Congratulations on the editorial comment “We Must Resist the Sexual Objectification of Men Too” (February 20).

This ad has bothered me since I first heard it on Cape Talk some time ago. As I felt it undermined the message of several Cape Talk shows, I tried without success to bring it to management’s attention. 

So it’s indeed a pleasant surprise to find what I might previously have expect in Mail & Guardian or City Press in Business Day. And it’s not often that Eusebius McKaiser can’t add anything to a discussion point like this. 

The world is changing quickly, and issues of justice and prejudice are now increasingly at the forefront of even commercial business decisions, so I applaud and encourage your newspaper to continue and develop this aspect of your news offering.
