Use the women's body is oppression....unless is in purpose of feminist

Surfing the web I came across this kind of stupid campaign of British TV's most familiar women you can see here  where Gillian Taylforth, Beberley Gallard, Sherrie Hewson and Andrea Mclean get naked, let me explain what they are trying to prove.

 "The ladies spoke of the way that women, despite their talent, can be denied roles on camera simply because producers believe them to be too old."

What is their talent?

According to Wikipedia
Gillian Taylforth-actress
Beberley Gallard-actress
Sherrei Hewson-Actress, broadcaster and novelist
Andrea Mclean-TV presenter

If we take what they say, no matter your talent if you are old you are out, we can encounter very easy this kind of women who are very common since the last 30 years, first lets look for the meaning of the word talent:

special natural ability or aptitude.

An aptitude is an innate component of a competency (as opposed to knowledge, understanding, learned or acquired abilities (skills) and attitude) to do a certain kind of work at a certain level. Aptitudes may be physical or mental. The innate nature of aptitude is in contrast to achievement, which represents knowledge or ability that is gained.

So after when this women get their first job on TV they knew they were being hired because their bodies, that is their talent, they looked good young but after their talent (bodies) start falling apart they are useless, sexist? why? they don't have talent anymore, if they are old now and haven't acquired skills to do certain kind of work (act) at a certain level (their age) which may be physical (their bodies appearance) or mental (......) they never are going to do it. 

Here they admit it is all about their bodies they care about:
"And they proved that there was nothing old about their bodies with the daring photo shoot"

It is like saying "we still look good on TV"
If you click on the pic you don't see a single wrinkle, of course  they want to prove they are still good looking and I admit I'd hit the blonde on the left and the brunette on the right you can keep the other two, now when you search for pictures of them you notice they don't look like this, they try to sell something they are not.

If your talent is act,broadcast and write why get naked? you can make a short film and prove you are still  can act, but no, they don't.

"Gillian, 56, said she has found it increasingly harder to get work in television the older she gets.

She told the magazine: 'In TV, it's OK for men to be 50 or 60, but for women it's very difficult. Older actresses can feel put by the wayside.

'I left The Bill three years ago, and since then TV work has been harder to come by - it probably started in my late 40s.'
And Beverley, 54, agreed that the pressure has prevented her from enjoying getting older."

Listen, when you got true talent to work as an actor it doesn't matter how you look, Meryl  Streep is 62 years old and she is still there making movies,  Danny  DeVito is short, fat and bald, I can name hundreds but is the same in many job in the word.

"She also said that she believed the problem is getting worse, and that television writers may be at fault."

Remember is always somebody else fault.

She said: 'Women my age face a lack of parts because writers don't write about women in their 50s"

The funny every time I listen this kind of comments I ask: did you say that when you where in your teens/20s? haha they get upset because at that age teens girls tend to make fun of older women.

Encounter feminist Point of view 

Then we have the feminist paradigm of beauty, when women do this kind of campaign you don't see any feminist disagree  or demonize the magazine, because the purpose if this kind of campaign is a purpose  of feminism, get women to work no matter what,and this is some sort of discrimination against women, but what happen if you take the same picture and put it somewhere like this?:

Yeah you'll get a complain from feminist about the stereotype of using the women body to sell.

So paying  a model thousand and hundreds of thousand for pics when that is her job is discrimination against women but if they do the same because you get fire and can't get a job is sexual liberation, free speech etc.

That is why feminism doesn't make sense, they portray everything that don't suit them like sexism and discrimination  remember  if is in purpose of feminism  is equality. Sarcasm mode: ON
