Our thanks to Jeff for this. In 2012, the year before J4MB was launched, JS-P was presented with a Harpy award by the Anti-Feminism League. The next year we published a piece titled Janet Street-Porter: the most vile woman in Britain?
In her latest piece in the Mail JS-P writes this:
When does a sexual advance cross over into harassment? Can a proposition ever be OK if it is in the workplace? The answer is very simple – harassment happens when the person seeking gratification is in a more powerful position than their victim.
This begs the question, of course, by what we mean by ‘more powerful’. Women are strongly driven by hypergamy, and one of its clearest manifestations is a willingness to have sex with high-status men, in the hope of future influence, professional advancement, or a relationship. Women trade their sexual power in exchange for men’s power, in whatever form that appears. Then JS-P writes what I can only assume to be an outright lie:
At the start of my television career, I remember sitting at dinner with a top agent, my husband at the other end of the table, when the guy leant across and offered me a reduction in his commission and plenty of work if I would give him the occasional blow job.
Jeff asks, ‘Was the man blind?’
