This is just to highlight some welcome listening I heard today. This whent to air on Australia's national radio network, and that is very rare to hear in todays media. It is an opinion that sternly attacks feminism and its connected ideas. http://mpegmedia.abc.net.au/rn/podcast/2014/11/cpt_20141117.mp3
There are other similar topics in todays show and related ones in the previous weeks. The first link gets you to the media file of the story, this one to the show listings. http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/counterpoint/
There are other media streams through the 'listen' button if you need them.
Your ears should be refreshed after heaing, though the 'violence against women' topic does support the usual false premise that "its worse for women".

"What's behind this incredible mainstreaming of feminism? Is it something to celebrate? Is it really about winning full freedom and equality for women, or is it more about sanitising and controlling society in a new way, to make it suitable to what are patronisingly described as female sensitivities? Many feminists now spread fear about male behaviour and the culture of violence, and call for censorship of sexual images or punishment of men who catcall, leer and say sexist things so is this really a new and brilliant strike for human equality, or a new and scary form of authoritarianism?"
I'm mad.
I'm furious.
I've enough rage to fuel a thousand suns.
