Stupidity rules, ok?

No drinking and no sex

When Capital takes upon itself to regulate its contents and practices it always takes the moral high road. And it travels this road dressed in the chastity belt of barely updated Victorian sexual moral. Yes, it proclaims, women are weak and they need protection both from the men they arouse and from their own needs and desires. In advertisements for example there must be no link between women’s drinking and sex, slams the Committee of Advertising Practice in their latest effort to turn the clock back. Women are according to CAP unable to control themselves, should they spot an attractive man in a bar: “We consider that the advert is in danger of implying that the drink may bring sexual/social success, because the man in question looks quite attractive and desirable to the girls.” Oh, I see, drinking and sex are bad for women. Hands on the covers now, girls!

Without a doubt, stupidity rules Capital’s self-regulation, ok?
