Cambridge economist protests Brexit by giving lecture totally nude, letting people sign her naked body
“Brexit leaves Britain naked.” That was the message scrawled on economics scholar Victoria Bateman’s completely nude body during a recent lecture she gave at which audience members were also allowed to “create a living anti-Brexit petition by signing her bare body,”
(snip)
This is not the first time the University of Cambridge lecturer has taken on controversial issues by baring her breasts and vagina. In 2016, she protested Brexit in the same exact way: naked. And last summer, she went semi-naked to an end-of-term university dinner with the pro-abortion slogan “my body my choice” written on her upper chest and stomach.
Your ability to source obscure right-wing web sites remains remarkable, although i suppose it's just Troll Farm 101. A casual reader may have got the impression that this “lecture” was delivered to students at U of Cambridge, rather than at a live art and music venue.

Analysing Brexit is like dream interpretation: you can see whatever you want in it.

No strikes in the City of London  either! L is a parlour for bankers.

Of course Vera Lynn pops up everywhere here and there. She's British history! And a great voice too.

I've looked into this. It turns out that she's been getting her kit off to protest about this and that for ages. Her, ahem, style hasn't changed since the 1970s.

Could someone please explain to me. Ideally a woman, as I am only a man. If I were to do the equivalent to what that academic and the above did then I would end up on the sex register. Why can men not do this? (Except obvs for men who work at the BBC who are apparently always flashing their genitals.) And am I supposed to think more or less highly of them? (The women, not the breasts.) Or is it even sexist to think like that? And finally, am I allowed to stare?
