Transcript MEDIA WATCH, At the last program meeting, members decided to take an active part in attempting to monitor one of the programs on radio which we believe to be so blatantly sexist. Members were also invited to make their own views known about certain ads in radio and television. We will be watching all the media and make an attempt to not only clean up the sexist attitudes, but possibly educate the public about why we,find these things offensive. One of the best tactics, we decided, will be to quit buying products which sponsor such behavior. So we will be keeping a list of the offenders. I'm sure that you are all aware of the sell of the Houston Post to the Toronto Sun. For those who have not followed this closely let me stir up your anger. The Toronto Sun is a newspaper that emphasizes a steady diet of sex, sensationalism, catchy writing and some of the most opinionated columnists in journalism. To quote an article from the Chronicle, Oct. 22, 1983..."We like girls with big boobs and short stories," Sun columnist Paul Rimstead said in a Wednesday column of advice for the Houston Post Staff". Another quote.."The kind of stories they concentrate on are the rape and robbery stories. They stick to sexier subjects...."The sun's editorial policy is 'if we ^weep out the liberals, there will never be anybody else mooching off the system."...speaking about one of the daily features of the Sun, the Sunshine Girl,...They don't make an apology when they run pictures every day of a good looking girl in the paper. And all of the feminists in the world can write in."... The editor of the Sun is a woman, Barbara Amiel.(ed. note, makes you ashamed, doesn't it?)...."On professional grounds I think there is nothing unappealing about an attractive woman or man, " Ms. Amiel said of the Sunshine Girls and Boys. "But I would do with a few less gays (posing as Sunshine Boys), she added. "I think women can tell them a mile off."., (ed. note-wonder if she would like a few less gay women too, but then maybe she can't tell them a mile off). Another quote ..."I've got only one complaint about the women's movement," she adds. "They insist that I be equal and I always thought I was superior."...(ed. note-it has always surprised me that those persons who thought they were so superior, for what ever reason, have always been proved to be soooooo...ignorant.) For those of us who are Post readers and/or subscribers, I propose that we watch carefully to see if the format of the paper does change. Then I suggest we boycott and do our best to rid our town of thls garbage.
