended by such things, need to lighten up a bit ;o)

The only one that upsets me is the Save the whale one... the others make me smile :-)

I agree with both of you Posh and Cheire...I have a giggle but not at the whale one.

The women slogans didn't offend me either. I learned a long long time ago not to focus on negative stuff in life or in people. Makes the road a lot smoother to travel.
I agree that folks need to lighten up.
Have a good week!
