KUDOS to TROJAN...THUMBS DOWN TO FOX AND CBS!

Kudos to Trojan Condoms for creating an advertising campaign encouraging individuals to "Evolve Toward a Sexually HealthyAmerica"! Check out their website http://www.trojanevolve.com/!

Thumbs DOWN:
FOX and CBS television networks are refusing to air condom ads. A FOX network spokesperson quoted in today's New York Times even went so far as to say that condom ads "must stress health-related issues rather than the prevention of pregnancy."

As major networks, FOX and CBS have an obligation to promote responsible decision making and commonsense public health solutions, including using condoms to prevent unintended pregnancy.

But Fox and CBS can use the notion of sex to sell almost anything else!

And they can air shows like the Bachelor and other sexually charged shows!

How dare they say that a condom commercial which aims to encourage sexually active people to make responsible choices is inappropriate!
