"I worked with Freud in Vienna. We broke over the concept of penis envy. Freud felt that it should be limited to women."

Woody Allen-Zelig (1983)

Adventures of a lifetime in gender politics
#penisenvy #Freud

Sigmund Freud coined the term to explain the psyche of the female of the species. If we are to take Freud literally then we should also note that men are equally prone to suffer the malady of  "Penis Envy".

Come what may, if "Penis Envy" were engraved on a rock then that rock might, or might not, be considered the talisman of all misogynists.

On these pages I intend to carry that stone and enter the minefield of gender politics and hope for the best.

What does Germaine Greer think

about Essex Girls and #MeToo ?


"We played there last week at the Cliffs Pavilion, and I knew there was something familiar about you, that I recognised".

No Tory has ever dared suggest to my face that I should apply Norman Tebbit's Cricket Test to Mrs Monk.

Became the News for the wrong reasons this week. LauraK was an unpopular Tory person before I found out she was an unpopular Tory “woman”.
