Danish Army Al Fresco Peeing Scandal

#1
Scandal of the day here in Denmark is the photo on page 14 of the Danish Army Signal Corps magazine 'Telegrafen'.

There has been a lot of criticism from politicians and in the media as it has been perceived as humiliating, and sexist.

I can't see the problem myself, as long as the girls were okay about (which it seems they are), even though I can't imagine photos like this being printed in 'Soldier', but what do you reckon, is it acceptable or not?

"Acceptability" is a tricky one to call: what it seems to hinge on here is whether or not the soldiers in question were genuinely ok with the pictures being published. If they were, it's certainly not humiliating for them. As to whether it's sexist: if this sort of fuss wouldn't be made in Denmark over similar photos of male soldiers, then the sexism is coming from the people that are making the fuss, not from the army or the publication.

Certainly more than acceptable for those of us, er, those of you who like women in uniform and watersports - two for the price of one :D

LLooks like the middle one has the makings for a great caption contest.

If they haven't got a problem with it, why should anyone else?

Why are they sponsoring this picture? Are they a Danish laxative manufacturer?

msr
P.S. What does this mean: hård omgangstone ?

Oh, and p.24 - Mmmmmm, Tuborg..... (Drool)
"Girls can also pish in a line formation"
Btw Tuborg is pish.

My favourite Danish saying is:'
"Jæg kan mæget godt lige dæg, men du må ik kneppe min røv"

First of all, that's really weird spelling, and secondly, I bet you'd let me if I got you drunk enough.

As a woman (and a feminist!), I don't find it sexist at all, but I have to say, I don't find it sexy either!

As another poster pointed out, there wouldn't be this fuss if it was guys, although it would probably hold my attention for a bit longer!
