Yesterday was International Woman Day, and whilst I think it’s an admirable thing to celebrate, what with being a non-sexist person and dressing as a woman some of the time, it got me thinking about the way we, the inter-sexed if you like, operate as a community.

Fifty years. Hellfire, when I was growing up people over the age of forty were ancient. Now I’m literally on the verge of staring back down half a century you realise how misguided youth can be.
