It is pleasingly snarky.

brilliant!! utterly ace.

Great point about the We Believe You and the Miscarriage Campaign. And I totally agree about the word FeMEnism being totally pretentious and plain <boak>.

Good article.

Depressing though. I sometimes wish I believed that there was no need for feminism anymore, that it wasn't relevant. It must be pretty good being an ostrich when you have two daughters....

Then again, I think I'll stick with trying to make the world a better place for them.

We have to, haven't we? The alternative is too awful.

I did that survey, but even the way the questions were asked you could see what angle they were going for. was a very leading survey, not particularly neutral at all. Was not too impressed with it

All part of the divide and conquer really....

Great. Wonder if Louise Pennington's a Mumsnetter? She even used disingenuous.

smile Stewie.

On reflection, you know, I think feMEnism is quite a useful term - I'm going to use it in a derogatory way to talk about the worst extremes of choice feminism. It brings out the solipsistic and selfish nature of it quite well. It's not something anyone will feel good about signing up to.

Fab, well done SGM.

It was extremely good to read an article that cut right to the truth about that survey and feminism, instead of the shit that was in the papers about it.

SamuraiCindy Thu 25-Oct-12 20:35:33

You look great!!

Pepsi and Shirley used to sing with Wham! Shirley is married to Martin Kemp from Spandau Ballet I believe....

MmeLindor Thu 25-Oct-12 21:33:30

lol at disingenuous - I noticed that too.

Did you all have one really cool teacher when you were at school, who you'd sometimes see at the weekends wearing Doc Martens with a denim skirt? The one that all the girls wanted to be like cause she was waaaaaaaaay cooler than Miss Mckinnon with her Princess Di blouse and her flicky hair?

That is Stewie.

In this video Notice how they don't get credited.....

i apologise for posting Club Tropicana in FWR. It all kinds of wrong - especially George Michael in budgie smugglers.... blush

They had their own band briefly as well. I can't say I'm surprised it never troubled your playlist though, SGM!
