The National Center on Sexual Exploitation is targeting the Cosmo cover. All of them.
“Still, [Dawn Haskins] explains, the problem is that in many stores the typically racy magazine cover is at eye level where children can see its inappropriate images. Hawkins says their campaign targets 30 companies that do display Cosmopolitan at eye level…”
NCSE was formerly known as Morality in Media, and also Porn Harms (the current moniker appears designed to co-opt or sabotage the longstanding National Coalition for Sexual Freedom). The group is asking “that Cosmo be sold to adults only and have the cover wrapped like all other porn magazines in retail shops.”
Because, you know, freedom.
They further allege that Cosmo and anyone who sells it is “profiting from sexual exploitation.” This is a talking point that grew out of anti-prostitution activism, after it was discovered that the far right had more success in getting its way when it conflates sex work with human trafficking. NCSE extended the tactic to anything it considers to be pornographic, and apparently doesn’t know when they’re jumping the shark with the technique: the suggestion here, of course, is that anyone who appears in, contributes to or is involved with Cosmopolitan is either being sexually exploited or is doing the exploiting.
