This is the first of what I fear will be a long series of posts accusing some particularly nasty form of misogyny I have encountered and that no one else seems to have noticed.
Today I bring you this pearl from “The Now Show”, a comedy programme for BBC Radio 4. That’s right, it’s paid by people’s taxes. As if that ever stopped anyone pumping sexism in the already saturated modern culture. And since The Now Show, despite being a part of the BBC AND of Radio 4, doesn’t seem to be very welcoming of criticism, ie: they don’t allow comments on their web site, I felt I had to make use of my little corner of the world to dump the manure that is crushing my sensitive heart and to DENOUNCE THE NOW SHOW FOR THEIR BLATANT.. how can I but it?… MISOGYNY.
“Prince William apparently used a 10 million pound REF (something or other) helicopter to get him and his brother to a stag night”
Way to go for the future king! He has to continue with a long tradition of denigrating women and he’s definitely catching up in his short, spoilt and otherwise entirely pointless existence. But this is not what has bugged me the most.
“(…) so we’ve asked our audience what’s the best perk of their job…”
Well, what did you expect? Some kind of QUESTIONING of the well approved and embraced nature of the stag night??? Of course not. They could have at least mentioned that going to a stag night doesn’t constitute part of either of the princes “jobs”, if they can be said to have ANY. But questioning ANYTHING seems to be out of modern society’s mental capabilities.
That’s why something like this can take place:
“… and I have to say they have responded magnificently to this. (…). What’s the best perk of your job? An endless sucession of hot babe eye-candy to oogle. Ever exploited it? No, I’m their teacher. ”
*insane laugher and clapping from the audience ensues*.
I’m sure I don’t need to explain to anyone reading THIS blog WHY this kind of SHITE is NEGATIVE and, in now effing way, FUNNY. But apparently, everyone else in this world doesn’t seem to get it. Shame there’s very little chance of them coming across this blog or any other feminist blog for that matter.
Then we are all shocked when a peadophile makes it to the news. That includes the BBC news.
