"Many of our supporters would be shocked to find out that Etsy is not only selling their craft items and handmade items, but they have decided not to remain family-friendly as far as an online store and website," says Monica Cole, director of One Million Moms. "Now they're selling adult-themed merchandise like you would find in a fantasy store."

According to an alert 1MM sent out to its supporters, Etsy's adult-themed offerings include graphic nude photos, "sex toys," and posters depicting couples engaged in sex. "It is disgusting that Etsy has made this decision," says the alert.

Adult-themed merchandise aside, Cole is concerned that someone may inadvertently stumble upon the images "because there is no warning whatsoever … and there's nothing left to the imagination – it's full pornography."

The petition from One Million Moms urges Etsy to return to its roots and original policies by asking that it sell only clean, family-friendly items – and third-party items only if vintage.

"We're also asking Etsy to remove all the pornographic images from their website immediately," Cole concludes.
