Germany plans to ban sexy women and men from advertisements after the brutal sexual assaults in Cologne on New Year’s Eve.
GERMANY has announced plans to ban images of scantily-clad women in adverts in response to the sexual assaults in Cologne on New Year’s Eve.
German Justice Minister Heiko Maas said the move to ban ads which “reduce women or men to sexual objects” is an attempt to create a “modern gender image”.
The proposal, if introduced later this year, would see courts decide on what qualifies as sexist.
The plan has been called political correctness gone mad by its critics, who said it was the first step towards a “nanny state”.
It comes following a controversy over claims made by a senior politician that some schools and canteens in Germany are ‘banning’ the serving of pork to avoid offending Muslim migrants.
A mob of young Muslim men sexually assaulted and harassed hundreds of German women outside of Cologne’s busy main train station during celebrations and rioting on New Year’s Eve.
Video captured Muslim men shooting off fireworks at the cathedral and police station in the area.
Two ‘immigrant’ suspects were arrested following the attacks. The migrants were carrying a note in German and Arabic saying ‘I want to have sex with you’

The mayor of Cologne blamed the female victims for the rapes and sexual abuse and told local women to keep an arm’s length from the migrant males in the future.
