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?
Or are there pieces of media that inspire much more crime and chaos than holiday car commercials? Like the Koran, perhaps?
