Germaine ‘relic of a past era’ Greer has
spoken out opened her fat gob in defence of the family to protect the Feminine Imperative, specifically motherhood.
Feminist commentator Germaine Greer has criticised Elton John for calling his partner David Furnish “mother” of their two sons.
Speaking at the Hay Literary Festival, Greer accused the men of “deconstructing motherhood”, criticising them for the fact that Furnish was listed as mother on their children’s birth certificates.
“Sometimes I think that really the problem is the concept of motherhood, which we can’t give any real structure to,” she said.
“Sir Elton John and his ‘wife’ David Furnish have entered on the birth certificate of their two sons that David Furnish is the mother. I’m sorry. That will give you an idea of how the concept of motherhood has emptied out. It’s gone, it’s been deconstructed.”
Deconstructing marriage is liberating, deconstructing fatherhood is empowering…but motherhood, it seems, is sacred.
Egg donors, in stark contrast to sperm donors…care, apparently.
“It depends entirely on where she is if she is going to be allowed to know what happens to the eggs. And women tend to care. An egg is not a sperm, we do not produce 400 million of them in one go. One miserable little egg pops every month.
“I’m sorry. Did we talk about this? Did we sit down and talk about what eggs mean to women?”
The cash, or the reduced costs of IVF for the wimminz…immaterial. Women care. Men have to accept having NO rights over their sperm after ejaculation, but that’s different because men are sociopaths. Wimminz
Has the silly moo ever listened to the crap she spouts? Either you support traditional marriage in order to raise kids within a nuclear family, or you don’t. This type of disingenuous buffet approach where only wimminz rights (distinct from children’s rights or society’s interests) count…it’s bullshit.
I know that she was never a great thinker (maybe in fembot circles she was – a very low bar), maybe she’s now got senility cutting in? That would be a tricky diagnosis to make, I reckon.
