I live in Brisbane and the billboard advertising is becoming extremely unsuitable for public spaces where our children should be free to be without being bombarded with overtly adult themes. Do others have the same problem around the State? or is it a City thing? I started a facebook page OUTDOOR ADVERTISING SHOULD BE G RATED, and in less than 3 weeks it's been joined by over 3,100 people. I went to one billboard company to enquire about putting up our own billboard with this message and they refused my business. I am now working with a different billboard company.

ooer Ugh!
and when you consider the amount of the populace its aimed at..leaves one scratching the noggin..
I guess the Female Sexual Dysfunction drugs( another Lie) will soon hit the airwaves to balance the issue.
funny theres Supposed??? to be laws regarding marketing Pharmas direct..
USA and NZ are the only 2 places where Pharmas can peddle direct to drum up unnecessary business.
Wendy, Maybe? you could apply that legality? to get it stopped? just a thought.
IF? its a pharma drug it IS Illegal to do so.
exactly - our kids are just being subjected to way too much too soon. Let's let THEM have a LONGER LASTING CHILDHOOD!!
Babies and young children are loved by politicians but ask for an opinion about inappropriate advertising and the effect adult content ads could have on young kids and I was virtually ignored.
My emails and replies from our elected leaders are on www.protectkids.com.au
Did your local Federal member reply to my longer lasting opinion email(s) or my how to donate one?
wow! Can I use your emails and replies in my campaign if needed? I am putting up a billboard on the outskirts of brisbane calling for OUTDOOR ADVERTISING SHOULD BE G RATED. I have a summit with community groups on 23 April to discuss the way forward. Grateful for your info. Wendy Francis
Hi Wendy, Feel free to use anything on my website www.protectkids.com.au.
It was discouraging that my letter in The Sunday Telegraph didn't include my website URL
So if you can help spread the message that shows how hypocritical the people are that are paid to look out for us, the better.
Then next time a concerned voter asks for common sense there might be more of a response.
They make the rules and therefore they can change the rules on advertising.
Absolutely,let kids be kids and stop shoving sex down their throat.
Hi Wendy

Good job bringing this up. Add me to your list of supporters. While you're at it can we remove the pornographic magazines and images from the checkouts, newsagent windows and general public view as it seems that this sort of imagery is accepted as normal behaviour and sends all the wrong messages to children as they grow up. Cheers Sue
please let it be so!
It seems to be an encouragement of $ over decency.
You are onto quite a serious and important issue.
Go get em...
