Censorship: Ban This Filth!

The UK's main supermarkets could be exposed to legal challenges from employees and customers if they refuse to remove magazines and newspapers with naked [sic] women on their covers, a group of lawyers have claimed.
In a letter published in the Guardian, 14 equalities lawyers say supermarkets and other retailers are vulnerable to legal challenges under sexual discrimination law.
Experts from six legal sets, including Matrix Chambers, where members include Cherie Booth QC, wife of the former prime minister Tony Blair, say that displaying publications "in workplaces, and/or requiring staff to handle them in the course of their jobs may amount to sex discrimination and sexual harassment contrary to the Equality Act 2010"...

The people behind this ludicrous campaign also want gay magazines, like those purveyors of absolute filth and wreckers of civilisation, Attitude and GT, covered up or taken off the shelf, of course.
The human body is not obscene.
Sex is not bad.
"Pornography" is not evil.
You don't make the world a better place by banning everything you don't like.

PS Putting "gay lifestyle" mags on the top shelf only serves stigma and shame.
If you see one there, why not move it?
