I wonder what the future holds for Pretty Girls. Seems a bit bleak. I mean, I spose the ones with Talent & Skills will be ok, but what about the rest of them? No more highly paid acting, modelling, dancing & pr gigs for you! You're gonna have to join the minimum wage treadmill with the rest of us rip.

There will always be an opening for a trophy wife somewhere, but that's only for the 'Pretty Girls' with no ambition to carve out their own niche in life as a hot-pant-wearing, high-kicking, corporate event ho.

Any bar where the staff are All Attractive needs shutting down imo. Sounds a very sexist operation. We can't have true equality until 95% of  front of house staff are absolute horrors, in line with General Population trends.

Voted down  @Under the thumb Bearsybecause being the eye candy is a requisite of being a bar girl especially in the dives I frequent.

 It was a very articulate speech. However there are a few aspects of the whole saga i am a bit uncomfortable with. Oprah has been around the entertainment industry in America for decades, very high profile. The behaviour of Harvey Weinstein has obviously been common knowledge for decades. There is a clip from the Oscars ceremony from years ago which was in the press a few months ago, in which after the winning actress received her award, the actor presenting it to her said, "now you no longer have to pretend that you are attracted to Harvey Weinstein". Cue knowing laughter from all round the room. I find it difficult to believe that Oprah, along with most of the Hollywood big players was unaware of Weinstein's behaviour. Likewise Meryl Streep, who has been photographed many times over the years draped around him, she even described him as 'God' from the stage at one awards ceremony. And of course it was Streep, at the Oscars a few years ago, who led the standing ovation for Roman Polanski, a fugitive from justice who was convicted of plying a thirteen year old girl with alcohol and narcotics, then proceeded to anally rape her.

It is difficult to escape the conclusion that these people chose to ignore and keep quiet about Weinstein's behaviour over the years because it suited their career prospects to do so. Now, after a few brave women, (and men), have put their heads above the parapet and exposed him, the likes of Streep and co feel able to swan around the red carpet in their black dresses with their 'Me to' badges, an 'activist' on their arm, because again, it now suits their career to do so. The hypocrisy, especially in the case of Streep, is quite frankly sickening. It is nothing more than virtue signalling, seeing a bandwagon and jumping on.

Another thing i find puzzling is that, months after the allegations first started surfacing, both in the US and, in Weinstein and Kevin Spacey's case, here in the UK, neither has been interviewed by the police. It is beyond doubt that if any of us were the subject of multiple accusations of sexual assault, up to and including rape, we would have been hauled in the next day, fingerprinted, swabbed and interrogated. Yet for these high profile 'celebrities', nothing, zilch, no action at all from the forces of law and order. How does that work?

 Both are "healing" at various retreats - they need time to deal with their demons, don't you know

Feminism is a luxury of the established classes, rise up women quite correctly but on the way don't upset others cultural beliefs no matter no homophobic, sexist or racist they are as well, thats their cultural entitlement, this was on the BBC a while back about different strands of feminism and where they rank within different races and faiths.

In short the end result was feminism in the west is a middle class thing and others around the World have other things to worry about and consider their cultures and religions more important or see them as an addition to their culture and faith which is acceptance of homophobia, sexiam and racism in the name of culture and religion.

The World will only become a better place when all women are free to choose their destiny.

PDC to scrap walk-on girls after broadcaster talks

A step too far or the right call?

I'm divided myself, I don't see what they achieve but if the girls are happy to do it.....would a player have a walk on bloke?

And what about the dancing girls on stage in skimpy clothes? Are they going to scrap them too?

I don't watch darts so wasn't aware of these 'walk-on girls' and frankly in 2018 couldnt believe this was still something. A bit like the presidents club dinner. Do female darts players have 'walk-on boys'? They are a pointless element and totally ridiculous in this day and age. Are the women happy to do it? Maybe, it is hopefully well paid and they are likely happy with the possible fame. 

Dancing girls -what kind?

 They are talking about getting rid of the F1 grid girls too. What are they there for other than to sex things up a bit?  If the poor loves cant find their own way to the oche or to their cars by themselves why does it have to be young, fit, buxom women who show them the way? I'd do it for half the price!

Darts players are finely tuned athletes. It's not like your pub game, the smallest change in humidity or altitude can throw off their game. Phil Taylor has worn the same pair of shoes for 23 years. 

They won't find it easy to adjust if they're suddenly expected to play without a boner. Will ruin the game imo.

 Does the boner give balance like weights on archery bows?

This is where it is getting out of hand in my opinion.

That is not a bow and arrow. Robin Hood will be turning in his grave.

If this is your feminism, I'm sorry girls, you can keep it.

 Couldn't agree more Bearsy, finely tuned athletes they are.

I'm not sure this is Feminism tbh. It feels more like cracking down on Fitbody Privilege. No longer can tight buns gain you easy access to the walking and standing around industries! You're gonna have to put them tight buns to graft shovelling sewage and collecting dustbins with the rest of us! Get with the programme, fitbodies!  It's 2018!

 If they keep their boner in hand whilst walking behind the girls, I 'm pretty sure the femanists are going to grizzle a bit.
