Review the KissProof Lips ads

This petition had 14,656 supporters


 

Klara Cosmetics has placed ads with abhorrent tag lines such as “Just Kiss Me, Don’t Ask" and "Be Passionate & Leave No Evidence" throughout Australia.

The ads essentially tell impressionable young girls (10-12y.o.) that you're only attractive if someone cant help but launch at you and kiss you without consent. It encourages them to define female attractiveness in the most vulgar way possible. One ad might not make a difference but 20 of these ads from 20 companies starts to create a culture and breeds a deformed pre-pubescent psyche that accepts it. To quote the recent "He for She" speech: "if not me then who, if not now then when". We can't keep sitting back; we need do something about this.  

We therefore request that Klara Cosmetics remove all advertisements with indirect support of sexual assault towards women.
