Boobs on Bikes
Ms Casey is also threatening to lie across Queen St with friends to stop the parade.”If the council can’t win and the court can’t win, maybe people power, maybe woman power can …
Dr Casey has really missed the point of what Steve Crow is trying to do.
If she got over her silly feminist-knee-jerk reactions and paused for a moment to think, she’d realise that she is behaving in exactly the way Crow wants someone to react.
Crow needs the self appointed moral guardians and feminazis to scream their heads off, the louder they scream, the better the publicity.
Really Crow is in a win win situation and good luck to him. There’s no doubt this is simply a publicity stunt, but then it’s no more commerical than the Santa Parade which is now a bunch of corporate and business sponsors pushing their wares in the form of logo’s and ‘themed’ floats. I see no difference between the two, or in fact any other event that uses sponsorship.
Steve’s Boobs on Bikes parade is selling sex, the McDonalds float at the Santa Parade is selling hamburgers.
We haven’t seen the Foodnazis get stuck into the Santa Parade just yet, but believe me it’s coming. No doubt we’ll have Sue Kedgley and her mates threatening to lie down in front of floats that promote what they deem to be unhealthy food.
Auckland City has a whole bunch of quite basic issues that Dr Casey could get exercised about. I guess it’s also useful for her to raise her public profile by making a fuss over something that is forgotten in an hour, versus the long hard slog and effort required to fix up the roads and footpaths.
It could be that really both Dr Casey and Steve Crow win out of this, maybe they even have an agreement? Because this sort of superficial event serves the moral majority and feminazis by allowing them to take a public stand and demonstrate their effectiveness to their support base, and Steve to appeal to his (and help promote the Sexpo).
I was impressed at how chilled out Banksie has become, he has kept a low profile over this and this probably demonstrates that he realises that making a fuss just plays to Steve Crow’s audience.
Stopping the parade won’t stop pornography, which has been around since man worked out how to scratch images on the cave wall. And while Dr Casey may have deluded herself into thinking she is going to single-handedly stop pornography by making a stand, she needs to spend 5 minutes on the ‘net to realise she would be better off worrying about the footpaths.
Dr Casey needs to get a life. We live in a free country and if a bunch of people want to drive down Queen Street for 15 minutes without their tops on, then that’s fine by me, you don’t have to watch!
