I assume transwomen are welcome

Telegraph article in praise of women-only tours: She led me into the darkness of her hut, and lifted her faded black T-shirt, gleefully. Her breasts, marked by motherhood, hung deflated against her chest, but that wasn’t what she had wanted to show me. She grinned and jiggled her hips, showing off the rows of multicoloured […]

Foolishness begets more foolishness

Posted on

After feminist professor Selina Todd was cancelled by a feminist conference because of trans activists’ threats (Todd isn’t totally on-board with the idea that a bloke in a dress is a woman if he says he is), the Guardian’s Suzanne Moore fights back to declare that sex is real. However, one can’t help feel that […]

I was a Charlie’s Angel myself

Posted on

One of the Telegraph’s many feminists (not even from the Wimmin’s section this time) is angry that women – feminists even! – are still keen on That 70s Bikini Show: Why do feminists still love Charlie’s Angels? The first complaint is that the three angels were forced to do the bidding of a faceless, powerful […]

Apparently naughty fun has an evolutionary ulterior motive. Who knew?

Judith Woods continues her downhill slide, bemoaning the fact that it’s been discovered that the clitoris plays a role in reproduction: Apparently the clitoris (incidentally the word is derived from kleitoris, originally Greek for door-keeper) has an important reproductive function too. When it is stimulated (sorry, getting a bit graphic, Lady Violet) it triggers internal […]

Fighting what you are

Posted on

I’ve noticed how progressive feminists who want to break down the ‘gender divide’ and fight gender stereotypes often embody, when you closely at them, certain traditional feminine stereotypes. A recent example happened with Flora Gill, daughter of AA Gill and Amber Rudd, who made the news recently when she complained about a man who took […]

“The Week in Patriarchy”

Posted on

Did you know that the Guardian has a section called ‘The Week in Patriarchy‘. Even by Guardian standards this is extremely comical. One can only presume that they don’t read satirical sites like The Onion or the Daily Mash. Here are some of the – shall we say ‘predictable’? – headlines: Women swear sometimes – let’s get […]

Hector article at the Conservative Woman

Posted on

I have a new article up at the Conservative Woman, entitled “The Telegraph Wimmin’s section – a fact-free zone”. It’s a shortened version of some of the blog posts I have recently been writing about the Women’s section at The Telegraph, namely these ones: The Telegraph’s Women’s section is an odious cesspit Claire Cohen: Ordinary […]

Welcome to the hut

Posted on

I’ve been saying for a while now (especially on my Twitter page)  that white feminists are quite mistaken if they think that they’re on the top of the victimhood tree. Once the ‘victims’ are in charge, white women will quickly find they’re classed as oppressors, second only to white men in culpability. This is already […]

The feminist bubble

Posted on

So the writer and critic of feminism Peter Lloyd posted a Tweet in which he made reference to this story where twenty women invaded a men-only pool in Hampstead dressed as men. They were protesting about the proposed legislation that would allow anyone to go to a gender-segregated pool if they merely ‘identified’ as that […]
