Roxane Gay is a bisexual feminist with, one strongly suspects, Narcissistic Personality Disorder – a disorder many feminists have, it’s the rest of us who suffer the consequences. She claims to have been gang raped as a 12-year old, and at one point weighed over 40 stone. I say ‘claims to have been gang raped’ because I simply don’t believe feminists when they claim to have been the victims of sexual assaults by men, unless a man has been convicted (and many such convictions are unsafe, as we know).
I despair of otherwise right-of-centre publications such as The Spectator featuring articles by feminists, when left-of-centre publications such as New Statesman would never publish articles by anti-feminists, or be sympathetic towards anti-feminist narratives. There’s an insightful review by the dreadful Julie Burchill of Roxane Gay’s book Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body in the current edition of The Spectator. Burchill’s poking of Laurie Penny in the eye is just one of a number of enjoyable elements.
