As stories go this is right up there with: “Pope demands apology for outrageous ‘He’s a Catholic’ claim” and “Bears in furious denial of ‘sub-arboreal defecation’ slur.”
But the Guardian and the Guardian-reading bully mob clearly think that this is an issue of momentous significance because they’ve published a story titled “Pressure mounts on PM to respond to Philip Davies’ feminist zealots’ comments.”
Though I’ve read it half a dozen times now, I still can’t for the life of me what Davies has done wrong.
Is it his suggestion that feminists are zealots? If so, QED I’d say: their wild over-reaction proves his point more eloquently than anything Davies could have said in a speech.
If on the other hand, it’s the part about wanting to “have their cake and eat it” that’s made them turn all psycho, well what the speech shows is that Davies has taken considerable care to back up his point with concrete examples from real life.
“I don’t believe there’s an issue between men and women. The problem is being stirred up by those who can be described as militant feminists and the politically correct males who pander to this nonsense.
“It seems to me that this has led to an ‘equality but only when it suits’ agenda that applies to women. The drive for women to have so-called equality on all the things that suit the politically correct agenda but not other things that don’t is of increasing concern to me.
“For example, we hear plenty about increasing the numbers of women on company boards and female representation in parliament; however, there’s a deafening silence when it comes to increasing the number of men who have custody of their children or who have careers as midwives. In fact, generally there seems to be a deafening silence on all the benefits women have compared to men.”
Davies, in other words, is the victim of the same witch hunt hysteria that did for Nobel-prizewinning geneticist Sir Tim Hunt and Saatchi chairman Kevin Roberts. (Except in this case, it’s the witches themselves who are doing the hunting and generating the hysteria).
What’s particularly terrifying about these vindictive SJW harpies’ tactics – known as “Point and shriek” and “Isolate and swarm” – is that for the victim the truth is no defence.
