If it were a man making this "point" he'd be arrested on the spot.... and if a female found it offensive he'd be charged with public indecency at the very least... and labelled a pervert.

Suspect College fellows probably petrified to intervene lest they be sacrificed on the alter of PC.

Can imagine their mutterings in the common room.. under their breathe of course.

Is a college professor with no clothes really any more ridiculous than an entitled politician with no clue?
........yes

Much as it was a nice view, flash makes a good point; any man doing the same would be arrested. Equality anyone?

Wrong.
The BBC appearance was only of the shoulders - no problem for man or woman.
The lecture was a closed event and the nudity was expected. If a man had the courage to do the same he should have been greeted in the same way.
Perhaps Mr Rees-Mogg could take up the invitation?

Mark my words, if a man had the balls (probably the wrong word in the circumstances but still) to do this he'd be crucified... perhaps not by all but by a significant minority, and then you'd have the complaints that the police feel "obliged" to investigate, pretty damned certain "equality" wouldn't apply in that case.

I don't mark your words because they are wrong. They are just your words.
I have been to theatre performances where a man has been naked on the stage. There were no complaints and no police investigation. If people are likely to be offended by nudity they ​​​​avoid going into a closed venue where nudity will occur.

She reminds me of when one of our granddaughters was 3 years old and she sometimes used to take
her clothes off when she didn't get her way. When that didn't work she just screamed and then sulked.
Of course she did finally grow out of that sort of childish nonsence. I now just wonder if Victoria will?

Nothing at all. It's just the human body. Clothing is an artificial construct invented to keep the body warm.

Oh come on! Centuries ago that statement was applicable. We've moved on.

Well, if any pretty girls want to flop their lals out and come and try to persuade me of the merits of Remain, I'm up for it.

Yes we've moved on to a point where it's good business to sell people new clothes every season because "the human body is disgusting"
Or you must hide your body because a prophet says so in case you inflame a man.

There is obviously a 'do' on this evening at one of the establishments in the village with (women only) queuing up, dressed in rainbow-coloured attire.
Apart from the unusualness of the style, it got me thinking (again) as to why it is considered appropriate for females to dress the way they do - ie differently to the way men dress.

Male clothing is basically utilitarian with leg covers and a garment that covers the upper body, whereas standard female attire leaves the legs largely uncovered.


Beyond that it is difficult to generalise, but if males adopted typical female dress it would be a situation for comment.

Dress code.

It’s a shame. Strikes me that I might rather agree with a lot of what she has to say but the pointless sensationalism rather devalues the argument

perhaps she’s a patsy for the other side?
