IKEA IS PANDERING TO MISOGYNISTS
Is anybody else tired of “respecting” other people’s religions even when it means demeaning and insulting women? And to think we always had such a high opinion of Ikea! It has been revealed by the Stockholm paper Metro, that ALL WOMEN have been deleted from the Ikea catalog for Saudi Arabia! Every image of a female – including a photo of Audrey Hepburn was edited OUT. Ikea is in the habit of tailoring catalogs for each country to appeal to local taste and cultural standards but THIS is too much. When confronted with this insult to women, an Ikea rep gulped and admitted the move is “in conflict with company values and Ikea is reviewing its procedures.” No kidding.
UPDATE: This morning Star Jones said she didn’t see anything wrong with what Ikea did.
