i just saw one of these adverts for the millionth time and ive just noticed something; the female in the story gets lots of sympathy and made to look like a victim. whereas the male looks like his mates are about to lynch him or something.
shouldnt adverts be showing contraception is both parties responsibility?

it's just another reason why the government (or whoever makes these adverts) is so incredibly out of touch with the society they govern.

Agreed. Although in real life it would have been the other way round, the guy would have been the 'stud' and the woman the 'slut'.

Chavs are the only people who get teenagers pregnant

I don't think that's the point he's trying to make.

His point is that in the adverts, the male is made out to be the solely responsible for the use of contraception even though in real life, it's a two part affair.

That advert annoys me so much xD. There's something very depressing about it that I can't put my finger on.

thats not true. everyone can make mistakes. although if you base opinion on adverts then i can see why you would think so

the first time i saw the advert i thought it was a message about rape or something. the way it portrays the male to be forcing the girl.
why cant there be a; want respect? wear a femdom?
