Police swoop on landlord for organising an ‘ugliest woman’ competition.

In my previous post I mentioned ISIMS. I forgot one til I saw this article on line tonight. Wasn’t even looking for it.
Just shows you the sick, confused PC world we have.  The ‘isim’ in this case is, sexism. What a dumb sounding word. Like all the other isims.
Now this really is just plain dumb. Why in the world would the police respond to call like this? 
Beyond that, the scary part are the words below. The police allowed.  Does that imply they could have just as easily stopped this bit of harmless nonsense?

Police swoop on landlord for organising an ‘ugliest woman’ competition

Unknown complainant reported Glasgow pub for sexism

When police arrived at the venue they allowed the competition to go ahead this Sunday

By Sara Malm

A pub holding a competition to find the ‘Ugliest Woman’ got a visit from the police after someone reported them for sexism.

An unknown complainant demanded the competition be cancelled and wanted the owners of Islay Inn prosecuted.

However, when police arrived at the Glasgow venue they gave manager George Hogg the go ahead after discovering it was, in fact, a competition for men dressed as women.

Mr Hogg told of his disbelief of the complaint and accused the protestor of being ‘over the top with political correctness.’

He said: ‘I have no idea who made the complaint and the police wouldn’t tell me - but if he or she had bothered to read the advert properly, they would have realised that it was not ugly women we were looking for - but ugly men dressed up as women.

‘The first we knew of a potential problem was when two female officers from Maryhill Police Station came into the bar on Thursday night.

‘They told me they had received a complaint about us holding a competition to find the ugliest woman in the bar and that it might constitute some kind of sexist offence.

‘But when I pointed out the facts, the policewomen were clearly amused and quickly told me the matter would go no further.’

Mr Hogg added: ‘It was a totally over the top reaction by whoever went to the bother of reporting us - political correctness gone mad!’

The event was advertised on the Facebook page of the pub, located in the city’s Kelvingrove area.

Earlier today the page was updated to clear up the ‘misunderstanding’ regarding the ‘Ugliest Woman’ competition, which is set to go ahead on Sunday.

The Islay Inn apologised for causing any offense adding: ‘Just so it’s clear to all, our ugly women will be men dressed as women, beard stubble and all.’

The pub offers a £50 cash prize for the ugliest ‘woman’ and in the spirit of equality, the ‘bonniest’ woman dressed as a man will receive a bottle of vodka.

The posting attracted several comments from customers, saying a competition for ugly men would not have been met with the same reaction.

Andrew Parr wrote: ‘Ridiculous getting the police involved. Some people are pathetic.

Mark McCarrick added: ‘As if our overstretched police service haven’t got enough to do without being bothered by some silly complaint.

‘I bet the silly fart wouldn’t have moaned had it been an ugly man competition.

‘Get yourself a life whoever you are, its a bit of fun in these dark and gloomy times!’

So among other things, what is wrong here?  There is ya know. What’s wrong is this.

“The Islay Inn apologised for causing any offense”

Why?  What’s the point? That’s as bad as the wanker who called to gripe. And just one complaint?
That’s another thing wrong with the world. Or at least the western part of same.  Too damn quick to say sorry even when it isn’t needed.
It sure isn’t needed here but they did anyway.

The very idea that their silly competition as the cops put it, “might constitute some kind of sexist offence,” is alone an outrage. Under what circumstance could holding a goofy competition like this constitute anything worthy of police interest?

  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.
