You see, it might not have escaped your notice, kraken-lovers, that amongst all of the social idiocies that I write about sexism and the need for feminism is right up there with how often David Cameron has boffed one off over one of Boris Johnson’s digestives in an Etonian dormitory. Since Kraken Junior tore her way through my nuptial nook I’ve realised just how grim life is out there for a young girl. I’ve also realised that there are a lot of lobe-shattering opinions about how we deal with it and none has made me choke on my own tongue more than those of Body Gossip’s Natasha Devon, a campaigner who thinks that women should dumb down (her words) their fight for equality.

Her latest explanation of her theory was gifted to the world via the cracking Feminist Times. “We (feminists) failed to come up with a cohesive agenda we could all agree on. Essay.
