Marsh Supermarkets now has a Cosmo-free checkout.

Marsh Supermarkets—a chain of produce markets and convenience stores with 72 locations in Indiana and Ohio—has committed to keep Cosmopolitan magazine out of the direct sight of its customers and to remove it from their checkout lane magazine stands.

Within the magazine section of Marsh Supermarkets, Cosmo has been placed behind other magazines that act as blinders so that children and adults alike will not be unintentionally exposed to this sexually toxic magazine. By doing this, Marsh Supermarkets has displayed exemplary corporate responsibility and commitment to the dignity and well-being of its customers.

What many people don’t realize is that Cosmopolitan is filled with explicit sexual material.

While it may not have many nude pictures, this publication has steadily declined from a somewhat inspirational women’s magazine to a verbally pornographic “how-to” sex guide. It routinely encourages and instructs its young readership to engage in group, risky, and violent sex, and to actively seek out pornography. No child, or adult for that matter, should be forced to view this material while shopping for groceries.

It’s time for other supermarkets to follow Marsh’s example and adopt a Cosmo-free checkout.

Due to its glamorization of pornography and explicit sexual content Cosmopolitan is a member of the 2016 Dirty Dozen List. You can learn more here: https://endsexualexploitation.org/cosmo/
