Campaigners call to remove baby clothes branded with ‘sexualised and porn-inspired imagery’

Wonders shall never end. Is this coming to an end finally? This is o’course a capital “NO” to a good parental home.  I can’t believe or imagine such a sexualized or porn-inspired imagery and slogans on baby clothes and merchandize. Thanks to the Australian equality campaigners who have called for an American online retail company to remove products that they claim promote and encourage child sexual abuse.

Café Press, an online retailer that sells clothing and homeware printed with customised slogans, currently offers baby clothes branded with messages such as a bib with “F*** like a porn star” on a baby blanket or “Awesome masturbating” written across it.

The Twitter page for the American company, which has its global headquarters in Louisville, has been flooded with messages from social media users castigating the retail giant for allowing these products to be sold.

The British version of the site currently offers 132 different baby clothing products under the category of ‘Adult Sex XXX Porn’. The bibs are on sale for £10.50, while the blanket retails at £15.50. A baby onsie with the slogan ‘Retired XXL Porn Star’ is on sale for 313.50, down from £16.00.

The Australian version of the site offers many more different t-shirts and slogans, including a babygrow with “Porn star in training” written across it. Yesterday, the site offered both a ‘No means Yes, Yes means Anal’ mug and t-shirt however although the items do appear on search, users can no longer purchase them and their landing page appears to have been removed by site operators overnight.

Writing on the official Twitter, the company appeared to be in process of taking the offending merchandise down.
