Also, the piece I was due to tear to shreds – a sickening article in The Telegraph where a quite frankly amateurish “scientific” study on rape at the University of Leicester was further misinterpreted to say that a. women who dress provocatively deserve a raping and b. men who sleep around a bit are more likely top be rapists (puh-lease!!) – was pulled and apologised for by the aforementioned pseudo-intellectual right-wing rag. Cheers to Ruth for pointing it out though.
However, I have found something else to get my hairy, gluten-free goat. The Heil website leads with this piece:
To spare you the horror of having to read these loathsome twats’ ‘work’, I will summarise:
- Elle MacPherson has some cellulite just above her knees.
- The fact that Elle, 45, has some cellulite just above her knees is of some surprise.
- Elle is 45. Elle shouldn’t be 45, or something.
- And, the biscuit-taker (direct quote):
'Creping is also more common in skinnier people. Fat tends to pad out the skin and supports it more. If you have a very low body mass index like Elle does then basically you have skin travelling over muscle with no fat in between. Whereas if she was slightly plumper, she would not have the creping phenomenon as much.'
Ooh I could crush a grape.
So women should not have cellulite. They also, it seems, should not get older. Especially not if they are supermodels. Furthermore, they should not be skinny. Yet, inevitably, people get a. older and b. their metabolism slows down.
So what to do? Cull all women above the age of 35. Especially if they’re really attractive former models. Shit, time’s running out Karo…
