Sexist comment

Saturday’s Scotsman contained a review by David Sexton of a new biography of the Prince of Wales. In it, David Sexton commented that the book’s author, Catherine Mayer, ‘looks strikingly good for her age’. Such a comment is patronising, sexist and very, very rude. It would not have been made had the author been male.
