“We’re all topless models…”
Posted by charliegrrl on January 9, 2007
In an Independant article, a commentator proclaims, “We’re all topless models…”
You wish boys, we’ve got better things do
The Independant wrote an article about Keeley- the ZOO, FHM and Page 3 topless model, celebrating her rise to fame. Although, you could have mistaken it for an article in The Sun
“Keeley Hazell has a terrific pair of breasts. This…is not so much crude bloke conjecture as much as it is concrete fact.”
“Her achievement is all the more remarkable when you consider that, due to the flourishing men’s magazine market, there appear to be more topless women around these days than ever.”
The Independant seems to celebrate the trend for women posing topless…and celebrate the career Keeley has made out of her breasts, as if this is something admirable. They consider the position that posing topless may be degrading to women, but then dismiss it with this…
“Oh, come on – we’re all topless models now,” she states. “And I simply don’t think it has the stigma it once had. We live in a world where people masturbate with bottles on Big Brother. Page 3, in comparison, is a cradle of innocence, and the models – virtually the vicar’s daughters – are really rather endearing.”
Rowan Pelling, an Independant columnist who used to pose topless
Yeah, I’m sure topless 18 year olds posing with innocence appear really endearing to the pervy 30 year olds reading The Sun.
They wonder why Keeley is so successful, and put it down to having huge breasts, a toned body and the X-factor. Well, I’d put it down to clever marketing. ZOO always features Keeley and most often features her as the winner of ‘the best breasts’ competition, ‘the best bum’ competition… This is because Keeley is a regular model for ZOO. Not because she is genuinely the most attractive woman in the world. I don’t mean to be harsh to her. But this is the reality- she is a brand to ZOO, and other porn mags. She is being groomed into a lads mags porn star. They promote her and create a bond between her and the male right hand, to increase readership. It is in their financial interest to emulate her as an topless icon, so boys will carry on buying lads mags. It’s clever marketing.
“In terms of the way she looks…Keeley is a major influence to young women. She is entirely natural, not enhanced in any way. The anti-Jordan, if you like. She simply has an amazingly toned body, but with huge breasts – which is what all our readers ultimately crave.”
How dare this commentator make out that a topless model is a role model for young women. If she is, then we need to worry, not celebrate this. But oh yeah, I forgot, all you pervy men want teenage girls to aspire to take their clothes off for your penile pleasure.
This article in the Independant is so misogynistic. It’s a fucking disgrace.
There’s too much to criticise… so I’d read it for yourself…
