Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson, pictured left, has sparked a furious online backlash after tweeting a sexy picture of actress Gillian Anderson wearing stilettos and seamed stockings. The openly lesbian politician has been accused of ‘sexism’ and
‘objectifying women’ by an angry Twitter mob over the sultry snap of the X-Files star which has been retweeted thousands of times. Alongside the picture, she wrote: ‘Right, I’m off for a fortnight. In the mean time, here’s @GillianA just sitting round the house in
stilettos & seamed stockings. As you do.’ Some users suggested that if a man had uploaded the same image they would have been heavily criticised while others questioned if Ms Davidson’s account had been hacked.
