The Voice of Europe – Episode 165 – This hysteria is different
On November 3, 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.
Unlike previous sexual harassment and assault hysterias, this time is different. This time, perhaps for the first time in history (and certainly among the few times in history) – there is a serious and consistent pushback.
The snowball embodied by the #metoo campaign is meeting significant resistance – the kind of resistance that was quite hard to imagine less than a decade ago – up to Swedish members of Parliament speaking against it.
In other news, the British Feminist establishment is at it again trying to cancel the upcoming ICMI18 because Feminists (like most people, really) learn one thing from history: the fact that feminists learn nothing from history.
These and other news will be discussed tonight.
So the stories discussed tonight are as follows:
