Isaac Asimov is a science fiction author who devised three laws of robotics in his short story “Runaround” (1942), the first law being: “A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm”.

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention has found that men are three and a half times more likely to commit suicide than women.

American Apparel is notorious for its controversial ads which sexualize women to promote their clothing. The ad shown above displays a man dressed in the brand’s business casual line, holding a woman’s bare legs apart. There is no accompanying text aside from the American Apparel logo placed strategically between the female’s legs.
