    There is clearly a connection, although unprovable, between the rising tide of sexual crime and page three. The constant mass circulation of such images must, in some way, influence sexual attitudes and the sexual climate of society. These pictures portray women as objects of lust and sexual desire, and do not portray sex in a tender or private manner. They completely undermine any social progress towards 'equality of the sexes' as they propagate the notion that women are objects, rather than people with the right to be respected.

    Yes? No?
    Blame the slutty 14 year olds who wear skimpy dresses and plaster themselfs in make up...

    I will gain the trust of a woman and pounce? Are you under the impression i can't get girls and its only a matter of time until i trick one into liking me?
    I get lots of girls. I get the girls being *****y to me cause when i go out i chat up lots of ladies.


    We are different people you're a nice girl who wants everyone to be happy, whereas i don't care. Last night i started a fight on two guys after kissing one of there girlfriends haha. If they didn;t get scared i would have beaten them to a pulp.


    I don't ever want kids, i defiently don;t want a wife. I want to become a banker, drive a ferrari and have sex with high class prostitutes.

    If i ever had a son they certainly would not be to your taste haha.... i guess the lesson is don;t have babies with me. Haaha.

    I'd happily see these girls raped, i hate them *****es... think they're too good for me.

    Well obviously you have a lot of confidence in yourself and you don't care about hurting people. And you think you're a hard nut too by the sounds of it! :rolleyes:
    Don't worry I certainly don't want your babies, in fact I don't think many girls would want babies with you and probably would actually be scared of their own son if it was your son too. :eek3:
    You obviously have a personal vendetta against girls who say no, so thats really your problem not anyone elses.
    Good Luck with being a rich, lonely banker. Maybe one day you will stop living behind your e-personality and actually be a human. But I don't think we'll count on it.
    Back to the point anyways...no one is going to ban page 3 any time soon...just think how many 20p's they'll lose out on when the sad, lonely, dirty old men stop buying it :p:

    Its weird that soft porn is on a national newspaper...but whatever, these women get paid and choose to do it.
    If you dont like it then dont look at it.
    Its completely ridiculous to suggest that the rise in sex-crime is due to page 3, I mean, wasnt page 3 always there?...
    Anyways, I hardly read the Sun.

    I've not bothered to read any other comments other than the first, because I will just get quite angry and i'm not in the mood tonight.

    But I believe that any magazines which such images on should not be sold in places like your average corner shop or Asda. It's disgusting. Think about it, the supermarket.. selling soft porn. I'm surprised it's not already been made illegal.

    There's all this arguement about it being on the 'top shelf'. That's bullcrap. I'm pretty sure kids are capable of looking up.

    I don't believe it's right, and I think it's a disgusting way to make money because it is what anyone can do. The only reason that the women that do it, feel good about doing it is because they've probably been hurt by men or not given enough attention.. so hey let's go show those men what they're missing and get as much attention as possible.

    They feel good because it's been fed into their systems from a young age, hell, we've all heard about what the media can do to people.

    It angers me, and I think it's sick, I really do. I promise you all it will not be like this for much longer. Someone will see sense.

    Yes? No?
    "Although unprovable"? What on earth do you think psychologists spend their time doing!?

    More to the point, you sound like you've never even heard of porn. :rolleyes:
    I agree it's out of place for a sexual image to be proudly paraded just inside the cover of a national newspaper, but it is

    1. A red-top.
    Anyone malleable enough to take anything they say in can't be saved!

    2. Mostly read for page 3 by teenage boys (most of which attend my 6th form, and enjoy plastering the common room with back-issues).

    3. Not going to change. Do you think a newspaper that displays half-naked women in the first place is going to care if they're claimed detrimental to society?

    Bottom line is, anybody who reads The Sun in the first place is already a write-off. In the nicest possible way...

    EDIT: Also, it would be quite nice to see a female equivalent of 'Nuts' or whatever once in a while. Not that I'd read it, but the thought that it's acceptable would be nice.

    While personally I don't really understand the culture of having soft porn with your breakfast, many people clearly do, and it is not the job of the state to decide whether they should. And even if it was, do you really think that there are people who would otherwise be normal members of society who are driven into committing sexual attacks because they read the Sun? Correlation does not imply causation.

    This is such a stupid thread ¬¬ page 3 shouldnt be banned; The Sun should be banned because its just a terrible paper. The Daily Star, on the other hand, has a lot more class and eloquence :yep:

    It's not smart in any way, it's cowardly.
    As much as I completely disagree with you and think that everything you've posted is absolute **** of the first order, no I wouldn't want you 'punished'. It's called freedom of speech okay? Something you think I ,as a woman, shouldn't be allowed presumably (after all, our freedom to reject guys makes them rape us, right? :rolleyes: )

    Ok, i can gaurantee you are anything but smart. My public face is charming nice guy, the reality is something completely different.

    You're right i don;t hold the opinions of women very highly, they are not logical at all and are too emotive.

    How do you know? maybe you'll meet me and i'll be charming, i'll tell you my dreams for the future and chit chat with you and you will fall for me....
    I have no idea why you think girls would not like babies with me, i am rich, handsome, top student, bright future, in great shape...

    I don;t get lonely, I have the opposite problem I dont really feel much attachment to other people.
    Whats a human someone who is soft and weak?

    You're right i do think i am a hard nut... my two favourite things.... ******* and fighting..... fortunately i got a brain too, i guess thats what differentiates me from a common chav haha.

    A guy who actually condones rape just because at some point his ego might be temporarily flattened doesnt sound like a "hard nut" at all. It sounds incredibly weak and over-sensitive. And you accuse women of being too emotional? If you had a good head on your shoulders you would just take a rejection (like the rest of us do) and get on with your life - not condemn them to a violent crime.

    And no, you dont have a brain. An intelligent person doesnt say things like "the ***** deserved it". They just dont.
