Talking of which, did you see Laurie Penny making an arse of herself of Twitter yesterday by suggesting that asian women are short and then being properly Twitch-trialled into abject apology for it? Hilarious, it was.
It was brilliant. She tweeted something about wanting to source clothes because she's a short-arse and asked where short Asian women got their clothes in the UK. Cue thousands of lefties sniffing blood and castigating her for reinforcing negative stereotypes of Asian women. She was reduced to mea culpa-ing massively, claiming she had to work on her white privilege and claiming her thoughtlessness was down to tweeting when she was hungry ( ).
Naturally, these being lefties, no-one at any stage pointed out the salient fact that - on average - asian women are actually relatively short.
