My thanks to all the people who took the trouble to email me in recent days to inform me of a forthcoming piece to be broadcast on BBC3, presented by Alys Harte, a young lady from Donegal. It was broadcast earlier this evening, and it was titled The Rise of Female Violence.
Two or three were optimistic that the BBC might hold women accountable for something, for the first time in its history. Some chance. I’m more likely to become pregnant, and give birth to a lamb later named Felicity Fluffy-Fleece, than that will ever happen. To my mind, the only question was how the programme would show women to be unaccountable for committing violence.
Before you watch the programme, I urge you to watch Men’s Rights Versus Feminism Explained (using magnets) – a video (4:27) about moral agency by Alison Tieman, one of our favourite Honey Badgers, a charming woman who I had the pleasure of meeting (along with her husband) at the 2014 International Conference on Men’s Issues, in Detroit. I was constantly reminded of her video throughout the BBC3 programme, available on iPlayer for the next 29 days – here.
I don’t have the time to pen a detailed critique of the programme, sadly. But let me give you a few reflections, some of which we’d anticipate from Alison Tieman’s critique of gender-specific moral agency (or the lack of it, in the case of women):
- Throughout the programme, violent women were referred to as ‘girls’. Some of these ‘girls’ appeared to be over 30.
- A young alcoholic woman from Newcastle took up much of the programme. She had ‘threatened’ Caroline Criado-Perez (three-times winner of our ‘Lying Feminist of the Month’ awards, it must be days since I last mentioned that) on Twitter – whilst so drunk, she later had no recollection of the matter – and was charged. CC-P said the woman had ‘internalised misogyny’. Classic. No woman must ever be held accountable for her actions or inactions, which seems to be the prevailing philosophy of the criminal justice system towards women. The young woman from Newcastle was ‘lucky’ to be spared a prison sentence – her ‘luck’ is shared by women in general – and given ‘a last chance’ by a magistrate at the end of the programme. The first of many last chances, we can be sure.
- (unlike men) Women are not accountable for the violence they commit when under the influence of alcohol.
- (unlike men) Women are not accountable for the violence they commit if their levels of testosterone – bad hormone!!! – are increased by alcohol, or otherwise. The increase is larger if they’re taking contraceptive pills.
- (unlike men) Women are not accountable for the violence they commit if they’ve had a ‘difficult childhood’.
- (unlike men) Women are not accountable for the violence they commit if they have mental health issues.
- (unlike men) Women are not accountable for their violence they commit if they’ve been the victims of violence (particularly at the hands of men, of course)
All in all, as balanced a programme on gender matters as we’d expect from the licence fee-funded feminist parasites at the BBC.
