I wonder if female drivers will refuse to drive buses with this slogan on the side. Isn't that what happened with that Atheist campaign.

Does the magazine have advertisments?

One man, infamously, refused to drive his bus during the atheist campaign. An inane response highlighting his inadequate intellect.

The slogan is absurdly over-generalised. It would be better as something like: Bad mothers make bad mothers.

Am saddened more women don't choose (where there is viable choice) to stay at home and raise their children. I think society is suffering. But that's not the point.

I saw this ad on the side of a building last night and jsut stood there lookingat it with my jaw dropped.


It doesn't show that outdoor advertising works, it just shows that controversial advertising works.

Who would pay for that, MrsCrocoduck? Who is raising these children then?

As long as there's another bus with "all ad agencies are full of overpaid wankers overcharging for recycled ideas" for every bus with the working women slogan, I'll be happy. Only fuel for discussion after all...

Maybe there's a bus somewhere which says "Career men make bad fathers" .

Of all the controversial thought provoking statements they could have chosen, this one is rather boring and predictable isn't it?

It's a bit Daily Mail

Or "Cheats and Liars make bad partners"

"Am saddened more women don't choose (where there is viable choice) to stay at home and raise their children. I think society is suffering"

(a) why should they choose to stay at home because it is financially viable, when their children are well taken care of and loved dearly

(b) why is it "women", aren't children created by 2 parents - is it so much more acceptable for the father to "abandon" his children for work!!!!

rainbowinthesky my point was 'where there is viable choice'. By 'viable' I mean financially. So someone paying for it is not the point. I'm sorry i don't understand your second question.

comeoveneer i concede that working women's children are 'taken care of', but 'loved dearly'? By strangers?

Surely it's in breach of some code, sex discrimination act? It's as bad as saying asians make bad doctors, or Americans make bad presidents or some other lame and tired old adage.

What a disgrace.

In direct response to the poster's sentiment I would probably say 'how do you know career women make bad mothers, they're never around'.

Just a thought.

The one on the side of a building today felt like a kick in the stomach. So I am being a decent role model and crying blood seat and tears for my girl is bad. I don't know what else I can do....

Of course they're going to get a reaction writing something nasty about mothers. Mothers feel 'the guilt' whatever they do and this chump knows that.

mrscrocoduck what is a career woman in your opinion?

Some 80s stereotype with shoulder pads and a mobile the size of a brick with two nannies?

It is possible to work and still spend a lot of time with your child, you know.
