BBC's Poldark costume drama series main female suporting actor Heida Reed has said the national obsession with her co-star Aidan Turner's well formed torso is reverse sexism. Reed added that she's a supporter of international movement ‘Free The Nipple’, which sees women baring their breasts on social media to prove that men and women should both be allowed to be walk around topless.
Ross Poldark gets em out for the girls.
Turner, who plays Ross Poldark and numbers a Vampire named Mitchell (Being Human), a Hobbit (or dwarf perhaps) named Killi (The Desolation of Smaug and The Battle of the Five Armies) and Dante Gabriel Rosetti (Desperate Romantics) among his credits, has attracted millions of viewers to the hit BBC drama every Sunday night and his regular topless appearances on the programme have made headlines.
Icelandic actress Reed, who appears as Elizabeth, the wife of Poldark's useless cousin said “I think there should be the same standard for both sexes when it comes to things like this."
Well us lads might be all for Poldark's female characters going topless so long as its Eleanor Tomlinson (Demelza Poldark - left) who gets 'em out for the boys and not the frigid, simpering Elizabeth who has all the sexual allure of cabbage soup.
And FFS don't mention that women might actually like seeing the body of a physically attractive a male, oh no! Women are just so far above that kind of thing, a puritanical spinster who has never worked in a factory or large office might think. To suggest women might like to look at attractive men and enjoy a little fantasy as much as men like seeing attractive females is unthinkable. Because that could mean women are guilty of sexism and lets face it, sexism is racism!!!.
By the way, how is it, the human race hasn't become extinct yet? Could it be anything to do with the fact that most of us (the ones whose genes we want to survive anyway) like a bit of totty?
Do these whining, emotionally constipated women ever take a break from their screeching to actually think about what they are saying? "Free the Nipple" campaign is about inequality, apparently. Women should be allowed to walk around topless because men are free to do so - but half naked women on Page 3 of The Sun or in lad mags like Loaded or Nuts are male chauvinist piggism? Appreciation of the male is "reverse sexism" - not being able to get your tits out in church or the supermarket is "gender inequality". Typical double standards from the hypocritical left.
It's hard to know whether feminists are surreally stupid, so shallow they'd evaporate on a warm day, or simply so full of hatred for all things male they have lost their reason.
And while they are screeching about 'equality' do they ever stop to think that in a truly equal society, lefties would be constrained by their own 'hate speech' laws to stop spouting irrational shite like this?
