Sandsack in Männerform aus Verkauf zurückgezogen

Der britische Guardian berichtet:

The high street chemist Superdrug has withdrawn a women's boxing set from sale today after complaints from a support group for male victims of domestic violence. The ManKind Initiative told the store its man-shaped inflatable punchbag encouraged women to hit men. (…) The Hers Boxing Set comes in pink packaging and contains a man-shaped punchbag and a pair of boxing gloves. ManKind Initiative said owners were encouraged to insert photos of a man for the punchbag's face. A picture on the product packaging shows an arrow pointing to a man's groin, saying "kick him here". Mark Brooks, chairman of The ManKind Initiative, said the fact that Superdrug did not sell a similar product for men suggested domestic violence against men was more acceptable.
