It's hard to believe but the above slightly clever advertisement for cruise ship holidays has aroused great wrath, even in laid-back Australia.
"Women's Health NSW executive officer, Denele Crozier, said the postcards "encouraged [men] to treat women like a piece of meat." NSW Rape Crisis Centre manager Karen Willis described them as "misogynistic" and "sexist in the extreme". "What they do is create a culture where at the extreme end some people may think that violence against women is somehow condoned," Ms Willis said.
The protesters would seem to have vivid imaginations. The cruise-ship company has of course grovelled in response.
