Equality is a good thing. Living with my wife and two daughters, we make sure that they question any perceived inequalities, especially those that exist between the sexes. Women want equality – fine, no problem, that’s a Good Thing.
So when J gets given – by a friend – a calendar, it should not cause offence. Except that this calendar has, for each month, a topless muscled Fireman on display in what can only be described – in some cases – as provocative poses. The 3 women of this house like this calendar, they like it a lot in fact. I mention that in the interests of equality, I will purchase a calendar that has a topless female on each page – after all, equality is only fair isn’t it ?
Seems that some people are more equal than others … I get shouted down :) I’m told that seeing topless females is rude (1 – not if you are a bloke it isn’t and 2 – rudeness is an opinion, not a fact) and I’m told that having women on display who have better boobs / bodies will upset the women here who cannot compete (I point to the 12 sets of 6-packs of display along with the other enhanced musculature and ask whether that could not make me feel worse – and I’m told tough ! :) )
I think I should be allowed one if I want (this is a principle argument now) but I’m told I cannot show one if I buy one. I think the women are wrong and are effectively wanting to have their cake and eat it.
You say what ?
