D.C. Metro says “no” to religious ads, “yes” to homosexual hookup ads.

Yesterday, on the way home from the park with my son, I discovered that the D.C. Metro is currently promoting inappropriate homosexual “hookup” ads.

The following ad was displayed on large canvases in multiple places throughout the Dupont Circle Metro Station:

The ad immediately caught my eye, and I noticed several other commuters stop to gawk at it in disbelief.

Not only does the advertised website encourage homosexual hookups and video chats, it also provides an avenue for interested customers to find a “casual” sexual encounter in a public place, such as a bar or a public restroom. This activity, commonly known as “cruising,” invites criminal activity such as indecent exposure and illegal prostitution.

I already sent a letter of complaint to the D.C. Metro Board, but I need your help. Alone, my voice will likely be ignored, but together, our voices can make a difference. Help me work to get this ad removed and ensure that the D.C. Metro is a place where all customers feel comfortable.

When you sign this petition, the text of your letter will be sent directly to the head of Metro advertising and the Chair of the Metro Board.

Tell the D.C. Metro to stop subjecting their customers - especially children and adolescents - to morally corrupt, sexually deviant, and inappropriate advertising. The Metro should not allow these sexually explicit ads to be openly displayed while they wrongly enforce a blanket ban against religious sentiments.

Thank you!

Sincerely,

Caroline Craddock

Request to remove homosexual hookup ad

Dear D.C. Metro Board and Advertising Committee,

I am writing to express my shock and displeasure at discovering that you are currently promoting an inappropriate homosexual hookup ad in the Metro System.

This complaint refers specifically to the advertisement for “Squirt.org,” a so-called homosexual hookup website. This advertisment is posted in multiple places in the Dupont Circle Red Line Station, and is likely found in other stations throughout the city. You can view a copy of the ad by following this link

Not only does the advertised website encourage homosexual hookups and video chats, it also provides an avenue for interested customers to find a “casual” hookup partner in a public place, such as a bar or a public restroom. This activity, commonly known as “cruising,” often leads to illegal prostitution and indecent exposure charges. By posting this advertisement, the D.C. Metro is facilitating illegal activity and exposing young people to sexually explicit content .

Last year, the Metro Board banned all religious advertising in the Metro System. Religious advertising is usually uplifting, encouraging, and moral. There should not be a blanket ban on all religious advertisements. To the contrary, advertisements such as this one are morally corrupt and encourage dangerous and illegal activities.

Stop subjecting your customers - especially children and adolescents - to this inappropriate sexual advertising, and please issue an apology to all of your customers who have already been affected by this advertisement.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
