Polly Courtney Take A Turn on The Pole

We have to admit that we are starting to develop something of a crush on Polly Courtney. We haven’t read any of her book yet—there are five chapters available on her website—but we enjoyed her email lamenting Helen Green’s £800,000 win against Deutsche Bank. She's not hard on the eyes. She's smart—engineering at Cambridge and at least a couple of years at Merrill Lynch. And now the Daily Mail reports that our girl enjoys a little, uhm, pole dancing every now and then. She denies doing it professionally, of course. But she certainly seems to have the whole gravity defying, inverted thigh lock thing down.
So that might explain why we were annoyed by the tone and headline of the Daily Mail's article. Oh my, she complained of sexism and she's a bit of a party gal! Is this supposed to be hypocrisy? Is the theory that you can't really be bothered by sexism at work if you've swung yourself around a stripper pole a couple of times? We call bullshit on that line of reasoning.
