    This is going to get interesting - what will be next and where does it stop? Boxing ring round number holders? Cheerleaders? Models?

    Kelly Brooke has already pushed back at this saying that it will put a lot of women out of work that they are actually quite happy doing.

    The 'getting by on your looks' industry is under attack from the uglies and fatties that never made the cheerleading team. I think this will be one for the ladies to work out among themselves.
    Because feelings...

    It's more difficult with sports like boxing or certain types of music. Because then race becomes a factor.

    The fact that we have this debate about women holding cards up and then you have women forced to wear clothing that hides their face etc is madness.

    Yes. I would. Not because it objectifies men though, it's just not what I want to see.

    Yes, interesting one that.
    On one side you have people telling women what to wear and when there are complaints that it is degrading/wrong/etc, then the complainers are criticised
    on the other side you have people telling women what to wear and when there are complaints that it is degrading/wrong/etc, then the complainers are criticised

    If someone protests about women wearing bikinis, they should also protest about women wearing burkhas. And the reverse should be true as well.
