What woman at Groupon vetted this company?

GrouponLogo 2Dear Friend, 

 

We wondered what the women at Groupon think. But, in our research, we cannot find any women who are among Groupon's senior management. One wonders if this is just another case of the boys-will-be-boys corporate culture? 

 

Kink sells the sickest of hardcore videos and live online performances of "young, sexy teens who are overwhelmed and outnumbered…who need to learn a lesson by multiple men," according to the Kink website. The girls and women are "bound, whipped, objectified and humiliated ... suspended and tied in rope bondage…tormented beyond all reason ...pulled in and out of cages, their tongues clamped, their bodies pinned." 

 

We want to know what woman working at Groupon vetted this company? 

 

Contact Groupon again! Visit this page here and scroll to the bottom for all of their contact info. AND PLEASE ALSO ASK AT LEAST FIVE OF YOUR FRIENDS TO DO SO TOO! (If Groupon responds, please forward to us.)

 

Our national boycott of Groupon is succeeding in getting the press attention we hoped it would. The company has been selling coupons for torture porn company Kink. We announced the boycott after Groupon defended Kink. Instead of taking responsibility and recognizing the concerns of their customers, the Senior Vice President of Engineering and Operations, Brian Totty, even tried to forward all of your complaints back to us. Needles to say, thousands have now canceled their accounts with Groupon.

P.S. Here are links to just some of the news articles on our boycott (or as one of our supporters called it our girlcott). Please help.

 

REMINDER! We have a free, online event today talking with teens who struggle with porn addiction.
