While the reactions are a bit over the top, I do think it is fairly odd that a textbook chose to do that. Fundamentally though, it is not a big issue and if people think that teenage girls are getting pressure from biology text books they really haven't got a fucking clue about how the world works. :lol:
This was part of what puzzled me, I went to secondary school in the late 90s and how a girl shaved her muff was on the tame side of things that were said. I cant imiganine its got any better,

Besides that's a lot nicer to look at than a muff that hasn't been shaved ever like the ones we saw in text books :lol:

i'd hardly say its not normal for a woman to shave down there like some of these people are, certainly isnt "porn star" looking :lol:

one thing I've noticed a lot lately is people claiming that someone is being body shamed and coming to their defense.

An example would be that gymnast that's been all over the internet lately


You read the comments on that video and they're all positive. Most are praising her amazing routine. The ones that do talk about her body are all positive

comments like "Nice to see a gymnast who's not emaciated for a change. This girl is amazing and has a perfect healthy body".

Literally every comment about her body is a compliment yet good morning America runs a piece where she addresses the body shaming. I keep seeing these articles where this woman or that woman addresses her body shamers when no one is body shaming them. it's like they feel the need to be a victim so they make some shit up.

I just can't understand these people who transition and then take up sports. The entitlement and selfishness is just absolutely mind-blowing to me. And then they expect to be celebrated for it. Crazy.

:hat
What's there to not understand? They like winning and have a huge advantage. The ones I don't understand are the people that actually allow them to compete and give them the praise

I agree and disagree. It has become normal for women to shave down there, but it wasn't in the 70's or even the 80's much. Porn definitely influenced things, and in general women in places like Korea and Japan still don't, unless they have a lot of western friends and interests. Also, I agree it looks better, but we have to realise that this is 100% socialised. There is nothing that looks better about it intrinsically, we're just used to it being the preferred way of things and that's how we have been socialised.

If we had grown up in the 60's and 70's we wouldn't have seen a Brazilian and immediately have thought...that looks better. If we were Korean, we would not think "I wish girls would shave".

The Brazilian was normalised by porn, just as no lad I knew ever trimmed or shaved their pubes as teens or men in their early 20's, but it has become widespread now due again to porn and changing ideas. Pretty much every American lad I knew said they used clippers and shaved and most American girls expected that a lad would do too. Now, I reckon most British lads aged 18-30 trim or shave (I don't know any figures on this) but to a British guy over the age of 40 that probably sounds effeminate and bizarre.

Absolutely. I saw some piece by a woman the other day about how "Apparently I am a slut" because she liked sex. She just waffled on about how apparently her enjoyment of sex and sometimes wanting to hook up with guys makes her a slut according to this sexist world. She did not give a SINGLE example of ever being called one, any incident that was upsetting...it was just all angry intellectualising about perceived insults.

It is so tired too. If there is a specific case then address it. But we just have a generation of women who believe they are constantly under attack and the major basis for this belief is other women telling them how they're constantly under attack. There is body shaming, and there is sexism and other social ills, but you have people looking to find offence and reinforce their own paranoia at every turn.

If you watch the good morning America piece it just seems like such BS. It seems like GMA wanted to push an agenda and lobbed the question at her for a scripted response.


Made me think of this meme

Angry parents slam 'utterly disgusting' GCSE biology textbook for depicting a pregnant woman with 'Brazilian' pubic hair 'straight out of a porn film'

Parents have demanded publishers withdraw a GCSE textbook in schools across the UK because it shows a woman with a ‘porn star’ Brazilian pubic hair wax.

The science revision book has been met with outrage from parents who say it 'looks like it comes straight out of a porn film'.

Publisher Pearson has been asked to withdraw the 2017 textbook after parents branded the image 'seriously disturbing and disgusting'.

One Twitter user said Pearson Edexcel were 'utterly disgraceful' to have used the 'landing strip' illustration in its International GCSE Human Biology textbook and 'should formally apologise'.

One mother said: 'It depicts a woman with pubic hair that looks like it comes straight out of a porn film.'

Another added on a Mumsnet forum: 'It may appear trivial, but it is definitely unhealthy.

'This is part of the learning that gets drummed into girls about how disgusting they are, how they should be ashamed of themselves, how their discomfort is irrelevant to others.'

James Mannion wrote on Twitter: 'It's just so unnecessary for the diagram. Somebody sat there and drew this. What were they thinking? And who signed off on it?'

Vivienne Porritt, co-founder of education movement #WomenEd, feared 'it may encourage boys to ask girls if they have had a Brazilian'.

She said: 'There is much evidence that girls are already victims of sexual harassment in schools and this image would add to that.'

But other Twitter users were less offended and said people needed to 'get a grip'.

Jamielisa Jacquemin said: 'It’s a human body! Get over it...we all have one! Different shapes...some people are so ridiculous, more things to worry about in the world!'

Pearson said the image had been replaced when the textbook was reprinted in May last year.

A spokesman said: 'Clearly, we did not mean to cause offence with the original version and we would be happy to provide the updated version free of charge to any student or teacher who would like a replacement.'


:lol:

That weans fuckin huge, no way a woman that heavily preggers is getting down there to shave that strip.

All they cunts on Twitter didn't pick up on that one did they.

Give them the same prize money and at the same time reduce mens ticket prices to the same as women's. Equality for all.

It is utterly pathetic that this is even given any reaction other than utter mockery. Why don't the actors on Coronation Street get paid the same as Jennifer Lawrence? :lol:

Where does this utter dunce think the money for men's football salaries comes from? Why does she think that Manchester City players earn more than the men who play for St Helens in rugby league? What possible explanation could there be other than discrimination against rugby?

Commenting on a style of hair someone else is wearing? Someone needs to tell her to stop appropriating non-black people culture and start wearing her hair like she was born with. Put down the chemicals, hot comb and embrace your afro. Over here trying hard as fuck to look as white as she can be SMH. :verysad


I make the same comment farther up the page and get no likes.

The RFU recently decided to get rid of professional contracts for the women's game because no one watches it and instead of making a profit, it actually costs the RFU money and therefore has to be subsidized by the men's game to keep afloat. But as you can imagine there was massive outrage over this and the RFU eventually capitulated. So there is an example of women being paid to play a sport and not because they have earned it or are there on merit, but because they are women. And it's money from the men's game, that could no doubt be put to better use, that is used to pay them.

So the idea that women are treated unfairly in sport is quite clearly demonstrably false and if anything, they are given far more than their market value merits. Just like the equal prize money in tennis despite women playing less sets and generating less viewers. I would also imagine that the £178,000 disparity in prize money for men's and women's teams in the fourth round of the FA Cup isn't anywhere near a fair reflection of actual worth or popularity.

So next up on the #MeToo outrage train is Ryan Adams, singer/songwriter from the early 2000s ... I only really know that one song New York, New York but I was reading this story on the BBC website and my bullshit sensors are tingling.


Several women have accused alternative rock star Ryan Adams of emotional and verbal abuse and offering career opportunities as a pretext for sex.
A report in the New York Times outlines a pattern of manipulative behaviour, including accusations of psychological abuse from his ex-wife, Mandy Moore.
Another woman said Adams sent explicit texts and exposed himself during a Skype call when she was a teenager.
The star, who rose to fame in the early 2000s, has denied the allegations.

Acclaimed indie artist Phoebe Bridgers was among the seven women and dozens of associates who were interviewed for the New York Times article.

She said that Adams reached out to her when she was 20, offering to release her songs on his record label. Their relationship turned romantic, but Adams became obsessive and manipulative, she claimed, demanding to know her whereabouts and threatening suicide if she did not reply to his texts immediately.
When she broke off their relationship, Adams "became evasive about releasing the music they had recorded together and rescinded the offer to open his upcoming concerts," the New York Times reported.
Well, you had broke up with him and he's under no obligation to release your shit if you aren't on good terms.

Through his lawyer, Adams rejected Bridgers' account, describing their relationship as "a brief, consensual fling," and denying he had threatened to withhold her songs.

This Is Us actress Mandy Moore also described a pattern of abuse, describing instances of "destructive, manic sort of back and forth behaviour" during their six-year marriage.

"Music was a point of control for him," she added, saying the star had belittled her own musical career.

"He would always tell me, 'You're not a real musician, because you don't play an instrument.'"
OK, so what does this person do which does define her as a musician, is she a writer, a singer?

How is this abuse to tell an actress she isn't a real musician?

He sounds a bit of an emotional wreck tbh but this fucker was married to him for 6 years.

Another woman, identified only by her middle name, Ava, told the paper her relationship with Adams started in 2013, when she was a teenage bass player. Although they never met, she shared 3,217 text messages she had exchanged with Adams over a nine-month period when she was 15 and 16, describing how their correspondence became sexually explicit.

In one text he wrote to her: "I would get in trouble if someone knew we talked like this".

The newspaper reported that Adams, then 40, "fretted about Ava's age" and repeatedly asked for reassurances that she was over 18.
Right, so she was fucking lying about being over 18 and he kept asking for reassurances she definitely was then?

And he never actually met her?


"If people knew they would say I was like R Kelley lol," he wrote in one message, referring to the R&B singer, who has faced allegations of inappropriate relationships with teenagers, which he denies.

Adams' lawyer said the star "did not recall having online communications with anyone related to anything outside of music," adding that "if, in fact, this woman was underage, Mr Adams was unaware".
Well, clearly ... by what you have written yourself in this article.

After the report was published on Wednesday, dozens of female artists came forward to say they had been through similar experiences in the music industry.
What?

"dozens" of artists said similar shit had happened to them "in the industry", not by Ryan ... nah,. just in the industry in general and similar how?

"None of this is surprising to female artists," wrote country musician Caroline Rose on Twitter. "This is an important article," added singer-songwriter Vanessa Carlton. "This also cracks the door on more like him in our industry. There are more. We're all fed up."
Yeah, it's just like the movie industry bruv... doesn't surprise me in the slightest, let us get some of that good ol' MeToo pie

"Literally find me a woman in the music industry who hasn't had a some dude pull that Ryan Adams 'I wanna help you' with strings attached [expletive]?" wrote music journalist Jessica Hopper.

"And like in this story, these are some of the reasons women abandon careers, keep their dreams private, record in their bedrooms alone."

"Having to perpetually question if a potential collaborator is interested in you musically or personally is an enormous and unspoken barrier for women in music," said Tamara Lindeman, of Canadian folk band The Weather Station.

"Every gatekeeper is a man. And so you have to ask yourself."
No doubt, there will be some Harvey Weinstein types in the music industry but "literally every woman" in the music industry has had to put out favours to get where they are?

Here's what Ryan Adams had to say...



Draw your own conclusions.

He might be guilty as fuck but right now, I treat everything that comes out of rags like the NYT and is connected to this MeToo movement with immediate suspicion.

Sounds like bollocks to me, why this hasn't come out years ago or post his divorce to Moore makes it a bit fishy to me is a new Moore album due or something?

If true he's Ryan Adams FFS possibly one the best song writers of the last few decades, I'm willing to let it slide.
