PREMIER: Stop “sex” advertising on my kid’s school bus

This petition had 5,205 supporters


Strippers, sex hotlines, nudity — explicit images are being splashed across our kid’s school buses. Right now, buses are picking up school kids with these inappropriate ads for the upcoming adult sex event, Sexpo!
 
As a mum of three young kids who regularly use public transport for school and sporting activities, I was appalled to hear that Sexpo 2017 was advertising on public buses across the country — it’s due to hit Brisbane next month.
 
I’m in touch with a bunch of other concerned mums who’ve seen similar ads on billboards right outside school gates. We have kids in primary school for goodness sake — we don’t want ads and links to watch “live sex” forced on them!!
 
But despite the federal government recommending that public transport not feature advertisements of this nature, nothing has changed in practice (it’s up to the state governments to act, but they’re ignoring their responsibility.)

The Advertising Standards Board is also failing us! Our only regulatory body that has any power to ban this type of advertising responded to previous complaints stating they understand some members of the public would prefer sex-related products and services not to be advertised, but legally they are allowed to be.
 
The QLD Premier says she’s serious about child protection and sexual violence — so let’s urge her to crack down on this inappropriate and over-sexualised advertising! Please sign and share my petition to ban ads for sex industry on public buses and billboards next to schools.
