When politicians lack balls

Room for women in politics means ‘unseating men’

Well, slap me with a haddock and call me Ishmael but isn't that a remarkable piece of logic?

Listen, you idiotic bimbos – electing anyone in politics is going to unseat someone unless it's the incumbent who is elected.

I don't understand women.  I know that's a cliché but in this case they leave me gobsmacked with their "female quota". Are they so dumb that they can't see that this is the worst kind of sexism?  Can they not see that this is condescension of the worst kind?  If I were a female in politics [which I grant is a small leap of faith] I would be disgusted and outraged at the thought that I would be put on the ticket purely on the basis of my genital arrangements and for no other reason; that I am there to fill a quota purely so the party can gain extra funding.  I'd smack them around the gills with my trusty handbag.

What these feminists can't seem to grasp is that equality means that gender makes no difference.  A candidate should be selected purely and solely on the basis of merit and for no other reason.  If they are going to go around screaming gender then they are simply promoting sexism and are doing themselves no favours at all.

Another small point is that women in Irish politics haven't done themselves any favours in the past.  Look at Mary "Mad Cow" Harney or Lucinda Bimbo Creighton?  Then there's that headbanger Hanafin over in Dun Laoire?  They are crap politicians not because they are female but because they are simply crap and no better than any of the crap men.

What I would like to know is where is the quota for red-heads?  Why aren't more left-handed people represented?  Who represents the overly tall or overly short?  When was the last time anyone did a headcount of politicians to see how many required spectacles?  I'm all for equality but as soon as someone starts on the male/female, man/woman bandwaggon I go cold.

Not that I care much anyway as I don't vote any more.

As far as I'm concerned, they're all cunts.

When politicians lack balls — 8 Comments

  1. Last year I spent three days in London (Never again – it's a terrible place).   Once I travelled by the Metro (Underground).   It was full, with many people having to stand.   The man next to me spoke to a heavily pregnant woman, asking, "Madam, are you a feminist who believes in equality between the sexes?".

    When she replied that she was, his response was a classic.   "In that case, Madam, you can remain standing and I shall remain sitting".

    • A perfect example.  They demand equality yet they want men to give up their seats or open doors for 'em.  They can't have it both ways.  I believe doing things impartially and will slam the door in anyone's face regardless of gender.  That's equality.

      • But Gallantry, the age-old value of a perfect gentleman, is still around, isn't it? Did you ever spread your jacket over a puddle on the roads of County Wicklow for herself to step safely over? I never did.

  2. Well said again, Grandad. No tokenism, because that's what quotas would amount to. If Sinn Fein or Fine Gael fielded a black, female and disabled Seventh Day Adventist candidate in the elections I wouldn't be interested in their symbolical minority status – I'd want to know what they intend to do about tree-hugging, after-hours drinking, the potholes, the rights of smokers, the rural bus services and the price of the pint before deciding not to vote for them.

  3. It's sad to realise that most folk and I'm not having a pop at those commenting here, still expect that the problems created by the elected and those they really answer to will be solved by the elected and those they answer to.

    The elected system is working perfectly well for the minority by suppressing the majority into compliance. Doesn't matter what land you live on if this system is in play then you are being controlled from cradle to grave.

  4. Can't be doing with all this 'positive discrimination' malarkey myself.  I'd be mortally insulted if I thought that was the only way I could be elected to a position of any sort!

    Never went in for the whole bra-burning scene myself, mind you nowadays it might improved my appearance..pulling all the wrinkles out of my face.
