Here is a screenshot of the BBC’s headlines for the Asia section of their website today:
The BBC reports that India’s heatwave has already killed over 1000 people. As disturbing as this story is, the BBC isn’t finished. The real tragedy is not that 1100 people have lost their lives, but that Delhi’s women are suffering under the heatwave. Casualty lists are ultimately meaningless unless one can bifurcate them into the 2 demographics that matter: oppressors and oppressed (ie liberal pet classes).
Now that the BBC has informed us that women are suffering we can finally appreciate the gravity of the situation. I’d like to express my sincerest gratitude to the Ministry of Truth.
