Stop selling "Fifty Shades of Grey" in all Target stores.

If target is willing to ban GTA V because a few people complained about issues WITHIN the game (which already has an R18+ rating), then it is necessary to ban the novel "Fifty Shades of Grey", as we feel that WITHIN the book, men are portrayed in a way that gives women unrealistic expectations of us when it comes to intimate relations. This can lead to many men being the subject of scrutiny and embarrasment in real life, which is unacceptable as it can lead to depression and low self-confidence. Which in turn can cause people to become violent and enraged.

The book also contains a large amount of adult themes such as sex, violence, and drug use. As books do NOT have a rating system, we feel it is of incredible importance to ban this book from the shelves before any children are exposed to this books filth. If a child were to read portions of this book when purchasing it for Christmas, A birthday, or even Mothers or Fathers day, then they would expose themselves to these adult themes. This could lead them to becoming violent at home, school, or whilst playing with friends. 

As Target Australia has "protected" the children by banning GTA V, we think it to be only fair and consistent to BAN "Fifty Shades of Grey". We must "protect" the children . . .
