Super cool lady lawyers take lads’ mags to task
Lads, some female lawyers are trying to take your top shelf boobs away. These crazy hairy feminists (who probably throw themselves under horses in their spare time) have warned that under the Equality Act of 2010, selling or displaying lads’ mags in newsagents could constitute sexual harassment.
The legal loophole - which would mean the death knell for mags featuring pictures of Michelle Keegan covered in Reggae Reggae sauce and looking like she’s about to sneeze – is being used by a group of female lawyers from several legal practices to ban them outright. In an open letter, they warn newsagents and stores that they must stop selling the magazines or face legal action.
The campaign, which targets major stores like Tesco and Sainsburys as well as grubby grocers’ shops, is pulling no punches. Anna Mazzola, one of the lawyers who signed the petition against the magazines said: ‘The companies that own those shops should be aware that their legal position is precarious – making employees handle and sell these magazines will, in some circumstances, amount to unlawful sexual discrimination or harassment.'
The men who ‘read’ terrible magazines like Nuts and Zoo, in which women are tirelessly arranged in order of sexiness and breast curvature, were unavailable for comment because they were too busy having a hand shandy to a picture of some bird off Hollyoaks. But as soon as they’ve finished, they’ll probably say: ‘Ha! Women can’t be lawyers, can they?’
