MI·SOG·Y·NY. Hijacked by pedants
Oct 18, 2012
I'm starting to feel pretty worn down by the commentary surrounding the Prime Minister's speach on sexism and misogyny. Not because the debate has been heated (it has) not because it's been partisan (it has) and not even because it has been used as a springboard for even more sexist insults directed not just at the PM, but at women in general (if you are a masochist, have a look at the comments on Andrew Blot's blog).
No. What's depressing me is how reductive and pointless the majority of the arguements have been.
If one more person starts their speech or article with the phrase, 'the dictionary definition of misogyny is,' I will go postal.
