The UK, and London in particular has had a lot of knife-attacks this year, many against young people, many resulting in death. Because of this, a Facebook application that allows users to 'knife' eachother virtually has been pulled off the site.
"Anti-knife crime campaigners condemned the application, details of which emerged barely a week after the British Crime Survey found that more than 350 knife crime offences were being committed in the country every day. In London, 21 teenagers have been killed this year - the majority the victims of stabbings."
Yet the 'All men are bastards' knifeblock, a model of a man with knifes stuck through his body which is described as being funny, is still on sale at places like 'IWantOneOfThose.com'
Remember, if a similar item was made depicting any other group (i.e. the 'all women are bitches' knifeblock, or the 'all blacks are asking for it' knifeblock, it would be banned in no time at all.)
I decided to email one of the people working at the companies that sell this knifeblock:

Are you really comfortable promoting this product which treats knifing men as funny?
Even if you find it funny, you may find the tide of opinion turning against you as knife crime takes ever more young men's lives. e.g. see what happened here:
