feminazis on the march

Feminazis are alive (unfortunately) and quite well apparently. Look what some are up to now.

Over here, girly magazines are referred to as Lad’s Mags.  I’m not referring to porn but you know the stuff on the shelves in convenience stores and even some markets. Heck, Playboy would be a lad’s mag too.
But mostly, the gripe is with the scantily clad busty models that adorn these periodicals.

Well step forward a new group of hard faced, graceless loons, some who are lawyers, and they want these mags off the shelves.
Being lawyers of course you know even if a case is tossed out of court, they can I suppose still cause some grief.  But they are on a mission and they will determine what is and is not harassment.

How about the models? Are they harassed?

Shops selling ‘lads’ mags’ with covers of featuring scantily-clad women, could be sued for sexual harassment by their own customers and staff, feminist groups have claimed.

Now I have no idea how they arrive at that. You do not have to take a job where girly mags are sold. And as for harassment well …. How ya gonna prove that?

But these types of left wing lunatics unfortunately have a voice and too often they can force their brand of politically correct behavior on the majority of people.  What really amazes me I must say, is that nobody targets them.  We never hear of a hit made on them or an acid bath or anything like it.  And so they go about their happy intrusive way deciding for other what is and will be.

Don’t ya just hate the bastards?

Here, let me introduce you to Kat Banyard, founder of UK Feminista.
Whew, what a face. 

Stop selling raunchy lads’ mags or your customers and staff will sue, supermarkets warned

Pressure groups UK Feminista and Object have launched the Lose the Lads’ Mags campaign

They say displaying publications or requiring staff to handle them could amount to sexual harassment

By Daily Mail Reporter

Shops selling ‘lads’ mags’ with covers of featuring scantily-clad women, could be sued for sexual harassment by their own customers and staff, feminist groups have claimed.

Campaigners are warning high street retailers to remove magazines that display naked and near-naked images on their covers or face the risk of legal action.

The Lose the Lads’ Mags campaign, by pressure groups UK Feminista and Object, says displaying publications in stores or requiring staff to handle such magazines could amount to sex discrimination or sexual harassment.

In a letter in the Guardian today, 11 equal rights lawyers say there have been previous cases of staff suing employers in respect to exposure to pornographic material at work, and called on retailers to stop selling ‘lads’ mag’ publications.

‘High-street retailers are exposing staff and, in some cases, customers to publications whose handling and display may breach equality legislation,’ the letter said.Displaying lads’ mags and pornographic papers in ‘mainstream’ shops results in the involuntary exposure of staff and, in some cases, customers to pornographic images.

Kat Banyard, founder of UK Feminista, believes supermarkets have got off the hook for too long

‘Every mainstream retailer which stocks lads’ mags is vulnerable to legal action by staff and, where those publications are visibly on display, by customers.’

The group says it has been contacted by employees who dislike handling such magazines but who feel they have no power to take the issue up with their employers.

UK Feminista and Object are discussing with lawyers about bringing a test case and will support employees who are uncomfortable with images of naked or near-naked women on magazines, the Guardian said.

Kat Banyard, founder of UK Feminista, told the newspaper: “For too long supermarkets have got off the hook, stocking lad’s mags in the face of widespread opposition, but this time we have the law on our side.

Every shop that sells lads’ mags - publications which are deeply harmful to women - are opening themselves up to legal action.”

Sophie Bennett, campaigns officer for Object, added:  ‘Lads’ mags dehumanise and objectify women, promoting harmful attitudes that underpin discrimination and violence against women and girls.

Reducing women to sex objects sends out an incredibly dangerous message that women are constantly sexually available and displaying these publications in everyday spaces normalizes this sexism.’

  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
