It still saddens me that The Times give so many column inches to Caitlin Moran, 40, a particularly narcissistic feminist. Her Twitter profile starts with this:
Writing the fuck out of shit since 1992.
In How To Be A Woman Ms Moran described the lack of emotion she’d felt over having had an abortion – the pregnancy had resulted from the failure of she and her partner to employ contraception whilst on holiday – and then mentioned the fact that the aborted foetus was male. What earthly reason could there have been for mentioning the sex of the foetus?
She wins this month’s Gormless Feminist of the Month award for an utterance of just 12 seconds’ duration at an event run by the Women’s Equality Party. Her certificate is here.
