Lip-filler house parties? Yup, apparently that's a thing. After all, what Canadian gal wouldn't want to look like one of those vacuous plump-lipped Jenner airheads?
I wouldn't have dreamed, back in the heady days of the great feminist awakening in the sixties and seventies, that it would be conceivable to read such a story in 2017.
This is pathetic!
And here's another story that underlines how far we haven't come, about the suicide of a Spanish trophy hunter who happens to be a woman. Here's a few quotes from a very brief story in the Toronto Sun:
- the title refers to her as a "hot hunter"
- in first paragraph she is a "sexy Spanish hunter"
- para four tells us of her "smouldering looks"
- in para six she's "a rifle-wielding beauty."
Practically every other paragraph (and in the Sun the paragraphs are really just sentences) contains a gratuitous reference to the hunter's appearance.
I wouldn't have thought I'd be seeing "journalism" like that in 2017 either.
