the president in september here illegally crossed back into ukraine with the help of his supporters to continue its opposition activities in the country. where they are u.k. is due to ban advertising based on gender stereotypes for next year an official from the advertising standards authority gave examples of the kind of campaigns now deemed unacceptable. and not the typical family members creating a mass well a woman has sole responsibility for cleaning it up or not this implies a specific activity is inappropriate for boys because it's usually associated with goals or vice versa or not the depicts a man trying and failing to undertake simple parental or household tasks are always the odd regulator to make sure that advertising doesn't mislead or offend a key argument behind the new rule is that gender stereotypes can influence the way children grow up and what dolts restrict themselves the report focuses on
