Daily Telegraph prints article telling women to STFU about DV because it's attention-seeking

There's a comment underneath pointing out that when Nigella Lawson is the victim of DV, everyone is shocked and outraged on her behalf, but when this opera singer is, (working class, outsider) she's called an attention seeker.

I'm not sure - I thought it might also be to do with the fact that no-one can deny Nigella was attacked by Saatchi because he did it in public. It's basically sharia standards - unless it's witnessed by at least 4 men, we can dismiss the claim and say it's just women being hysterical attention seekers.

CIF is amazing isn't it? It doesn't fit with the stereotype of a guardian reader.

There was an article recently about what it's like to go through menopause and manage the symptoms while holding down a stressful job. Cue the usual idiots ranting....How on earth do men get to have an opinion on what it's like to go through the menopause confused? Maybe the clue's in the name grin

Yeah, the age gap comment was part of the general hatefulness of it.
