Not wanting to start a war - just interested to know if anyone is a bit shocked by that thread's title alone, especially in the current climate re: sexism?

Maybe DS should have a 'top shelf' part of the site for this kind of thing? Or we could start a 'best penises on tv' thread (but, see, it never works the other way round!)

Asking if only women are shocked is sexist I'd say.

The title has put me off from taking a look, so no idea if it's more of a tongue-in-cheek, rather than hand-down-trousers (if you know what I mean) sort of thread but it does seem quite a sad idea.

An interesting choice of thread.

How do the "women" that object to the boobs thread feel about websites like Chaturbate. How do they convince themselves that men are evil when there is such stromg evidence that women like rape fantasies and BDSM. How do they accept the significant number of women who are Submissive. And how do they cope with the reality that a majority of women LIKE men ogling their bodies?

Some of this applies in reverse. But the hardcore femenist agenda fails the reality test.

Surely the place for expressing any concerns is in an e-mail to Forum Support?

I've never been on it in the same way that I've not been on other threads on the site that don't interest me. Is it full of adolescent boys? Just from the title that seems to be who it's for, bless.

There's nothing wrong with men looking at women's breasts.

Who gives a toss what women think? They have the Soaps, Doctor Who, X Factor, Strictly, BGT, Showbiz, Music, Advice to prattle on about their things. Let us have one thread for god sake.

What's there to be shocked at? Men like boobs, they're programmed to, the boobs thread is simply an outlet to share that like. Same with women and slash fics and gay men with Gay Spy. Feel free to start a best pecs thread.

Me neither, I just ignore what I am not interested in. I am not the Board police.

No, not at all.

It's just a bunch of sad lads who don't have girlfriends, sharing very tame pictures.

I've popped in there occasionally and looked at the pictures being posted. There are so many with fake boobs, it's laughable. Is that what they get off on? God help the day they finally encounter a real woman!

Don't any of them have girlfriends/wives, or at least the capacity to find one?

Real boobs sound a lot, lot better than talking about them with strangers.

Do you have any evidence of this?

I personally hate men ogling my body. And so do all of my friends. I can't speak for all women but I find your 'majority of women' assumption a little unrealistic. I could just as easily say that the 'majority of men' are rapists. Which of course is total codswallop. But it's about as accurate as your statement.

I've never heard of Chaturbate. I guess the same argument applies to the No More Page 3 debate. Just as pictures of naked women are ok in lads mags and online but not in a daily newspaper, maybe people are objecting to the Best Boobs thread being on a forum about TV programmes. It's all about context.

I haven't looked at the threads as I am not interested in the subject matter! I do think, however, that it is nothing to do with TV! It should. therefore, be in a different forum. In my opinion!

Shocked? No

Disappointed that women are reduced to a pair of mammary glands? A bit

Do I care THAT much? No, not really, as long as it's done in the spirit of admiration rather than degradation, because all women are so much more than just a pair of boobs

Not shocked but I think it's nasty, demeaning and very old fashioned.

A lot of women post in DS about Great British Bake-Off. Imagine ogling other people baking cakes and talking about it with strangers...baking your own cakes sounds a lot, lot better...

Start a best penis one then, no-one will give a dam, some of us don't just look for something to complain about.

Indeed.

It seems jarringly out of place here. Hardly shocking, but the kind of mindless titillation I'd expect to see on some more down market forum.
