A group of lawyers have had a letter published in today's Guardian newspaper, in which they call on on 'high-street retailers to immediately withdraw lads' mags and papers featuring pornographic front covers from their stores'.
They make the argument that because they are displayed in workplaces, they have to be banned; this is because they are displaying Smokin' hot ladies, and smoking is banned in the workplace, and therefore can be displayed outdoors only, where the rest of the smokers stand*
*They actually don't; they argue that 'displaying these publications in workplaces, and/or requiring staff to handle them in the course of their jobs, may amount to sex discrimination and sexual harassment contrary to the Equality Act 2010'.
Have they got a point? If so, why have they not called for buff men to be shoved through the back door, also?
Equality, my ar$e; or something.
