Getting nervy about going “home” for the first time in near enough 20 years. It’s changed drastically in that time apparently. The leisure centre where I went swimming has closed, THE toy shop to go to has closed, the Metro system has finally reached us. None of this matters so long as I can get batter with my chips (scraps in Yorkshire), stottie cake (big buns the size of pizzas), and I can get fresh ham & pease pudding.
The image above is from the monthly north east comic called “Viz” (which isn’t as funny as it used to be). The character is radical feminist “Millie Tant”. Now, I’ve been buying and reading the comic since the late eighties and where some of the stories shown are laugh out loud, others are slow burners or out right dull, but they all tend to share something in common with most other comics and cartoons in that the characters portrayed are extreme examples of reality.
If “Sid the Sexist” really existed, he’d be locked up and the key thrown away. If Biffa Bacon and his family we’re real, he’d be in foster care, and his parents again, locked up for child abuse / neglect etc. We read these things and understand that to be true. The comic is meant to be a fantasy world where anything can and does happen.
Now coming back to old Millie. Up until recently, I saw her as another one of these extreme characters that had been blown out of proportion by the comic to make it funny, make their point etc, but in my dealings with radfem lunactics recently, Millie seems to be more documentary than comedic character.
Prove me wrong radfems, and remember, if you have to swear or use made-up words like “mansplaining” to make your argument, you really don’t have much weight for your argument now do you? Funny how my spellchecker questions the spelling of “mansplaining”.
As per, my comments dissapeared, I think they must have banned me from posting ever, so reblogging on my own blog page and will post my comment beneath it.

If I accept Danny as a woman, which the Dyke March committee does, that means that a straight woman has been welcomed with open arms by the NYC Dyke March committee as a participant and now, as a leader. Because lesbians NEED straight women to lead us and tell us what to do?
If I don’t see Hammer as a woman, as a lot of regular Jane participants in the community don’t, that…

Wow! Such hate from you Brennan. We’ve all seen the videos. If you we’re attacked, then report it to the police, but you we’re the one swearing for all the world to see throwing your weight around. Where we’re you on the organising committee, or are you just one of these people who’ll turn up after not helping only to criticise the hard work of other people? Oh, sorry, only joking, there, that should put it all right, according to you. Get a life and stop trying to spoil other peoples with your non stop hate filled bile.
So, I was going to ignore this news item when a friend passed it along.
As you might imagine, I have hundreds of friends and acquaintances who email me various items on gender identity and other anti-woman developments. I am truly grateful to receive these tidbits and for the women and men just as dedicated to eradicating gender as I am. Because we are all not buying this gender bullshit.
So, we keep each other company, and we watch and opine. We hope for improvements and wish to god this planet wasn’t so fucked up.
