Wimmin’s Studies 101: First semester Examination.

Question One – Tick three of the items in their correct order:

The point of Mr Parish’s item about Miranda Devine and Britney Spears is:

1. Devine’s comments are not appropriate coming from a conservative. This sort of thing should be left to Anne Summers aho has a much deeper understanding of the evil commercial exploitation of the female body.

2. Devine’s comments are not appropriate coming from an anglo. This sort of commentary should be left to Kaysar Trad who has a much deeper understanding of the shockingly impossible to resist temptations that these carnal matters present to young impressionable Islamic youth.

3. Mr Parish is a pornophile who is indulging a favourite net surfing pastime.

It’s much simpler than that. Howard/Corby/Spears all feign total innocence and/or love to shift the blame to anybody but themselves when something goes wrong. It’s an emporers new clothes metaphor. These people even believe they are doing the right thing. Living in denial, the whole lot.
