Will Tarboard still be around in 50 years time? If it is, will such enthusiastic comments about the sexuality of our female authors still be permitted? Or will they be ruthlessly supressed by Ian's sucessor in the name of sexual equality? Will someone then leap up to defend Peter H and argue that in the context of the early 21st C such remarks were not considered offensive and they should not be removed because they offer a valuable insight to the cultural attitudes of those times.
Do we treat male authors differently? If someone posted that AR is exhibiting some fairly 'raw' sexuality in a photo would we not think it a bit odd?
