I’m assuming she didn’t need the money, so she obviously wanted to do it and agreed what she considered a fair price with the punter. Where’s the coercion, harm or lack of informed consent in this behaviour which might justify a punitive response?

Lawyer Nick Freeman says women who dress provocatively victimise men | Mail Online

another clever trick by the Mail. Their paternalistic tendency is to voice precisely the same authoritarian sexist rationalisation for their phobia about sexual display. But they know they’d get torn to shreds if they uttered such thoughts out loud in their reportage, so they go find some pompous prick publicly prattling their case for them and merely report it, fairly, but in tones which suggest they expect “uproar” to follow, in response to the pillock.

And they’re right. I would place a huge wager that there will be a much larger number of complaints about this antideluvian bollocks than the 125 “uproar” who whinged about the gay scene in East Enders…

They hope that none of the mud sticks to them. It’s important that we help to make it stick…

EastEnders sparks uproar with gay bedroom scene before the watershed | Mail Online

er… I don’t watch soaps. But I believe about 9 million watch Eastenders. How does 125 complaints from such an audience constitute “uproar”??

Au contraire. What we have here is thinly disguised homophobia with the aim of “manufacturing consent”; an example of the true evil the tabloids are capable of…

another pillar of support for trusted surveillance. Start demanding it:

Creationists are infiltrating US geology circles • The Register

wow, two examples of cognitive dissonance in quick succession. This time we’re faced with the concept of a Geologist with “advanced degrees” (presumably in Geology) who considers the Earth to be no more than 10,000 years old. How is that level of informed self delusion even possible without hallucinogenic drugs?
