Equality My Arse

I wish to pass comment on another bout of complete stupidity and total bollocks ejected from the maw of the Beast Politic. In this instance, the mouthpiece is Lynne Featherstone, the Liberal Democrat Equalities Minister for the Coalition Government, who has stated that she blames men for the 'mess the world is in'.

Verbatim:

'In terms of decision making I have always gone out and advocated to women you must get your hands on levers, you must get hold of power, you must be where decisions are made... Because otherwise if you leave it to - I'm going to say men in this case because that's the way the world has worked - you get terrible decisions. Look at the mess the world is in, and look who has been in charge. I leave it there.'

I have no problem with equality. I have no problem with equal pay, equal rights, feminism, all the rest of it. Equality is something that we all deserve. And because of that, I despise discrimination, in all its forms, especially when people dress it up as something else. It smacks of rank hypocrisy, and misandry (man-hating) dressed up as feminism is one of the most insidious examples of it.

To people who conform to such views, such a statement is completely obvious, and totally acceptable. Of course men are to blame. Those evil, misogynistic pigs. They're all bastards. Cut their balls off. Or if that doesn't work, just make them fucking manicure themselves, emasculate them totally, convert them into walking, talking Ken dolls.

But of course, it is totally improper for me to say that women can't be trusted to run things. That they're better off in the kitchen. That the only things they're good for is cooking and fucking - they'd screw anything more complicated than that up. Such comments are unacceptable.

So why is it OK to piss on men, but not on women?

Allow me to highlight it another way, by changing only two words in Featherstone's contemptuous statement:

'In terms of decision making I have always gone out and advocated to Germans you must get your hands on levers, you must get hold of power, you must be where decisions are made... Because otherwise if you leave it to - I'm going to say Jews in this case because that's the way the world has worked - you get terrible decisions. Look at the mess the world is in, and look who has been in charge. I leave it there.'

Ah, yes. All of a sudden, the despicable prejudice becomes apparent, doesn't it?

Gives real feminists a bad name.

So, Lynne Featherstone, take your fucking penis-envy, man-hating, fascist agenda, and choke on it. Preferably after boiling your head in the foetid bottom-juice which has just spewed from the hole in your face.
