Buy the Warwick Rowing Girls Calendar Now!

The Warwick Rowing girls fund-raising calendar, which HTBS wrote about on 29 November, has received some criticism for being 'tacky', and the young ladies are being called traitors to the feminist cause by a female student blogging for the Huffington Post. I am not surprised because each time a naked butt is shown - and that butt belongs to a non-professional 'model' - that person, often then a young lady (because who among the feminist protesters make a fuss if the naked body part belongs to a slightly older woman?) has to explain herself why she allows herself to be exploited. No, I say, she does not have to excuse herself, there is no law saying that you always have to be 'politically correct'...

In the case of the female Warwick rowers - they called themselves 'Warwick Rowing girls' on their Twitter account - they are posing tastefully nude in a charity calendar to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. I would say that these ladies are on an honorary mission and as many people as possible should help them by buying their calendar.

I was happy to read that Emma Barnett, the Women's Editor in the Daily Telegraph, is standing behind the Warwick Rowing girls in an article published yesterday. Read it here.

And before I forget, a link to where you can find their nice and funny calendar is here. Buy more than one calendar, buy one for your sister, mother, grandmother, aunts, I am certain they would all be happy to receive it.
