We’ve had strong positive feedback to our YouTube clip of the Irish radio show in which Roz Hardie’s arguments and narratives were destroyed by Niall Boylan. A donor has called to ask about her claim, in the course of the programme, that I’d written in one of my books that women photosynthesise, i.e. put on mass in the same way as plants.
Almost three years ago my book Feminism: the ugly truth was published, and it’s available only in ebook editions. They can be read not only on e-readers such as Kindle, but also on PCs, tablets etc. with excellent free-to-download software. For some reason feminists have been upset by the book’s cover design. I have no idea why…
When Ms Hardie stated that I’d written that women photosynthesise, I assume she was trying to imply to the presenter and the listeners that I have bats in the belfry. Niall Boylan groaned softly and moved on, perhaps assuming (correctly) that if I had written such a thing, it would have been in a humorous context. Is Roz Hardie so humourless that she took my comments on women photosynthesising seriously?
To celebrate her woeful performance on the programme – which has led to nominations for both our ‘Whiny Feminist of the Month’ and ‘Gormless Feminist of the Month’ awards – I’ve prepared a PDF of three short successive chapters from Feminism: the ugly truth. Photosynthesis is covered in the first chapter, ‘Why are fat women fat?’
