Err, yes?

While there are always exceptions, everyone knows that females are more likely to be coerced into using their sexuality.

 

Umm, welcome to mammallian life?

  1. Coerced, or chose to in order to have / extend their 15 minutes of fame? Might Miley Cyrus have sold more albums if she hadn’t assiduously cultivated the “bad girl” image?

    More Guardian “jeez i’ve a column to write” crap.

  2. “When the Brit nominations were recently announced, much of the focus was rightly on how “white” they were, similar to the Oscars. However, for me, this was not the only reason why the Brit nominations were unsettling. “

    *elbows aside other identity groups, waving Victimhood Poker hand* Outta the way, it’s my turn!

  3. “to be coerced into using their sexuality”: I wonder what she meant to mean by that. The Observer used to be a well-written rag: what happened to their standards?

  4. Are we sure Guardian columns are written by mammals rather than badky programmed leftist propaganda bots? The byline picture and the bio don’t actually need to bear any closer relationship to reality than the editorials.

  5. Women choosing Ed Sheeran (whoever he is) is chauvinistic?
    Unless Ed Sheeran (whoever he is) is French that doesn’t make sense.
    But if you are a female Guardian/Observer journalist, you don’t have to make sense.

  6. So Much for Subtlety

    Is being unthreatening the point of Ed? That he’s a good musical starter-crush for little girls who might find One Direction too frightening?

    Ummm, yes. Obviously. Girls, especially early teen girls, like their pop stars with the sex appeal turned right down. So it has been since the days of the Monkeys.

    If so, where’s the gender parity?

    Why should there be parity? Boys like what they like. Girls like what they like. End of story. The music industry is not pushing a narrative. They are selling music.

    While there are always exceptions, everyone knows that females are more likely to be coerced into using their sexuality.

    Sure, you have to force them to wear that short skirt when asking for a raise. In the real world, women are more likely to be overtly coerced to do a lot of things. But men are also likely to be coerced, just not obviously. Women are the more subtle gender. The “what? are you a man?” line which works for boys who won’t f*ck to those who won’t fight is coercion in its own way.

    Some might say it’s what the audience demands, but isn’t it more about being told what to want?

    No.

    Do we truly believe that people sit at home saying: “Well, I’m not listening to this – she’s got all her clothes on and hasn’t once pretended to orgasm,”?

    Well, yes. Obviously.

    In short, does it occur to anyone that Sheeran’s banality, the very fact that he’s permitted to be so banal, is a profoundly chauvinist fact in itself?

    No it does not. Life is like it is. Accept it and move on.

    Ed Sheeran might be the nicest guy in the world, but it’s time that “Ed Sheeran”, the effect and the pox, was identified and stopped.

    So Mr Sheeran, whoever he is, needs to be coerced into being more sexy? Interesting.

  7. Do we truly believe that people sit at home saying: “Well, I’m not listening to this – she’s got all her clothes on and hasn’t once pretended to orgasm,”?

    Well, yes. Obviously.

    Or at least, switch over if there’s mostly-naked, pretending-to-orgasm totty of the preferred gender on the other channel.

    Interestingly, it’s the same misunderstanding/misrepresentation of fag-packet marketing. Do people really start smoking because the packet has pretty colours on? No, but they might switch brand…
