Tell Etsy to Remove Rape Congratulations Cards from Website

"Congratulations. You Got Bad Touched."

That's the message printed on cards for sale on Etsy, an online marketplace for handmade and vintage items. The cards currently sell for $2.50 each and are made by a person using the name "youstupibitch." I kid you not.

So, what exactly are you getting for your two and a half dollars? An offensive card featuring a drawing of a naked sexual assault victim curled up on the floor of a shower stall, "printed on heavy duty white cardstock" complete with "red accents and matching envelope." 

Etsy's official policy is to take no responsibility for the products sold on its site. Etsy's official Terms of Use state that it  "has no control over the quality, safety, morality or legality of any aspect of the items listed." However, in the list of prohibited items, Etsy says that it does not allow items that harass others or that are deemed obscene.

 Ask Etsy to remove this card from their website and send a message that this type of product is unwelcome on their website. 

UPDATE: The same user on Etsy also sells cards that "congratulate" breast cancer patients and mock mothers of special needs children. Tell Etsy to remove all of these cards ASAP!
