What happened to the men of this country? And from where came this populace of feeble and selfish cowards?
Here’s some of the thoughtful criticism I got while publicly denouncing that British institution – The Sun’s page 3.
To all the men (and there were so many of you!) who responded by saying “but I like looking at tits…” and to all the men who asked me, “are you queer…?” I don’t know what to say to you. If anyone still has doubts that Rupert Murdoch’s papers build character, you will surely put them in their place.
To all the men who simply said “f*ck off”… No.
To the witty man who said that my wife must have put me up to it… Your friends think highly of your keen sense of humour. I’m standing up for the honour of my wife, and all the women and girls of my people against 40 years of vindictive misrepresentation in our biggest selling family newspaper. Furthermore, I’m contending for the men of my people, that they might not become the feeble, withered, passive, penis-fiddling kinds of cowards that I am here addressing. What would you suggest, funny man? Do think I would be more of a man if I would just stand down, get in line, shut up and masturbate to whatever Rupert Murdoch puts in front of me next? Why am I being accused of being less of a man by these overgrown-boys who won’t even make stand for their own women? Cowards.
To the Sun’s old assistant editor who said “There are bigger issues right now…” Is that a point? Or did you just say, “can we talk about something else please?” What eloquent heights British rhetoric and debate has come to. The man on the street says “but I like tits…” and the ruling elites of Fleet Street say “lets not talk about it…” Cowards.
To David Cameron who lamented the “pornification of society” and “the sexualisation of children” back in his earlier promise-making days. It was your party who pornified our society and sexualised our children when you laughed Clare Short’s bill against page 3 out of parliament and protected Rupert Murdoch’s right to saturate the working people with whatever he wanted – way back in 1986. In spite of your great words I see you’ve done nothing. Is it because you’re afraid to mess with Rupert Murdoch’s business? Cowards.
To those who insist that they should be free to masturbate over images of stripped women if they want to, and that women should be free to make money getting masturbated over if they choose… Maybe you missed what this is all about. You will still be able to use porn, and the same lucky minority of the multitudes of girls caught in this sick machine will still get paid. This is about categorisation. We just want porn out of family newspapers, where it finds its way into the lives of people who did not ask for it. That’s all.
If there are any left of that forgotten race of British men, who had dignity, strength, honour and balls, then sign this petition, and tell everyone you know to do likewise. We are a nation of cowards for as long as we tolerate this vindictive blight on our men, women and children.
