    Interesting article. Thank you.

    For those of us that I’ve been around for a while, it feels like we are running around in circles and never getting nowhere. From “diversity” Benetton style being sold as progress to “fashion magazines are evil” ideas being co-opted by feminists and right wing fundamentalist alike, the sense of deja vu is simply exhausting.

    That was an interesting article, Benn. I've been boycotting Walmart for many years to avoid an array of horrors ... but Cosmo wasn't one of them :wink:

    He didn’t said that but I guess with translation, a bit of transformation is expected.

    ^ Are you saying he didn't mention the convent as an alternative career path?

    Not defending him and his generally ridiculous opinions and I'm not a native French speaker (I have only been speaking for a few years), but he absolutely did not say anything about being groped. It really seemed that what he said about pulling was more so about tugging on a skirt to adjust it, not 'pulling a skirt down' as has been reported.

    I think all this famous people that have been accused of sexual harassment by multiple victims, seem to have trouble understanding that you do not need a court case to make a decision whether you want to hire or not certain individuals after they have been accused of sexual crimes. The decision to believe the victims is one that we are all free to make and in this case act upon.
    This is not AT ALL the same as saying that we can dispense with the legal process and take accusation as face value if we actually want this people to be punished in a criminal court, but the same way as the standards of proof are lower in civil cases, not offering work to photographers that have been accused of inappropriate behaviour at work, looks to me the most correct way to deal with this situation.

    I don't mean to be hard-hearted, but I find it much more amusing to read about people feeling sorry for themselves when they speak Frenglish :lol: Say some more!!
