Do we need men, asks the BBC iWonder web site, which speculates on the prospect of ‘Man’s End’.
This ‘only joking’ premise is based on the speculation that the rise of genetic engineering means the human race can reproduce as one sex. So naturally, being the BBC, it took this to mean that males should be wiped out.
It is difficult to look at this ‘only having a laugh’ report and its gleeful speculation about a cull of half the human population and not draw a horrible conclusion about luvvies. You get the impression they secretly fantasise about killing off unfashionable demographics and producing endless clones of people like themselves. Many a true word is spoken in jest. Except when it’s a BBC Radio comedy, which is just Newsnight’s prejudices with canned laughter – and an even smaller, more incestuous audience.
I wonder if this institionalised sectarianism is a million miles away from the BBC’s recruitment policy.
We do not need the Y chromosome any more, the Beeb says. I suspect if the jackboot were on the other foot, and a man wrote something this divisive about female genetic coding, BBC News would be holding a joint televised raid on their house with Scotland Yard’s Anti-Chromophobia Squad.
We all know that BBC sorts present as wonderfully kind, good people. So it is amazing when the scales fall and they seem to be like monsters from a Stephen King novel. Luvvie Louts. It is almost as if they are deeply disturbing individuals in private. This seems to be true of all ‘civil servants’ (that’s two lies in one job title). If you fall asleep at a desk in any public sector body, I suspect that someone from HR will slip a pod underneath. As a result, all luvvies seem to have a thing about controlling reproduction and snuffing out generations of those they do not approve of. This often expresses itself in attacks on children.
First there was that 10:10 campaign film, where Richard Curtis and friends invested enormous time and expense to make a nasty little film about killing the children of climate change sceptics. It is not like they made an offhand joke in a locker room. They would have spent months working on this utter, utter Goebbels.
More recently, there was the speech therapist from Great Ormond Street children’s hospital, who openly admitted she wants the children of Leave voters to suffer horrible impediments. I wonder if this was an opinion she had to hide when she applied for the post on NHS Jobs. More likely it was a must-have job requirement. “Are you committed to discriminating against the children of parents who do not share your key visions and values? Yes? Good answer!”
Well so much for the public sector’s enthusiasm for diversity, eh? I suppose that was another faked passion that served as a useful disguise.
A bit like when Ken Livingstone endlessly used gay rights as a moral grandstand until he unwittingly let his true feelings slip. You may remember he sneered that the Conservative Party is ‘riddled’ with homosexuals, as if gay people were a sort of societal cancer.
The tragedy is that this spiteful selectivity and lack of diversity has badly affected the BBC. If they allowed a wider spectrum of opinions to be heard, they would be more in touch with public opinion and they would not conceive so many disasters. But somewhere in the BBC/Labour people-processing Labs, they cooked up some horrible monstrosities, such as the pink campaign bus, the Russell Brand show and the Ed Stone.
So they really should not be lecturing us on selection.
