Tim Mathieson has pleaded with critics to stop bullying Julia because she’s a woman.
He says he can’t understand why some of her most harsh critics are women. You could have a gander at this Tim, it might give you a few clues.
Its been said to me a few times over the last few days that women in politics need to be harder, and meaner, and more brutal than men if they’re going to be accepted. Well, all I can say is who needs anybody more mean, hard and brutal than many men in politics are already? If women have to get more cruel to make the cut, what’s the point of them being there at all? And Gillard has certainly outdone any male politician in recent history with her policies on asylum seekers.
How bizarre, to call victimization for Ms Gillard, the woman who’s determined to send unaccompanied children to Malaysia!
Who’s the bully? Tell me again?
