Anyone skilled at reading the political writing on the wall knows that Page 3 is under seige right now. In spite of a war to fight the military found time to attack and ban Page 3. Recent politicians running for Prime Minister made it a promise to get rid of Page 3 if elected. Page 3 has become public enemy number one. And unless it is defended vociferously by its fans, it won't be around much longer. The same thing happened to the Page 3 girl in Canada. Page 3's attackers claim that it is an outdated vestige of sexism that degrades and hurts women. Yet British women have more rights and freedoms than women just about anywhere else in the world. Semi-nude bodies might annoy curmudgeons, but their attacks on Page 3 only serve to prove how certainly freedom of speech exists. Only totalitarism dictatorships stifle dissent. Can there ever be a reason to move backwards towards that? The outdated vestige of sexism from the past that degrades and hurts women is the desire to control what women say and do. Page 3 is a modern victory over those ancient forces that want to keep women down. It features healthy, virtuous young women freely expressing their beauty without a trace of shame or sadness. It is an inspirational daily monument to women's power, beauty, and freedom to use it, and we say, "Let Page 3 stand!"
