I am really sorry for the lack of posts lately - work is crazy and remember to look at the sites on the left for the latest news (certainly Peter Lloyd's has caught the eye lately on the sad torment that Michael Le Vell endured and the politically correct driven case by the CPS). If he sues the CPS he should give the money to FASO!
One issue in recent weeks that shows the double standards in British life which by default shows the discrimination and automatic negative assumptions that men face is the recent issue over the requests to abort two children because they were the wrong sex. The Telegraph has an overview of articles following the CPS decision not to prosecute the two doctors who had considered the abortions based on gender.
The two issues here are that it seems to have gone unnoticed that one of the doctors was female (Dr Prabha Sivaraman) and also that the Telegraph chose in their story to use girls as the alleged babies to be aborted - it would have been better/equal to see what would happen if it was one boy and one girl then we could see any difference to the reactions especially as the Telegraph know it happens to boys and girls. Perhaps they felt if it was to be boys to be aborted it would be met with indifference from the world of the politically correct.
The comments from Helen Wollaston MP shows the hypocrisy of the situation: "I'm not anti-abortion, but selective abortion of girls harms women & reinforces misogynist attitudes. Why isn't that issue public interest?" One of the doctors who seemed content to carry out the abortions was a women so how can that be misogyny!
This is typical of the intellectual torture that the politically correct go through when the person found guilty of a crime against one their politically correct victims groups turns to be a member of a victim group themselves. It is why for years they turned a bling eye to forced marriage and even now they focus only on the role of the men not the women in the household.
It is much the same in the circumcision/FGM debate. When this nurse killed a baby (more here and here) when she circumcised him based on religion and not medical grounds. It seemed the nurse was above public criticism because she was a woman. If a male doctor had a killed a girl he was circumcising, it would be front page!
