Why is porn ok but grid girls aren't?

"I was the only British grid girl that season [2004], that was back in the day when things were not all so uptight, the days where you did not feel like you were treading on eggshells and could be you and shine", Hallam said, who also won a bravery award from the House of Commons by donating bone marrow to her brother, who had leukemia, and saving his life.

Claire Williams has backed the decision by Formula 1 bosses to stop using "grid girls" from this season. Thirty-five years later however, many are wondering if grid girls do more harm than good.

A joint statement from governing body the FIA and the F1 Group said the choice would be made "on merit or by lottery".

Sean Bratches, managing director of commercial operations, said: "We feel this custom does not resonate with our brand values and clearly is at odds with modern day societal norms".

Coach and manager of the cheer squad Jools Purchase said cheerleading couldn't be compared to grid girls because of the athletic ability involved in the former.

No grid girls, no cheerleaders, female singers being told what to wear on stage, no models in magazines?!

"Formula E stopped using grid girls a year ago already, but we just didn't feel the need to shout about it". "We don't believe the practice is appropriate or relevant to Formula 1 and its fans, old and new, across the world". What's annoying me more than anything is the so called feminists, they are not even really feminists, are defending us without even asking us how we feel, and we've lost out jobs because of this. If a company relies heavily on pretty women promoting them, then maybe they need to rethink their brand.

Arizona and Nevada do not have such a requirement, nor do they mandate that dealers keep a record of ammunition transactions. Haig advertised armor-piercing incendiary ammunition on his website, which now says the business is "closed indefinitely".

He said motorsport using women in promotional positions "does not exclude" other women from having management or engineering roles with teams or championships.

Lauda said, "I think it's a great pity to break a tradition such as this, which does Formula 1 - but above all, women - no favors at all".

"This is a decision against women".

Fellow grid girl Rebecca Cooper wrote on Twitter: "Ridiculous that women who say they are "fighting for women's rights" are saying what others should and shouldn't do, stopping us from doing a job we love and are proud to do". This is not doing any favours to F1 and especially not for women.

Instead of using grid girls, Formula E allowed kids to take up the role, hopefully inspiring the next generation.

As with any potentially controversial issue, such as dealing with gender issues, there's a broad range of opinions about this grid girl situation.
