Coren writes:

On #everydaysexism: 'I think it's a shame that the vast majority of stories are about men making lewd comments in the street. I don't think that counts as sexism; I just think it's bad manners.'

On equality: 'Sexual equality is about having the same rights, not the end of lust.

On gender discrimination: 'This is my small and relatively lucky version of the sharp end of sexism: when people think - as they still boringly, exasperatingly do - that you are less competent, less able or less mentally bright and strong because of your gender.'
