Anyone noticed how the few women on mock the week hardly ever open their mouths? Don't think I've ever seen the team with the female on actually win. No doubt feminists think this is down to some sort of sexism but surely they just aren't good enough? - they rarely make me laugh when they do solo stand up either so the show itself isn't having an influence.

I'd argue they know they're only there because of the gender and this further reduces their confidence and ability to be funny (although most of them didn't have much of that to begin with anyway).

There are few good female comedians out there as it is, but the sort that make it onto the BBC are especially poor. Why can't feminists just accept that men and women tend to be better at different things?

Only article missing from this round up is this:
