Kathy Gyngell on ‘The Big Questions’

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.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

  • I cannot watch iPlayer because I do not own a television set and, sadly, The Listener is no longer published.

      Thanks. Sorry, but I don’t have a solution other than to suggest you watch it on someone else’s TV or computer.

    Looking forward to the somersaults in trying to keep transgender folk out of the new safe space offices. Surely it must be good if people believe being a woman is so good they want to become one? Comical really.

    Wimbledon prize money blows a logical hole right through the ‘equal money for equal work’ pretence-argument, starkly revealing it to be the empty device and malodorous scam it is.

    I contine to be dismayed at the feeble mindedness of the authorities who have chosen to surrender to blackmail thus guaranteeing it will be used again.
