Quote, unquote: Selling soft porn with groceries is sending the wrong signal

 “The point we are making is these lads mags are harmful by portraying women as dehumanised sex objects. They fuel attitudes that underpin violence against women and there is something about the normalisation of this objectification of women that we think is problematic. That you can buy these kinds of magazines in between the clothes and the groceries in Tesco and other supermarkets gives out a signal that this kind of attitude towards woman is normal and acceptable."
-- British Green MP Caroline Lucas, talking in a radio interview (quoted by Press Gazette) about the campaign to get Tesco's, the largest retailer in the country, to stop selling the so-called "lads mags".
