Radio Times – the feminist campaigning continues…

There seems to be no end of promotion for feminist perspectives in the Radio Times. Often this takes a subtle form. Anyone familiar with militant feminism will be aware of how anti–family, anti-marriage an ideology it is. What better way to promote this agenda than lauding women who choose to remain unmarried and childless? This week’s ‘Letter of the Week’ is again penned by a woman, who wins a ‘Pure Contour 100Di’, whatever that is. Maybe it’s a device to shed cellulite. The magazine’s ‘Letter of the Week’ is generally reserved for whining feminists as followers of this blog will know.

The letter refers to an interview with the scrumptious (my term) Lucy Worsley, in which Ms W had declared she’d ‘opted out of reproduction’. The letter applauded this life choice, as it reflected her own. One argument for childlessness, to be fair, would be that no more potential feminists would be born. It still seems a high price to pay. The letter also includes the following gem:

My GP… told me to ‘grow up’ when I approached him, aged 28, for an alternative form of reliable contraception, after taking the pill for far too long.

After many years of positive discrimination for female medical students most GPs will soon be women, so such problems will become a thing of the past. Such a shame that a higher proportion of female GPs than male GPs abandon their medical careers, or opt to work part-time (whether or not they have children), or refuse to work in the evenings or weekends… still, millions of people suffer a poor GP service, and taxpayers are hit for a shedload more money to make up for lazy female GPs, while the only beneficiaries are… who, exactly? What a fine thing equality is.

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.
