Victoria’s Secret – a stroll through our local mall

By: American Decency Staff

Personal note: We took a stroll through our local mall (Rivertown Crossings Mall, Grandville, MI)  recently to see how Victoria’s Secret is marketing their product as we approach “Black Friday’ shopping a week from this Friday. Disclaimer: The enclosed image is somewhat obscured. We provide this link only to document our concerns. We were sadly disappointed. Express your thoughts at: Is Victoria's Secret toning down as they stated they would be on February 28 2008? Has Victoria’s Secret returning to marketing with the harder edge as we have often times seen in earlier years at our local malls? We believe so. Some may think this frivolous.  We don't.   The mall attracts many young people.  Placing scantily clad models with seductive expressions and appearances SEDUCES.  It also communicates that this is how women are to look – seductive. Nationally noted author, researcher and speaker, Dr. Judith Reisman states it this way: [] “Virulent pornography will continue to spread until people understand erotic displays in their proper context. Any PUBLIC display of PRIVATE erotic behavior endangers the life, health and welfare of the person displaying as well as the life, health and welfare of the "set" or group that person represents (commonly women). This is both historically and cross culturally established — and it is common sense. Still, millions of ninnies are regularly conned by the fantasy that private, intimate space conduct–safe only with ones beloved or trusted other–can be casually displayed in public space to millions of strangers, including potential predators-without dire consequences. The "celebrate" sharing your naked body with predatory strangers is a continued effort to legitimize pornography and prostitution, always pandered by PP.  Judith Reisman, PhD It is irresponsible to display pornography at the local mall!   Moms and Dads, grandmothers and grandfathers need to oppose indecency/pornography wherever it is found – certainly that includes the local mall.

Is speaking up against indecency at the checkout counters trivial? Is writing letters to advertisers unworthy of your attention? Is perfecting holiness in the fear of God old-fashioned?
