Does the Left Cheek Know What the Right Is Doing?

Today Mehdi Hasan writes on the Huffington Post UK:

“And consider the newspapers’ treatment of women and minorities, which Leveson also – and rightly – highlighted in his report. On women, he wrote that the tabloid press often fail to show “consistent respect for the dignity and equality of women” and have a “tendency to sexualise and demean” women.””

Apparently Mehdi feels it is right to criticise tabloids that sexualise and demean women. Got that?

Today the Huffington Post UK has run a piece with the following headline: “Carine Felizardo Crowned Top Buttocks Of Brazil In Miss BumBum Pageant (PICTURES)”. Recently Mehdi’s boss, HuffPoUK’s editor, Carla Buzasi lamented:

“The fascination with bodies, celebrity or otherwise, isn’t exactly something new, of course, and shows no sign of abating. But here’s a thought: why don’t we just stop?”

Do as we say not as we do…

      I still believe there is something highly suspicious about the Mc.anns. I suppose we’ll never find out now, but there’s definitely something dark and dirty in their woodshed.

      Being good at darts is a lot less dangerous and irresponsible than leaving a 3 year old daughter alone in a foreign country while the parents go out on a jolly.

    Can we have a smidgeon of press control? To tell the truth and less hypocrisy.

    Rather ironic of Mehdi to speak up for women’s rights, when he follows a religion that treats women like shit and beheads them for refusing marriage proposals.

    A teenage girl was beheaded by a relative in northern Afghanistan after she turned down his marriage proposals, according to reports. The victim, named as Gisa, was decapitated with a knife in the Imam Sahib district of Kunduz province on Tuesday, local police said. She is believed to be around 15-years-old.

    Jizzlam, every idiot knows that it’s not the religion that says to behead women. It’s just uneducated people doing heinous things without any thought to religion. Seriously, how long will people like you say stupid ignorant things for?

      Then it must be because they are all inbred lunatics then!
      Just be thankful that you were not born there and stop defending the indefensible.

    But this is South America and the ones who admire a perfect bot the most are the young ladies themselves. All that Botox (whatever that is) – per capita, the highest in the world.

    The Hypocrittington Post leads the field in getting to the bottom of things. But with a name like Hasam he holds himself open for some hefty criticism for his criticism!

    Its rich for Medhi, a professional muslim apologist, to say that the papers lack”“consistent respect for the dignity and equality of women” and have a “tendency to sexualise and demean” women.””

    Barefaced cheek. Couldn’t make it up.

    Fenton says:

    “Consistent respect for the dignity and equality of women” Can he point out a part of the world that he approves of with respect to the “dignity and equality of women” so that we can learn and emulate? Non spring to mind?

    Bit rich really, given that the little shit subscribes to a religion whose raison d’etre is to subjugate women in a far worse way than any tabloid could.

    Private Eye Emporers Clothes Horse Shit says:

    Wimmin can whinge for the devil, if you give them an open field of play – but it is us men why they do not, because they do not want to sound as stupid as their potential.

    It is well known in the armed forces of old that ladies go nuts when there is no men about, literally, so there has to be a token male sergeant about for them to focus on, all of them.

    It’s true – read the trick cyclist published reasearch papers about it – think they called it The Daddyless Syndrome, or something like that.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
