Dame Edna Creator Attacks 'Ratbag' Caitlyn Jenner


Caitlyn Jenner Germaine Greer

Barry Humphries, who spent decades performing as fussy housewife Everage, has spoken out to support feminist writer Germaine Greer, who has likened Caitlyn's transformation to "self-mutilation".

"I agree with Germaine!" the comic says. "You're a mutilated man, that's all. Self-mutilation, what's all this carry on?

"Caitlyn Jenner, what a publicity-seeking ratbag. It's all given the stamp, not of respectability, but authenticity or something."

Germaine Greer Accuses Caitlyn Jenner Of Stealing The Spotlight From The Female Kardashians


Caitlyn Jenner Germaine Greer

Germaine Greer has refused to back down from her controversial comments regarding transgender women, accusing Caitlyn Jenner of upstaging the female members of the Kardashian family.

Greer, the Australian-born feminist and campaigner, had been heavily criticised for an interview she had given on BBC2’s ‘Newsnight’ program on Friday (October 23rd) in which she claimed that Glamour magazine’s decision to award Jenner, who underwent a gender transition operation earlier in 2015, with their Woman of the Year award was largely motivated by “misogyny”.

She also repeated her position on transsexual women, who have begun life as men before undergoing surgery and hormone treatment, are “not women”, saying that they do not “look like, sound like or behave like women.”

Greer Opens Up About Fellini Affair


Germaine Greer Federico Fellini

Famed feminist writer Germaine Greer once enjoyed an affair with legendary Italian moviemaker Federico Fellini.

The Female Eunuch author claims to have struck up a romance with La Dolce Vita director after he invited her to Italy in 1975 to audition for a role in his 1976 movie Fellini's Casanova.

Greer turned down the part, but subsequently enjoyed a brief relationship with the critically-acclaimed filmmaker, who was married to actress Giulietta Masina from 1943 until his death in 1993.

The author revealed the affair in an article written for Britain's Guardian newspaper, insisting she decided to divulge the details of the secret romance after seeing Oscar-nominated 2009 movie Nine, which was based on Fellini's semi-autobiographical 1963 film 8 1/2.

Greer Brands Diana 'Devious Moron'


Germaine Greer Diana Princess Of Wales

LATEST: Feminist icon Germaine Greer has continued her public assault on the memory of late British royal DIANA, Princess Of Wales, by branding her a "devious moron".
Last month (Jul07) the Female Eunuch author hinted the princess may have caused her own death "from (one) of her back-handed manipulations - it is said that she only went to Paris with her late lover Dodi Fayed in order to make heart surgeon Hasnat Khan jealous."
And, speaking at the Edinburgh International Book Festival on Saturday (18Aug07), Greer continued her verbal attack.
She said, "I have come to the conclusion that she was a devious moron.
"One of the things I have been puzzled by is why her whole life was such a mess. She made a mess of being Princess of Wales, but that is fine because the job is not do-able. It is an insane job and, in history, all but one of the Princesses of Wales have come to a sticky end - stickier than hers.
"I am also interested in why she couldn't manage life after being Her Royal Highness. It still puzzles me that she does that no-no thing: she sleeps with married men.
"...And this is the angel that people want to crown."
Diana was killed in a car crash in Paris on 31 August 1997.

Greer: 'Princess Di Caused Her Own Death'


Germaine Greer Diana Princess Of Wales

Feminist icon Germaine Greer has branded late British royal DIANA, Princess Of Wales "devious", suggesting she may have caused her own death.
The Female Eunuch author also claims the princess sexually tricked her lovers and says she was a "disturbingly neurotic" woman.
Greer says, "Her death may have resulted indirectly from (one) of her back-handed manipulations - it is said that she only went to Paris with her late lover Dodi Fayed in order to make heart surgeon Hasnat Khan jealous.
"Diana was never a fashion icon; she dressed to the same demotic standard of elegance as TV anchorwomen do, plus the inevitable hat. Diana's legacy is no more than endless column inches of adulation and speculation."
Diana was killed in a car crash in Paris on 31 August 1997.

Greer Criticises Rsc


Germaine Greer

Feminist icon Germaine Greer has blasted the Royal Shakespeare Company for failing to do enough to entice tourists.
The Female Eunuch author has criticised the company for not making Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of Shakespeare, tourist-friendly.
She recently went to a showing of King Lear there, starring a naked Sir Ian MCKellen, and was not impressed with what she saw.
She says, "I didn't go there to see Sir Ian MCKellen's tackle - but that was thrown into the bargain. I went there to see Shakespeare.
"But why was it that there is nowhere to eat and there is nowhere to sleep and you cannot find a parking space?
"Why is it the RSC has not done anything really significant with Stratford?"

Madonna Disappoints Greer


Madonna Germaine Greer

Superstar Madonna has been blasted by leading feminist author Germaine Greer for abandoning her pledge to front the "future of feminism".
Australian Greer criticises the LIKE A VIRGIN hitmaker for allowing religion, marriage and motherhood to overtake her desire to be a strong independent female role model.
Greer says, "She used to call herself the 'future of feminism'. Then she got DIY religion, married an Englishman and crumbled before our eyes. She started telling us that all she wanted to be was a good wife and mother, even though she worked out strenuously every day that she was honed to breaking point."
Greer also takes offence to the star's extravagant stage shows - in particular the Confessions tour which saw Madonna descend onto the stage on a cross made of disco-mirror.
She adds, "Madonna's massive cross was supposed to be covered with diamonds and Swarovski crystals, which seems a bit excessive, especially as behind were projected images of African Aids orphans."
