OK just a bit of fluff before getting all serious again. Anyway, sometimes it is kinda nice to see women as they really mostly are, as opposed to the professional models and actresses.
Ah, just to be fair for once.
Ladies, there might be something for you as well, at the link for this article. I said ‘might’ cos I can never be sure.
Do women gape at men at much as we drool over women? Might but perhaps more subtle?
The nude calendar for charity is a bit overdone, but it gives guys another excuse to look cos after all, it’s for charity.
Don’t matter what it’s for, feminists do NOT want us looking. Boo-hoo.
‘We’re just raising money for charity’: Female rower who stripped for naked calendar defends herself from feminist blogger’s attack
By Ruth Styles
A student who stripped for a charity calendar has hit back at critics who claim posing naked is tacky and damaging to the feminist cause.
Hettie Reed, a student at Warwick University, pictured second left in the picture below, said that singling out women is ‘grossly unfair’, adding that her rowing club’s charity calendar was ‘not about being part of some kind of watered down pornography.’
The rowing club calendar, which Hettie helped organise, is being sold to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support, which was chosen because one of the rowing team’s mothers is suffering from the disease.

The offending calendar isn’t the first produced by the University of Warwick rowing club either.
The boy’s team have produced naked calendars for the past four years, even creating a behind the scenes video called ‘Brokeback Boatroom’.
But while the boys’ effort has made a significant contribution to charity after being singled out by comedian Stephen Fry and singer, Boy George, the girls’ first calendar has come under fire from self-described feminists and Hettie is furious.
‘There are some sad people out there and it’s a waste of time to criticise people for making a charity calendar,’ she told MailOnline.
‘The calendar was done in a non-tacky, tasteful way - if you look at the images, they are actually nice pictures, naked or not.
‘I do believe that women deserve equality and in my eyes, if the men of our rowing club are able to make a naked calendar we should have the right to do the same thing without [receiving] derogatory and slanderous comments - that is what equality is about.’
Hettie’s comments came in the wake of a blog on the Huffington Post website, which attacked Hettie and her friends, and said they had put the feminist cause back.
Layla Haidrani, a student at the University of Kent who describes herself as a commentator on feminist issues, wrote: ‘Groups of women posing semi-naked on a field with sticks doesn’t sound a fundraising initiative for charity, it just sounds tacky,’
‘Although many argue that it is purely for fundraising purposes, in my own university sports team, the majority of women who participated were not made aware and did not even seek to find out which charities were being helped.
‘Rather, they just view it as an opportunity to strip and attempt to gain notoriety with friends and family both back home and on campus.’
She continued: ‘I can’t help but feel that women are just victims in the ‘liberation game,
‘As opposed to being liberated by posing semi-naked, they are in fact just helping women to be perpetually viewed as sex objects, something to be ‘bought’, ‘sold’ and then tossed away once the Christmas period is over.
But Heidrani, says Hettie, has got the wrong end of the stick.
‘These naked calendars do make money for some fantastic charities and so what really is the harm in them?’ she asked.
‘We do have some good looking girls in there but our calendar isn’t necessarily sexy and it certainly isn’t demeaning.
Actually, the article is interesting and once again the femanazis take it upon themselves to declare what a women should and should not do. They make the agenda, they decide for everyone what is and what to think. Who elected her or any one person to decide for all, what is proper and not proper in this calendar debate?
Layla Haidrani is a history student at University of Kent, Canterbury. Raised in Camden, she is a commentator on feminist issues and international politics affairs and defines herself as a passionate socialist.
Perhaps Ms. Haidrani would prefer women to cover up. Like this?
Unless you’ve got a Camden over there, learning that Ms. Hadriani is from Camden over here tells me volumes, especially given her course of study and her political leanings.
Besides, it was my understanding that it was perfectly fine for women to exploit themselves for money, but it’s now only bad when somebody else does it. Thus we have porn stars becoming celebrities, prostitute pride (but pimps are bad), and all sorts of pretty and curvy young lovelies leaping onto the casting couch to try and hump themselves a movie career. Not to mention the infinite amount of “amateur” porn, modeling, and “self-shot” pics out on the internet, cellphones, etc.
So where does this bee-otch Hadriani get off?
She’s self appointed Drew. Follows in the long standing tradition of ppl on the left.
Drew, yes. London Borough of Camden.
Before the age of the automobile Canoeing was the preferred method of “wooing” your girl in a private setting.
Ah, the days of going Motorboat Motorboat.
Stop that Grandpa!
Damn, Gramps must have had some mad skillz. All those layers of clothes AND in a canoe. Tippy things, them canoes is. But from where else do you think we got ....
