The Voice of Europe – Episode 144 – Appreciating the progress in culture
On February 24, Jon Gunnarsson, Lucian Vâlsan and James Huff, will be going through the news concerning sexual politics on the Old Continent in the last two weeks.
In this episode, most of the news items will be covered with the view of how things changed, culturally speaking. Many of the news items in this episode aren’t exactly “news” for the veterans in the politically activated non-feminist sector but they are news for the rest of the world.
Less than 5 years ago it was unimaginable to see in a mainstream source to talk about the dangers of false allegations. Let alone a pop-culture figure. Now it’s becoming increasingly acceptable – which is great.
In other news, the progressive double standards are now also in full display. What was in 2012 mere discussions on obscure forums is now mainstream talk with regards to sex-based affirmative action – as can be seen with the examples of the Sydney University and the Bergen University, the latter case being covered in this episode.
So the stories discussed tonight are as follows:
Teachers who avoid touching children are guilty of child abuse, experts claim
Philip Davies: When I Stood Up for Equality, Parliament Heckled and Jeered
Domestic violence: Theresa May to oversee new law
Ireland to get social media watchdog
Pamela Anderson will campaign for men falsely accused of rape because of Julian Assange friendship
