When you step foot in a lingerie store, chances are you'll be seeing some, y'know, lingerie. You might even see some images of women modeling that lingerie on their semi-exposed woman bodies. 

Most people accept (or perhaps even enjoy) this fact. But not all people, apparently! This week, a Playboy lingerie model had her ad banned for being too "vulgar" — and she's pissed about it.

After Simone Holtznagel's latest ad campaign was pulled from Australian store Bras N Things,  Holtznagel took to Instagram with a strongly worded letter to the people who complained about it.

Shoutout to the prude who complained about my "vulgar" "amateur porn" advertisement for the amazing Australian brand Bras [N] Things and had the clip banned from stores ... Honestly, it's just soooo offensive to show a confident, sexy WOMAN in her LINGERIE in the window of a (plot twist) — LINGERIE STORE!!!!

Here's a lil' clip from the video in question:

Hmm. Bras, panties, a woman. This does indeed seem like appropriate content for a store that is selling bras and panties to women!

But according to Australian website Mumbrella, Australia's Ads Standard Board honored at least two requests to remove the video from stores because they deemed that "the manner in which the lingerie is modeled by the woman is sexualized."

Holtznagel made it clear in her Instagram post that she disagrees.

How dare you sexualize my body. How dare ... you take a confident and carefree depiction of a normal, healthy womanly body, promoting women's products to women, and deem it offensive... [B]y saying my body, just comfortably being my body, is somehow "wrong" or "dirty" you are insulting and potentially damaging any woman who may identify with me. Keep your neuroses off my body and go watch some REAL porn, you might be less uptight.

Burn!
