Pathetic – and utterly predictable. That’s what you get with an Education Secretary (Nicky Morgan) who is also the Minister for Women and Equalities. Ideological brainwashing of teenagers, prompted by an online petition by feminist grievance collectors.
From the article:
The (Department of Education) source said: “Female thinkers have played a key role in shaping political theory not just in the UK but across the world, it’s obviously right that students should have an opportunity to study their work. Consultation responses clearly backed this change.”
The source said under the previous syllabus feminism had not been a compulsory subject, but had been popular among students alongside other political movements such as environmentalism. In changing the curriculum, however, the Government overlooked the importance of feminism as a stand-alone subject. Under the new proposals, students will be required [my emphasis] to study the women’s rights movement.
So who exactly is the teenager who has prompted the Department of Education into a U-turn, June Eric-Udoye? Six months ago we published a piece about her – following a blog piece in which she’d criticised us for awarding ‘Lying Feminist of the Month’ awards, to Laura Bates among others. Lying is a perfectly honorable tactic in the eyes of feminists, as we see decade after decade.
Ms Eric-Udoye was 16 at the time. For all I know, she still is. She’s a blogger for New Statesman, Huffington Post, and the Guardian. Two excerpts from her output should tell you all you need to know about this brainwashed teenager. Her Cosmopolian profile:
I’m June, 16 year old teenage feminist blogger and obsessed with smashing patriarchy. Often found with my nose in a book, talking about vaginas or dancing to Beyonce. Oh, and I’m addicted to Coca-Cola.
Her mistresspieces for the Huffington Post include Feminism: Believing in the Power of Vaginas Is Not Something to be Ashamed Of. An extract, displaying her genius in full flow:
I’m a feminist. I’m a very, very proud feminist (this is when you can start judging me). And why shouldn’t I be? Fannies are WAY better. I mean, come on?! We can bring new life into the world and still bounce back into shape. The fact that even men came out of a vagina is saying something about how powerful vaginas actually are. The power of the vagina is why we continue to be oppressed and dominated every day.
