Tesco stop selling violence against women images as 'funny' Valentines

This petition had 8 supporters

If we want women to be treated equally post MeToo we must show them as equals not as victims, even in jokes. This is especially important in areas where children view them, as they cannot make moral decisions but are affected by what they see. Valentine and other greetings cards displaying violent relationships are being sold at supermarket tills, showing a stereotyped 'female' tied to a bed apparently enjoying being filmed by a 'male' character with his tongue hanging out. This not the image of a consensual relationship, especially not one of love, which is what Valentine was famous for. Shops should be a safe space where children learn community values. Lets show love in comfortable and equitable relationships and make our world a better place for our children to live in together.
