    But why? If a woman is willing to offer sex, or pictures of herself in return for money, then why shouldn't she be allowed to do that ? It doesn't effect anyone apart from those involved, and if they are all completely willing and up for it, then there is nothing wrong. Pictures of girls on page 3 is not demeaning in the slightest, they chose to be on it. What gives you the right to tell people what the can and cannot do when it doesn't effect you in the slightest. If you dont like it, then dont look at it, noone will force you, so dont force other people.
    Page 3 is just one of many things out there that encourages the sexual objectification of women. A woman's worth becomes based upon her body and not her mind and personality. It damages the moral fabric of society. Hence it should be banned. As I mentioned it has a social element so it does affect me and everyone else in society. They good of society should be placed before the desires of selfish individuals.

    Right to choose employment? Right to self expression?

    If page 3 was to be banned surely porn would have to be banned as well?


    And on the subject of bans, we should ban your mums fanny until she can control what came out of it :P

    Page 3 is just a soft form of prostitution. The woman gets money for doing a sexual service, in this case posing naked for a photo. I agree with OP. It should banned along with other forms of prostitution.

    However, thankfully, we live in a country which is free enough to see the stupidness of what you are suggesting. If you dont like it, dont look at it. Just dont deny the rest of the population their right to make their own decision. Personally, im not a big fan of some religions, yet i accept that others have the right to practice them aslong as it does not affect me directly. Similar situation here.

    I realise women can't just accept any sexual advance. However unlike your false belief that page 3 contributes to sex scrimes, there is proven evidense showing sexual rejection leads to sex crimes.
    So i just brought up a fact.

    I'd advise women not to be so callous when they turn down men, otherwise they might get raped. Frankly i think some of them deserve it.

    See how arrogant they are then.
    Someone obviously isn't getting any. Irrational little man.

    I saw it awhile ago, can't be bothered to look it up.

    Well a man is just a man, its society and women who develop his attitude to respect of women and whether he would rape or not.

    The fact a woman may turn him down in an offensive way will only lead to him being alienated from women.

    Regardless i'm sure you'd always say a woman is never to blame and consequently rape will continue occuring. Well done.
    Ay you are one nasty piece of work. Of course a woman is never to blame for an assault committed on her.

    What is all of this crap about women rejecting people in an offensive way anyway? There is no way you can link that to rape, the two are completely unrelated and if there was a link it can't be proven. Besides, in my experience it doesn't happen like that, I'm barely even sure what you are talking about, I've only seen someone being rejected in a nasty way if they are a complete creep and come across as the sort of person who would commit rape regardless. You have a pretty skewed view of modern society.

    Well that proves nothing, because it says charged with rape. Rapes committed by people the girl often knows via date rape or when they're drunk often don't lead to anyone getting charged.

    I think immigrants are more likely to do the ''grab you in an alley'' sort of rape. However the drunk at a aprty rape is more of a white guy thing.

    well, the fact still remains that nearly all charged rapes in Oslo were by immigrants. The facts are there in pretty simple terms. However what you are suggesting I see no evidence of at all. The way I see it is that if all charged rapes were by immigrants, then without immigrants you would have no charged rapes. Thus immigrants, yes, are the cause of rapes, in Oslo at least. (not that I agree we should get rid of immigration, im just making a point there)

    haha its this sort of attitude that leads to men who don't do well with women to become alienated from them and to potentially make them into a rapist.

    Don't worry though i don't do bad with ladies, although i can understand how guys get alienated from women.

    Alinate a person from another person and give them power over that person and bad things will happen.

    I'm not a nasty piece of work. Just a realist.

    You just see a rapist as some evil monster who was made in hell, whereas i look at society and the attitude of women to understand how a man could become alienated from women and to make an act like that.

    Then whats wrong with the sexual objectification of women who want to be sexually objectified. Sex appeal is a natural thing, people like seeing aesthetically pleasing people, just as you or me try to wear nice clothing etc, and dress up for parties, wear smart suits for interviews etc. The gals in the photos want to be photographed, and the people who read it want to see topless photos of girls. Does it affect anyone else bar those two groups of people? No.

    Personally i think some religions are the most damaging thing to society, yet I dont think they should be banned, as people have the right to participate in something that is largely innocent.

    Just page 3 lol?

    Young boys grow up in Britain being exposed to soft-pornography everywhere!

    And I don't see how the rise in sexual crimes recently can be attributed to a topless woman on page 3 of a newspaper. :wtf: That has been going on for a very long time. Unless you can establish some cause-effect dynamic your argument is just as strong as me saying "rapes are increasing because people are eating too many carrots".

    Don't be ridiculous.

    I look at it as the same reasons someone would act violently towards another human being, or that they would steal something. Its a mixture of a few things, their upbringing, abuse they themselves have received in their past and also natural mental health issues. Its an accumulation of everything, if they were brought up by their father to believe women are sexual objects they are more likely to believe this for example. But to say that they are alienated from women? I don't see it. I haven't seen it in my own experience, anyway, sure I've had low self esteem before about approaching women but not to the extent that they made me an angry bitter rapist.

    there's better places to look at boobs, why should page 3 be banned if girls want to do that then its their choice. equality can only happen with inequality. page 3 hasn't got anything to do with a rise in rapist cases. page 3 has been around for years. anyway not all rapist cases are true as women lie about being raped which will cause a rise in the statistics

    Come on, fighting and stealing is a completely different crime to rape.

    If you think someone needs to have a mental disorder to steal or fight then you are probably the one with a mental disorder.

    I don;t think you even need to have a mental disorder to rape, i think it occurs among men who have a sense of enetitlement to women but are rejected by them. Although some rapists are probably great at pulling ladies, but they get some sort of kick out of it. I guess its simialar in a sense to any form of fetish, very simialar to BDSM infact. Sexual domination of another person particularly one you feel alienated from.


    All men see women as sexual objects, unless theya re gay or have no sexual interest.

    Where is this 'proven evidence'? Can you link me to a source or something? And of course it does! When a woman says 'no' and the man fails to realise that 'no' actually does mean 'no' and so continues to sexually assualt her, then that leads to a 'sex crime'.

    You're an idiot, or a troll. Or both. Nobody deserves to be raped.
    Come on, I'm sure if the skirt is a certain length then 'the **** got what she deserved' is the legal term used in court to get a quick acquittal

    How about... wait, this may be a little too outside the box here, but I'll go along with it anyway, sorry if the idea doesn't catch on at first... You just don't buy the Sun?

    Wait, no, that'd be too obvious.
    Yeah, mate I'm sorry but that is way too logical and makes just too much sense for the OP. :giggle:

    I live with a Muslim, explain to me how that works if I hate Muslims.

    I don't blame any of my problems on Muslims, I haven't been sexually assaulted or anything. If you said I hate Islam you might actually be correct, but I hate Christianity too. I do not hate Muslims or Christians, though.
    Ignore that guy please. I don't think he quite understands your POV.

    (Don't want you getting a bad image of Muslims, but you seem too intelligent to get that bed impression from one person).

    You are sick. What an evil, disgusting thing to say. If a man can't take rejection then they live with it just like a woman would.

    If they did what you suggested then they should be castrated and undergo a penectomy.

    Frankly, if you think men should do it to get back at women just to 'See how arrogant they are then' thats just childish. Grow up please.
