I think it sort of degrades men because it's some men that make idiots of themselves at seeing those girls.

Well, I considered it. In general

(1) inequality, gender stereotypes.

I have no problem with stewardesses etc, as long as gender roles aren't imposed too strictly in general (and empolyment opportunities are mostly equal). Funny traditions are a good thing.

Let they promote female astronauts instead may be?

(2)
I certainly see no problem with objectification. Yes, when I see an undressed lady, I do not see 'objectification', I see an undressed lady. If there is some, then the girls applying to this job like it! As everyone involved is fine...  what's the problem? Female viewers or what?

I need a strong reason to intervene and ban what other people enjoy.

Pros:
This short video would be of interest to English learners who think they know what “British accent” means.

Cons:
1. The so-called feminist they have chosen as a guest is indeed stupid. doesn’t seem to be have very cogent arguments to present.
2. I still have no idea what the four ladies do for a living.
3. Youtube is now suggesting I watch something called “The Dating Guru Who Says British Women Are 'Overweight' and 'Entitled' | Good Morning Britain.” Watch more videos about Brits? I think not ;)
4. Now I'll need to “delete cookies,” or whatever it’s called.

@KP - I pretty much agree with what you wrote, I think. The problem is "modelling" isn't like any other job: there are occasions where you want only females, only males, or a mixture of both (no problem here). If you are a gambling company, for example, and want to advertise to millions of predominantly male fight fans, then putting your logo on a male model's tight-fitting trunks in-between rounds isn't the best idea.


@Phil - They are all paid models. One is a boxing ring girl, one is a darts walk-in girl, one is a grid girl, and the other is a snooker walk-in girl. Regarding her lack of arguments, there isn't a lot to say, really. You either believe a business/individual should be allowed to hire a model(s), male or female, for advertising purposes and that it should be up to them to decide what gender of a model(s) they hire, or you believe it should be regulated somehow (ensuring a certain % of males get hired too, for example) or banned. Personally, I belong to the first group.
