Letter: Violent bias

Sir: Suzanne Moore (article, 12 December) takes a dim view, no doubt rightly, of posters for The Prodigy's single "Smack My Bitch Up" which would appear to encourage violence against women. She is scornful of attempts to defend this marketing ploy on the grounds of it being just a bit of ironic fun.

As for adverts which portray and encourage violence against men (14 November) - well, these are "a cheeky giggle" and there are not "anything like enough of them".

Sexual equality? I just don't get it.
