- The Ad on here "1 tip for a sexy stomach" with the girl in the red bikini
If the ad shows a girl in anything less than a Burka then it should be reported to the mods so they can close it down like they did with the ‘Gorgeous and Talented’ thread yesterday which was full of pictures of female singers wearing the type of clothing you’d see on any street on a warm day. Abhorrant it was.Posted 5 years ago
I reported the talented and gorgeous thread. Do your perving on reddit like everyone else
Maybe I need it spelling out to me but I fail to see how that thread was offensive. It was a selection of (mostly musicians) that people here personally find attractive and contributions from the female members of this site would have been perfectly welcome. The subject is a debate my wife and I have quite regularly at home, over both male and female figures. None of the pictures that were posted were in my opinion, not work-safe and a lot of them presumably came from album covers or publitity shots that would have been displayed in music stores nationwide.Posted 5 years ago
In Monday’s episode of ‘Miranda’ both Miranda and Stevie were lusting over Gary Barlow. Should I take offence at that because I will never have Gary Barlow’s voice or looks?retro83Member

I totally agree, but this is unfortunately in the forum rules (albeit specifically about the A&A/Kylie threads but near enough I think?):Posted 5 years ago
As long as no one is offended by this ‘tradition’ we see no problem with letting it continue as long as all other guidelines and rules are strictly adhered to. If you do find this tradition to be offensive or distasteful then please email us at @singletrackworld.com">firstname.lastname@example.org (or just click the ‘report this post’ link on the post in question). The Kylie Clause is only allowed as we assume that it is considered harmless by the majority of users of the forum. We will not know any different unless you make us aware of your feelings.
What annoys me about threads like that is that they pretend to be about liking a particular female performer, but its never about their skill at melodies ( wow, her use of dim7 on the 2nd verse really brings out the tone of the whole song!!) but about whether her bum is actually eating her shorts.
Perv by all means, but at least be honest about it.
Edit: kylie started before I joined nothing I can do about it, and at least CFH is honest about his perving when he celebrates the athletic threads, and puts up piccies of boys as well as girlsPosted 5 years ago
I’ll concede that one or two of the posts were perhaps thinly veiled, but I don’t really want to get into an arguement over where ‘tounge in cheek’ stops and offence starts as that’s very much a personal thing.
The word ‘perv’ is a hard one to pin down. Does it only apply to visual stimuli? I posted a picture of Justine Frischmann and I can honestly say that the sound of her voice gives me more of an internal glow than any pictures of bum eating shorts.Posted 5 years ago
‘spoon, I wrote a spooof objection on that thread then decided not to post it.
To answer your question, I’n not offended by it. If I was offended enough, I’d report it.
I’m not emsz, her levels of offensivness are different from mine its not for me or anyone else to judge or put measures on her tolerance.Posted 5 years ago
Do the mods take into account the type of people who’s hobby seems to be finding things to be offended by, and therefore ignoring them when they report a post for being ‘offensive’?
To quote Steve Hughes;
Now you have adults going “I was offended, I was offended and I have rights!” Well so what, be offended, nothing happened. You’re an adult, grow up, and deal with it. I was offended! Well, I don’t care! Nothing happens when you’re offended. “I went to the comedy show and the comedian said something about the lord, and I was offended, and when I woke up in the morning, I had leprosy.”
Nothing Happens. “I want to live in a democracy but I never want to be offended again.” Well you’re an idiot.
How do you make a law about offending people? How do you make it an offense to offend people? Being offended is subjective. It has everything to do with you as an individual or a collective, or a group or a society or a community. Your moral conditioning, your religious beliefs. What offends me may not offend you. And you want to make laws about this? I’m offended when I see boy bands for god sake.
It’s a valid offense, I’m offended.

you never hear good looking people complaining about threads on other peoples looks.
you never hear fat munters complaining about threads talking about cake.
In this day and age, you’re supposed to be massively faux-offended on their behalf, then loudly tell everyone that they could be offenced so they’d best stop the thread.Posted 5 years agobencooperMember
Having this discussion with that T-shirt ad over there ->
Anyhow, the problem isn’t admiring good-looking people. That’s normal. The problem is treating people as objects, and especially online there is a big problem with attitudes towards women, especially women who aren’t supermodels and who have views of their own. Mary Beard suffered some particularly vile abuse online recently for daring to have opinions on TV.
I guess the mods what to cut out any possibility of that kind of thing happening.Posted 5 years ago
Perhaps, but women are seen more in our society as objects, not people. Yes I know men are used on adverts too, but nowhere near as much, and that Kyle thread shows it. Will the agent provocateur ad be banned by the mods? Yes because it’s more or less porno. It’s a fine line, swimwear…lap dance… Sex industry
Can I stop it? No I can’t, am i just as guilty, looking occasionally? Hell yeah,
doesn’t make it right or ok though does it?Posted 5 years agobwaarpMember
Emz, have you ever thought women are used in adverts most…because they drive the vast majority of purchasing choices?
How is a bikini more or less porno? There’s a big difference between a woman standing in a bikini and a woman spreading her legs in one with an inviting look. One is sexualized and the other is likely not to make me bat an eye lid.
The only reason why partial-nudity with no other context is sexualized sometimes…is due to the fact that some people still have victorian attitudes towards the human body.
doesn’t make it right or ok though does it?
What, so we should all become like religious folk? Have guilty pleasures and **** ourselves up mentally? Or should we view sexuality as normal and healthy.
And before anyone says….”but but these aren’t normal women….bad examples blahdyblahblah”…. anyone that can’t distinguish between the fantasy we see presented by the media and reality needs their head examined.Posted 5 years ago
