    Hi I have exams now so I shouldn't be on here so this is very naughty, but anyway I photographer I know wants to shoot me (and a friend, girl-on-girl shoot) for something like 'Nuts' mag??

    What is this, is this good? If it's too sexist I'm gonna say no b/c I don't wanna be in a mag if it's like that sorry.

    K thx.

    I've never read it, but from the adverts and the covers I've seen, it's like FHM for men with less brain. If you have much self-respect at all I wouldn't do it.

    Oh ok. Hmm, no wonder he wanted me to do girl-on-girl *suspicious*

    Thankyou for your honesty.

    TBH, I think FHM is far better than Nuts. Nuts, IMO is pretty damn tacky - girls rabbiting on about being in the "house" they pretend they all "live in" in the nude, in the bath, in the kitchen blah blah. And Nuts is all topless, innit? If you're planning to marry someone famous(citing Heather Mills), or indeed don't want to be judged for the rest of your life you might want to think about how your actions could affect your future.

    Notice it's only women who dive in to **** off Nuts?

    Nuts is a lads mag, which features glamour girls, fast cars, stupid stuff and has a good TV guide. It's a third of the price of FHM and is good for a laugh. Nuff said.

    Wanna start me on girls magazines?

    Nuts isn't that bad. It is all the things Carl said... But it is tacky.

    Most girls mags are not under the iron claws of the Nazi Eagle. The difference is political - not to do with fashion.

    Would you flipping stop posting about modelling shoots in H&R? Wanting to be anon is not reason enough to post in the wrong forum.

    She was asking whether it was sexist, and whether we thought she should do it. You can't for one minute seriously tell me it's not sexist.

    It objectifies women, yes, but no-one is forcing those girls to be there and they are paid handsomely. How can an inanimate object be sexist?

    Carl, sweetie, of course we think it's rubbish. We have brains. As I thought you did. FHM is artwork in comparison to Nuts.

    Big Fat Mel is a bloke, so don't think he's be too happy about being referred to as gal.

    I cannot believe you just referred to a woman as an inanimate object. I thought you were better than that.

    The magazine is an inanimate object! How can a magazine be sexist?

    I spend less than an hour a week flicking through Nuts, it provides hours of quality dicsussion with my housemates (both male and female), and it has a telly guide too. For £1.20 it's frankly a bargain.

    I don't care that it's rubbish, as I said that's why I get the Economist, Courrier International and the Independent to read too. Nuts is cheap, tacky entertainment, the literary equivalent of a big mac. That's why it forms only a part of my literary diet.

    The contents are sexist. You know what I mean!! Don't take the piss.

    It's the literary equivalent of a Big Mac being eaten by a fat chav trucker, then being spewed up into the gutter then eaten by a dog, morgrel one at that. It's soft porn page three red top chav *** rag. /rant

    Nobody's forcing them to be there, but it is forcing a view of women that is insulting and misrepresentative on men too stupid to know better. You may think it's light-hearted fun - but like the Sun, there are people out there for whom this is the only literature they read, and they take it seriously.

    And as Segat said, don't be silly about semantics. The contents and the image are sexist.

    Would I be a sexist for buying it? To be honest the naked girls bit doesn't bother me, I much prefer the stupid trivia and cars bits, as well as the telly guide, which provide fodder for hours of inane and stupid conversation with my housemates. I don't understand why you condemn me as unintelligent just because I read some junk.

    I'm glad you have so much distain for Nuts, just don't expect me to read Heat, Glamour, Cosmo or any of that bull****.
