What About Your Ads?

I wanted to comment on the recent article by Stephen Dark [“Rape in Utah,” Jan 2, City Weekly]. It is a very tragic and disgusting thing that happened to Jessica Ripley. I can’t imagine what a person goes through in a situation like that. I am glad that you are bringing more attention to it, and hopefully things will start to change in SLC and everywhere. There is too much of this going on.

With that said, I do find it ironic that a majority of ads in City Weekly portrays women as sexual objects. I get that we live in a repressive society—let’s not deny that—and it is obvious that this attracts people. But subconsciously, would you agree, this promotes objectifying women as sexual objects?

I enjoy the articles in your newpaper and I do appreciate what you guys do. And as one of the leading free guides for entertainment is SLC, I hope that everyone working for you can be a catalyst for change on this issue here and possibly other cities.
