See this piece on the Trudeau scandal:

https://www.theguardian.com/commenti...andal-canadian

If any man calls a woman "undeniably gorgeous", we all know who instantly pounce on him like a rugby scrum with the cries of "sexism". But apparently it's fine for it to go the other way, and this is just the latest of a long string of examples.

When Charlotte Proudman sounded off about a man complimenting her on her professionally produced photo (not her looks, but seems she couldn't tell the difference), someone quickly pointed out that she herself indulged in genuine "objectivising" on Facebook. Her defence was that she knew the man in question.

No such figleaf this time.

Hang on... so you have nothing to say about the remaining contents of this article or even the scandal itself and only the words "undeniably gorgeous" in the second line?

If you want to claim hypocrisy then please present evidence that the writer of this, Leah McLaren, has herself condemned men for calling women "undeniably gorgeous", or something similar, as she has done with Trudeau. What you might find is that feminists aren't in some hive mind and what one feminist thinks isn't the same as what other feminists think.

Personally I don't care that she's described him like that.

Firstly, you've completely missed the tone of the sentence.

Secondly, a man can compliment a woman on her looks without being accused of sexism.

(1) No "tone of sentence" will save a man from being damned for a single word deemed "sexist"

(2) Did you not follow the Proudman story?

Men who sleep around aren't respected. Nobody respectful, respects men that sleep around. No woman wants to associate with one. No woman wants to marry one. If they were respected women would want them and they don't. They are shunned and excluded by women and men in society particularly by more traditional/religious groups. Here's a few labels associated with men that sleep around:

1. Thirsty
2. Pervert
3. Creep

All of these labels are strictly are reserved for men that are hyper sexual. Men who sleep around are judged critically for sleeping around as well.
