You've noted that while society's happy for a famous man to age, and become distinguished, and generally wander around looking like a fucking wizard, the women generally still seem to be 20 years younger, and standing there on the cover of magazines, all like, "Oh! You've watched the whole Caitlyn Jenner trans thing unfold and gone, "You know what — this all seems fair enough. You like women being equal to men — which is all that feminism means. Because I am a chronic over-sharer, and incapable of keeping secrets. Unfortunately, in both cases, the entire future of the world does rest on people being able to say those words properly, and not mumbling "femernism", or "envibeoment". Which are both, when you think about it, much odder-sounding. 'The Man'So, when women talk about "The Man", we're not talking about you. And we remembered all the times on social media, or in conversations, an angry man has said, "Women are WINNING now. It is MEN who are being silenced", and it all made sense. But we don't want to go on about it to you, because that would be morbid. — but we must also work for less money, as discussed above. This is why, maybe, women can become suddenly furious — why online discussions about feminism suddenly ignite into rage. I'm gonna be honest with you — for the first five years of my adult life, most of my decisions were made by the contents of my pants. If we're getting sexually harassed, is it because we're wearing the wrong skirt? Besides, as discussed above, men need feminism almost as badly as women do. The cream product I use to cure it works very well, but its active ingredient appears to be urea.How does this react with my skin to cure the problem? Someone who fingered you said it was like diddling a Gonk. No mumbling Like you, we feel a bit embarrassed about saying the word "feminism". Because remember that patriarchy's bumming you as hard as it's bumming us. You, meanwhile, are unable to talk about your feelings lest you get punched in the nuts by "a lad" telling you not to be "a bender". Being a woman doesn't make "being a woman" any easier. It's like having an exploding, insane blood-bag of pain up in your business end — nothing really prepares you for when it all kicks off. The next, you're suddenly having to wedge a tiny Barbie mattress in your knickers, crying while you watch , and eating Nurofen Plus like they're Tic Tacs. Have you ever tried to scrub blood out of a Premier Inn sheet at 6am, using just travel shampoo and your toothbrush? We're not dealing with this in a special, noble lady-way. We've seen our biggest female role-models and icons shamed in the press, over and over: computers hacked and nude pictures released; sex-tapes released. One of the few times I have been personally offended was when Martin Amis commented on a column I wrote about female masturbation. You're just getting up in the morning, putting on your trousers and getting on with stuff. Male feminists We're embarrassed when other women say, "Men can't be feminists! Imagine if you had to get your bum-hole stripped every 30 days — lest the mean girls at school corner you on the bus home and go, "I've heard you're like Catweazle down there. " chats, we're just identifying the general locus of the problem, ie, most of the power and influence being held by a small amount of men. I can't emphasise enough how much it's not about burning penises. Periods We're still pretty traumatised about our periods, even though we're now 40. We're just people with a whole load more laundry issues than you. Abortion Likewise, imagine accidentally getting pregnant at 16, then having to run past a barrage of anti-abortion protestors outside your local clinic, all holding up pictures of dead foetuses. From the moment we grew our tits, we've been cat-called in the street; commented on by relatives ("Ooooh, she's big-boned"; "Well, you'll be a heart-breaker") as if we weren't standing there in front of them, hearing all this. Ninety per cent of what men wear is "some trousers".
