Vive la difference? Qu’est-ce que c’est la difference?

I started to read (but soon stopped, as it was too irritating and badly written) an article in Saturday’s Grauniad about internet trolls. It was written by a woman dolled up in makeup, hairdo and neat eyebrows.

I heard James Naughtie say yesterday on Book Club, when accused of being dismissive of a character in Tulip Fever, that he was a man, and thus didn’t have the necessary empathetic intuition.

It’s only when we stop living out these ridiculous, unfounded sexual stereotypes that we’ll get equality and that internet trolling will cease.
