Pamela Anderson PETA advert too sexist for Montreal

Pamela Anderson is in Montreal to host a gala event for Just for Laughs and had planned on unveiling her new PETA advert/poster as well. It turns out the city of Montreal thinks the poster is sexist and is prohibiting its going up. You can judge for yourself (above), but it all begs the question on who decides what is appropriate and how they decide what is and isn’t in our public sphere. It seems that when it’s a poster for selling phones, lingerie, shoes, or beer, apparently scantily clad women get the green light. When it’s a poster promoting People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, it’s just dirty and wrong. Thoughts?
