    I have a USB stick which has been through the wash whilst 'de-gloved' (i.e. no plastic cover, just the port and bare PCB) at least twice and that still works.

    I reckon they're indestructible
    Please don't say de-gloved.
    It's a perfectly cromulent word

    The latest episode of The Good Fight (catch up on All4) is a show going from liberal conscience to radicalised resistance.

    What other mainstream big budget drama is running an episode on punching nazis like that?

    @simpleexplodingmaybe it has been very political indeed. The mad animated parts are fun too.

    @Mr_Sleep it deserves such a bigger audience than I assume it has on More4.

    The Good Wife must seem like such a staid, uptight production in retrospect.

    And Marissa is a total tv crush of mine.

    @simpleexplodingmaybe yes it does. I feel like the courtroom parts can feel a little stale but everything else going on is good.

    Me too!

    Itís one of those where itís an Ďhonestí mistake, and I donít think he realised the racist implications. But equally the blind spot to those implications in itself suggests something.

    His apology is proper victim at the end.

    ďOnce again. Sincere apologies for the stupid unthinking gag pic earlier. Was supposed to be joke about royals vs circus animals in posh clothes but interpreted as about monkeys & race, so rightly deleted. Royal watching not my forte. Also, guessing it was my turn in the barrel.Ē

    He's so frustratingly close to getting it and throws it all away at the last second. Like a goalie on a 90s football bloopers video.

    He was damned if he was going to post what his PR agency had written for him without a final thought of his own.

    I was thinking that but read his twitter now...

    "The call to fire me from @bbc5live was a masterclass of pompous faux-gravity. Took a tone that said I actually meant that ridiculous tweet and the BBC must uphold blah blah blah. Literally threw me under the bus. Could hear the suits knees knocking. #Fuckem"

    "Now it's started raining. Perfect. #IntoEveryLife"

    Fuck him.

    Why is it so hard for people to say "I didn't realise the implications of what I was saying, sorry, I fucked up" and leave it at that? Like, you don't have to dig deeper.

    I can't believe the BBC bigwigs are getting away with attempted murder like that.

    Or was the bus parked at the time?

    This can't possibly be true

    It kind of makes sense. The less marginalised women feel on a societal level (e.g. pay gap), the less concerned they will be about more Ďminorí sexism (e.g. wolf whistles). And the fewer women will identify as feminist as thereís less requirement for social activism.

    Thatís just my initial take. Itís very interesting as a case study.

    Misleading title though? The "In the world" bit...They polled 23 countries...

    Yeah I'm probably going to say Iran has less feminists in it than Denmark.

    This is where I'm at. There are some very terrible countries out there when it comes to gender equality. Certainly worse than a wealthy Western European democracy.

    Except the article is saying that Denmark has less feminists because it has better gender equality.

    I think a few people are misinterpreting the headline.

    Not really. The headline is clickbait bollocks considering only 23 countries were polled.

    True, that headline is a bit bizarre and misleading. The actual text says one of the least feminist nations in the developed world. Why not use Germany as the case study then?

    Seems like an image thing.

    If they were asked: do you support equal rights and participation in society for women? I presume the number would have been different.
