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.


News papers in general might be considered a think of the past.

If a model wants to be paid to pose for page 3, why shouldn't she?
If a man or in fact a women wants to look at page 3, why shouldn't they?

Will page 3 turn young boys into sex offenders or make them treat women badly, No it wont.

Will the easy avalibility of rough porn, rape porn and all the other videos on the net do more harm than page 3, i'd guess so.

Is it degrading for a woman to choose to model, topless or otherwise and get paid if that is a choice she make of her own free will. There are many page 3 girls i remember from my distant youth who made alot of money from just that.
Look how many years tv degraded Linda Bellingham by having her appear on a bisto advert because clearly making gravy is a womans job....

When the page 3 girl 1st came into play its fair to say the majority of people who bought papers in general and the sun or star would have been men, it was still widely considered to be the man who was the bread winner so its clear it was done to sell papers to men. The women i know a) generally still don't buy a paper and b) the sun or star would be low on their choices list.

And yet womens magazines have many scantily clad ladies on there pages.

You pay your money and make your choice..

Errrm, well, no actually. Its not the end of page three, they are still showing topless models. So the Sun boss must not think its old fashioned, and as its still an ongoing 'highlight' of the Sun, then it is not a thing of the past either.

The best comment I saw on FB was regarding two promininent campaigns: Free The Nipple! (Reason: Gender equality & feminism) Ban Page 3! (Reason: Gender equality & feminism) Now, hands up who's confused

In all honesty I think it's needed more now than ever. As much as I do find it a little crass, I'd rather that than to let a mouthy minority with very narrow ideas on morals/acceptability dictate to others how they should live their lives.

I thought the funniest was the report on the BBC 10:00 p.m. news - where they blurred out the nipples! They can have a naked couple shagging at 9:00 p.m. - but no nipples on the news. Weird or what?

From my point of view, while it sexualises women, ultimately it's a bit of harmless fun. The Page 3 girl was a willing participant, just as those who read The Sun are willing viewers. If you're that offended by Page 3, don't buy The Sun!

There are probably magazines out there with naked men, but "menimists" don't generally kick up a storm, do they?

Possibly though
a) it implies nipples are rude  laugh
b) it should not be impossible to have two versions!

I don’t think the noisy minority are going to stop the increasing number of women from doing exactly what they want to do. I would love to see these righteous people go on to Twitter and tell the ladies who are using their, sexuality to make a living, to stop. Me thinks they are very much likely to get lynched! Page 3 may have had its day but the decade of the woman has come into being and no one will tell them (and their thousands of fans) what they should, and should not do when it comes to clothes or on clothes off etc.

Sadly in this day & age it's the highly-strung, mouthy minority with some perverse agenda that seems to get its own way.
