Zelo Street: Sun Pundit Bullies ANOTHER Teenager

Ms Mensch is now at it again. After the Telegraph’s tedious pundit Julia Hartley Brewer found that a debate she had attended had turned out not necessarily to her advantage, she used the bully pulpit afforded her by that paper to tell anyone still reading of “My thoughts after an evening spent debating ‘Is feminism the new F word’. Deep sighs all round”.

“I spent most of the evening being lectured on how to be a proper feminist by a 17 year old fellow panellist” she whined. Just to make sure readers got the point, a link was inserted into the online version to confirm that that panellist was June Eric-Udorie, who has written for the Guardian and Staggers. Ms Mensch, who has a remarkable ability to detect arguments involving young pundits, decided to wade in. Ms Eric-Udorie was unimpressed.

“Hello – thanks for RTing abuse and opening me up to more. Don’t get what your *issue* is with outspoken young women … And one more thing – it says a lot about you to patronise young women like me and [Abby Tomlinson] on Twitter. It’s really sad” she responded. Ms Mensch engaged maximum patronising mode: “You weren’t ‘abused’, #GenerationSnowflake, you were rightly slammed by @JuliaHB for moronic fauxminism”.

Would Ms Mensch care to tell what was wrong with Ms Eric-Udorie’s arguments? You jest. It’s all about hectoring and patronising.

      I do.
      It shows the kind of person the Conservative Party considers worthy to be an MP and a candidate for Parliament – the kind who bullies teenagers.
