How absurd. What’s wrong with women these days? I wouldn’t fancy going to the theatre to see a man play Jane Austen, Queen Elizabeth I, Margaret Thatcher, Florence Nightingale, Boadicea, Joan of Arc, Eva Peron, or Mother Theresa… who would? I propose Emma Thompson for your next ‘Whiny Woman of the Month’.

Well, that’s Emma Thompson in the frame for the award next month, along with Jo Swinson MP, who’s been proposed by a number of supporters. She’s whiny even by the soul-crushingly dismal standards of Lib Dem MPs. There are, of course, many female Labour MPs who might be in contention this year, obvious candidates being Harriet Harman, Yvette Balls (née Cooper), the teeth-gratingly whiny Eagle sisters…

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.
