Avert Thine Eyes

RECEIVED Tue., Sept. 2, 2014

Dear Editor,
    I have been a reader of your newspaper since high school, and am now a married woman and mom. I've loved perusing the events and happenings of my city through your paper, but have known since the beginning of my readership to just avoid the section after the music listings. I am not thrilled that I now have to dart my eyes away from seeing the Adult Services ads as I look at the music listings – like a porn pop-up on my computer. Why have you decided that an industry based on lust, addiction, and infidelity must no longer be confined to one section of your publication? Has there been a consensus that the Chronicle is not liberal enough? I am not asking for the removal of these ads, but I would ask that they stay confined to a section of the Chronicle for only those looking for such services. The Week just reported the cost of prostitution is going down because the service has become so readily available, and so I wonder why do we as a culture continue to place these prolific images closer to the public's eye? Please, for the sake of some caliber of honor in your readership, keep the adult ads contained to a section that can be avoided, if desired.
