Distaff di­chotomy

Daily Mail - - Freeview Primetime Planner -

THERE has been much crit­i­cism of the mostly fe­male characters in Tv’s Body­guard ( Mail). given that fe­males are only 50 per cent of the pop­u­la­tion, the grow­ing im­bal­ance in our so­ci­ety in favour of women is be­com­ing dis­turb­ing.

in ad­di­tion to sev­eral fe­male chief con­sta­bles and high-rank­ing po­lice of­fi­cers, Tv sports pre­sen­ters and news­read­ers, we also have a woman Prime Min­is­ter and leader of the green Party, lon­don chief fire of­fi­cer and Met Po­lice com­mis­sioner. i am all for equal­ity and women’s rights,

but isn’t this fem­i­ni­sa­tion of Bri­tish so­ci­ety go­ing a bit far?

GEORGE SKELLY, Wal­lasey, Mersey­side. NOT only is Body­guard over­whelmed with women, you hardly see a man on the morn­ing news on Sky or the BBC these days. It’s typ­i­cal of this coun­try ad­dress­ing an anom­aly by go­ing 180 de­grees in the other di­rec­tion.

JOHN BURKE, Hornchurch, Es­sex. AM I the only per­son who watched Body­guard and didn’t no­tice or care about the gen­der of the ac­tors? I just sat back and thor­oughly en­joyed a good TV drama.

LINDA WATT, Lee-on-the-So­lent, Hants.
