  1. Oh really, I shouldn’t laugh. At least, not until I’ve changed into my leak-proof underwear.

    As a grandee of the old guard poor Greer must hitherto have assumed that she almost ‘owned’ feminism. I wonder how she is enjoying the taste of this medicine? Well, when I say that I ‘wonder’, what I mean is that I couldn’t really give a shih tzu, I just hope in my innately violent masculine way that she’s choking on it. How lovely it is to see these haters devouring themselves.

  2. Greer has “demonstrated misogynistic views towards trans women, including continually misgendering trans women and denying the existence of transphobic altogether”

    This sort of lunacy is rife in totalitarian societies. Go to bed a revered leading thinker and wake up to find that some ambitious opportunist, in this case an intellectually inadequate and apparently mentally unstable girl, has effectively criminalised one’s thoughts and utterances, and simply for a few minutes’ notoriety and a step up the ladder. It’s a form of false rape allegation.

    Miss Greer is learning what all long spent revolutionary forces learn – the revolution shows no mercy to those it no longer esteems or favours. Don’t be surprised to read that she’s experienced a Damascene moment and defected to the MRM.

  3. Oh, this is so funny. It’s worth going to the Change.Org petition page for a laugh too. Some of the comments are hilarious: “Inviting Greer infers tacit acceptance of verbal and emotional violence against vulnerable women. We must better protect all women”. Priceless.
