An Evening with Germaine Greer review – hour-long ramble misses the #metoo moment

Greer has long attracted criticism from feminist communities for her claims that transgender women are “not real women”. Now, to the discomfort of the audience, she doubled down, adding her proclamation that transgenderism is a way for men to do away with women altogether: “What if what is really happening is that women are going to get written out of the contract? Women are the people who give birth, but how long will that go on for? When will we have in vitro gestation? It’s around the corner, it’s practically there … If we didn’t have children, would they even put up with us?”

[ed: despite the criticisms made in this article, as usual Greer
is ahead of the pack and refuses to just focus on what’s
fashionable.]
