"Formula 1 takes bold step towards eliminating gender pay gap by getting rid of most of its female staff."

More spewing of bollox - will it never stop ?

Yet more "virtue signalling" by Leftist idiots.

Strange how the feminist Nazis choose to concentrate upon this rather than organised rape or genital mutilation etc.

It's also strange how those that proclaim themselves to be "Liberal" feel able to interfere in other peoples' lives.

I despair of this country's political correctness on steroids.

Do you think the yanks will bin their cheerleaders?

Nope.... its entrenched in their college system... and their sport is so closely tied to cheerleaders as for cheerleading to be a seperate sport in its own right

Ladyboys or grid girls for the Thailand MotoGP ?

From Twitter just now:-


Hannah Louise
? @Hannah_James_6

I am a grid girl, I LOVE my job and I CHOOSE to do it! The issue at the moment is there are too many people being offended on behalf of people who are not offended at all!

I will be devastated if @OfficialBSB and @iom_tt follow suit.


.................. so, in exactly what way is this degrading to women FFS ?

................................................................ /media/file/133560.aspx



and as for the F1 Spokesman who said this - double gobbledef!$%ingook FFS!

Sean Bratches - F1 Commercial:
"While the practice of employing grid girls has been a staple of Formula 1 grands prix for decades, we feel this custom does not resonate with our brand values and clearly is at odds with modern day societal norms,"



Same twat:
"There will be a point in the season where we start to effectuate change," he said during the first pre-season test in Barcelona today.

How is F1 eliminating the gender pay gap if they are putting these women out of work? Are they offering them alternative roles that pay as much as the riders and the team bosses?

You will now see far less women involved in Formula One.

If you go out on a weekend there are plenty of young women dressed in far less than these grid girls paddlin-round on a Saturday night, what will be done to stop blokes looking at them as this may also be degrading to women :lol:
Also what about women on TV such as Holly Willoughby, Rachel Riley, Michelle Keegan etc what will be done about them? Duffle Coat, burkas :lol:

Perhaps we ought to adopt the muslim idea of covering women up totally... to stop impure thoughts....
Maybe pray to Allah for forgiveness.... adopt Sharia law....

Its funny how grid girls are now being targeted as "at odds with modern day societal norms"....

Sean Bratches - F1 Commercial:
"While the practice of employing grid girls has been a staple of Formula 1 grands prix for decades, we feel this custom does not resonate with our brand values and clearly is at odds with modern day societal norms,"



when any 8 year old with access to a PC or Ipad etc can go onto U Tube and watch dog fighting, syrian POW's being burnt, bayoneted or clubbed to death and then switch channels to watch any number of free porn channels showing hard core porn any time of the night or day.

FFS this is now the Society Norms, unlimited access to the internet is robbing some kids of any sense of morality to violence, sex and the basic wrongs and rights of life and yet the left wing w!$%ers can only come up with grid girls!.

Broken Britain.

Thing is, they still have grid girls/podium girls at Qatar. They are just dressed more consevatively, but, the key point is, they are still there.

Can't find the article again but it was speaking to Melinda Messenger ( her of page 3 fame ) who basically said she was a grid girl , really enjoyed it , made good money from it , but thinks it shouldn't be allowed now ,
wtf :speechless::speechless: , how can she complain about the "objectification" of women when she would be a nobody if she hadn't got her tits out , f!$%ing hypocrite .
At least Kelly Brook (another page 3) said she did her stint as a grid girl , enjoyed it immensely , made good money , and thinks there is nothing wrong with it's continuance .

Personally it doesn't bother me wether they use grid girls or not, but as said on above posts , it's a shame for these girls who enjoy doing it and who are these minority feminist groups really harming in the long term ?

They come from the "we haven't got any tits so we resent pretty girls who have" camp. Faces like they've been sucking dog turds.

That seems a totally sensible way to go. put a dress code in place.

But then the militant feminists/LBGTQ crowd would find something not to their liking.

To modern thinking objectifying wimmin and all that is a no-no but I think banning them was a knee jerk reaction.

These are the thoughts of one "Grid Girl" .....the spectacularly named Lottie Gash!..........on the subject:

"It's upsetting and I'm rather disgusted that F1 have given in to the minority to be politically correct," Gash told BBC Radio 5 live.

"I'm one of the lucky ones that I don't rely on this as a main source of income, but there are girls out there who do.

"I know the grid girls are there to look pretty when they're out on the grid but my role was interacting with the crowd and we were there as an advertisement for the sponsors. We love doing it we don't want it taken away from us."

Hopefully the heads of motorcycling racing , motoGP, WSB, BSB, etc have a bit of common sense and tell these feminist groups to piss off , but I rather feel they'll fold with the pressure to be PC
