Our bodies are not for sale…


Beauty Queens

Our bodies are not for sale, or maybe they are, but that really isn’t the point.

One of the joys of the daily London commute is the wonderful free papers; the content is exceptionally entertaining. Sometimes, however, there is the odd story that bemuses me, like this one.

No-one is forcing these young women to take part in this competition, so what is all the fuss about? Why do some people have a problem with young women dressing up and having, some sort of, fun?

Not for Sale

I wonder if the only reason this particular woman is complaining is because she didn’t make the final?

Please can you go and make your protest in a small, dark, uncomfortable place where the rest of us with at least a molecule of sense can’t see or hear you so that we can actually enjoy life?

Thank you!

    The trick is to have Gok Wan presenting it, or Trinny and Susannah… then it’s called “female empowerment” rather than “misogynist”.
