Reader’s Comment of the Week

In response to TCW: Stay tuned for our ‘New Look’, JB wrote:

“This site is a great antidote to the lies and lunacy spouted by the BBC, and other parts of the mainstream media.

I would like to express my thanks and appreciation to Kathy and Laura, and all the other contributors, for all the hard work that has obviously gone into creating and maintaining TCW.

May it go on to even greater success.”

TCW Hero of the Week

Columnist Allison Pearson for unmasking International Wimmin’s Day for what it really is. In a week where hashtag-driven oppression envy has been peddled far and wide, it is encouraging to know that there are some out there (other than us of course!) who don’t buy the Wimmin’s agenda nonsense.

Pearson said in a Telegraph column to mark the ‘special’ day that women “are half the human race, not some minority that requires patting on the head like a pigtailed infant coming second in the egg and sperm race” and that how “fatuous is it for women in advanced western countries to pretend that they belong in the same boat as women in Saudi Arabia where, according to Sharia law, a woman’s testimony in court is valued at half that of a man?” That’s oppression envy for you, sister!

“By insisting on victimhood, International Women’s Day perpetuates the very attitudes it’s battling against”. Say no more.

TCW Villain of the Week

Columnist Yasmin Alibhai-Brown waded into IWW with an inventive take on why men dominate the world and why they are so evil. Apparently, “the masculine power base is protected by willing handmaidens…this year, I think feminists need to speak out against female connivance and ruthlessness as well as male dominance.” That wouldn’t be those with views similar to us would it?

She continues, saying that “another growing irritation, for me, is women who have it all and still seek our attention and sympathies”… that wouldn’t be a profile fitted by well-known journalists and experts on ‘women’s issues’ – like her – would it?

Alibhai-Brown finishes by channelling what seems to be her inner freedom fighter, saying that “internal collaborators do almost as much harm to our cause as external enemies…it is time to get tough with women who betray other women”. Don’t buy the feminist agenda? Well then, according to Yasmin, you are a ‘collaborator’ – murky language to peddle a desperate argument.
