So-called ‘feminists’ everywhere are having baby cows over a ‘sexist’ obituary in our Dear Leader Rupert’s News Corp news rags all around Australia. The text under the microscope is as follows:
COLLEEN McCullough, Australia’s bestselling author, was a charmer. Plain of feature, and certainly overweight, she was, nevertheless a woman of wit and warmth. In one interview, she said: “I’ve never been into clothes or figure and the interesting thing is I never had any trouble attracting men.”
Now, just forget for a moment that Ms. McCullough sold over 30 million copies of a book she wrote (and many other copies of other books that she wrote), and focus on the important issue: she was a woman, and therefore the rules of obituary writing are suspended, because, as Uncle Rupert has previously helped us all understand, women are simply incapable. Full stop. That is all we need to know. So, move on.
What is worth noting, all ye howling banshees, is that McCullough, perhaps unwittingly, wrote her own obituary when she effectively admitted that being ‘a fat slut with no sense of fashion’ was of more import than her success as an author.
So, everyone should just back off on the poor lowly scribes at News Corp’s death-message rooms, and give them the credit they deserve. They’re doing their jobs, and doing them as Mr. Murdoch told them to. THAT is the issue here: people doing what they’re told. And they should not be lambasted for that. After all, they are alive (or, at least, were), and they are (or, at least, were) men. Back off, bitches!
