Advertising and objectification: women's equality should come ...
The topic was the depiction of women in advertising. I was a guest on the panel with media analyst Jane Caro, advertising executives Russell Howcroft and Todd Sampson and host Wil Anderson. I argued: • That women continue to be portrayed in objectified, sexualised ways in advertising – and that it’s getting worse • That women are primarily depicted in normative ways as thin, white, anglo-saxon and idle • That images which would be considered sexual harassment if posted in a workplace are considered perfectly acceptable if posted on giant billboards in the public domain • That the regular dismissal of complaints suggests that ... market research, surveys and trends

Male disorder – what's wrong with Scottish men?
From Braveheart to breakfast porridge, the ­popular portrayal of our nation’s manhood remains that of a rugged kilt-clad hero, stoic at his best, out of touch with his feelings and prone to a spot of boozy chest-beating at worst. While the model of the metrosexual man – as comfortable with a spot of “guyliner” and nursing a baby as he is chopping wood or watching football – is seen as the pinnacle in the modern western world of what a man should be, this phase in the social evolution of men appears to have all but passed by the Scottish male, according to experts. Some of the nation’s ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Road rage is not an ongoing situation, it is a one-time occurrence that is usually over and done in minutes. Normally placid and non-violent personalities can engage in road rage if sufficiently frustrated and annoyed, but after the flare-up will even feel ashamed of what happened, and the resulting embarrasment will often preclude any future occurrence. Domestic violence on the other hand is definitely ongoing, and without the proper intervention will continue to increase in frequency and intensity.
