Fuck Politeness

This is a revolution, not a public relations movement

Well I missed the apparent broohaha over Michelle Obama and her exposure of arms in the last little while.

I did *not* miss the publication of the photos that were alleged to be of Pauline Hanson.

This article talks about both.

It’s looking at classism in politics, particularly as related to women, and more generally about attitudes to women and the bodies/looks of women in politics.

I wish we could start having these kinds of conversations in more productive and sensible ways.

So it’s nice to see one article published in a mainstream newspaper that actually says “And who cares if they HAD been real”.
