Not a sexist cartoon

The Hobart Mercury 8 February 2012

“Has some of the criticism of Julia Gillard’s Prime Ministership been sexist?” You may ask, to which I would reply “Is a woman’s place barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen?”

Now that the internet has democratised rabid abuse, the sexist component of the torrent of maniacal rage directed the PM’s way actually seems quite quaint. Nonetheless, people need to understand that the only form of sex-based discrimination that will be officially tolerated in this country is apparently against same-sex couples who wish to get married. Anything else is bang out of order.

Now play nice.

  1. You can’t believe anything Tony Abbott says unless it’s written down (his words), but Julia has shown you can’t believe anything she says even when it is in writing (Wilkie’s words).

  2. I believe much of the criticism comes from the hired guns such as Bolt. Australians can only take so much before they turn on the commentators and their outlandish behaviour.

  3. It is a sad time in Australian politics, it is a time made for someone to step forward as Gough Whitlam did and grab the debate by the scruff of the neck and get on with it. Sadly no such person is visible on either side of the house.
