Yup. Dawson doing the poor me bit about not being able to use the toilets in Cineworld. Not sure if HR is going to go for it or not.

Can't read the article- could you paste it here? Thanks

I just went and did a bit of digging to find Juno Dawson's comments, and was distracted by the fact that they are in response to Caitlin Moran retweeting the article.

Is this some sort of cautious (cowardly) show of support for JKR from the famously fearless feminist?? (who is obviously completely fucking terrified of being turned on by the chaps and losing woke points from the cool kids)

I can't read the article though...

The exchange between Hadley Freeman and Hugo is fab. Comparing his penis superpowers with her vagina shield.

Look at the things people will get banned for on Parler, though.

All things that twitter absolutely fails to tackle. How bizarre.

I did notice Juno Dawson described CM as a friend. Possibly one reason she wouldn't want to get involved?
