The Sexy Men of the Public Service

By RiotPost 11 November 2009 20

For all those that thought Canberra men had been emasculated by working for the public service, there is the the Cam and Lisa Men of the Public Service Calendar competition.

How can you say no?


      Its the Ninja Turtle that won us over to Brian.

      What’s Your opinion?

      Lighten up dudes and dont take this calendar thing so seriously. Its just a bit of fun that had bought a bit of entertainment to quite a few public service offices around the city. Whilst there are no future Cosmo centrefolds in there, most dont aspire to be……but just to have a bit of fun. Well, maybe just a couple of the entrants are up themselves.

      It raises a bit of money for cancer as well, which is not a bad thing either. An interesting point was that on channel 9’s Today show two or three mornings ago the Men of the Public Service calendar site rated as in the top five accessed sites in all of Austalia, so someone must have been looking at it. According to 106 they got thousands of votes, and people could only vote once….so it must have got a bit of attention in that respect as well. I think a big fault in our public service city is that we do take ourselves too damm seriously.

      I think objectifying someone is when you cut them up into little body bits and leave the personality and preciousness out. I think there’s nothing wrong with admiring people. As long as it’s respectful.

      Have the police thought about exhuming your back yard?

      Tool are you actually upset about the objectification of men in this calendar? Or just upset about a hypothetical question? (I’m genuinely interested in whether any men find this calendar off-putting, or not.)

      Of course it objectifies men. Women like to perve just as much as men do, and allowing them to do this is every bit as nullifying as when men do it to women.

      I think they’re mostly adorable!

      🙂

      Interestingly I was reading on wikipedia the other day about a study showing that lecturers were rated almost identically by their students after a full year as they were after meeting the person for just thirty seconds. Also the thirty second ratings were very similar to ratings from a picture alone. It seems that we can get enough of the non-verbal clues through a photograph alone to determine whether someone is a person we are likely to connect with or not.

      I definitely find the muscly ones less attractive, though.

      This is my favourite part…

      I bet if it was a sexiest women of the public service, some minority group would whine about it being sexist, or discriminatory, and about how women are more than good looks and a tight body; funny how it is so openly accepted because it is men….I wonder if this is endorsed by the ACT Government?

      Yes, I’m sure that all these guys could not have gotten anywhere without their looks…even today, job interviews for men in the public service are just ‘drop your pants and pray they don’t bite.”

      (Seriously mate, I don’t think any of these blokes will be crying in their rooms after midnight about how nobody sees past their ninja-turtle/bikie looks)

      Neil (No 20) should hook up with Charmyne Palavis – they’re the same colour 😀

      Cam and Lisa suck… It’s a feeble grab for ratings.

      There’s obviously a large number of public servants that populate this fair city and being small time radio announcers they have nothing in common with any of them.

      It’s a fail in my opinion.

      Tool, I think you can get away with it when it has an element of satire to it, which is easier to achieve with a sexy men calender than a sexy women calender. Our cultural heritage of beauty pagents etc (which are somewhat lacking in satire) ensures that people would tend to take a sexy women calender seriously, but the same is not true for the male equivalent.

      Yep – typical. Still women whinge so much about this sort of thing that I figure throwing them a bone now and then won’t hurt.

      Bwahah!

      I’m a big fan of Pete (number 21): its all that leather which is the deal clincher.

      Could you vote against a ninja turtle?
