but I clicked onto Sam de Brito’s blog anyway because I was bored. I skipped the whole ‘fat bottom’ thing and went to look at the post with the piccy of Julia Gillard (our deputy PM for our OS readers). Apparently Sam has had some great female bosses. Lucky him. However, the venom about women in charge really starts to come out in the comments. I won’t repeat them here, I’m sure you’ve heard them all before. I agree with Fuck Politeness that SDB doesn’t quite get the whole feminist ally thing. At all. BTW if you haven’t read FP’s post on the Sams I recommend you do. So now I’m annoyed that a supposedly ‘I love women (except ones with fat bums)’ guy lets the haters go mad in comments with nary a whimper. Not just that, it’s lazy. Rather than put forward an argument about the good things about women as bosses, he just throws together a few thoughts then lets the negative comments about women fly. Serves me right for reading his crap.
So what’s annoying you today?
[Edited to add]
I am also mighty annoyed at Telstra for putting a $6 monthly charge on my telephone bill for a service that I have not signed up for. I have complained twice and had the charge removed, but last night while falling asleep it occurred to me to check previous bills and lo and behold they have been charging this since at least August 08. The online bills don’t go any further back than that, I’m currently discussing the issue with Valerie. We’ll see how it goes. So far they owe me $24, possibly quite a lot more.
