Granny Greer

Sometimes I think of Germaine Greer as a favourite grandma who is maybe beginning to lose her marbles. She was totally awesome when she was younger and had a huge impact on the person I am today; we all love, admire and appreciate her contribution to the world. But sometimes she says things that aren't really okay.

But it's okay, because we love her anyway. She always going to be invited to the family picnics, we all want her there; she HAS to be there. She'll be given a cup of tea and slice of cake but she'll be popped in the corner and everyone will pretend they didn't quite hear the latest wacky thing she said. And we'll all go back to talking about what seems more relevant to us.

And then I realise I'm part of the problem Granny Greer is addressing in this article.

But how cool would it be to have a tea party with Germaine Greer.
