Kevin Myers: Modern women don't give a damn about grim tales of oppression from whiny media minnies

Kevin Myers

The female sex falls into two distinct categories. The first is that of the women I personally know, who are bawdy and girly and talk about food and fashion and clothes and sex and breasts and like dirty jokes and gossip and celebrity magazines.

And then there is this other female sex, who are funless and dour and oppressed and always being picked on by society and by men, and whose existence I know of only because I am told of them by the minnies in the media. It's not that I seldom meet the Second Oppressed Sex, I NEVER meet them.

Now if David Attenborough described animals as inaccurately as the media minnies described women, then he would have become a street-sweeper, and, better still, one who couldn't tell the difference between a banana peel and a wet haddock.
