Melinda Tankard Reist speaks out on Roger David's 'rape chic' t-shirts
Added on Wednesday, January 27, 2010

Melinda has been quoted in the Courier Mail's article "Sexual message offends as T-shirts labelled 'rape chic'" on the online furore about the "Blood is the new black" t-shirt range from Roger David:

"These T-shirts reinforce the message that girls are there for sexual gratification and sexual amusement. I really think that's a very dangerous and harmful message."
