Insert the word white where man is, and aboriginal/black/chinese where woman is, and that's racist... so how it is not sexist?
If you don't find him offensive that's ok, but I do.
And yes, you do have the right to be offended. But, you cannot claim that this one statement (it was actually a question) highlights that he "hates women". Especially, if you have not heard the question in context.
Do you honestly think that he "hates women"?
Father - perhaps you don't find his comments offensive, because you are not a woman!? Just sayin'.......that's all
I have now watch the entire speech.
It was quite well delivered, but I think it was wrong of her to support the Speaker with his more obvious sexism. It cried of hypocrisy and double standards. I think it showed a lack of judgement. This was made even more clear by Slipper himself agreeing with Abbott's arguments and standing himself down. Well delivered. But she got it wrong. Very wrong.
Julia should have sacked and not backed slipper.
She showed true balls in her speech to Abbot.
Sure Abbot is old fashioned but he's not that dangerous...sure he comes out with some gaffes but thats because he's a buffoon.
