Naked Calendar Furore
These shenanigans are being investigated and the woman's officer (or should that be official feminist?) has called for the calendar to be banned. It has somehow become a feminist issue, but can it really count as exploitation when they agreed to have those pictures put in the public domain? Of course, by that I do not mean the unedited photographs, even though there was permission for those too, because they should not have been leaked, but the actual calendar photos are put out there for the public to see. It will be interesting to see where this debate leads, but what has really amused me is the coverage in The Sun newspaper, as they have printed the photos in question:
Well done Sun, you really now how to approach a sensitive issue. Or in language which would be more understandable to The Sun's readership, tits, girls, boobs, footy!
