    You're not too good at this debating lark, are you?
    Maybe not but I'm not going to let that stop me from getting my point across. Also it's comments like this that make me want to debate more

    It's not so much that you not being good at debating is stopping you from getting your point across, it's more that the point you're trying to get across is falling down flat in the debate. You seem to be trying to have a different debate to the rest of the people in the thread. Without realising.

    Well considering I'm relating my points with the thread I don't see how my points are falling flat.

    Magazines are mostly for entertainment. Unless it's like tech magazine, in which you wouldn't see overly sexual images of women because it isn't the place for that. And there are adult magazines merely for porn, not information, and that way the lines are not blurred and can not be crossed either way. Most importantly adult magazines are not easily accessible to minors (as The Sun is).

    There isn't 1 sole purpose for the internet. What are you using the internet for as you are typing your reply? It certainly, without a doubt isn't to inform.

    Books? Ch I haven't got time for this.

    Books, magazines and the internet are not published for the sole purpose of information, as newspapers are. There is nothing inherently inappropriate about sexualising women in any of these platforms. I'm sorry but you are wrong and you need to wrap your head around this.

    Thing is, I look at the stars of old in particular and they were that... stars. They were celebrated and loved. Page 3 definitely had a heyday and it has passed. Now it's just 'Whomever, 19, from Kent'. It's not your Lusardis or Mizzis or Russells or Johnsons. They managed to be naked, classy and enduring. Screw whatever the feminists say - I might have lusted after them but I also genuinely respected and admired them. That's something the comfortable shoe brigade will never understand.

    The irony, the real irony, is that the world is awash with hard-core porn and girls having to up the ante to get noticed, and yet the feminists see this as a victory.

    The feminists complaining about page 3 are just fugly trollops, who are jealous that some women out there are not insecure and are beautiful and confident about their body.
    The reason why women are insecure and lack confidence in their bodies is because of the constant bombardment of photoshopped and airbrushed women who do not represent "real women".

    And yet the sun did use real women. No fake breast allowed.

    Some of the most shocking examples of what youre talking about are magazines written by women for women.

    Going by that logic, a lot of what is reported in the tabloids and other newspapers is also inappropriate.

    I often see stories in the Telegraph, Evening Standard or the Times reporting celebrity gossip. Is that really appropriate when I have paid money to be informed not to receive tittle tattle about Evgeny Lebedev, Elton John or Pippa Middleton?
    Ikr!! I agree.
    (Original post by B-FJL3)
    Even if, by some hypothetical objective standard, it is not newsworthy, you have not explained why it is inappropriate to have porn and information in the same publication?
    Mostly because The Sun is easily accessible to minors. But I don't think this needs explaining.
    (Original post by B-FJL3)
    That surely depends entirely on the tone of the publication, which in the Sun's case is often cheekily irreverent, as evidenced by its penchant for a rather laboured pun on the front page.

    Well then that should tell you something about how the editors now wish to brand their publication. Change is good!

    Their body shapes do not represent the average (young) women of the UK and far too over-sexualised with perfect blemish-free bodies. Page 3 models act as if the women are always sexually available and "wanting it". Page 3 was traditionally a business where the customer pays for the image of the topless woman on their phones leading to this skewed subconscious view of women and their bodies . Overall, it is society (which traditionally and still generally male-dominated) has created these ideals of what women look like but more recently is seen in the sexual objectification of men.

    Most protests seemed based on this notion of objectification as wrong, which is nonsense given that everyone is objectified at some point in their daily life. For example every time a shop assistant gives you a sales pitch they are technically objectifying you as a tool to boost their sales for the month and get a bonus... every time a girl is horny and drags her boyfriend into bed that is objectifying him too. It happens to us all so who cares?
    fff. You know what, let's just stop right there. We are clearly not gonna get anywhere with this.

    Not appropriate for a tabloid.



    Oh there is a page for that? I must have missed it.



    And 99.9% of the time, they are actually modelling an item. Generally underwear if they are halfnaked...

    Not really. Look at that Coke advert where the women role the coke down the hill so the man's shirt gets soaked and he has to take it off. Or the advert where the women steal the man's clothes so he has to walk through naked. Etc etc...


    (Original post by Truths)
    Of course it matters. Newspapers are created to inform, not for porn, thus Page 3 is innapropriate. It's not rocket science???
    Nobody reads the Sun for news. It is below even the Mirror and the Mail

    Not really. I was worried the thread would be removed or I would get carded. The Sun is a bit different to TSR... see if you can work out why

    Again not really. TSR and the Sun do not have the same rules as the Sun. I would be against porn being put on this site. If they want it in the sun then they can

    So you think a "pair of t***ies" is worth censoring sometimes, but not always?
