Men Behaving Appallingly

Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right, but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world

United Nations

Here we are in the 21st Century and yet inexcusable sexism floats around on a daily basis, spewed from the mouths of homines who are old enough and ugly enough to know better.

Sexism in the work place – APPALLING

Us women are still putting up with boring sexist crap in the work place, the banter and the inappropriate touching but, when it is headline news and being liberally doled out in the corridors of power, it really is very worrying.

In the hallowed halls of Westminster … from the chauvinist lips of the Chancellor of the Exchequer …

‘Even a woman can drive a train …’ Philip Hammond – APPALLING

Oh Mr Hammond … hang your head in shame … at least Mrs May rose in defense of her own kind, as well as finding her sense of humour, when she piped up …

“Chancellor, I am going to take your shovel away from you.”  The funniest thing I have heard her say since ‘Brexit means Brexit.’

And from Washington DC … sexist comments and President Trump go hand in hand, along with his protracted hand shakes … the latest gaffe … that I am aware of … ‘Madame Macron … you are in such good shape.’

It’s everywhere and even on my home turf … the CEO of Digital Jersey, Tony Moretta, has thrown all his Dr Who toys out of his pram because our beloved timelord is returning as a woman.  Congratulations Jodie Whittaker by the way.

Jodie Whittaker as Dr Who … who will save all civilisations from appalling sexism – APPEALING

Guys … you may be stronger than us physically but your outdated sexist jibes are just pathetic and we are sick of them …  just remember …

Anything you can do,

We can do better

  We can do anything

                                                              Better than you.

  1. Personally, I don’t think Irving would mind you putting his lyrics to such good use. By the way, I’m sick of it too, so if you need a bullhorn, I have one. Obviously, we women need to be louder still.

    1. Hi Sparkyjen … it’s good to know that you and I are on the same wavelength and banging the same drum or in this case shouting from the same bullhorn. I do love my quotes and this one by Gloria Steinen ranks amongst the greats … “One day an army of gray-haired women may quietly take over the Earth!”
