The problem with modern feminism in its radical form is that it radicalises young women into believing everything that does not go their way is down to sexism, a sexist system and evil men. They want equality but when it does not 'work' for them - they don't want equality - though they would never say it. This McCarthyism can be seen in sport and the Olympics has given it a new platform.
Last month, the site pointed out the hypocrisy of those who wanted and got equality at Wimbledon when clearly there is a difference in the work needed to win a men's title compared to a women's title.
This week, we have had silver medalist Lizzie Armitstead raising the issue of sexism in cycling about the coverage and the money (Guardian1, Guardian 2 and BBC) . If women get paid less in the Velodrome competing in the same events (in terms of the races which are circa the same distances as the men's) that is unfair but is Ms Armitstead saying the men on the Tour De France should get paid the same as women in their Tour de France which is nowhere near as tough.
Following hot on the heels of this is Denise Lewis calling for a separate women's Sports Personality of the Year (thanks everyone for sending me the link). Again, on the one hand women like Denise want to be seen as equals to men but then when it does not work in their favour (as Bradley Wiggins is likely to win) they hypocritically call for inequality but dress it up as though they calling for equality. Ms Lewis is just indulging in man-bashing and witch hunting.
Gabby Logan though speaks up for equality in the coverage proving that many many women understand the meaning of equality (Daily Telegraph and Daily Mail). A short debate took place on the Daily Mail.
Lastly, there has been much about girl power in the papers about their achievements and there is nothing per se wrong with that if the tone is right (that is, it is not anti-male). Everyone in Britain should be pleased about the success of our female athletes, and of course, our male ones.
Except though, it is then taken up by the radical gender feminists and turned into a 'it proves women are superior to men debate'. This article in The Guardian sums it up , and sums up why they are the biggest hypocrites when it comes to equality. Who cares if women win more medals than men - it is not relevant in an equal society.
