Asda criticised over sweatshirt that 'perpetuates rape culture'

Post by Guest on Mon May 22, 2017 12:28 pm





A children's sweatshirt sold by supermarket chain Asda has sparked an online row after a shopper deemed its slogan to be sexist. 


"Quite literally gobsmacked and raging to see this in Asda Huntly," wrote Debbie Dee in a Facebook post, picturing the blue top bearing the slogan 'Boys Will Be Boys.'


The sweatshirt, priced at £4, prompted Ms Dee's ire as she deemend the phrase to be "very problematic".

The only thing problematic is how  some people see wrong in everything.

I mean was the intent here to offend or perpetuate a rape culture?


No

If she sees the word "BOYS" and thinks of rape, I think she has a problem that needs sorting.
