Stephen Fry: And Finally...

Now I don't care about you, but I can't get enough of Stephen Fry at the moment.
So apropos of nothing here he is talking about men and women and sex on the What About Me? video project from way back in December 2008.

"Women for some reason like to claim that they're as excited about the idea of sex as men are - but it's such manifest nonsense.
"I mean when do women hang around in parks hoping for casual encounters with men? They just don't. The only ones who do it are prostitutes who do it for money - which proves the very point. They have to be paid to do it.
"Whereas when it's just men they don't want to have a relationship, they just want to have sex. Now if women were like that we all know men would say 'Oh thank you!'
"And for some bizarre reason women don't want you to believe this; 'Oh, that's not true at all. I saw a waiter the other day with quite nice buttocks, made me quite juicy just thinking about it.'
"And a man would say; 'Only the other day!? What about every fucking minute of every hour of every day? You just don't get it! You don't get it - what it's like to have one of these in your bloody trousers! You have no idea what it's like.'
"And women don't - and lucky for them."

Oh, and Stephen Fry has finally written his response to the whole Hate Week hoo-ha on his blog.
It is called simply - and fittingly - 'Silliness'.
A summary or a quotation would be rather inappropriate here, so I hope you take the time to read it.
Some of it's good, some of it's rubbish, but there you go...

  1. Poor Stephen. He's so brilliant, but still not brilliant enough to avoid this kind of crap. The media is a monster and there is no safe way to have a relationship with it.
