So the other week I went to the Cinema to watch the Inbetweeners movie.
Upon going into the toilet to strain my bladder, I looked up and to my surprise and bemusement, this greeted my eyes.
I was pretty pissed off, and although I'll never beat the shit out of a woman unless they try to kill me. Yes, kill me (but I doubt that will ever happen unless it was a Hitwoman), why must these adverts make the guys out to be the bad guy? Sure I've been implied to be a bit of a control freak at times, but this was just mental. Maybe I'm missing the amount of abuse going on here as I live in my own little bubble, but this advert drive came out of the blue. A Home Office (Govt branch - look at the bottom right of the adverts) drive has been put on to stop this apparent wave of abuse on females in relationships.
Now I am playing Devils Advocate here, I know, but if someone were to lash out at a woman, there must have been a reason for it. A girl I know who is very close to me was given a black eye form her then boyfriend, and when I asked "what the fuck happened?" she laughed it off and said "well I threw the first punch".
So I'm not saying anyone is to blame here, but why the hell do these adverts make out that all guys are lying, abusive scumbags? I'm sure women have their downsides as people I'm sure will tell you.
In fact I was so pissed off I decided to pose in front of the bigger advert (one of about 8 plastered over the Cinema) mush to the annoyance of a bunch of Alpha Male meat-heads and Jersey Shore lookalike girls.
So &T, what's your input?
