Last Thursday I was in a discussion on BBC Radio Tees with Roweena Russell, a particularly grim feminist – organizer of the North East Feminist Gathering, which sounds like fun – about a Conservative Club in Great Ayton, Yorkshire, which bars women from entering the club. It’s perhaps worth noting that Conservative Clubs are not under the control of the Conservative party, a point presumably lost on the whiny woman in Great Ayton who complained about the club.
I was informed by Donna, the lovely lady producer of The Mike Parr Show, that ladies are permitted entry to the club on New Year’s Eve if accompanied by their (male) partners, and women are allowed to work there as barmaids, and in other lines of work. Even that isn’t enough for feminists, amazingly. It’s almost as if they want to be permanently unhappy…
I’ve debated with plenty of feminists on radio and elsewhere, and I can say Ms Russell – I’m guessing wildly she isn’t married, and doesn’t call herself ‘Miss’ – is something special. We’ve been debating at the J4MB international HQ in Bedford, to whom we might award this month’s ‘Lying Feminist of the Month’ award. So many contenders, as always. In the Radio Tees discussion Ms Russell trotted out the lie that two women a week are killed in the UK by partners or ex-partners – the same lie that earned Special Snowflake her first ‘Lying Feminist of the Month’ award – so Ms Russell has nominated herself for the award. I politely emailed her to inform her of the fact, and her response was distinctly unladylike, I felt.
