BART rejects ‘pussy-grabbing’ ad, sums up the state of the world today

It’s come to this, you guys.

BART has effectively edited an ad from a women’s underwear brand in ways that might not shock you (assuming that you, unlike me, are still able to be shocked). SFGate has the story.

The ads feature inverted photographs of models wearing the underwear above the Thinx logo. BART was OK with “anxiety-proof underwear” and “patriarchy-proof underwear,” and didn’t bat an eye at the trans models in two ads.

 
But BART could not abide the phrase “pussy-grabbing,” and rejected that ad as violating the agency’s policies. Spokeswoman Alicia Trost said in a statement that the display “contains words recognized by the community as vulgar, indecent or profane for display in a public setting that includes minors.”

After months (years?) of wanting this cockamamie election to be over, I am now savoring this great story and kinda don’t want the insanity to end.

If you want to check out the Thinx website, I wouldn’t want to deter or dissuade you from doing that. Not by any means.
