Our thanks to John Kimble at HEqual for this:
It’s been a while since I’ve seen any misandry from BBC Three, though I guess no one notices really these days seeing as they went off-air and are online only (which no one watches).
Anyway, I think they’ve outdone their previous efforts this time with an astonishing video about “Things You’ll Know If You’re A Woman On The Internet” – here (4:13).
The misandry and stupidity throughout this entire thing is incredible.
We’ve got the BBC attempting to legitimise a sexist term which simply dismisses any explanation to an issue or any view held by a man simply becasue of his gender. Note it’s not merely the guests using this misandrist term, but the section is headed using that term, meaning the BBC is not merely using it but making it into an actual topic of discussion as if it’s an acceptable term and a legitimate concept.
They say how the best thing about the internet is that it allows you to meet other women. Not people, but women. Before that there’s a segment on trolling/abuse, and most abuse of women of course comes from other women, so they obviously haven’t thought this through.
The best part is perhaps right near the end, when the obese one says: “Say you don’t know something, they can educate you on their narrative and what they’ve been through”. So one minute they don’t want things explaining via the internet, and then the very next they do? Amazing cognitive dissonance.
Note that it’s possible for readers to upvote or downvote the video, the score is already terrible of course, though perhaps still to completely reflective of how messed up the piece is.
If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
