Robert Franklin game a wonderful talk in Detroit. I could listen to someone with his Deep South accent talk for an hour about different varieties of rhubarb, but the content of his speech – it’s here with a full transcript – was excellent.
I’ve just enjoyed reading a new piece written by Robert, just published by AVfM, about the ‘Extreme Heat Rule’ which is available only to female tennis players – you know, the ones who play far fewer games than the male players – at the US Open Tennis Championships, currently being held in New York. As with a number of other major tennis championships – including Wimbledon – the women get the same prize money. And now they’re not expected to play when it’s… er… hot. Seriously, you have to ask yourself:
Are normal women – feminists are excluded, by definition – not mortified by this kind of thing?
