Bangkok buses replace sexist signs

‘Complaints by feminist groups have forced Bangkok authorities to replace signs that called on women but not men to remain chaste on city buses where Thai youths are known to have sex, an official said.

Rights groups were up in arms this week over the authority’s previous notices on buses calling for female riders to “reserve themselves”. [..]

According to the official the new signs read: “Guard your heart, protect your body. Both women and men, preserve your culture.”‘

followup to Bangkok students urged: No sex on buses.
