Violence against women is violation of human rights.

From the Quanto?Project:


  1. Eeeew that "anything but sweet" one is grossing me ooooouuuut lol.

  2. If by "self tanner," they mean "Snow White in blackface," then sure.

    Cannibalism? Actually, that's beyond cannibalism! The mermaid is consuming HERSELF.

    And while I like that the women in the last ads seem to be in control of the situation, I don't like they seem to be using their sexuality to gain that control.

  3. Those are the two that bothered me the most Britni.

    Some of these you just look at and think WTF.

  4. i'd probaly want to (not really) become the people at the 37th, 38th, 39th, 41th, and 42th pictures.


What's on your mind?
