From an interview in The Guardian, where Westwood is asked about her elder son’s career in pornography:
What does she make of his career choice? “It’s such a cliche, that pin-up styling,” she says. “I think it’s boring because of that. Otherwise, I think it’s fine. But I think he should make the women look more glamorous, more interesting. But then it probably wouldn’t be porn if the women looked too strong.”
Maybe it offends her feminist principles, I suggest. “Oh no, I’m anti-feminist,” she says. “They don’t see the wood for the trees and everything has to be viewed from this feminist point of view. I know women have suffered and I think it’s great that people stand up for women’s rights but the problem with feminists is that they somehow consider women to be superior beings. And in the end, they just want to be men anyway. They want to do men’s work.” I try to ask her what she means by “men’s work” but she steamrollers on. “[Feminists] certainly underestimate the power women [have had] in influencing their children, or men.”
Where to start, eh? Do have a go at dissection and analysis if your weekend is lacking in other entertainments.
