Actually the funniest thing I’ve read all day, from a comment left on the above link. Oh Steve!
Feminists are a fringe movement of misfits.
Intelligent women have realized their life is worse now that feminism has forced them to compete on an equal footing to men.
I have never had a partner who wanted to even go to work let alone be ‘equal’ to me.
I do all the crappy/dirty jobs that I believe a woman should not have to do as those jobs are a mans work.
Why would a woman want to unblock a clogged toilet/drain??? To prove equality????
No - they will say themselves - ‘That is a mans job.’
So maybe feminists should talk to the ‘girly girls/real women’ that are still the majority and ask what they really want.
I have never had a partner who even wanted to work.
They have all wanted to stay at home, have kids and have the easy life. (Yes looking after kids full time is easier than full time work - especially when they start school and you get 6-7 extra hours to do your own thing every day)
It is funny that most men know what women really want better than feminists do.”
This is the Minister for the Environment, Greg Hunt, speaking in Parliament’s Question Time. Tony Abbott appointed one woman to his Cabinet - Julie Bishop, sitting on the left there.
But this is the television view you get whenever a member of the Guv’ment stands up to speak in Parliament. Three blonde women, placed prominently to provide the illusion that the Liberal party is overflowing with female representation.
Tony Abbott: He’s a Feminist, don’t you know.
UPDATE: When Tony Abbott’s speaking, he still manages to stand in front of one of them and block her entirely from the picture.
I found this email very amusing, from a Mr Graham Brown. I guess he didn’t like my piece on all the things in addition to chivalry that feminism has MURDERED:
"You are just a stupid person. Why? Cause you dunno….. (your words)Growing up in the 1960’s I was told to be polite to men and extra to women.I still open doors and don’t swear around women. By the look of you, you would have been hanging in your dads ball bag in the sixties.
Anyway, try and be balanced and accurate in your writing. If your last words are meant to be funny, they are not. For men like myself, you are being rude and showing little respect for older generation. Opening doors is just being polite. It doesn’t make me feel like a woman…. so you are incorrect to say that ‘maybe it’s because it makes them feel like women… I dunno’. Nah, that’s not funny.Finally, did you hear the joke about the pregnant woman on the bus….. when she asked for a seat this bloke said to her, oh love have a miscarriage then you will not need a seat. Not funny and neither is your article.You suck and so does the SMHG. Brown LL.BSydney”
