Tasmanian Liberal Senator David Bushby Meows«»Penny Wong, Australia's Minister for Climate Change and Water, was interrupted during a discussion with Tasmanian Liberal Senator David Bushby when he meowed at her.
Yes. Meowed. As if to indicate a "catfight" taking place.
Wong correctly pushed back at Bushby, calling him out on the double standard of meowing only when a woman stands her ground and argues her case, calling it "schoolyard politics." But it's not even just that Bushby's being juvenile and inappropriate (though he is.) This isn't even the correct use of the "meow"/catfight stereotype. That's about when TWO WOMEN are fighting. If you want to be sexist towards a woman because she's being argumentative with a man, that's a whole different (and regrettably extensive) family of insults. If you want to be a backwards neanderthal, at least get your put-downs right.l< << PREV 1 of 9 NEXT >>
