I can’t believe the male paranoia!
Catherine Delahunty, in a well reasoned Frogblog post criticising Paul Henry’s sexist comments on Stephanie Mills’ facial hair, used the term “scrotum shrivelling”.
And it got a reaction. Resident right-wing frogblog troll BluePeter commented:
As for “scrotum shrivelling”, I guess some Green MPs are on exactly the same level as Paul Henry.
And wannabe/hasbeen Green philu who loves animals but seems to hate almost everyone in the Green Party and everywhere else commented:

Hey guys, time to get the genital armour in place! Because I’m proposing that Catherine, who has considerable musical talent, form a band. I (who have no musical talent) will manage them. We’ll call them Catherine and the Scrotum Shrivellers. I like the name – a bit like Bobby Boris Picket and the Crypt Kickers from the 70s.
And the first single? Well, a remake of this, perhaps? But with the lyrics rewritten slightly, including the song title and chorus being revised to the title of this post:
Come on guys – get a grip. Your perceived feminist conspiracy ain’t really all that threatening. Or is it?
