Gingas are the new poofs

There seems to be a movement, in the UK at least, not unlike the gay rights movement to speak up for the mutants known as Gingas. Just yesterday Tesco got ticked off for a very fuinny Christmas Card and now today a beauty contest has got a ticking off as well.

An ad for a UK TV dating show has been banned for suggesting that redheads are unattractive, Britain’s advertising watchdog said.

Virgin Media’s newspaper advert for the program Dating in the Dark included the text: “How do you spot a ginger in the dark?”

Virgin said the premise of the show was to challenge people’s perception of attractiveness and to encourage decisions based on personality as well as looks.

However the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) agreed with three complainants that the ad was likely to cause serious offence and should not be used again.

“We considered the text was likely to be interpreted … as a statement that reflected a choice between looks and personality … being a suggestion that people with ginger hair were unattractive,” the ASA said in a statement.

“We considered the ad was unlikely to be interpreted to be light-hearted in tone and was instead likely to be seen as prejudicial against people with ginger hair.”

Come on every one knows Gingas are ugly, mutants and have no souls, there is currently no cure for Gingervitis. For the sake of our country I propose we make Palmerston North the place that Ginga must live. Certainly it seems that the Ginga Rights Movement has learned its tactics from the Gay Rights Movement. Gingas with their constant whining and moaning are becoming the new pooftahs. Next thing they will be wanting to have Orange Parades down Queen Street.
