Either way it's libel on sausage-makers.

I don't know about that. A friend of mine worked in a pork pie factory for a few weeks. It put him off them for about a year. All the bits you didn't think you could eat went into them.
Keep on skirting,

We aren’t breaking any laws, simply stressing the mores for which we are not to blame. But to be realistic, we are doing what we do because we need to. We can claim we do it for our skirted brothers, but social change is generational, and what we do really is a benefit to social evolution for the generations of men that will follow us, And that’s fine with me. I do what I am personally compelled to do.

I have to say that I have never heard of this happening to anyone I know. Let's be honest - 90% of people in any public place at any given moment are wearing pants/trousers/shorts. I am only aware of this phenomenon from the media, so I have to wonder whether this really is a real problem or just something that has happened to a relatively small number of people ever, and it is being blown up as a major issue (e.g. by feminists seeking to portray women as victims and men as perverts).

I would say to anyone they might want to reflect on how many people they actually know personally who have experienced this. If it is endemic in public places, then fair enough - it's a problem that needs to be addressed. If, however, it is something we only find out about in the media, then it may be something of a rarity and not worth worrying about too much.

I'm sure it happens, but I don't think it's very common.

As for the media, the exist for one reason only, to generate ratings, and thus, advertising revenue.
