If anyone is aware of Andrew Lawrence and his recent facebook post / Nigel Farage's support for him, they might be interested in the above link to a response from Ava Vidal.

Thanks for this. You know when something is described as a 'witch hunt' that misogyny is involved!

The comments are hilarious. Lots of white men telling a woman of colour that she faces no oppression structural or otherwise, but that she us being harmed more than things put in place by token policies put in place to combat structural oppression.

Yes, yes, I know. Never read the comments.

Sorry about the ridiculousness of my post. I probably wasn't concentrating... Hope what I meant still comes through. Oops!
