here is the thread

A MNr began the thread when she came across This monstrosity

Someone else googled and found it in this shop.

Please can you lot email the shop? I have sent an email explaining why they need to remove it from their stock. Can you lot too?

Really great response. They should be on the weekly roundup / Mumsnet recommends, I think!

tigerlilygrr Thu 28-Feb-13 13:08:07

Great response from little timbers. Really pleased with this result. On another note, I've never seen the feminist board before, I will be back!

TheDoctrineOfSciAndNatureClub Thu 28-Feb-13 14:06:49

Well done all!

MrsMushroom Thu 28-Feb-13 14:22:28

Oooh that's bloody brilliant!

Shaky Thu 28-Feb-13 14:39:29

Good work Mumsnetters! Well done!

Aww, I've just seen this thread - what a great result.

Darkesteyes Thu 28-Feb-13 17:41:24

Well done everyone. Fantastic result.

great thread! heartening responses from the retailers.
I've just come from another (quickly deleted, well done MNHQ) thread where a troll was putting forward his "rapes are mostly false reports" ideology.

this has cheered me up.

EduCated Thu 28-Feb-13 20:45:19

Great result smile Well done those sites! Now for the rest...

Still on sale here and www.fabandfunky.co.uk/acatalog/when-a-lady.html and at an extortionate price shock

PromQueenWithin Thu 28-Feb-13 22:23:24

I emailed both those retailers this morning, but no response from them so far...

Good work all.

The quote is from Lord Denning! He said it in 1982. It is quite chilling that a senior English judge could feel comfortable making such a statement only 30 years ago. You/we can never be too complacent about standing up to such statements.

Lessthanaballpark Thu 28-Feb-13 23:48:08

Oh I've just come to this thread - I'm so impressed by the activism and the result - smile

Can't believe it is from Lord Denning - actually if they put it on the plaque that it was a quote by a senior judge that would actually show how awful it was.

CardinalRichelieu Thu 28-Feb-13 23:54:23

Denning was a bit crazy. He just randomly invented bits of law. The senior judiciary tend to be about 30 years behind the rest of us (a few exceptions).

But yes, go us.

I've had a response from Daisy Interiors, I've put it on the original thread.

I'm not impressed.

sashh Fri 01-Mar-13 05:50:42

I've just read the positive replies on here.

I've posted them on Daisy Interiors facebook page - not sure how long they will be there.

BubblegumPie Fri 01-Mar-13 15:50:35

Aww, I'm only just reading this now, well done everyone!

gutted I didn't get to send any angry emails

EduCated Fri 01-Mar-13 19:28:52

WhenTheRed Are you sure? I thought I'd found quite an old(er) reference to it, but I may be wrong.

EduCated Fri 01-Mar-13 19:30:09

Also, had this response from The Design Company smile

Ok, I have inside info. I've namechanged because I'm a coward.

Homeworks is a generic label name for products commissioned and imported by a UK company that then sells them wholesale to gift shops.

Their email is sales.enquiries@hill-interiors.com

You didn't hear it from me.

TheDoctrineOfSciAndNatureClub Fri 01-Mar-13 21:26:47

Bubblegum, if your angry email fingers are itching, Amazon might want to hear from you with this not-so-charming rape variation on the Keep Calm theme.

Ta SS.

ediblewoman Fri 01-Mar-13 21:36:05

Oh god doctrine, I think I am going to be sick. That is terrifying.

dummad Fri 01-Mar-13 21:36:13

is that for real Doctrine - that T shirt on Amazon? That is truly sick.

ediblewoman Fri 01-Mar-13 21:43:23

I just searched for it and yes, it is real. I have asked Amazon to instruct the seller to remove it from sale.
