On August 4, Jon Gunnarsson, Lucian Vâlsan and James Huff, will be going through the news concerning sexual politics on the Old Continent in the last week.
In the dispute between Feminism and the Free Market, one should always bet on the latter. Swedish feminists have learned this the hard way when it emerged that the CEO of the Dollar Store – whom feminists vowed to boycott and put out of business because he expressed disdain and mockery to anything feminist – just announced that his store network experienced a 30% growth compared to last year’s similar period. If only someone would let Tesco know that not-pandering to feminists is not a tragedy.
In other news, two studies have revealed that women are people. And, as such, they are indeed capable of rape and, like the other half of people, they don’t in fact struggle more than men to juggle work and family life – even though they might complain more.
These and other news will be discussed tonight.
So the stories discussed tonight are as follows:
Women DON’T struggle more than men to juggle work and family life, study finds
Male rape: Men ‘forced into sex with threats, lies and blackmail’ by women, survey finds
Tesco to cut prices on 100 women’s sanitary products and pay ‘tampon tax’ itself

Wie die Politik häusliche Gewalt verharmlost – „Wer die Mutter verprügelt, ist noch lange kein schlechter Vater“
