Just received this morning from a reader via email:
Amid all the problems of the world in India and elsewhere:
Just in time for the holidays, Honda has a new ad trivializing rape for its commercial gain.
In the cartoon, two men are depicted lowers a restrained man, who takes the place of a angel to top a tree. One of two workers says, ‘we might have to twist him on.’
This is not only tasteless but entertains a culture of rape. Even the most radical feminist should stand against this, as women suffer disproportionately from acceptance of this culture.
Please help take a stand up against this by taking the lead and cover the story.
I am sure your viewers would applaud taking a stand against this.
What do you think? Should one “take a stand” against Honda’s PG-13 rated double entendre type joke in an effort to reduce rape?
