is it poor form that the thought of an in-depth, no definite answers, free-for-all, serious debate makes my stomach turn?
everytime i see a blog on the guardian with 200+ replies....i just think....fuck it...absolutely fuck it. what's the point of even reading, even trying to form an opinion.
i can't even be bothered to have a quick skim to see if i agree/disagree with anything being said.
....too many opinions....it's all to big.....
same on here sometimes to some extent.
like this....who could be fucked....400 odd comments

''Having read more of the comments, it seems the issue is legality, and the printers' fear of legal reprisals, but I have to say your explanation of the situation didn't really make this clear. If the law explicitly treats naked men as different from naked men then this is unequivocally sexist (but against whom? That is a question in itself...) but alongside you say it isn't; so the problem seems to be that "the Obscene Publications Act is notoriously vague". A small firm being cagy faced with the, however slight, possibility of an enormous legal bill is understandable, a symptom of the intrinsic unfairness of the legal system. However, it is a huge leap from the situation you describe to an assumption of institutionalised sexism; and even if you do accept it's sexism it's perfectly possible to argue it as sexism against men - why do women have the right to earn money by flashing their bits and men don't?''
you didn't did you, you lazy fuck?
good. so it's not just me.
