Jeff is a longstanding supporter and donor to J4MB, and his input on a number of levels is hugely appreciated. He sends in leads to some wonderful stories, and this is one such. He’s nominated Carole Jones – a woman who’s never been mistaken for a ray of sunshine, I’m guessing wildly – for this month’s ‘Whiny Woman of the Month’ award. When I first read this story, I assumed it must date from yesterday, April Fool’s Day, but no – it was published today.
After you’ve read the story, be sure to dip into the comments sections. There are some gems:
Carole Jones is in pole position for the award this month. I’ll hazard a guess she’s one of the 100,000+ followers of The Everyday Sexism Project, which would be appropriate, given Laura Bates won the inaugural ‘Whiny Woman of the Month’ award. Feel free to email me firstname.lastname@example.org your nominations for ‘Whiny Woman of the Month’ or ‘Lying Woman of the Month’. So many to choose from in each category, I know, but try to pick just one.
