Kathy Gyngell was on The Big Questions again this morning, as always making a strong contribution. The link to the programme on iPlayer is here. You’ll need to be in the UK to watch it, and it will be available for 29 more days. Two sections of particular interest:
20:30 Should we have the right to decide our own gender?
41:30 Will more children be raised in poverty?
In stark contrast to Kathy Gyngell’s strong contributions were some inane witterings from Sarah Ditum, a hatchet-faced columnist with the New Statesman. Ditum does, however, raise the interesting point that gender self-determination could lead to the end of women’s sports, as men identifying as women would naturally win all the tournaments. These people would also win the same prize money at Wimbledon – and in other major tournaments – as the male players, whilst playing half the number of games.
Three years ago we posted a blog piece, We need to talk about Sarah Ditum. It related to the evidence for gendered brain differences in very young babies, a matter about which feminists are predictably in denial.
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.
