I would and have spoken to manger and asked if there was a better spot for them. Stating my reason why I thought it was a bad place and where would be a better place. I have had a roughly 80% tate of the manager saying yeah you got a point I will move them or I will think about it and than next time I have been in they have been moved. This was for a magazine or med at kids face height.

Wouldn't have bothered me. It is just a girl in a bikini after all.
As for it being in view of kids, no different to my kids seeing me in a bikini so my kids seeing it wouldn't bother me either.

I agree it's bad placement and definitely not an appropriate location to be placed. Would I have said anything? No, but that's because I don't have the b@lls to do so

I find it more interesting that people are happy with this image on a car mag?! This is a men's mag and has no place at a checkout. It's just about objectifying women it's also about girls ideas of how they should look. People keep on about how models are too thin ect yet because it's a car mag it's ok? Sick of the double standards and the expectation that car mags should be full of this stuff!

I probably wouldn't have said anything, but I do think it's a bit inappropriate. I don't have an issue with them selling these mags but the location is poorly considered.
I think it is different to my kids seeing me in a bikini or someone else lying lying on the beach, these models are in sexually suggestive poses. They don't need to see that, at least not until they are old enough to understand the context.

I wouldn't have noticed. And it doesn't bother me one bit.

Aren't all magazines at the supermarket boobie mags these days - every woman's day or who weekly usually has a bikini clad kardashian on the front cover!

Wwyd: Boobie magazine in supermarket
The message sent by the car magazine is much more obviously sinister. It takes the woman's day message that one step further - tells men women's bodies are something that don't necessarily need to be respected - that it's ok to use women as a disposable toy to play with alongside their cars. It is playing into the 'women are slags' phenomenon.
In short want to know why a girl has an eating disorder? Have a look at Women's Day. Wonder why on a night out a group of young men make a bet over who can shag the hottest chick, giving themselves high-5's at the end of it all... Have a look at the 'car' magazine.

Honestly some women walk around shopping centres showing more boob than that, it's sad that it's the way it is but boobs are everywhere!

Meh, they are boobs. Aren't we trying to normalize having breasts out in public re breastfeeding?
