On June 16, 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.
Lucian is in Sweden these days so, naturally, Sweden will get a bit more focus than usual. But, since the previous episode – other things have happened too. Philip Davies (speaker at last year’s ICMI) has retained his seat following the snap elections that took place in Britain. And the feminist tears were delightful – especially since they first thought that Davies had lost.
In other news, Sadhiq Khan’s food department has concluded that feminism is to be blamed for obesity. Now this will be hard to spin by feminists. Meanwhile, in Sweden, the most feminist country in Europe – the total number of women suffering from FGM has continuously risen in the last several years (while the number of victims of MGM has remained constant). Speaking about this is harder though since this is considered “racist” in Sweden and, as a study shows, the majority of Swedes favor censorship of “racist” messages.
In other other news, the American stupidity of “manspreading” has finally seeped into some policy. Madrid banned “manspreading”. On a more positive note, Switzerland may change its legal definition for rape to also include men. These, and other news will be covered in detail tonight.
So the stories discussed tonight are as follows:

‘Feminism fuelled obesity crisis’ says Sadiq Khan’s head of food board
