You are a disgrace and I'm looking forward to when someone you respect dies so I can rub your liberal face in it.

I must be not right in the head mind you, my first thought was it was some weird website that showed people getting crushed either in the tube doors or the tube train itself.

nicola_red wrote:So who's heard of this site? Basically people take covert photos with their phones of attractive men they've spotted on the London Underground and upload them to the site. Highly dubious, but a lot of the reports I've seen seem to take a "well it's just a bit of fun" angle. Any opinions...?

Yudster wrote:The whole objectification thing isn't the same for men and women primarily because its extremely rare for women to sexually abuse and rape men, but its not particularly rare (relatively speaking) for men to sexually abuse women. And no, I'm definitely NOT saying that perving over women is abuse, or that men who do it are a step away from being abusers, but a stupid percentage of women will at some point be affected by sexual abuse in their lives, so attention from men which feels sexual in origin is bound to cause more discomfort for women than it does for men.
That said, I'm not in favour of censorship and for me the answer to how to help women feel safer in situations where they perhaps currently feel anxious is to improve the way sex crime is handled so that the blame for it is put in the right place, with abusive men, not simply horny men. Then maybe more women could enjoy being appreciated in that way just like Wykey clearly did! Or at least not be oppressed by it.
I think. Its so complicated, I keep changing my mind about what I think.......

The girls I know sodding love being perved on. Sluts.
