    the ban is ridiculous ...... there has been ads featuring female models that have left even less to the imagination

    this is coming too close on the heels of the Night Safari Haloween fiasco a week ago

    Well, we should not be worshiping the devil by holding any Haloween event. We should not condone evil acts by supporting a women protection group because they support some lesbian women. We should remove all ads with half naked man because it is evil.

    What next? The new Christian State of Singapore? Start burning people at the stake for heresy? goodness...

    when the lingerie ads came out, Men never asked their wives anything. they just ogled the posters. and drooled excessively. because men knew that it's difficult for their women to actually become like that unless they went for plastic surgery...

    when the suggestive posters with the men scantily clad came out... women were pestering their men to start exercising and lose weight and get a six-pack and whatever else.... because they wanted something that's (almost) impossible. so the men rioted and complained to the government to ban this ad.

    sad but true

    It seems like A&F put up the ad themself without using an ad agency ................ would it had been different if they had use a local based agency? Afterall, the local agencies were able to put up so many ads of woman showing even more skin ................ and ASAS did not say anything
    I get paid more shooting part time ...... damn, I should find more time to shoot part time

No need to censor, let people see the stupidity & the lack of creative ideas behind ads such as these which are primarily for the purpose of making money only. As to the A&F nothing obscene, there are more suggestive ads around on women actually.
