Well apparently "The Professional Darts Corporation (PDC)" CAVED in to feminism...and now there is blow back!

Darts girls: More than 15,000 sign petition to reverse walk-on ban
More than 15,000 people have signed a petition to reverse a ban on walk-on girls during darts matches.

"Not only would we break tradition but women would be out of work also," wrote David Shaw who created the online document.
Earlier this week The Professional Darts Corporation (PDC) announced it would no longer use walk-on girls in its tournaments.
Some fans and players say the ban takes away a key part of the experience.

...
The Women's Sport Trust tweeted: "We applaud the Professional Darts Corporation moving with the times and deciding to no longer use walk-on-girls. Motor racing, boxing and cycling... your move."

Well sure they're against it. They were thrown out of work.

Official feminists never quite say it, but they want it to be illegal for a woman to earn a living on her looks (maybe with some sort of conditional celebrity exception).

UPDATE: Bitter Feminists Go After The Hot Cheerleaders.
Formula One has officially canned their so-called "grid girls," the female models used in promotional tasks in the pit-lanes and starting grids before and after races.
...
"While the practice of employing grid girls has been a staple of Formula 1 Grands Prix for decades, we feel this custom does not resonate with our brand values and clearly is at odds with modern day societal norms," said Sean Bratches, managing director of commercial operations at Formula One. "We don't believe the practice is appropriate or relevant to Formula 1 and its fans, old and new, across the world."

Consider the hypocracy, here is a group of 'feminists' at one of their "slut walk" events....

This is called "empowerment."

Now, consider the "dart-girls"

This is called "objectification."

Updated to fix images...
Weird how the original images went bye-bye, GO figure.

You are presuming that everyone involved in feminism has the same opinion about these things.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Well, no.

However, considering that "mainstream feminism" seems to say NOTHING to dissuade women from participating in these "slut-walks,"
(think of the empowerment), their apparent silence speaks volumes.

Agreed!

Make you a deal gnome, you find a 'feminist' organization that speaks out against "slut walks" (w/o calling it "empowerment")
and I will stop pointing out their hypocrisy...for THIS issue.

In other news we have: UA recruiting ‘feminist’ interns to fight ‘heterosexism’
e University of Arizona (UA) is recruiting “feminist” interns to help fight “racism, classism, sexism, ableism, and heterosexism” on campus.

Hosted by the school’s Women’s Center, the FORCE: Feminists Organized to Resist, Create, and Empower program recruits student interns each semester to help create a “feminist community” and host educational programs for UA students.

“We are a collective of feminist, social justice oriented individuals dedicated to raising awareness on issues of gender and inequality,” the program description notes, adding that the group seeks to nurture “activism, events, and consciousness-raising engagement” on campus.

It's more the Venn diagram of sorts that I'm interested. Of the different kinds of people and opinions I wonder how much overlap there really is between people that object to show models are fine with "slut walks".

There's another issue I didn't bring up, that people marching in a "slut walk" have different motivations than someone employed to be an attractive person in skimpy clothes.

Unless you decide to oversimplify the issue into "sexiness bad, modesty good" or its opposite there's still not necessarily any hypocrisy. That's a rhetorical trick, not a real argument.

Or that the opinion is inconsistent in the first place. You can be against out of context objectification of women for commercial purposes yet support a woman's right to present her sexuality as she pleases without being raped.

If you look at the first picture, those in it have messages painted on them that make it clear that this is the context of their being in revealing clothing. "My outfit is not an invitation" and "Still not asking for it."

The whole point of the first picture is to protest the objectification that is implied by things like the dart girls.

Even if you gave me a thousand years, the gulf between "would not" and "would" in those two images is still greater than I could ever possibly express in words.

Methinks the lady doth protest too much

I think that it is a cry for attention. Though I agree with the premise.
