Freshers ‘Shagchart’ poster provokes accusations of sexism

Freshers ‘Shagchart’ poster provokes accusations of sexism

By now you should have settled into fresher’s week quite nicely. The nerves have gone, you’ve done all the tedious registration stuff and you’ve probably made some pretty good friends. This is great.

But you may have had the misfortune of meeting the standard gaggle of lads, marauding around and getting a bit handsy.

This hasn’t been helped either by such companies as Climax Promotions who are currently getting a lot of heat for handing out a ‘shagchart’ for lads to fill in during their first week escapades.

To some, this may seem like some Richard Keys style ‘banter’, but it has deeply offended many people.

Tweets such as these have started to flood Twitter:

 

 

In the same week that Emma Watson made worldwide headlines with an impassioned speech whereby she reached out to men in an attempt to promote female rights, it may to some seem odd that Climax didn’t rethink their marketing strategy.

 

 

Cardiff’s student union have officially opposed the company’s recent actions, with its Vice President of Welfare, Faraz Alauddin, telling Mail Online: “Promoters will try and jump onto everything. Climax has nothing to do with us; we try and kick them off. They shouldn’t be here, they shouldn’t be on campus.”

 

But what do you think? Let us know via Twitter or Facebook.
