Let’s Put The Bunny in the Bin!

binthebunny.jpg

In response to Playboy opening a ‘concept’ store in London this September, the feminist protest group Anti-porn UK are holding a protest on Saturday 29th September. Following this they plan to have monthly protests, with the next on 27th October.

Anti-porn UK are also developing some short comedy films highlighting the darker side of Playboy, and a blog to share the latest news and views on the campaign.

Anti-porn UK are opposed to the continuing expansion of Playboy as the acceptable face of porn, its increasing cross-over into everyday culture under the guise of ‘cute’ products; often targeted to appeal to young girls, and the continuing attempt to promote the message to girls and young women that being a playboy ‘bunny’ is to be desirable and successful.

Anti-porn UK are asking protesters not to just turn up to the protests due to lack of space.

Anti-porn UK advises that anyone angry about Playboy's presence in the UK can:

Write to Westminster City Council, stating that you object to the opening of this store, and requesting that they do not allow other similar stores to open.

Write to your M.P., objecting to the expansion of Playboy and making it known that you would object to a similar store opening in your area.

Visit thisisplayboy.com for ideas of what you/your group can do to raise awareness of anti-Playboy campaigning and have fun taking action against stores selling Playboy merchandise.

For more information on the protests email binthebunny@yahoo.co.uk and look out for films and details of the protest at http://binthebunny.wordpress.com

I dare say that, if the shop in question were pushing the feminist side, such as the porn pages in "Cosmopolitan" and other women's magazines, we would be told it was meant to be "just a harmless bit of humour."

<br /><a href="http://www.x-dunk.com/">lebron shoes</a> Im sure the The Little Squire, will be higher in many peoples list, and Supra shoes d struggle to argue with that. Hes one of only five players to have won all four of the modern cheap ugg boots professional major tournaments. <a href="http://www.x-dunk.com/">kobe shoes</a> If his second shot at the 72nd hole at Troon in 2009 had stopped as quick as it surely shouldve done, then Vardon would have company in the six time Open Championship winners club, and Francis Ouimet wouldve had some serious competition for the greatest golf story ever told.<a href="http://www.mysupras.com/">supra shoes</a> A bad weather specialist with exceptional scrambling ability was always going to do well in the Open.

I recently read a book by a lady who was once a Playboy Bunny.

In it, she tells all - there is indeed a very dark to being a Playboy Bunny. Many things happen, and girls are treated badly.

I think this is a great initiative that you are taking.

Viewing 3D pictures, you will get the feeling that it is real like you're inside the picture. The feeling is different when you see 3D pictures compare to usual pictures. That's why I always love to see pictures in 3D. http://www.mapleleafpromotions.com/Coffee-Mugs-Colored-15-oz.html

I agree that it's not very relevant,but isn't the point of it to show what people are currently saying about a topic.
