Walmart Checkout Lines Remove Racy Magazine

Walmart has decided to remove Cosmopolitan magazine from its checkout lines going forward to keep what it calls “sexually explicit material” out of the hands of children.

The magazine will still be available in Walmart stores but will be shelved in the store’s regular magazine racks rather than at checkout lines where children could pick it up and read it, The Wrap reported.

The move comes after lobbying group the National Center on Sexual Exploitation said it found the content to be inappropriate for shoppers, especially children.

The organization took credit for Walmart’s decision, saying in a statement, “Protecting minors from the sexually explicit material that Cosmopolitan embodies and perpetuates has been a long term priority of NCOSE,” The Wrap reported.

“You can go through and buy your groceries with your family knowing you won’t have to be exposed to this graphic and often degrading and offensive material,” NCOSE Vice President of Advocacy and Outreach Haley Halverson said.

Good. I always cover trashy magazines when I see them. I wish Royal Farms would get rid of their porn section.....eye level with every child walking by.

Good. I hate having that trash put in my face where I have to stand and wait. And I have spent many years trying to dodge it when I had a young child with me.

Thank you Walmart.

OMG! A child might see a naked boobie! This country's fear of nudity is so nuts! In England, they put boobie pix in the newspapers.

I'm offended by the yearly Weather almanac in checkout isles. Telling me when it'll snow and their conspiracies with grocery and hardware stores. Bread/Milk/ToiletPaper/bottle water alert crawls across the television screens. Then hazy/hot/humid days during the summer, whereas we must conserve electricity/AC or Delmarva Power will have rolling blackouts!
