Our advertising world portray our society is a sexual society, but a perverse sexual society, everything comes advertised with sexual overtones, from alcohol to coffee, from clothes to cars, all come with a hint of sexual stimulation, but never any form of sexual gratification. To our advertising world, women are sexual tools to sell products, and men are made to look “sexy”, but it is all a hands off sexual world, always stimulation, never gratification. That gratification has to take place in the shadows, where the phoney stimulation's promise can never quite materialise, and often manifests itself in sexual abuse. From a very early age, that babbling brook of bullshit, the mainstream media, encourages young girls to look “pretty”, be attractive to men is the desired aim. Women, more than not, are portrayed as an attractive appendage to some successful male, the road to success for women is then seen as to be “attractive” and find a successful male. Any wonder that women are used and abused, the whole value structure is wrong. Nowhere in this phone world of empty sexual stimulation is there any hint of a real world of people as equals, with desires outside “looking attractive” and falling into the capitalist definition of "being successful". In this capitalist society, the world of advertising creates a world of manufactured desires, a world of frustration and insanity.
Guess what we are advertising??
Naked, Drunk, or isolated, We Are Not Prey.

This action is more of a stride in the never-ending path of our freedom from all oppressions. We clearly never repeat it enough; sexual assaults are not the isolated act of a dangerous individual who watches from an alley-way corner – but actually – if not a weapon, its often the threats and the correctional punishment, for all women who have taken part in rebellion in their life, or simply searching to exit the cage that is patriarchy. And its always the reflection of a world that envisages women as objects to submit.The media instrumentalises us to distil fear, in creating a need for security which should be urgently met, with ever more control over our lives, cameras, DNA profiling. They don’t seek to protect us, this discourse is to lure us in, to increase their domination.We don’t want to delegate our protection, but try to organise to defend ourselves, and attacking is one way to do that.
