Honorary men....

The realpolitik behind feminism is cheap labour corruption, as I've outlined before - although it often comes disguised as man-hating crankiness. Thanks to James Higham for this extract from the Telegraph -

"Thomas the Tank Engine is setting a poor example to children and needs more female engines to encourage girls to become train drivers, Labour's shadow transport secretary has said. Mary Creagh described the lack of female train drivers in Britain as a 'national scandal' and said that children's television shows and 'negative stereotypes' are partly to blame. She called on train companies recruit more female drivers by advertising in magazines such as Good Housekeeping and Women's Own, and suggested that they need to offer more part time work. Mrs Creagh, a mother-of-two, singled out Thomas the Tank Engine for criticism. She said that while the books and television series have 'wonderful stories' and are 'incredibly popular', they have almost no female characters."

Encouraging girls to think of themselves as if they were boys starts early - in schools and even in many homes (see children's television) - with the real aim, pursued by the powers that be, being the gradual lowering of wages. But back to the Telegraph for a nice piece of quite unintentional irony - "Mrs Creagh also said that mechanical comprehension tests taken by prospective train drivers could discriminate against women. She said 'You don’t need mechanical competence to drive a train any more.'"

<sarc>Good, so now we know that the genders have different skill-sets - for example, women usually make lousy mechanics, while men aren't much cop at breastfeeding - unless, of course, they inject themselves with oestrogen to develop a Mary Creagh-approved "feminine side". Who'd a thunk it?</sarc>
