Feminists Claim Page 3 Victory

It’s a strange one this, I agree that in 2015 it might be a bit ‘old hat’ to have a topless girl on Page 3 but it is kind of an institution and many women have launched modelling careers of the back of it.  Equally it’s not too bad being a man flicking through the paper and seeing a beautiful girl on Page 3, after all most men like boobs.

The interesting thing today on my Twitter timeline has been the reaction, all negative, to the supposed end of Page 3 in The Sun.  And the negativity has been in the majority from females.  Some models, some just ‘normal’ women, and a few men have voiced their annoyance.  What I haven’t seen is anyone celebrating the end of Page 3.

This in itself leads me to believe that Feminists don’t actually represent women (on this issue anyway).  Ok, I don’t follow that many people so my sample size is small, but still, I have seen no happiness with the Page 3 ban.

Feminists don’t represent all women, or even fight for the rights of all women.  Feminists represent Feminists – and they don’t mind using over the top tactics to do so.

It seems to me that the girls on Page 3 are making money from their chosen career path and are happy doing so.  It’s their choice.  It is very anti-feminist for a group of women to take this choice away from them.
