The British Goverment: Stop shops displaying sexually explicit magazines

      Danielle Fullarton

      Ayr, United Kingdom

The images on the covers of "lads mags" and certain newspapers are becoming more and more sexually explicit, often crossing the boundaries of pornography, yet they are openly displayed in shops, garages and newsagents all over the country, often right next to children's comics or a childrens eye-level. While there is a market for such material, it should be placed out of sight, with only the title on show, as to protect the innocence of our young children. Most people agree that children are becoming sexualised at alarmingly young ages but it is hardly surprising when sexual images are openly displayed in child-friendly places. Please take a stand against the over-sexualisation of children and sign this petition today. Your signature will add weight to the campaign when it is taken to retailers and the government to challenge them on this matter.

      I was just complaining about this not so long ago, being 'high up' as acceptable is just ridiculous. children can see it if they are far away or they might be sitting on someone talls shoulders, but even so it just shouldn't be on show, I don't want to see it...

      I have two young children, a boy and girl, and I don't want either of them to exposed to such overly sexualised images at such a young and impressionable age.
