Sexualisation of children

Sexualisation of children is a significant problem facing our society. Our outdoor spaces should be safe for all families and children to enjoy and yet very often everyone is bombarded with sexualised messages.

Would you support a move in Tasmania to restrict all outdoor advertising to the equivalent of a G rating?

Another example is the Wicked Campers vans with their disgraceful messages. Unlike the TV you can’t just switch off or change the channel. I am not sure of the merits of a “G verse PG” approach etc but happy to discuss further
