Women are too stupid to understand the consequences

That is the thrust of this whiney article from Zoe Margolis, alias The Girl, on the subject of footballers and their spit-roasting parties.
In reporting the alleged rape of a young woman at the Manchester footballers' party, the Guardian described how young female shop assistants were "harvested"—the prettiest young women approached with an invite—to attend the event. The chosen girls were not paid to be present, but there was an implicit expectation that they would "entertain" the footballers in return for the hospitality they received and the access they obtained to celebrity culture.

So, despite the "implicit expectation that they would "entertain" the footballers", the girls went along with it anyway. In fact, one could say that they were happy to exchange the "hospitality they received and the access they obtained to celebrity culture" in return for sex with multiple partners.

If, as Zoe implies, they knew that this was the deal and yet still went along with it, what is the problem precisely?

But I'm not going to fisk it any further because this neatly illustrates the whole central implication of Zoe's article: that women are too stupid to understand the quid pro quo or too weak-willed to say "no" when push comes to fuck.

And I thought that she was supposed to be a feminist?

It's an invitation for Chrissake.

There's no bleeding compulsion here. Accept or reject as you choose. Are these women thick or simply dissimulating?

Why must it be either/or?

"Are these women thick or simply dissimulating?"

Neither - they are just calculating little tarts. Fit companions for the young, dumb, barely civilized modern footballer.

They truely deserve each other...

Zoe has no idea what the fuck she is talking about: now that she can't fuck anonymously and can't get a date because everyone knows who she is, she's flaunting her GCSE writings on CIF.

I agree these girls know exactly what they're doing. And like Mitch I'm sick of it - and, handily, I have written about it.

This woman's sophomoric witterings have long grated on my nerves. She seems to think that calling herself a feminist gives her the right to speak on my behalf.

Zoe leave it out. You lack intellectual gravitas. Even worse, you lack a sense of humour.

Very amusing article from the 'girl with a one track mind'. All the correct bogeymen are there: men, the pornagraphy industry, etc: along with the required solution; the need to 'stimulate debate' and to 'challenge old-fashioned views', to 'effect some change'. And all this from a bit of an old dog, who is doing the best she can to climb on to the capitalist gravy-train on the strength of her having handed out her lacklustre charms to any man who looked her way!

When she was outed she complained of invasion of he private life, which she had been incessantly broadcasting on her blog. She can dish it out but she can't take it.

[IMO]These girls are more than likely bleating after the fact so that they can do a kiss n tell in the NOTW.

If any of you have been unfortunate enough to have been shown some of the dreadful videos that do the rounds on mobiles, usually chav's and neds involved in gangbangs or at the very least public sex.

The only difference here is money. And to be brutally honest, if you look at the places these footballers originally come from, it's just the same behaviour with champagne and decent plonk instead of buckfast and soda water.
