Mark Reason: Serena's sexism reflects America's culture of misandry

Article here. Excerpt:

'North America is the country where some women have gone on a long feminist march to misandry and it is poisoning the culture. American newspapers now routinely give women a platform to publish the most vile man-hating stuff in the name of feminism.

Suzanna Danuta Walters, a sociology professor and editor of the "gender studies journal" Sign, wrote in the Washington Post, "It seems logical to hate men...When they have gone low for all of human history, maybe it's time for us to go all Thelma and Louise and Foxy Brown on their collective butts."

"Going low" presumably includes the works of Shakespeare and Tolstoy, the paintings of da Vinci and Michelangelo, the music of Beethoven and the Beatles, the discovery of penicillin and electricity and all the other quite mind-shattering creations and inventions of the male sex through history.

And yet Walters is far from a lone voice in America. The creeping culture of western society is male denigration. Men spoof themselves. Homer Simpson is perhaps the supreme creation of a hapless 'everyman' quite unable to recognise his own depravity in the society of mass consumption.

But Homer is just the figurehead of a new range of male laughing stocks being bought into by many women. A Bon Marche ad portrays empowered women casually and 'accidentally' whacking idiot men about the head. An insurance ad shows a group of lads mucking around and driving a car over a cliff, followed by the message "why we insure only women".'
