A young woman with large breasts almost all exposed. It is sexualisation and objectifying. It can damage young girls and young men who think this is normal and acceptable. It can contribute to mental illness and is not healthy for all in our society.
0287/1613 July 2016Our Watch
A bus stop advertisement depicting a young lad with the tattoo reading, "I forced her to have sex with me when she didn't want to." Confronting billboard advertisements, targeting teenagers. They depict young people with their violent actions tattooed somewhere on their bodies.
0288/1613 July 2016Tabcorp
The advertisement was about placing bets at your local TAB. It talked about accessibility made it sound like it was a normal part of the day to place a bet - and used the phrase 'everyday value' which I think was highly inappropriate given the addictive nature of gambling. It is giving the impression that there is value from gambling and that it is something you should do every day - totally irresponsible messages.
0289/1613 July 2016Ultra Tune Australia
This is in relation to two ads. I have just watched the second of two sexist ads tonight on network nine. This first ad two women in a car drive of a cliff and are rescued by Ultratune men in a helicopter - the last screen finishes with a shot of the women look up to the men in a gratuitous cleavage shot. The second ad are two women again depicting a 'dumb' stereotype accidentally getting soaked going through a car wash with the top down.
0290/1613 July 2016First National Real Estate
A street of attractive two storey houses was pictured. A group of young people with musical equipment were depicted moving into one of these houses. The voice over posed the question (as close as I can remember the actual words), "Who is looking after your property?" Then the answer was given, "At First National Real estate we put your property first."

0294/1613 July 2016Unilever Australasia
The billboard features Manu Fieldel holding a chocolate toffee magnum in front of him just below his mouth. It has had a bite taken out of it. His face has a golden sheen to it, like he's a god. The words 'for pleasure seekers' accompany the ad.
0295/1613 July 2016Bank of Western Australia Ltd (Bankwest)
A banking representative arrives at a home strewn with leftover toys, picks his way over these obstacles to the front door to be greeted by a mother holding an approximately four year old who then shoots the banking representative with a water pistol in the face.
