Stricken by Sight of a Condom, Mom Gets AIDS Billboard Taken Down | Adweek
"Uptight parents getting weirded out by billboards is nothing new. But Van Nuys, Calif., resident Eve Ragsdale got an AIDS prevention ad torn down because she didn't want to explain what a condom was to her 6-year-old triplets. In fact, the idea of it made her so uncomfortable that she complained to the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, which sponsored the ad, and the advertising company that owns the billboard. She couldn't just answer awkward questions with "I'll tell you when you're older" or something? I mean, they live in the porno capital of the U.S. If stuff like this is enough to freak her out, they should move." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
Hey, but those billboards saying that girls/women should weigh their worth only by how physically appealing they are to men? Totally okay. - Spidra Webster
