    Daily Mail Sexualizing Imprisoned Women

    Has the Daily Mail done anything more tasteless than this? I'm sure they have but I can't remember.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...st_read_module

    It seems like most complains about sexism are exaggerated or not worthy of consideration, but this piece made me laugh at how stupid it was. It's not really THAT big of a deal, but still stupid. It embodies the DM perfectly. I don't know what there is to say other than it being business as usual for the DM, but I thought it was funny.

    They are very sleazy, I never take any of their stories seriously.

    Smile and nod, smile and nod... Also, are they on crack? Adding Lohan to the mix of "good looking" mug shots... I'm thinking so. Good times on the old DM tonight

    Is there some fetish I'm unaware of? One that involves mugshots of women, apparently?

    I wouldn't really call it sexualizing. They are just commenting on how while police mugshots are humiliating for most women the ones featured in the pictures have somehow managed to look as though it's any other portrait.

    A very slow news day in other words.

    But as the saying goes: "No news is good news."

    The Daily Mail is a rag.. nothing it publishes should be deemed as News, as it regularly denigrates itself with its constant barrage of tabloid bullshit that even the Sun wouldn't print.

    It is becoming something of a comic in its ability to produce fiction.

    At least the Onion has stories that are believable.

    And it's the Daily Mail, the worst rag known to man.
    In fact as far as I'm aware the UK is the only european nation that outright bans guns for civilians.
    Shotguns I'll give you (provided you're allowed 12 and larger gauges... because I mean... come on...) but not .22s.
    This is why people ban guns. Gun supporters don't know what guns are.

    Yes, yes they have. They're as scummy as newspapers get in Britain.

    I don't get why this should have been brought to attention by daily mail. This just crappy "news"...

    I don't get it. Do people have a problem with it because:

    1. It's sexualization of women. Meaning it doesn't matter who does it - it's wrong.
    2. That it's the Daily Mail doing it . Meaning if it was TMZ something then it wouldn't matter?
    3. Both? There shouldn't be sexualization, especially by The Daily Mail?

    Only two of the dozen women they showed were even remotely "attractive," pretty fail really.
