Irony In Print11 March 2012
On Friday, the Sydney Morning Herald published a letter criticising the Lord Mayor of Sydney, Clover Moore, in which the writer suggested she should “stay at home and bake cakes”.
Did the writer of this letter not realise the irony of what he was doing when he put fingers to keyboard to write this letter the day before – Thursday 8th March, International Women’s Day?
It would appear we still have a long way to go.
And what’s the male equivalent of this? Has anyone suggested that Kevin Rudd, Barack Obama or David Campbell should “stay at home and put up shelves” or whatever it is men are supposed to be genetically programmed to do?
