In 2013 I wrote a piece predicting that there would one day be a feminist campaign for men to wear blinkers (‘blinders’ in the US) as used on some horses during racing. It seems I was prescient.
Our thanks to Mike P for this. The piece starts:
A man is set to stand trial after he was accused of propositioning a woman by winking at her in a pub.
Grezegorz Kwiecien is accused of repeatedly winking at the woman at Dexy’s Bar in Dundee, despite her continuously rebuking his advances.
Had Grezegorz Kwiecien (fine Scottish name) been wearing blinkers, the woman might have suffered less emotional trauma. Years ago, such newspaper stories would only have been published on April Fools’ Day.
If everyone who read this gave us £10.00 – or even better, £10.00 or more, monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
