Kansas City, Mo. — One surefire way to get women to boycott a team is by promoting blatant misogyny.
The Kansas City Royals are partnering up with the Vitae Foundation, an organization known for is misogyny all across Kansas and Missouri. The group, as the women’s rights organization UltraViolet noted, is known for manipulating and lying to women who seek abortions, and promoting extreme anti-choice propaganda. Vitae’s deceptive ads are so grotesque that one Kansas City area radio station actually had the decency to do what is right – remove the ads and ban the group’s ads from its station.
However, that’s not stopping the Royals. The 2015 World Series champions have signed up to broadcast the Vitae ads at games and over the airwaves on as many as 59 radio stations.
Women who are fans of baseball are enraged over this and are already planning to boycott the Royals.
UltraViolet has a petition in an attempt to diffuse this situation, which threatens to get volatile.
