I was looking through a news website and noticed an article titled Making Feminism Fun.

I didn’t read it. Pointless really.

Isn’t about time in this day and age that the whole subject of feminism was dropped?

It’s the same old mantra wheeled out time after time.

Fair enough, the suffragettes had a point when they chained themselves to some railings and chucked themselves in front of horses.

But it’s time to move on now. Look at the recent Wimbledon tennis – the men’s final was a five-set epic lasting for hours, whereas the women’s final was a 55-minute damp squib.

But men and women receive equal prize money. That’s not fair, I’m chaining myself to the umpire’s chair next year.
