Last week, the United Nations announced on Thursday that it will be partnering with companies like Johnson & Johnson, Google, Facebook, and Twitter to launch Unstereotype Alliance, a campaign to fight sexist ads that objectify and sexualize women to sell products.
“Every day, hundreds of millions of people around the world are exposed to the communications our industry creates,” Martin Sorrell, chief executive of major ad company WPP, told Huffington Post. “That influence can either be used to reinforce negative stereotypes or to set new standards of empowerment and equality.”
Nonetheless, a major goal of the Unstereotype Alliance will be to help transform commercials into a platform to empower young women, rather than the opposite. Television commercials could cast women as scientists for once, or maybe at the office instead of at home, cleaning. Maybe they could even portray women as human beings rather than sex objects, and teach boys to respect them?
Maybe the U.N. could find a less stupid way to waste time and money?
These companies force women to be in these ads without compensation? Evil companies

Meanwhile, women are stoned to death in Afghanistan, & gay men are hanging from cranes in Iran.
Glad we have the UN for important matters. https://t.co/gusS5MfrZU

And then leave us the hell alone.
It is none of the U.N.'s business. One more reason to leave the UN and defund it.
