Fuck Politeness

This is a revolution, not a public relations movement

Well you know, we all know it, yes, he said it.

Mr Abbott kindly *explained*to all the silly womenfolk out there, who know nothing about how stuff costs money (believing it to ‘grow on trees’ since all money is kindly ‘provided’ by Hubby Pig who goes to do Manly Important Work each day), all of whom stay home, pop out sprogs and adoringly iron ‘hubby’s’ shirts, that being their natural role in life:

What the housewives of Australia need to understand as they do the ironing, is that if they get it done commercially, it’s gonna go up in price, and their own power bills as they switch the iron on are gonna go up every year, I mean…

So essentially Abbott was ‘teaching his granny to suck eggs’ since most women are *indeed* aware that electricity costs money. All the while laying the boot in willy nilly: to Labor (you don’t CARE about the housewives of Australia) to women who work (work? Bwahahaha, toy jobs! Get back to domesticity chickabees!), to women who stay home to raise kids (the most challenging task you have is ironing), to women who iron (you’re idiots who don’t understand that electricity is a provision that costs your menfolk cold hard cash). Oh, and to men who iron (PUSSIES!!!)

What I want to know is if he was going to bang on and on about women and ironing and what we need to realise, if he was going to act like we’re morons and explain VERY IMPORTANT THINGS WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT IRONING is WHY he didn’t tell me that what I need to realise is if I iron in my underwear, and stop paying attention, there is a risk, no matter how tiny (and absurd) that I will in fact burn my tummy. And that. Will. HURT!
