McDonald's are pushing soft porn to kids by screening hyper-sexualised content on their in-store TV screens throughout restaurants across Australia.
Our petition for McDonald's to implement a national policy regarding family friendly content has gained thousands of signatures.

From an ex employee

Last May we called out CafePress for selling slut and incest themed baby clothing. We weren't the first to do so, as US based activists like One Angry Girl had been campaigning against their pornified merchandise since 2004.
Last week, our activists came across more Cafepress clothing and merchandise with porn inspired and pro-rape slogans and imagery. Cafepress responded, essentially encouraging members of the public to do their job for them making further complaints at Cafepress's convenience.
In the past, Cafepress have hidden behind their user generated system, claiming they will implement systems to solve the problem. They've known about the problem for years and they have done nothing.
This week, our campaign generated international media interest, with news media out of the UK, Canada, France and US. Cafepress is beginning to discover that sexploitation does not sell.

Don't pay for Sexploitation this holiday season
It's that time of year again. The time of year when companies ramp up their advertising in order to compete for your Christmas dollar. There is nowhere you can go without companies placing their product and logo in your face.
Now is the time to recall which companies used sexploitation to sell and promote their products over this past year. You can make a difference by voting with your dollar against sexploitation this holiday season.
