When skinny mannequins get under the skin

Like me, you may have hoped the recent 'Beach Body' furore was a once-off. But that was never going to be the case. In that instance, a bunch of dopey women and the eunuchs who support them complained that an ad featuring a model with a great body was an insult to all women everywhere.
Essentially, a bunch of angry birds decided that their own insecurity was sufficient reason to have an ad banned.
Of course, give these emotionally incontinent pygmies an inch and they'll take a mile and Topshop is the latest high-street store to feel the ire of our new clerical class, which is every bit as prudish and censorious as the priests they have replaced.
