Whilst mooching around the stalls at Feminism in London the other week, I happened upon a stall for the website Womens’ Views on News. And I’m now a bit addicted to it. Whilst the news stories are great of themselves, what really draws me in is the small view it gives you on what it’s like to be a man, at least where news is concerned. All the stories are about women, women, women – almost (ye gods!) like we were the default gender or something equally preposterous. Men, where mentioned, are ‘other’, the side-show if you like. This is what it must feel like to be a man reading, oh, every other single news outlet in the known world. And I tell you, it rocks. No wonder we’re going to have to rip privilege from their cold, dead fingers, eh?
