    Awesome, I can relate to Helena...but er, not to that other one ;-) Also, why does SHE have to be so so rude ?

    It amazes me that people still deny science like this. The more radical people are, the more they seem to deny science.

    Oh come on they gave Barrack Obama a gratuitous Nobel Prize I so no reason not to give a few to women.

    Oxymoron: "Feminism as an intellectual discipline" Greer@19:50
  • universal skeptic 2017-02-12 05:49:11
    At least Greer is honest (unlike most of her ilk) in saying that women do not want equality but rather privileged difference (i.e. special status based upon their special feminine traits) This is a radical departure from current SJW wisdom that all sex differences are socially constructed. Of course Greer is now on the outs with feminist establishment, and has been deplatformed for her non-conforming views. It is assumed that identical outcomes is by definition a good thing. Should we force women to take rolls that they do not want in the pursuit of equal outcomes.

    Greer is a misandrist and an ideologue.
  • Gaz Bomb 2017-02-07 00:54:54
    I should add, having returned to this site from another discussion involving Cronin, that, fresh and persuasive as Cronin's arguments are, she repeats them ad nauseum. Nature V Nurture debates in general are pretty old stuff. I think that anyone who tries holding the position that one or the other is exclusively responsible for behaviour is sailing toward hidden shoals.
  • Gaz Bomb 2017-02-07 00:20:54
    I like what Cronin has to say, some of which she repeats here. Greer is more flexible in her arguments. You have to wonder at times if it's more important for Greer to win points than promote an ideology, however Cronins interjections somewhat undermines her "females are non-competitive" position. An interesting discussion. Colonel Harts comments strike me as being made by by the really screechy type of "feminist", the host was totally professional.
  • Colonel Hart 2017-02-05 21:55:36
    The host of the discussion was surprisingly condescending and obnoxious.

    Weird how entrenched the feminist dogma was at the BBC even near 20 years ago. The male presenter seems astounded that the Doctor is arguing against the idea that males and females are basically identical and differences are entirely cultural.

    I never thought I'd say this as I've always disliked Germaine Greer, but I miss the days when feminists actually had some kind of ability to discuss things and not get triggered. You know how far we've regressed when Germaine Greer feels like progress from where we are

    Germaine Greer, science ignoramus.

    For the thinkers here. Consider the rape hysteria that we see in US colleges. A very good sum up of what has transpired is shown by this video; watch: *RAPE HYSTERIA - Part 1 | History Repeats Itself*. Then listen to Helena Cronin's words from 24:45 (click on), this will explain the cause of the college rape hysteria ... deliberately amplified by feminists who seek to change the law.

    However much intelligent observation and analysis has enabled these two women to form opinions on the comparative differences of male and female behaviour, the fact is that their musings do not assist global society, not in any tangible way at least. Swelling further the tome-bound shelves of the British Library has not in the past delivered any measurable form of equality or fairness, however it has undoubtedly created a comfortable life for some through book sales.

    Helena can iron my shirts any time
  • Knight Chime 2016-04-19 14:05:39
    Actually, wouldn't a wife with many husbands make a lot more sense? What does a man need many wives for? He hasn't got the stamina. Unless you come from a backward society that thinks that the goal is littering the planet with as much offspring as possible, having many wives doesn't "produce" anything over having many husbands except liability & unsatisfied wives. Nothing reflects culture more than sexual fantasies. There's no evidence that they are biologically determined. Conin's a fool.

    What a hateful asshole Germaine Greer is. At every opportunity, she needlessly uses spiteful and pejorative language against men. Totally unnecessary. I'm glad the trans community is shitting all over her now. Taste of her own fucking medicine.
  • meaninglesssoul1 2016-02-19 21:04:20
    wow.. I could listen to these two women all day and night! Brillant! Both exceptional and thoughtful women who do identify as feminists. Which i have no argument against their traditional positions as well as how i can completely agree with their positions against modern mistakes of feminism.
  • The Chidds 2016-02-03 01:07:04
    It makes you wonder why feminists are so keen to have women go into science when they don't both listening to the ones that are in already!

    Germaine Greer is so up her own ass she simply cannot tell when you are right and she is wrong.

    Hollywood, je t'aime (2009)

    Recently broken up and barely enduring a dreary winter, gay Parisian Jérôme Beaunez impulsively books a solo Christmas vacation to Los Angeles. While there he meets some colorful locals and pursues a dormant desire to become a movie star - but never can quite put the past behind him. In this meditation on love and narcissism across continents, Jérôme goes far in the sun-drenched City of Angels but ultimately arrives at an old Hollywood maxim: there's no place like home.
