This is a letter published in the BMJ before I was born, nearly 60 years ago. It is interesting that some themes still persist today: the evidence for a biological cause was as contested then as it is now; arguments often put forward by certain radical feminists these days are not new, and cannot even be attributed to them originally. These arguments were developed by conservative men well-established within the medical fraternity itself! This is the patriarchy speaking here.
Eat your hearts out:
Read this and weep, Nicky and friends. Only last week you criticised me for only having outdated information – yet in this piece of history is all the evidence that is necessary to show that you are the one who is outdated – regurgitating these archaic patriarchal views from the 1950’s. LOL!
