Laura Bates whines about… oh, I don’t know, something to do with women and sport, I think… wah, wah, wah, wah, wah!!!

Out thanks to a number of people who alerted us to this story:

We were undecided about whether to do a post on it, but our favourite professional whine merchant Laura Bates is quoted in the piece (below) so we just had to do a post:

Laura Bates, founder of the Everyday Sexism project, insisted Miss Grant was wrong to focus on the looks of sportswomen and suggest the purpose of sport is to be ‘girlie and feminine’.

“We shouldn’t say women should only do sports while they look radiant and beautiful. It’s actually discouraging for a minister to say this. It suggests the problem is coming from the young women themselves, when I think a big problem is societal response.”

‘It suggests the problem is coming from the young women themselves…’. Young women not playing as much sport as young men can NOT be attributed to the choices freely made, or not made, by young women. Women must never be held accountable for the consequences of their actions and inactions. No siree…

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.
