How anyone can listen to has believe Alan jones is beyond me considering he's failed liberal preselection 5 times, I think it's pretty obvious who he voted for.
Read the link I posted to Father for an insight into what happened to Gillard. It was a lot more than "a few slurs" and it is well documented and corroborated by many others- it's not a lie.

Comments such as these on a foxtel facebook page.
It is one thing to be sexist and call names. It is completely different spewing such hatred and wanting an elected PM assassinated or beheaded.

F, for every random person spewing gender based/inciting hate vile regarding Abbott on the internet there would be 10x + that Gillard faced some of which was from her peers. No I can't prove it, but I happen to read and have an understanding of gender inequalities in western society.
Using the slang words for genitals to describe people derogatory is not new but it's a different issue. Think about this for a moment, would you rather be called a d*ck or a c*unt? What is worse? A d*ck is used to describe someone as being a bit of an idiot whilst a c*nt is used to describe someone as being very nasty. Personally I don't like using either terms. Language is extraordinarily powerful.
I strongly suggest you take a course or read some books that give you an introduction to feminism - it might give you a better understanding of gender inequality and politics. I'm a strong believer in the adage - seek first to understand.
The difference is those are idiot nobodies on a Facebook page, or some b grade band, not Alan Jones who has a lot of sway in the community.
Did you ever see the hideous things written about Julia Gillard on fb?
