British Sexual Harassment PSA Tells Men To Stop Being Gross

I wish America would show stuff like this on television: the Welsh government in the U.K. has released a PSA about sexual harassment.

Raunchy photographer Terry Richardson doesn’t hide from his sexuality—it’s blatantly there all over his unclothed models, genital Photoshopped madness, and general debauchery that’s conveyed through his photos and blog. Up until now, no one’s questioned his methods, and everyone’s generally thought he’s a cool—if not slightly bizarre/edgy—guy. Now, two models have gone public with some…

Will A “Model Code of Conduct” Diminish Sexual Harassment And Injuries?

As glamorous as modeling may seem, it’s also chock-full of sexual harassment and other shady business.
