The Return of Kings is another of the high-profile groups for male pick-up artists we’ve heard about in the last couple of years, which is planning meet ups of its Australian members all throughout this week.

Australian second wave feminist Germaine Greer has cancelled an upcoming talk at Cardiff University, after a petition was launched to ban her, due to her transphobic comments and attitudes.

I spoke to Greens spokesperson for gender identity and mental health Senator Janet Rice about this topic, and the effect prominent people like Germaine Greer can have on the gender diverse community.
