Er, Etsy is allowing seller “youstupidbitch” to offer cards that “display the picture, but it’s worse than you think, depicting a naked woman huddled in the shower with the tagline, “Congratulations, you got bad touched.”” Read more about it here at the Daily Kos.
The vendor claims the card could be ironically give to someone who’s been through an airport pat-down or something, but again: the vendor’s name is YouStupidBitch. It’s very clear exactly what these cards are about.
Oh, but just in case that doesn’t convince you:
UPDATE: The same user on Etsy also sells cards that “congratulate” breast cancer patients and mock mothers of special needs children. Tell Etsy to remove all of these cards ASAP!
But the good news is, that “convince you” link goes to a petition to tell Etsy that having “no control over the quality, safety, morality or legality of any aspect of the items listed” doesn’t exonerate them from needing to disconnect this seller’s account or something.
For what it’s worth, no website can ever really claim zero responsibility for what’s on their servers. Hopefully, Etsy will feel the pressure and realize this is not just tacky and irresponsible. It’s hate speech.
