Dear Fellow Feminists
It seems we must hang our heads in shame for we have failed, again. What have we failed this time, I hear you sigh/gnash/spit/expletive? We have failed the Prime Minister by not supporting her against the slings and arrows of an outrageous media who are commenting on her clothing and appearance and making a fuss about her being a woman, an unmarried woman, an unmarried woman without children, an unmarried woman without children who is in charge of a minority government who refuses to call another election when it is demanded by the people who want to be represented but who seem to have a poor grasp of our electoral system. I could go on but I think the point has been made repeatedly.
We have failed to turn every single woman on the planet into a feminist, such is our failure that some women at anti-(Labor) Government rallies are holding placards which are not nice about our (female) Prime Minister. How have we fallen so low? What on earth have we been doing? What else is there for feminists to be focussing on? Really, focus people focus!

All these links and more, from just this one feminist blog. Obviously there is more out there, but why bother doing research when you can spew out a few hundred words on why feminism has failed again? I mean all the free to air channels are run by notorious feminists, as are the morning TV shows* I don’t have pay TV so I can’t comment on that. How can we have so failed to get our message out there?
So really isn’t this just another iteration of where are the female political bloggers? Just another male blogger not bothering to do a search on google? Not looking at pro-Labor government rallies? Besides, why is this all the fault or responsibilities of feminists?
SotBO: Yes this is tongue in cheek, so tongue in cheek in fact I’m in danger of poking my tongue right through.
