New Frontiers In Femiloon Victimhood

While their colleagues were busily employing a time-honoured misogynistic slur against a genuinely high-achieving woman, the BBC's femiloon contingent were tied up inventing a whole new victim group.

Yep, the patriarchy is discriminating against female celebutards. But hang on: isn't the whole celeb thing kind of, well, girly anyway ? It's not like Frank Lampard's on the list.

True, the Rat Milker is there, and she does indeed has an almost supernatural ability to remind men why their divorce was worth every penny - hell, she even reminds me of my ex-wife, and I've never been married - but it turns out the rabid sow is the Rosa Park of celebutards:
Her emotional stances on press intrusion and the specifics of her divorce battle, not to mention her defiant drenching of McCartney's lawyer, facilitates her categorisation as the traditional hysteric, with the resultant labelling of Mills as an attention seeker encountering established cultural prejudice concerning 'unfeminine' behaviour.
Or it could be she's a rabid sow.

Incidentally, that quote was from "Aberdeen University academic [and clearly Category 5 mangina - DJ] Alan Dodd". So if you're wondering why petrol is so expensive, it's because of the money the government's raking off to employ people to write papers on Heather Mills.

There is a serious point here:
In another abstract for the upcoming conference, Salford University's Kirsty Fairclough writes: "Celebrities including Britney Spears, Amy Winehouse, Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Rumer Willis, Mischa Barton and Kerry Katona are routinely condemned for their perceived excessive lifestyles in terms of their disregard for the apparent rules of femininity through extreme diets or weight gain, drug abuse, supposed lack of fashion sense/style, and an 'unfeminine' need for fame and attention.
Perceived excesses ? Plus when did being a smackhead get to be a gender thing ? Do these women really get worse publicity than, say, Pete Docherty ?

Call it a hunch, but the rise of girl gangs and the like might just have something to do with a liberal establishment that not only refuses to criticise dysfunctional lunacy, but even goes as far as to cast the lunatics in question as avatars of female empowerment.
