A short and irritating interview from The Big Issue.
“My daughter Scarlett is a feminist who wrote the book Feminists Don’t Wear Pink (And Other Lies). She interviewed all the kids in our neighborhood under 20. When she asked: Are you feminists all of them put their hands up.
“I think we may be heading for a generation to whom it’s much more natural to think about these issues. I am quite hopeful that the battle for equal rights is going to be fought more enthusiastically by both sides. And that men are going to listen a lot more.”
Richard Curtis’ neighbourhood appears to be Notting Hill… Which, while it’s a demographically diverse area, I still happen to wonder whether the kids in his direct vicinity are predominantly middle class children belonging to university-indoctrinated radically left wing parents. Speculations notwithstanding, I think it’s fair to say that feminists have raised such a cacophony in recent years – as well as fully encroaching on the education system that it will be much more natural for younger generations to consider feminism and equal rights. I happen to hope that these generations will have the scepticism and compassion to see through feminism and will, through alternative media sources, become aware of where the real sex equality issues lie. If indeed men do listen more, I sincerely hope it will be to honest commentators, to each other and with a critical and non-gynocentric perspective.
Between us, our eldest boy had a lesson on “diversity” in school today wherein their teacher explained that Emily Davison martyred herself under a horse “and then the politicians thought about it and gave women the vote”. Were it not for this being his second day in a new school, I’d be straight on the phone tomorrow – but instead I have instructed our boy to spread the truth to his new friends.
