Svedka: Stop showing women of the "future" as robots that are controlled by men

    1. Petition by

      About-Face

Women are not robots! By portraying women as "things," like robots, you are encouraging disrespect of women and making it more likely that violence against women will occur. A "seductive, sexy" robot insinuates that others can control it.

      I have a 10 year old daughter and it is my job to make the world better for her. Your commercial portrays the opposite view that I want her to learn.

      This is a reprehensible ad that removes all humanity from women and turns them into sexbots. I will not ever buy your products.

      Because women's work is never done and is underpaid or unpaid or boring or repetitious and we're the first to get fired and what we look like is more important than what we do and if we get raped it's our fault and if we get beaten we must have provoked it and if we raise our voices we're nagging bitches and if we enjoy sex we're nymphos and if we don't we're frigid and if we love women it's because we can't get a "real" man and if we ask our doctor too many questions we're neurotic and/or pushy and if we expect childcare we're selfish and if we stand up for our rights we're aggressive and "unfeminine" and if we don't we're typical weak females and if we want to get married we're out to trap a man and if we don't we're unnatural and because we still can't get an adequate safe contraceptive but men can walk on the moon and if we can't cope or don't want a pregnancy we're made to feel guilty about abortion and...for lots of other reasons we are part of the women's liberation movement. ~Author unknown, quoted in The Torch, 14 September 1987

      Women play major roles in bringing life to this world; portraying them as robots is incredibly offensive and objectifying.
