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…

    Engineer says:

    Women like men’s bottoms and talk about them, too. However, it’s undeniable that a nice female bottom is far more aesthetically satisfying than a male one (smoother, curvier, less hairy), so female bottoms are bound to be more admired.

    Jizzlam says:

    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?

    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.

    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.

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
