Shows like Geordie Shore show women and men on the lash
The English comedienne, Dawn French, caused a stir when she spoke out against “ladette culture”, the British scourge abroad.
Here are some of her comments about seeing a programme on lasses “on the lash” in Ibiza (for Ibiza read Mallorca, Kavos, Malia, Laganas, Agia Napa):-
They go out and get utterly hammered and are shagging in a bush, acting like the men we hoped we wouldn’t ever be like, and certainly not mimic as women — being champions of the shag machine and going home and throwing up… is that what women flung themselves in front of horses for?
[In response, Georgette Culley wrote in The Sun: “Rolling around in bushes, skinny dipping and dancing on tables are some of my fondest memories.” She added: “Women shouldn’t be telling other women how to behave”.]
