  • Mon, 18:54: Re last RT. Yet another white man telling a woman what to think for feminist reasons.
  • Mon, 19:00: Obviously the shirt was inappropriate. It should have been this one: http://t.co/a5ZzH9GsCe
  • Mon, 21:02: Back to not discussing feminism lest it over-tax my delicate little brain. Better leave such things to the men.
  • Tue, 09:47: Aaargh! The new security at @EDI_Airport is a much longer walk on a floor that hurts my ankle more than the old one.
  • Tue, 10:15: Soon I have to brave the dreaded floor again, to get to the gate.

It was alright in the 70s.

Mrs. Slocombe
Just watched a terrifying programme on Channel 4 about 70s TV and the casual sexism, and open paedophilia within. Apparently it also covered racism and homophobia, but I missed that bit. They had various stars commenting, both ones around at the time, and younger ones who were seeing this stuff for the first time.

It was quite hard-hitting stuff, and if someone wanted a primer on what is meant by "rape culture", it would be a good one. But something bugged me. The women commenting - actors, comedians, journalists - were much more nuanced. They looked at the material, and analysed it. They discussed the appropriation of sexual liberation by middle-aged men, and the older ones talked about their own mixed feelings at the time. A journalist noted that this was the culture in which Jimmy Saville etc operated.

The men, on the other hand, seemed keen to note how much this is in the past, were louder in their condemnation of the behaviour and attitudes depicted, and smugger that we don't do that kind of thing any more.

Well, maybe not quite as blatantly.
