I do not understand how so many women still can’t see what’s happening here...

To be fair there is not one positive response. They really have had their arses handed to them.

They have been completely ratio’d but not one response from them let alone an apology

"Hi, we apologise sincerely for any offense caused by the choice of wording which was absolutely not our intention. Thank you for raising this so rapidly with us and sharing your views. Bethany"

Well, so much for a philosophy organisation that gets its worms in a muddle grin

Apology but no rewording? More like a "sorry you feel offended" than a "sorry we fucked up". FFS! Will their next tweet be asking folk to discuss best non-White philosophers....or non-straight? Fucking eejits.

You can almost hear Bethany going “you wrote what?!

Tweet still up though

That thread is gold!

"Do you mean philosophers with front bottoms?"

(And the woman - sorry, non male - who taught me ethics back in the mists of prehistory gets a mention. Also loving that famous non-non-male philosopher JS Mill, well known for his defence of the political rights of non-males.)
