Would you go to a rape crisis centre and advertise for such a competition? What about a domestic violence women's shelter? Perhaps a grief support group for parents who've lost children and partners? its obviously appropriate to go and solicit models for a men's dirty magazine there isn't it? That would be totally insensitive, but when it comes to asylum seekers, who have gone through horrors we couldn't even imagine, that's totally fine. The mere suggestion of it, is appalling.
The thing is, they don't go to a rape crisis centre. It's just a shout out into the mass media or wherever the OP found this info. I doubt actual refugees will even know of this. This is obviously a publicity grab. Which the OP is now only adding weight to.
They say a lot of women in porn/prostitution have been victims of abuse as children? Anecdotal, but I heard something like that.
Personally, I am against the whole industry - porn/smutty mags etc.
A lot of people on EB admit they enjoy porn, judging by recent thread, when porn industry is implicated in human trafficking.
The whole thing is just aimed at one and only objective - to ruffle the feathers of Australian middle class, get a bit of printed word here and there.....clearly, Zoo scouts are not arriving at detention centres?!
I think there are better things to be outraged about. This is a non issue.
