Co-op tells lads mags to cover up by September
The Co-op is taking a stand against crap lads mags by forcing publishers to cover them up in ‘modesty bags’ if the magazines continue to feature naked women. The cover up applies to titles such as Nuts, Zoo, Loaded and Front and must happen by September 9th, or the Co-op will refuse to sell them.
The move comes months after a group of female lawyers warned that displaying magazines that objectified women was technically illegal.
Steve Murrells, retail chief executive for the Co-operative Group, said: "As a community-based retailer, we have listened to the concerns of our customers and members, many of whom say they object to their children being able to see overt sexual images in our stores.’
Piers Hernu, former editor of Tits magazine, FRONT magazine, said the Co-op had ‘caved in to a vociferous campaign from fanatical feminists’ and was ‘weak willed and spineless.’
To get some perspective on that, here’s Piers Hernu, referring to women as ‘frolicksome fillies.' Whatta guy!
Personally, I don’t think this takes it far enough. I think the INSIDE of the magazines should be covered up too.
Actually, sod it. They should just all be put in a black bin bag and kicked off a bridge – preferably by 'vociferous feminists' in steel toe capped boots.
