No just curious about why everyone's excited about a rich guy touching a girl's arse when years roll by and nothing gets done about the genuine abuse of girls a mile down the road in Soho or in almost every other town and city.
I'm guessing I must have missed that social comment from your post, Shaun.

It's ridiculous, how are lasses who are blessed with beauty instead of brains supposed to earn a good living. From what I hear most regular women don't even agree with this prudish attitude. Twitter moral minority and their big gobs again.

As for that Presidents club business.... Have they ever seen how a group of women behave when the male strippers come on! Undercover reporters and no girls pressing any charges, that outraged woman MP even referred to them as 'bait'.... absolute stitch up.
I shall bow out now before you all turn it into some rant about immigration.

There is nothing wrong with using beautiful women to promote an event. It's how they are treated, that's the issue. I have never seen men trying to grab Daniella Allfree, or make sing "get your tits out for the lads"

If it's Sky's doing, then they are bloody hypocrites. Just look at the women on SSN - how many of them are munters?

I know two young women who work in Sports Promotion, darts, boxing and formula 1.

They are seriously annoyed and worried about their careers due to PC gone mad and what looks like a witch hunt against men. Their words not mine.

At the moment they are making a very good living plus nice hotels, expenses, contacts and travel.

Obviously they work in male dominated areas but seemed more than happy with the way they are treated. They said most of the problems they had experienced was from female bosses they had to deal with.

Not sure where this PC rubbish is going to end but if I was an employer then I might think twice about employing women.

The Non-Feminist Notion that Walk-On Girls are People Too.
by Elizabeth Hobson

“Darts is the sport in which small missiles are thrown at a circular dartboard fixed to a wall.” According to Wikipedia, it’s a British game- like archery but without the bow. Walk-on girls are a traditional accompaniment to the main event, escorting players to the stage, looking pretty and infusing some glamour into the proceedings. As of the 27th January 2018, the Professional Darts Corporation have banned the practice after pressure from I.T.V. (commercial television network in the U.K.) and various authoritarian do-gooders, including the world number one player Michael van Gerwen (“Not that there is criticism, but darts is ready for a next step.”) and The Women’s Sport Trust (“We applaud the Proffessional Darts Coroporatin moving with the times and deciding to no longer use walk-on-girls. Motor racing, boxing and cycling… your move.”). Darts girls themselves are launching defensive manoeuvres. One explained to BBC radio that she believes her rights “are being taken away” and another took to Twitter to lament that “this has just got out of hand… We choose to work because we want to.” Whilst a petition is marching its way steadily past its target of 25,000, which it will undoubtedly surpass by a great margin.

This is a #MeToo moment of feminist aggression into a non-feminist sector where a vocal minority dictates what choices other women are allowed to make. It is reprehensible. Feminist, Meghan Tyler notoriously ponificated “No, feminism is not about choice” and critiqued “the notion that “choice” should be the ultimate arbiter of women’s freedom.” And here we have the proof. This feminist omniscience about what is appropriate for individual women betrays a grandiose conceit that cares nothing for the well-being of women and everything for an ideology. What moral superiority lies in feminism to warrant this authoritarian level of control over societies? Feminists are human just like everybody else, subject to moral failings, and apparently vicious jealousy… The feminist disdain for women who make the ‘wrong choices’ is the clearest, most prominent and accepted form I can think of, of misogyny in our society. Judgemental phrases like “sacks of flesh” are being used by feminists to describe the walk-on girls amid claims that other girls will be put off competing in the game as they’ll see their only possible role being providing decoration. Purlease.

At the same time as women like Vida Mohaved are going missing under-arrest for removing their hijabs in Iran, the best that we can do for our women is remove their choice to live autonomously and fabulously? By all accounts these women are loved and cherished at their place of work. So, they land these gigs and appeal to the mainly male fan-base largely due to their beauty- they keep their jobs and their fans based on their personalities, something it’s reasonable to assume that most feminists would find impossible to relate to. Our civilisation rocks in large part because our women are free.

Once, the push for civil liberties was a project of the pro-feminist left. Now, non-feminist “conservatism is the conservation of liberal values” (Bill Whittle) and mans the front line of women’s emancipation. Is it any wonder that Donald Trump has just confirmed that he’s “not a feminist… that would be, maybe, going too far” and Ivanka has distanced herself from the movement. We’re at the forefront of a rising cultural tide and feminism is thrashing about in the water going through death throes. The establishment is always behind the general population and feminism still holds significant power and influence but its days are numbered, it’s losing the culture war and women will be liberated from it.

Non-feminism: the radical notion that walk-on girls are people too.

I saw the debate on This Morning today

Charlotte and Daniella were joined by an outspoken feminist, and summed up my experiences of "feminists"

They are basically one of 2 things

A) Not attracted to men
B) Not attractive to men

Perhaps the dictionary definition of "Feminist" should be ........a woman who doesn't get much cock, either through choice, or circumstance

No more grid girls on F1 ?

WTF. That's my sky subscription going down the toilet then.

On that note I am off to my private members club for a pint and fondles.
