@dfpiii Ah, I see your point, though my understanding is that she was never short of handy mechanics.

@dfpiii I’m not quite sure where you’re going with that, but it feels like it’s somewhere bad.

Still, drinking wine with Greer at 10am is a pleasant enough experience. Perfect before going on stage.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Once incredibly important, but now just annoying and an embarrassment.

Or maybe Richard Dawkins is the Germaine Greer of molecular biology.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

Oh none of this should detract from Greer’s important early work, but now she’s the Richard Dawkins of feminism. twitter.com/SnarkyPlatypus…

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

Having your arm gently stroked by Germaine Greer is a bit weird, though. Slightly creepy even.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

No one need ever feel ashamed to not be cool any more, or even particularly relevant. Indeed, you can roll on for decades.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

For some reason I am reassured by the fact that Germaine Greer is mostly just a fixture on the reality, panel, and quiz show circuit.
