Caitlin, our lovely lady, who didn't turn up for the debate, but am not sure she would have handled the heat, managed to turn feminism into an upbeat sounding word that you can shout out proudly. Go on girl. But was it all just feminism lite? Quite a few of the crew felt that she could have at times gone a bit deeper than just 'I hate Katie Price. She's a cheap slag.' Because let's face it, that has never been an argument. Unless you're down the William IV in Chigwell. However, there were still enough bits of the book that were written wonderfully enough for people to find it hard to put down, to have the occasional LOL (thanks Bruce) moment and to even become emotional (in particular her honest account of her abortion). Vajazzling, of course, was discussed in great detail thanks to Caitlin, with all confessing to how much or how little they groomed, and Bruce admitting to having a had a Eureka moment at Bestival 2008, where he realised there was a business, quite a substantial one, in fanny grooming. Moundation was going to be the brand name. If only he'd gone with his Dragon's Den intuition... But pudenda jokes aside, Caitlin's writing, some felt, was at times a bit hammy, with it's here it comes, here it comes, here comes the gag. Boom. Structure. Are you laughing? Are you? Cos I've got the cherry on top gag right after if you're ready for it. And even if you're not. But in general, all enjoyed it enough to whizz through it. Some of the boys wishing they had whizzed or jizzed through it in their younger years, so they wouldn't have spent so much time walking around with a big old question mark wondering: How exactly does this species funtion?
Let's talk about The Tree of Life now. It's really quite similar to marmite. Isn't it? Except perhaps that more people hate the Tree of Life? Let's vote.
