  • Sera

    Seriously, Vancitybuzz, how many more times are you going to haul out the gratuitous pic of the naked painted women?? And 2 days after the latest report of a woman being attacked at UBC? How about posting pics that show respect to women instead of puerile “look, it’s boobies!” pics that make women out to be nothing but tits to be ogled by creepy guys who make it all out to be a joke? I would have thought you’d be a bit more sensitive than this, especially now. Then again, you do seem to find every possible excuse to post photos of naked women. I’m shaking my head in disbelief and dismay.

  • disqus

    wow no wonder people in vancouver are broke, it’s all about drinking that you people think about. get some freaking jobs and stop complaining about how Vancouver is so expensive to live in.
