Cover her up! Hotel gets dressing down over 'sexist' blonde builder hoarding that's been likened to 'soft porn'



A hotel has been forced to cover up a building site hoarding after complaints that it is sexist.

Malmaison, in Manchester, had put up a risque 7ft image of a scantily clad woman holding a power tool to hide ongoing construction work.

But author and Manchester University Professor Jeanette Winterson likened the image to 'soft porn'.  She said: 'Plenty of women on business stay at the Malmaison.  'To get to their hotel room at the end of a long day they must take in, or blank out, the message that women at work are really soft-porn babes. 'The hard-hat babes send out a message that aligns with male fantasy not female reality.  'And that's a problem.

'Suppose you are a girl who wants to go into the manual trades. Does the image of a skinny model in a strapless frock, pouting with a drill, do anything for your self-confidence and ambition?'
In response, the hotel placed a tongue-in-cheek banner over the image saying 'we've been asked to cover up'

Feminists hate attractive women

After reading this article and seeing jonjayray's comment, I did a Bing search of Manchester University Professor Jeanette Winterson. When viewing the images of Professor Winterson, I had to conclude that jonjayray is correct. The professor is a plain, almost manish looking woman, and has probably been jealous of attractive women for most of her adult life.

You mean there are objective standards to beauty? Who knew?

Jealousy's a bitch, just like feminism.
