Dear Boxer Gifts
Well I have to hand it to you – I have signed many a petition in my life, but this is the first time I have created one.
How many ways are there to tell you how bad this product is? How many times do we have to say that rape is not funny, that products like these promote rape culture, that rape and abuse destroys lives?
What is it going to take for companies like yours to stop creating these products?
Boxer Gifts, when someone asks what rape culture is, we can point to your product as an example. Is that the sort of reputation you want?
Actually, to be fair, I don’t give a crap about your reputation. I only really care that you are treating rape and abuse victims like shit with this product and your crappy response.
Do the right thing and withdraw it from sale.
For those of you who have stopped by and read this – a link to the petition is here – please consider signing and sharing it.
UPDATE: Since posting this, Boxer Gifts have removed all comments relating to this from their facebook page and if you see my comments area below, you will see someone has arrived making various disparaging comments. I suspect that this person is a Boxer Gifts employee (because of the email address they provided when submitting the comments. Also they avoided the question when I raised it). Whether or not their boss is aware of this is anyone’s guess – if they are then it’s a really bad way to deal with public concerns. And if they aren’t then they are a company who have a lot of issues…
