The mystery complainer demanded the event be cancelled - and wanted the bar owners prosecuted for sexism.

Is that actually a crime in Scotland?

This is probably not a good thread in which to bemoan the loss of Bill Tarmey.

So wait...

Ugliest woman contest with real women = sexist and apparently illegal.
Ugliest woman contest with men in drag = funny and lawful.

I'm not entirely sure I grasp the logic here. Couldn't men dressing up as women for the purpose of mocking "ugly" women be considered sexist? Would using real women be okay if it were other real women doing the judging?

When you makes offending people illegal logic is one of the first things to go out the window.

People having fun and hurting no one = fine
Making ugly people feel bad = bad

Not that I agree it should be illegal, but still, it's fine.

So let me get this straight....

It's *NOT* sexist, because 'ONLY MEN' are allowed to compete? Gotcha. That makes sooo much sense.

Of course, they were only wearing make-up to make up some mocking stereotype of what a woman is. It's not as if they pretended they were black.

Ok. Now replace every mention of 'dressing up as a woman' with 'dressing up as a black person', and see if you're still amused. If not, why not? Because women haven't historically been used as chattel and/or maimed, raped or killed? Oh.

I get it: you think "MTF" transsexuals ought to be punished for dressing like they feel.

What did that big bad tranny do you, snookums?

I think transsexuality is a pathetic delusion, but I'd never forbid them to cross-dress. For one thing, they're fun to point & giggle at.

Look at it this way: most "MTF" trannies are manly-looking in an unpretty way even after they "transition." These guys in drag are manly-looking in an unpretty way without bothering with hormones & surgery.

Feel better now?

Ugly women should not allowed to be spectators at such a contest, so they won't be offended.
