It would appear that I am a misogynist. I know this may come as a surprise to some of you, but it is what it is.

This morning, Louise Mensch, MP for Corby and canny social media user, added some of the horrifying sexist abuse that passes for how to treat a woman on the internet to her favourites list so she could share it with the world.
