You can barely make out the tagline of the hoarding, but I'll read it out, "Ambitious girls always lose their virginity".
The first time I saw it, I was alone in the car, and was pretty sure I had misread it. Surely nobody could make a statement like that, and get away with it. Even if people did feel that way, would they dare proclaim it in bold letters? In a country where mobs disrupted the screening of 'Fire', a sensitively made movie about a lesbian relationship, and forced the movie to be withdrawn from theaters, would anybody risk making a proclamation like that in public?
And what a stupid, sexist statement! What did the ambitions or lack of it of any girl have to do with her virginity. Even if the brilliant brain that came up with the idea meant to imply that ambitious girls slept their way to the top, what was the connection between that and virginity? Isn't virginity something that you can lose only once?
In fact, I could perhaps argue the reverse. An unambitious girl is more likely to get married before an ambitious one, and assuming sex follows marriage may well lose her virginity before her ambitious sister.
Whichever way I look at it, the tagline just doesn't make sense. And what makes even less sense is the fact that nobody else seems to have found it as offensive as I do.
