    Yeah, right. See also: hell freezing over. Though the other day I saw a woman in a hijab clutching a wad of Socialist Worker papers. At first I thought it was odd because it is absolutely not possible to be a communist and a devout muslim, but then I thought that this is the SWP so anything is possible. Even in my days, long ago, of being curious about radical socialism I thought the SWP were full of shít.

    Not sure how this can be held up as a massive step forward, it is still purely a chick for the sake of it.
    If think these chicks are supposed to actually know something about the cars they're standing next to.

    I've never been into hardware. Though my brother-in-law is and used to marshall at Mondello Park. Excellent fellow though. Likes a pint.

    They are certainly politically loaded words but that doesn't mean they can't ever be used without a political agenda.

    And what you call irony, others may call whataboutery.

    Maybe, but they're still chicks

    Quite.

    Get a bloke to do it. Essentially it is still a chick for the same reasons as the previous scantily clad chick.

    The sort of fúcking pervert that would attend a motor show in the first place probably gets more hot under the collar about the bint dressed up as Stig from Top Gear as he does a bint with her bits on show.

    Terrific!



    It's basically the Great Women's Football Fallacy all over again.

    It's all allies of convenience, I'm afraid. Islamists know very well that the left will bend over backwards to accommodate them as long as they deliver votes in heavily muslim communities. The left are their useful idiots.

    First, you responded to the wrong post.

    Second, I have long opposed the use of the word 'whataboutery', by any side, as a way to shut down arguments that take an opposing view. It's just another magic word, like 'objectification' that is intended to shut people up.

    Third, despite previous indocrination by puritanical feminism, I now simply reject its prudish hatred of sex, together with all of the bull**** vocabulary which is used to bolster that position. You should too, my friend.
