Letter: Behaving badly

Sir: No, Suzanne Moore, it is not "fine for men to be shameless shaggers and hustlers" ("So why is it all right for men to grow old disgracefully?", 1 October). Instead of championing vulgarity in women you should consider chastising the braying coarseness of some men, stirred on by the money- hungry media.

Dignity and wisdom are generally regarded as admirable and desirable. At present however, the media seem to be able to call the shots on what is worthwhile behaviour. Pleas for the further coarsening of women will not make them, or our society, any happier.
