Wanted: spirited male writers

Madam – I would like to assure last week's correspondent Joseph Condren that no, indeed, it is not just you being sensitive about female writers. I have written many times to our newspapers about their sexist attitude towards men. They feel they have a free hand in writing insulting articles. This goes right across the board in our papers.

What is worse is that their editors obviously back up these comments. Shame on them. Men should not put up with it for a single moment. Let's have a few more outspoken male writers in our newspapers to answer these snipers. Finally I would have to agree with Joseph that it says a lot more about these women journalists and their insecurities than men.
