Piers Morgan is a bloviating jackass. I attempted to cease overlaying him final 12 months, though some Piers-stories ended up creeping into my protection simply because he’s such an incessant troll, to not point out a racist and a misogynist. Piers determined to mock the very concept of the Ladies’s March over the weekend, making trollish tweets about how he’s planning a Males’s March (EVERY DAY IS A MEN’S MARCH) to “protest the creeping international emasculation of my gender by rabid feminists.” He acquired ripped aside on-line, which is what he needed. However right now, Ewan McGregor was supposed to look on Good Morning Britain (the present Piers co-hosts) and Ewan refused to do the interview due to Piers’ feedback.
To start with, no, we don’t must “debate.” I’m a feminist and I’m not going to “debate” with a knuckle-dragging misogynist as a result of that units up the false perspective that each side are “equal,” or each side are making legitimate factors. Ladies’s rights are usually not a debate. A lady’s company over her physique and her life are usually not a part of some point-counterpoint dialogue. Which might be how Ewan felt, judging from this tweet-exchange with Piers.

After that, Piers devoted no fewer than twenty tweets to bashing Ewan, and he additionally wrote a bitchy article for the Each day Mail – learn it right here should you like.
So, Piers acquired what he needed. He acquired to indicate off his salty, butthurt male fragility and Ewan McGregor continues to face up for the women.
I am with you in spirit right now girls of the world. My daughters are marching. I am so proud to see this extraordinary energy.
