There is a shirt on display at Condom World in Boston with the text "Team Player" on it with the image of a thin man holding the hand of a larger woman.
The shirt promotes fat-shaming at it's most fundamental level. The shirt communicates that only a man who is "taking one for the team" would engage in any relations with a woman who has fat on her. This conveys that, a) No man could or should be attracted to a woman who isn't thin, b) There is no reason a man should even be seen holding hands with a woman who isn't thin, unless he is doing so out of pity for this woman or some other reason that is disrespectful of the humanity of the woman, c) It is shameful to be with a woman who isn't thin, and many other repulsive messages.
Condom World claims to be"Boston's most convenient and reliable source for high-quality, sex-positive products, information, and customer service."

Sex positivity and fat-shaming cannot coexist. In order for Condom World to show respect to their customers of all body types, we ask that they remove this shirt from their window display and hopefully from their inventory completely.
Please sign this petition to support body positivity and sex positivity! A kinder world is attainable, one voice at a time.
