This disturbing message was emblazoned across the front of a child-size T-shirt recently for sale in the Philippines:
"It's not rape. Its a snuggle with a struggle.
A Filipino chain called SM Supermalls pulled the printed T-shirt
from its stores after one outraged customer posted an image to Twitter. The shirt was sold in the boys section.
Famed writer and activist Karen Kunawicz first posted the photo
to her Facebook page yesterday morning, where its since been shared more than 4,000 times.
SM Supermalls issued a statement
saying that they do not "tolerate" messages that poke fun at serious issues like sexual assault.
"SM does not support such irresponsible and malicious acts that mock important and sensitive social issues.
We have immediately pulled out all the t-shirts of the consignor that distributes them, and we are investigating why it was included in our delivery of assorted t-shirts.
It's believed that a buyer is responsible for the shirt being stocked in stores.
