Thanks to Kumudam Reporter

Women who wear leggings are immoral! That’s what Kumudam, a popular Tamil Magazine, thinks.
Kumudam has also printed several photos of women wearing leggings without their consent! If the women are wearing Kurtas over their leggings, the magazine has chosen to print sleazy photographswhere the wind is blowing up their kurta.
This is sickening behaviour! Sign our petition and make Kumudam magazine apologise for this tasteless story.
The magazine has also printed a poem by an anonymous male author – who says men can’t help but ogle women, so it is the responsibility of women to dress ‘decently’.
Kumudam thinks it can get away with moral policing and publicly shaming women! We need to show them that if they publish such stories, they too will be held publicly accountable.
Kumudam’s editor and managing director have refused to comment on this story. They’re refusing to acknowledge that their magazine hasdone anything wrong.
Sadly, this is not the first time that Kumudam has demeaned women. They have run many such sensational stories where they degrade women. Kumudam has to be held accountable!
Sign my petition and make Kumudam apologise and promise to publish responsible stories.
I am a female journalist and Kumudam’s history of objectifying and judging women sickens me. If enough people sign this petition, we canshow Kumudam that their readers and their audience will not tolerate such stories.
If we make Kumudam apologise, other media outlets will think twice before running ‘stories’ such as this. Sign my petition and make Kumudam apologise and promise to engage in responsible journalism.
Porn is not about healthy sexual relationship, its about male domination of women, subjugation of women’s body….. the only body part in constant touch in porn is only the penis & the vagina
PORN is Prostitution and prostitution is to benefit the ‘employer’ and the bloody flesh trade not anybody else… it instills violence on women’s body & also men’s mental health about his manliness, large penis and penetration & long duration fucking power.
“Porn is not an embodiment of freedom of expression, it is sexual perversion, it works side by side to human trafficking, rape, sexual violence….. it is an industrial exploitation for money”
