Another solid piece from Kathy Gyngell. I was particularly pleased to see her mention of an Oxford professor who would have won a Whiny Feminist of the Month award the other day, if I’d had some time free. Kathy writes:
Ursula Martin, a Professor of Computer Science at Oxford University, used her platform last week at the Hay Festival to take out one unsuspecting young computer scientist for his unforgivable category error, on which she based her claim of ‘staggering’ sexism’ in the computer science industry. She ‘bawled’ him out, she said, for the crime of presenting his vision of ‘enhanced humanity’ in the male form.
