Worrying attitudes to women

There are some really strange people with really strange attitudes out there. I’m not sure who’s stranger in this case: Maureen Dowd, the author of Are Men Necessary?, or the weird men who left comments on her Amazon.com reviews page. Actually, I’m pretty sure it’s the men, but either way, I think everyone needs to take a chill pill.


  • I’m Rob Buckley, a journalist who writes for UK media magazines that most people have never heard of although you might have heard me on the podcast Lockdown Land or Radio 5 Live’s Saturday Edition or Afternoon Edition. I’ve edited Dreamwatch, Sprocket and Cambridge Film Festival Daily; been technical editor for TV producers magazine Televisual; reviewed films for the short-lived newspaper Cambridge Insider; written features for the even shorter-lived newspaper Soho Independent; and was regularly sarcastic about television on the blink-and-you-missed-it “web site for urban hedonists” The Tribe. Since going freelance, I've contributed to the likes of Broadcast, Total Content + Media, Action TV, Off The Telly, Action Network, TV Scoop and The Custard TV.
