UPDATE. Speaking of motherhood, Traceeee Hutchison appears to have changed her mind. Here she is last year:
As a childless product of The Female Eunuch generation, Germaine Greer’s influence on my life has been profound. The book predated me but its influence loomed large in the decisions women of my generation embraced.
I suspect many women of a certain age, who would happily swap their single, childless lives for twins and a partner to share the load in a heartbeat, would have observed the events of this week with a profound sense of sadness. Myself included.
Sounds like Greer has lost a fan.
UPDATE II. Some cultural advice from reader Hanyu:
By the way, Traceeeeee, the little girl’s name (to you, my dear) is Xue Qianxun; not Qian Xun as you write in your article (Xue is the family name). Strangers (like you) do not address Chinese by their given birth name; it’s either full name or – yes, you stupid cow – a nickname. Calling the little girl Pumpkin is no slight; in China she’d probably be called Little Xun, or Qianqian by her family and friends.
