Two famous Brits, Eric Gill and Bernard Shaw, expressed the view that teaching women to read and write and giving them the vote would lead to a mass breakdown in the relationship between men and women. Many others have expressed the view but not as politely as those two. Henry Miller's On the Ovarian Trolley is one and Simon Raven was ostracised by most of his friends for being forceful about it.
Now, before you jump all over me, try, do please try, to keep your heads and bear in mind that I have expressed no opinion on whether all that is good or bad or right or wrong but it is widely accepted, and I accept it, that this mass breakdown, in which Joe is but an iota, is a function of those two important factors.
It logically follows that Joe is just another victim of the process and all those in favour of it ought to remember their contribution to Joe's position which, I can assure him, is very common. I have personally witnessed dozens.
The ex-editor of Private Eye, a cousin of The Queen, bust up traumatically with a highly educated politically active woman in mid-life and took up with a table-swabber from Lyon's Corner House. (A coffee-shop on The Strand).
The reason I have no view is that I don't know for sure the economic and military aspects of equality of the sexes in either the medium or long term. I suspect that long term it will be a disaster.
I am up for an experiment to disenfranchise men and ban them from the education system just to demonstrate my neutrality.
For myself I wouldn't go near an educated politicised woman with a barge-pole.
and I never have. But that's merely a personal preference signifying nothing. Women don't have the hex
Are you for real or are you just pulling someones chain?? Sounds like BS to me.
