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.
