I just watched part of a documentary where the presenter was traipsing around the African bush barefoot. Now historically, she isn't the only one to have done this - there have been several presenters in the past that have portrayed the same image. But I have to ask the question; What kind of half-baked twat walks through the bush barefoot? What kind of message does this portray to those with little knowledge of the hidden dangers of the bush? What is even more mind-boggling is the fact that the presenter in question here was bitten and nearly died from a carpet viper bite when she was a child, so she should know full well the danger involved, and should be sending a more responsible message. I realise that those indigenous to many countries have never bothered with footwear, but why tempt fate if you don't have to? Am I alone in believing that the message this sends to viewers is irresponsible, or am I over-reacting? I don't think anyone is going to change my mind on the issue, but that's not the point of this post. I am simply interested in the opinions of others on this topic.
