Do you not think they've got a point? I don't know about Liberal Conspiracy in general, but there was nothing misogynistic about that particular article.

There is a point in there.

Obviously, they have missed the point of the campaign, but there is also the issue of whether it is right to spend our energies putting our own houses in order, whilst at the same time we are turning blind eyes to the fact that we are contributing to other peoples'.

There's a lot of reactionary media twattery to the Let Girls Be Girls campaign. Apparently, it's the parents job to protect their children from sexualised culture, because as we all know parents are capable of keeping children hermetically sealed from society until they transform into fully functioning adults.

Oh it's the usual mysogynistic twattery which assumes that mummies are too thick to care about anything other than issues which directly affect children.

It's just old fashioned sexism by someone who obviously hasn't bothered to take the time to read much of Mumsnet, particularly the feminist section, before she decided to write an article about it. hmm
