The right to interrupt

From July 1, a record number of sixty-four women, almost one in three, will occupy seats in the Australian Parliament, an increase from six of 188 "at the height of the feminist revolution", writes Paul Sheehan in the Sydney Morning Herald.

"The feminisation of Parliament, however, will not be what the middle-class, white-bread feminists envisaged in the 1970s: it will not create a governance of People Like Us."

"Rather, the inevitable ascendance of women will reflect the complexity of women."

Sixty-four women, while guessing what might be on the minds of their male constituents, have earned the right to interrupt the majority of men in Parliament with a complexity of women's views, confusing and diminishing the male voice while contributing no alternative women's voice of their own.

Should women achieve a majority, male members, while guessing what might be on the minds of their female constituents, will earn the right to interrupt the majority of women, confusing and diminishing the female voice while contributing no men's voice of their own.

Is it any wonder with such a deliberate diminution of intelligence from a Parliament in denial of women's and men's minds, that the nation is governed by a Coalition of serial child torturers who currently hold seventy-four children in immigration prisons, including a deeply disturbed three year old girl born into custody who "is listless, will not play with other children and wants only constant nursing by her mother"?
