Victoria's Secret Complaint - Window Displays Of Victoria's Secret Are Pornographic & Offending Women In Communities
NEW YORK -- When the unfortunate reality of a lingErie company opened a branch in our neighborhood, most women formed a protest storefront asking Victoria Secret to TONE down their sexually aggressive photos and displays on mannequins. It was noted as not child safe, compared to a porn shop window and highly offensive to the women of a wealthy and largely educated demographic.
They lost the battle and were forced to lessen their aggressive visual presentations to the public.
Since then, they have gradually added it all back growing more and more vulgar with larger than life photos of all white women with breast implants and bras that send them to their neck. It's looks like what I describe right now as I look out from a 10th floor window, opposite my building.
It is stressful to women who ask their husbands to look away. It's offensive to mothers with young children.
This is a company who neither cares or listens to the female public supporting their business.
I went to the Manager and was told she could do nothing and go to the executives. Good luck.
That was it. Nothing changed and these vulgar images of women strutting their bras and private parts in our faces 24/7 continues, and is too much. It is disrespectful to women of all ages. We don't want our men, parents or children seeing these standards and these views. It isn't anything but pornographic content.
Since when does a company think it their right of speech to offend women. Not a woman walking by approves and we'[re forming a boycott and petition to wake up the executives to go back to covered up clothed women in their ads. They can go inside for the undressed versions of their products. But for public display to host see through and all the variations of bras as though it's safe and normal to expose a young woman that way is WRONG.
The business will suffer in this branch when we're through with our boycott. If they don't want to give us what we want (respect) then they will lose our money.
We are a decent family oriented neighborhood as all our store window fronts display. Until this vulgar porn industry invaded our street, we could get to our destination without the assault of this in our faces.
Please make sure Victoria Secret stop this selling and exploiting of women as body parts and porn dolls.
