‘Radio Times’ article about a woman killing a man

The first thing I do when I get the new issue of the Radio Times is to check it for feminist content. In the latest issue we have Alison Graham whining on about something or other – no change there, then – and I was surprised to find a man has penned the ‘Letter of the week’. So far so good. But the writer complains about cuts to the BBC budgets, and offers to pay a sum in addition to the licence fee. You couldn’t make it up. I suppose it was inevitable that when a man wrote the ‘Letter of the week’ he would have to be a Leftie.

An article which caught my eye was by Mary Ann Sieghart, relating the story of Chantelle Taylor, the first woman known to have killed in combat in the British army. A medic, she shot dead a Taliban fighter in Helmand province in Afghanistan. Ms Taylor is reported as saying, ‘It’s not harder for a woman to take a life. It’s survival of the fittest. There’s a fair share of men out there who couldn’t do it.’ What a proud day for womankind. How appropriate that the story appears in a magazine which relentlessly ridicules traditionally-minded women.

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.
