Ready For Takeoff

Illustration for article titled Ready For Takeoff

Cheap Irish airline, Ryanair, has called Sweden's Trade Ethical Council against Sexism in Advertising (ERK) "old farts" and "anti-funsters" after the ERK condemned a sexist Ryanair ad featuring a scantily-clad schoolgirl. Ryanair defends its ad against sexist charges by saying it "reflects reality" and that "young women around Europe want to look their best." How image-conscious young women translates to a woman dressing up in a porn-y schoolgirl outfit to sell discounted airline tickets isn't addressed by the Ryanair representatives. However, the airline bravely states that they "defend the right of Swedish girls to take their clothes off." [UPI]
