Object Theory

How can your paper possibly accept such sexist advertising from American Apparel, week after week? Your current issue is a clear example of that, as is the flashing ad on your website as I prepare to submit this letter.

I don’t know how to influence your staff, but I do know that this advertising unfairly and negatively portrays women as objects, rather than people. Why do you continue to do that? Aren’t there other options?

By the way, I have also contacted American Apparel.
