Blayboy Logo Has No Pornographic Connections (within their "target market" )~WH Smut's Spokeswoman, From Planet Zog
This is the response I have received from the WH Smith’s (a.k.a. WH Smut) representative, Linda Robbins, concerning my complaint that WH Smut butt are promoting the merchandise of a Pornographer to young girls. Those of the bearing of the - sickly - pinky - nauseating little bunny logo.
Thank you for your email, expressing your views about our ‘Playboy’ range of stationery.
We introduced this range reacting to the current trends that appeal to our customers, especially as ‘Playboy’ has grown in popularity amongst our teenage market.
*Research has also indicated that this logo is now an established fashion brand which the target market do not relate back to any pornographic connections it once had.
I’m sorry that you are offended by this range, as this is certainly not our intention. However, due to its popularity, we do not currently have any plans to withdraw it from sale. Your feedback is valuable to us as we do try to strike the right balance in meeting the needs of all our customers, which inevitably means a compromise when customers have strongly differing views. I’d like to assure you that we will continue to monitor the feedback we receive and we will take your specific comments into consideration when we next review this matter.
Once again, thank you for taking the time to write to us.
