The female cause rumbles on

On this organ we sometimes debate the complicated ground occupied by the stark binary issue of whether we’re either (1) out of touch with the 21st Century world and therefore should justifiably be treated as irrelevant simply because of our supposedly ‘old-fashioned’ views and the stage of [...]

Female tennis issues

I recently blogged on this organ on the subject of the French Open tennis authorities declaring that in future it would not be acceptable for Serena Williams to wear a cat suit on court during their tournament.
