In response to Caroline Farrow: Who would have thought it? Germaine Greer as a champion of motherhood, Barry Sheridan wrote:
While I understand what Ms Greer is trying to assert, it has to be said it is too late. For years feminists and females in general have benefited from the desire of society to accord them privilege, a trend that morphed into a movement that went further by trying to portray women as superior beings. This attitude is fading in the face of two unrelated factors, firstly the west is becoming essentially amoral, and with it indifferent to concepts such as motherhood that have been integral to our very being. The second element playing a role is slow in coming, but it is coming, that is the evolving attitude of more and more men, who are seeing association with females as fruitless. You reap what you sow Ms Greer. So you shall!
