Following a campaign calling on 7-Eleven to withdraw unrestricted pornographic magazines that sexualise teen girls and encourage harassment, on September 4, 2019, Collective Shout announced a victory.
The magazines, including People and Picture, included headlines such as “X-rated Aussie Teens”, referred to teenage girls as “fresh flesh” and promoted ‘nip slips’ and upskirting, which is a crime in Australia. Another article claimed that girls desire being groped by strangers.
7-Eleven CEO Angus McKay said franchisees had been instructed to remove the magazines from sale as a priority.
Amazon have a long history of selling exploitative products. We've been challenging them to do better since they stocked "The Paedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure: A child-lovers code of conduct" back in 2010. They initially argued freedom of speech but eventually pulled the product from their shelves.
Sadly the list of vile products stocked by Amazon has only gotten longer since then.
