Petition Closed

There is a film that is being showed that forcibly performs gender reassignment surgery on a man as a means of punishing him.  This film is entirely out of line as the conclusion one draws is between rapists and transsexuals and gender reassignment surgery as a punishment.

 

The film that Comcast is selling at this point entitled VICTIM is utterly abhorrent in one of the most despicable ways possible.  It shows a brutal rape scene (although masked in some manners) and leads to the eventual violent forced feminization and forced sexual reassignment surgery of a kidnap victim.  

Transgender people face an enormous amount of violence and on average are murdered once a month in the United States.  The violence and suggestions made by this film elicit further violence and the mis-characterization of a population of individuals already struggling to live without being violated

Please sign this petition that is going to the Vice President of Public Relations with Comcast.

 

Letter to
Vice President, Public Relations Beth Bacha
Dear Ms. Bacha,

I think you would agree that films such as the one we are writing to you about are simply unacceptable for your company to put OnDemand.

The film that you are selling at this point entitled VICTIM is utterly abhorrent in one of the most despicable ways possible. It shows a brutal rape scene (although masked in some manners) and leads to the eventual violent forced feminization and forced sexual reassignment surgery of a kidnap victim.

Transgender people face an enormous amount of violence and on average are murdered once a month in the United States. The violence and suggestions made by this film elicit further violence and the mis-characterization of a population of individuals already struggling to live without being violated.

Please further investigate how such a violent film came to be on your programming.

Please remove this film and donate any monies made from the film to organizations that provide for Gender Education as well as Rape Prevention and Treatment.

We urgently request you respond and remove this film,

Sincerely,
