You beat me to it! He fit a lot in there.

Michelleoftheresistance Sat 27-Jun-20 18:31:45

Well said Jonathon.

My god that’s the best video about what’s currently happening that I’ve ever seen. 😮

Tianalia Sat 27-Jun-20 18:36:37

Yep that pretty much sums much of this up.

Beamur Sat 27-Jun-20 18:45:11

Spot on.
He is very perceptive.

hellotoday27 Sat 27-Jun-20 18:47:34

I love that video, I properly laughed out loud at some of that. Spot on.

Well she's been replaced by Kate Green.
Kate is my MP. She says TWAW and in sports women should just work harder. She also signed the stupid Fox and Owl letter.

Sorry for the derail.

He speaks truth. Satire without fear or favour.

bellinisurge Sat 27-Jun-20 18:56:17

Correct. And funny.

I always think women who say this to other women about sport have either
- never played any sport to any standard,
- have no female loved one who play sport,
- are unleashing revenge for the fact that they were never picked first in games,
- have no idea how women have had a bloody hard struggle to get any kind of representation/recognition/sponsorship/publicity in most mainstream sport, and are still trying to do so,
- have no knowledge of rudimentary biology and therefore are too thick for public office
- simply do not have any imagination or empathy for girls and women for whom sport may be their only outlet/way of progress in life.

(Do please put me right if you know different about Kate Green. I frankly cannot be bothered to look her up.)

I try not to think that , op but it's hard not to. Someone over on the thread started by Glinner couldn't imagine a situation where a 13 year old girl might be taking a shower next to an intact transwomen. Suspect they have never been in a gym or public swimming pool.

Redshoeblueshoe Sat 27-Jun-20 19:19:17

OP I think you have hit the nail on the head wine

HoneysuckIejasmine Sat 27-Jun-20 19:21:11

I laughed a lot at that video. Nailed it.

Whatsnewpussyhat Sat 27-Jun-20 19:29:14

Love it. grin

ZaraCarmichaelshighheels Sat 27-Jun-20 19:31:20

He nails it every single time and so funny.

NeurotrashWarrior Sat 27-Jun-20 19:45:34

Brilliant video.

Fuck re Kate Green.

ScrimpshawTheSecond Sat 27-Jun-20 19:50:49

in sports women should just work harder.

A male friend of mine who had been banging on about TWAW, when asked about sex segregation said he thought it was 'old fashioned' and that as he was short he was disadvantaged, all women and men should just play sports together.

It's not really a considered position, put it that way.

CaraDune Sat 27-Jun-20 19:55:29

OliveKitteridge - spot on, all of it.

I feel gutted for the upcoming generation of sportswomen. We've had about 5 years where things looked good - women's professional football getting going, getting regular TV time, women's Six Nations rugby attracting good crowds and TV time, with the prospect of a professional league at club level. All sorts of women's sports getting more air time.

And now it's all about to be shat on from a great height.

cakeandcustard Sat 27-Jun-20 20:03:00

He conflates left wing with woke but apart from that he's spot on.

On the women in sport front this came crashing down on me when watching Ninja Warrior (of all things) on a Saturday night with my daughter when she said but all the winners are boys. She got increasingly angry that no girls could finish the course ... How do you explain to a six year old the biological reality of her sex?

Cantteach Sat 27-Jun-20 20:05:58

redshoe Kate Green is my MP too. I think a lot of people around her are GC, so (wrongly) she may have just been saying the 'right' thing at the time. I think there is hope for her.

Redshoeblueshoe Sat 27-Jun-20 20:45:47

I hope so, Cantteach. And as we're neighbours have this wine grin

ListeningQuietly Sat 27-Jun-20 20:50:45

That Jonathon Pie is FAB

if Kate Green is indeed in the TWAW camp (I note she does not have a daughter which I've found to be a key marker)
she needs some reminding

BUT
lets giver her a chance.
Keir has a line and a reliable shadow EdSec might just make a difference

Michelleoftheresistance Sat 27-Jun-20 21:18:28

He is pretty good at putting things together and spotting the big patterns. He's been bitterly furious for a long time that he's a Labour voter who would love a socialist government and there is no one he can vote for. There's many in his position.

I have happy memories of him doing an imitation of a Labour Party conference safe space where everyone goes to chant "no one say anything I don't agree with! no one say anything I don't agree with!"

IndecentFeminist Sat 27-Jun-20 21:19:30

I love him. Saw him live a few years ago
