Australia’s annual awards for public displays of sexism took place at NSW Parliament House last night. Here are the results. No real spoilers in telling you that Alan Jones won the gold Ernie this year for his wonderfully stimulating “women are destroying the joint” comment. He may be evading the rule that disqualifies someone for trying, but sometimes effort has to be acknowledged. The Ernies website is great fun to browse, with lots of details about the awards’ twenty-year history. Lots is also still going on, on the Destroy the Joint Facebook page.
