…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger
Since that Gillard person in her infinite wisdom saw it fit to fan the flames of gender wars, and since the writing about Australia’s catastrophic deficit, catastrophic level of illegal immigration or catastrophic decline of public discourse is becoming boring, I turn to women, or rather to that minuscule, screeching minority, which the Gramsci trained media try to present as a majority.
In the Australian Broadcasting Commission Midday report on 21st June, 2013 some grey- short-cut-haired female, presumably an activist/academic of sorts, complained. I admit that as far as “their” ABC is concerned, I hear only a half and when the “expert” totted out is a female I hear even less because I can easily predict the other half. Yet I think I got the gist of her complaint – the women are getting a horrible deal. No, she was not talking about the Middle East or cliterectomy in Muslim ghettoes of Sydney, but about Australian Defence Force. As they say in the Australian bush to nubile Danish backpackers, “Toughen up, princess”. Sure, there is likely to be something what the feminists now call a “sexual harassment” in the military, to the same extent, or more likely less, than in trade unions, journalism, academia, judiciary or politics.
I wrote about the Left’s synchronised campaigns before, but it still amuses me that that day both US and Spanish media, and likely many others for all I know, became concerned with a sexual harassment in military. As if they all sang the hymns according to the numbers on the wall.
The public face of the Australian Labor Party has a thick, albeit cracking, make-up of female nincompoops, who, if they were not women, would not get there ever. Quota Queens Plibersek, Collins, Gillard, Wong, Malkin, Roxon, Lundy, Peris or Ellis naturally hate women who become successful because of their ability, and their even less competent sisters in the media concur. They are the true misogynists.
Just in case somebody thinks I am too harsh on those pathetic and unrepresentative specimens of womanhood – would anybody with an IQ higher than that of a retarded amoeba publicly bring up something so clearly and dramatically contradictory to the purpose of the message? Yet the First Female Prime Minister of Australia in her “blue ties” speech to the carefully picked claque waxed lyrical about other female Labor politicians in order to shore up her claim to the throne. The mind boggles; why mention the State Labor Premiers – Carmel Lawrence, Joan Kirner, Kristina Keneally and Anna Bligh who, every single one of them, proved to be amoral, incapable, economically clueless clowns.
And are women really disadvantaged? Definitely not in the Labor politics and the Labor/Green media. Elsewhere: “..forty percent of working wives now earn more than their husbands, and, by 2030, that number will probably rise to fifty percent. Women already make up more than half of college and university students”. Women live longer than men, yet feminists are not planning any active measures to lower the life span of women. Women are grossly under-represented in jails, but there is no drive to equality there. In other words, feministas do not want equality, they want power; power for themselves, not for women as such.
In the meantime those embittered harpies drive normal women to drink. Following are excerpts from the Wall Street Journal interview with the authoress Gabrielle Glaser (a woman):
“In Portland, Ore., where I lived for six years, I would watch most Sunday nights as a neighbor deposited two giant Merlot bottles in my recycling bin. Her house was a block away, and she had her own bin—but apparently mine seemed like a more discreet place to stash her empties. In New York’s Westchester County, where I had lived previously, women would pass around a flask at dreary school functions. Alcohol and motherhood were intertwined, so much so that after I had my third daughter in the anxious autumn after 9/11, I received bottle after bottle of wine as baby gifts.
…Indeed, more women are drinking now than at any time in recent history, according to health surveys. In the nine years between 1998 and 2007, the number of women arrested for drunken driving rose 30%, while male arrests dropped more than 7%. Between 1999 and 2008, the number of young women who showed up in emergency rooms for being dangerously intoxicated rose by 52%. The rate for young men, though higher, rose just 9%.
These numbers are not driven solely by young women living it up on spring break. A recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study of binge drinking—that is, having four or more drinks for women or five or more for men within two hours—revealed a surprising statistic. While the greatest number, 24%, of binge-drinking women are college-age, 10% of women between 45 and 64 said they binge drink—and so did 3% of women older than 65. The college-age binge drinkers and the senior binge drinkers overdid it with a similar frequency, about three times a month.
…Gallup pollsters have repeatedly found that the more educated and well off a woman is, the more likely she is to imbibe. White women are more likely to drink than women of other racial backgrounds, but in the past few decades the percentage of women who classify themselves as regular drinkers has risen across the board. An analysis of the drinking habits of 85,000 Americans in 2002 found that 47% of white women reported being regular drinkers, up from 37% in 1992. The percentage of black women who said they drank regularly rose from 21% to 30%, and the percentage of Hispanic women who said the same grew from 24% to 32%.
