This is important because supermarkets and newsagents display these magazines in such as a way as to attract the attention of as many people as possible. The covers of these magazines are becoming more and more explicit, and are increasing the dangers of the sexualisation of young children.

      Hi guys, we're SO appreciative of the support that you've shown. It shows us that you really care about the issues at stake here, and the effects that explicit magazines like Nuts, Zoo, Loaded, etc have on kids and adults alike.

      We're appreciative, but can you do more? It's great that you've signed, but can you push the petition under the noses of those around you...friends, family, colleagues, class-mates, etc...pretty much everyone that you can find. What we need is signatures, signatures, signatures...the more the better!

      It is important to the future of social behaviour at the moment it is going in the wrong direction.

      The images are pornographic and they should be treated as pornographic magazines. As they are not they are in children's view in many places, supermarkets, cafes..warping their view of what sex is, ie an intimate, loving expression of mutual adoration.

      • 12 months ago

      Children should not be subjected to seeing these images, they are hugely inappropriate to be on view for young children and teenagers to see. All lads mags should be covered.

      Lads mags annoy me on so many levels - as a parent of a son and a daughter, as a wife, a sister, a daughter. They are demeaning to all women and promote the sexualisation of children. They should be more discretely displayed, if at all.

      • 12 months ago

      Children should be protected from imagery that objectifies and sexualises women in a public place that they are unable to control or avoid.
