Daisy, Daisy / Give me your answer, do.

Daisy Buchanan (no relation) is a Guardian columnist and features writer, with whom I once had a discussion on London Live TV. More on that, and a wonderful article critiquing her views on women-only railway carriages, shortly.

We’re grateful to Captain Nemo for posting some of our videos on his channel, reaching a large audience. The numbers after the following pieces (the titles are his) are the latest number of viewings. The first features the aforementioned discussion with Ms Buchanan:

Three biased feminists vs one men’s and boys’ rights activist (84,597) (London Live TV)

Feminist lies shattered by men’s rights activist (237,814) (Notts TV)

Privileged feminists STUNNED by empirical evidence (190,512) (London Live TV)

Feminist confusion vs men’s rights activist’s logic (87,151) (London Live TV)

Men’s rights activist vs feminist delusions (52,069) (ITV This Morning)

The final link relates to the programme during which Caroline Criado-Perez spouted the lie which led to her third Lying Feminist of the Month award. Links to the full 20-minute-long footage – an older woman was shoe-horned into the discussion for the second half, in an effort to save CC-P from making an even bigger fool of herself – and her award, are available here.

This brings us to an excellent article by Rod Little in the latest edition of The Spectator, inspired by an article Ms Buchanan wrote for the Guardian. Enjoy.

  1. Some decades ago I saw a programme that looked at women dealing with unwelcome attention from males on public transport. The women were all pupils at an assertiveness class and all were middle aged, with that strange pasty, flaky complexion that suggests post-menopausal osteoporosis and brittle hair, with heavy and crudely applied make up. The woman ‘facilitating’ the class advised her pupils to deter their unwanted suitors by humiliating them in front of others. The best way to do this, she said, was pointedly to lift the errant hand from their thighs (unwanted hands on thighs was a common problem) and say loudly “take your hand off my leg you dir-ty little man”. ‘Dirty’ was to be spat out in two distinct syllables to emphasise his depravity. The programme ended with credits rolling over footage of one particularly unpervable old hag acting out the scene repeatedly. “Take your hand off my thigh you dir-ty little man”, she said, while miming removing, with pinched finger and thumb, an unwanted hand from her untouchable thigh, her wild eyed ecstatic grin growing more abandoned with each reiteration.

    This problem of males bothering unattractive women on public transport has been with us for a long time.
