The Toronto Sun is discriminating against men by dropping the Sunshine boy feature.
It is an outrage!|
Are Toronto area men so ugly as to be denied equal treatment?
Sunshine Girl refers to pinup girls featured in most of the daily newspapers of the Sun chain in Canada.
The feature started when the Toronto Sun, which was launched in 1971, and was adapted from British tabloids with similar featured women. The SUNshine girls have become an iconic part of Canadian newspaper history. Typically featured on page 3 of the Sun in the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s, the Sunshine Girl is now usually found on the back page of the sports section. The photos usually featured a clothed or swimsuited female model, actress, or athlete, as well as amateur models, and were generally tastefully done. Famous former SUNshine girls include: Amanda Coetzer (tennis star), Ann Rohmer (of Breakfast Television), Trish Stratus (WWE Diva), Stacy Keibler (WWE Diva and Dancing with the Stars finalist).
At least twice a year, the Sun Group produces and sells a calendar featuring a selection of Sunshine Girls. Typically, the Girls who are selected for the calendar are chosen by the public online and by a mail-in vote.
