to whom it may concern-

your most current issue of city on a hill press presented a very controversial picture on the cover. the title of the issue is "getting off" – and it depicts a white female touching herself, indicating sexual activity. after reading the article and finding that it’s main point is females taking their sexuality into their own hands, i found that the cover picture did not match the topic at all. instead of empowering women, your cover simply promotes the subordination and sexualization of women. this is a faceless woman, who is objectified – i find that this disagrees with the message that you are attempting to convey.

i believe that in order to stop promoting such objectification within our society, we must start at the source. as your newspaper is a source of media, i felt it necessary to voice my opposition to it.

i appreciate your time,
