Not so long ago we have mothers, including some feminists protesting about womens rights to breastfeed their children in public, now we have feminists welcomming the ban of Page 3 models in the Sun. The real purpose of these campaign is not about topless women but are against pretty ladies and these feminists simply don't like the idea of men looking at attractive women.
A true story. Many years ago a female friend took offence over my topless daily Star calendar and tore it down. Years later she came out and declare herself a lesbian So she wasnt offended by the images of topless women and actually rather liked it, just that she was offended by a bloke looking at it. Thing is my eyes, my mind and what I like is my own, within what is legal it is not for anyone else to decide what I'm allowed to enjoy seeing.

We have complete outrage (rightly) re "je su charlie" which is to allow freedom of speech for artists printing cartoons in a newspaper .... then we ban "artists" publishing their work in a newspaper because we dont like what they are publishing - topless images...

Sorry I really cant figure it out, the answer to the outraged Muslims is dont buy the magazines, then the outraged Feminists get to tell everyone else you cant print the pictures becasue they dont like them!

Yet outrage feminists don't buy the Sun regardless if it has Page 3 or not, it is just that they want to enforce their views and repression over men. Can you imagine topless fellas gets banned from all womens magazines the feminists and spineless politicians would be up in arms. Change.org needs a petition to bring boobs back on Page 3.....
Another way to reverse the ban is don't buy the Sun now that the only thing worth looking at is gone.

The reason for the end of page three is the the Sun boss thinks its old fashioned. He's right really isn't he? Its a thing of the past.

If sale of the Sun drops drastically will this be reversed? I doubt quality of journalism is a strong selling point of the said paper
BTW The Sun never confirm the ban which indicate something they can change back to. This also generate a lot of publicity. Murdoch is a shrewd marketing man and I would'nt put it past him to use this opportunity to reboot Page 3 with a new Sam Fox esq topless model for the new millenia that everyone will remember and start a whole new era of household name Page 3 lovelies. It is feminism that is old fashion and have been around far longer than Page 3.

It wouldn't be a very shrewd person who'd put a 16 year old kid toplrss in a paper now.

Whether you read the Sun or not, or care about Page 3 or not, it's a victory for the bigots who want to impose their views. How many who voted actually read the Sun? What will attract their attention next, modelling sites like this?
If it walks like a duck, and talks like a duck, it could be my ex wife.

And what worries me is.... where does it end?

The 'ban page 3' group are saying their work isn't over until all photos of models in newspapers are readicated, be it lingerie or swimwear.  Then what... lads mags? calendars?  album covers?  top shelf magazines?  films?

As for the breastfeeding thing, I think it should be banned. If we're not supposed to be comfortable with boobs in magazines/newspapers, it should therefore be accepted that actual boobs in public can and will cause embarassment/uncomfort to others. And while some would argue that breastfeeding is 100% natural... so is looking a nice looking women too
