A New Frontier in Anti-women Advertising…

So there I was, shopping at my local TESCOs with my friend Jess, toddling along the drinks aisle searching for the cheapest source of caffeine to get me through the hardships of university coursework and exams when SUDDENLY: A WILD MISOGYNIST ATTACKS!

Suddenly, staring me in the face among the Red Bull and Gatorade was a pretty white can cheekily named ‘P***y’. Assuming that a can bearing derogatory slurs for sexual body parts (and by far, the most recognisable, thanks to heteronormative porn) is too far even for advertisers, and possibly illegal, I pick up the can in disbelief.
