Disturbing Facts (2) Are they such a threat?

Are these magazines really such a threat to society?

All these magazines promote their publications as being a true representation of every-day life.  Chat Magazine itself even promotes itself as "the real-life weekly".  These magazine stories make sure that children who see them will grow up thinking that males are evil monsters and are not to be trusted.

Subjecting impressionable minds with a constant stream of material like this will inevitably have a detrimental effect on a child's world view.  That's what was said about the lad's mags and the same is true, here.  These chat magazines are extremely corrosive and they will have an influence on how children grow up to see the world.   

Consider sitting down in front of your children and reading some of those headlines out loud to them.   If you think that's a bad idea, do you think the newsagents and supermarkets should display them next to the comics?

We now have a generation of children growing up thinking that it's acceptable to treat males as potential molesters, pedophiles, murderers and rapists, just waiting for an opportunity to attack and kill them.  They grow up fearing their fathers, their brothers and their uncles are all "killers-in-waiting".  These type of magazines actively seek to reinforce these fears in their pursuit of profit.


A few of the graphic headlines from some of the 
June 2017 women's chat magazines marketed as "a casual read"
2017 June - These headline are displayed on some of the popular women's magazine for sale in the local high street newsagent and supermarket. They have aggressively low pricing, selling at well under £1.  

  • Evil ex TORE my face OFF
  • He Bit Me FOR NOT WANTING SEX
  • BRUTE RIPPED OUT MY COIL
  • STRANGLED AND DUMPED IN A PIT
  • BEATEN to death for CRYING...by his mother's drunk boyfriend
  • EVIL DAD  KILLED HIS GIRLS TO SPITE THEIR MOTHER
There are no restrictions in selling these magazines to minors.

Over 250 different editions of these women's chat magazines published in a year... millions are sold every week from supermarkets and newsagent shelves.  How many children saw them?  And what do they now think about their fathers, brothers, uncles, grandads?

Some Children's Charities have Voiced their Concern

Some children's sexual abuse campaigns have said how these magazines are a threat to the way that children interpret  the world around them.  The Children's charity, Child’s Eye Line UK, is one such charity and is committed to protecting children from pornography, sexual imagery, negative stereotypes and frightening headlines.
