There\’s been that \”my god aren\’t comment sections awful\” thing over the last few days. You know the stuff, women writers on the net get shouted at, insulted, threatened, in a manner that men don\’t?
I\’m afraid that I have to admit to be a dreadful sexist on this matter. It\’s true, I do hurl the epithets around, quite delight in insulting, using Anglo-Saxon.
But the insults direct are almost always reserved for men. Where they are aimed at women they are much more gentle (no problem with calling Huhne a twat but Polly is going to be a trout).
So, there we have it, I\’m a sexist I\’m afraid. I insult women less and more gently just because they\’re women.
