    Surely someone is going to call out this misogyny when they see it?

  2. steve

    what is it about young women and mindless fanaticism?

  3. pete m

    I would call her a cnut but some things are just a given.

  4. Gab

    I would call Julia Gillard a cnut but she doesn’t have the depth or warmth, as many can attest.

    Howzat?

  5. calli

    Well, she did try hard…

    A sheet of MDF rather than the usual flaccid cardboard
    Correct use of the apostrophe
    Message clearly articulated
    An attempt at humour

    On the other hand…would I employ her? Possibly…when she grows up.

  6. Gab

    Just as well no one called Abbott a witch!

  7. Nic

    Perhaps if she’d called him a gay cnut. She’d be suspended from the march for two weeks / sarc

  8. Alfonso

    She needs to be a bit careful about the provocation.
    100,000 0f me move their capital and business offshore …..her taxpayer funded lifestyle is f****d.

  9. Bruce of Newcastle

    That’s vaginally knitting the kangaroo is what that is.

  10. crazydude

    And all my friends in Melbourne seem to agree with the message at least. Going by their facebook posts. I really am a loner :( But then again, I seriously want to pack all those friends in a room and give them a spray. That would just make me as bad as the girl in picture.

  11. David

    On the other hand…would I employ her? Possibly…when she grows up

    Never as long as I was in business would I employ her. I’ll tolerate somebody having a different opinion, political or religious [almost] point of view. One expression like that and she’d be out the door with termination pay so quick she would not have time to draw breath.

    She may not have an acceptable standard of behaviour but my clients expect a higher standard than what this foul mouthed little tart has. I didn’t tolerate that sort of language when I was in uniform and I don’t in business.

  12. Anne

    The increasingly common use of this word is disturbing to me.

    She’s pretty much mapped out her future. The internet is forever.

    Her parents must be beaming with pride.

  13. Nic

    Her parents ? Her mother and her brother .

  14. calli

    David, I would never hold the foolishness of yoof against anyone. People do things that, in later years, they are heartily ashamed.

    I think uni is wasted on her, as I all too subtly indicated. Her fabrication skills would suit her to a trade. And she would be immune to site sledging as well.

  15. CatAttack

    And a look at the Fcukwits with the Occupy masks. Those pretentious wankers shit me to tears. Truly! Real revolutionaries fighting the good fight man. How much of a colossal tosspot would you have to be?

  16. Delta A

    What’s with the masks anyway? Seems they’re saying, “I believe in this so strongly that I even got out of bed to protest… but I don’t want anyone recognising me.”

  17. calli

    The masks are the ‘protest’ thing that has changed since the good old/bad old days of student protests. It’s sinister…and cowardly. If you have a view, speak out loud and clear and show your face.

  18. crocodile

    I’d call him ankles.

  19. C.L.

    LOL.

    The traditional astro-turf marches against a Liberal government begin.

    They all slept through 4000 deaths at sea and 200 incinerated houses.

    And addressing the crowd today (as seen on ABC news) was none other than the Quiggler!

  20. CatAttack

    Delta Because they’re revolutionaries in fear of their lives!!! These knobs would be crying like babies in 2 minutes if really confronted with real Resistance in countries like North Korea, the Congo or any number of other miserable shit holes.

  21. Delta A

    Calli at 7.42pm.

    Exactly. Sinister and cowardly. What a bunch of betas.

  22. Anne

    CL, they did the ‘Occupy’ protests which were puzzling to me because they were left wing protestors living under the most left wing Government we’ve ever had and they didn’t seem to have any message or demand to power.

    …excepting perhaps, rich people are evil.

  23. stackja

    Misandry is all right it seems.

  24. Delta A

    Cat Attack, you’ve raised a point often discussed in our household. While I believe there are many competent, worthwhile young men these days, I’ve also met far too many who would fall to pieces under any stressful situation. Maybe a year or two of national service while they’re waiting to go on the dole?

  25. Baldrick

    To be honest, I’ve read worse on this blog.

  26. Sinclair Davidson

    To be honest, I’ve read worse on this blog.

    I hope not – I’ve worked hard to stamp out the rampant use of the c-bomb that existed here since I took over.

  27. Baldrick

    With all due respect Doom Lord …. not so much the ‘c’ bomb, but the sentiment.

  28. john constantine

    alan moore’s graphic novel ‘v for vendetta’ created in the early eighties. had the guy fawkes mask wearing activist ‘v’

    “v” has a vast literary, cultural and philosophical intellect, and wages explosive and inflamed war on the pedophile priests and fascist white supremicists of thatchers britain.

    v for vendetta was part of the lefts cultural war to bring down mrs thatcher at the 1983 election. the little bastards have learned a fair bit since then.

    the guy fawkes masks worn by the occupy anarchists are a non verbal reminder of the gunpowder plot, and that the cultural icon “v’ did get to burn out and blow up a shitload of tories.

  29. Big Jim

    I was squeamish about the c word until I was called a BFC by a nice mum in a Holden at the local Westfield. She was under the misapprehension that I stole her spot.

    That’s rich, I said, coming from you. But I kept my distance, sensing the McPherson struts were close to failure as it was. Quarter of a ton is a large load. She wasn’t THAT big. She had her twelve year old girl with her.

    Anyway, I gave her my version of terra nullius to no avail. I drank my espresso from Gloria Jean’s to a renewed chorus of Handel’s ‘obesiusus maximus vaginicus’. Now in my little circle we call each other big fat cunts at the slightest infraction.

  30. So, so tired.

    So, so predictable.

    So, so unoriginal.

    If she’d been clever enough to think it up all by herself, then that would be something.

    But she wasn’t.

  31. calli

    Aw, Philippa. I should’ve known she’d copied it. Silly me.

    Looks like she’s only qualified for a lifelong sentence with my stonemasons.

  32. Delta A

    Wow! Philippa, where do you find this stuff? And how do you manage to drag it out so promptly?

  33. .

    You don’t get warmth or depth from a bloke with that haircut, princess.

  34. john constantine

    i reckon i heard it on an old billy connelly tape decades ago.

  35. DrBeauGan

    I don’t suffer from linguistic taboos so I thought it only mildly amusing. But the hypocrisy of the screams of horror at someone callling julia a witch disgusts me. And as Philippa points out, it isn’t even original.

  36. Beef

    A night with her would be like throwing a sausage up a hallway.

  37. egg_

    A sheet of MDF rather than the usual flaccid cardboard.

    At least, she made a suitable erection.

  38. the guy fawkes masks worn by the occupy anarchists are

    … often bought online from Amazon.com (the world’s largest online retailer) to the great profit of it and the the owner of the image’s rights, Time Warner (the world’s second largest media and entertainment conglomerate).

    You hit the nail on the head, Baldrick. Davidson et al just don’t get it, do they?

    You are amongst friends here, squire.

  41. Grigory M

    I’ve worked hard to stamp out the rampant use of the c-bomb

    Regrettably, Sinc – your efforts have not been wholly successful – as demonstrated by Big Jim’s unchallenged used of the c-bomb (plural) at #1310249, posted on May 18, 2014 at 8:15 pm above. Or in the open and uninhibited use of its two-letters-transposed variation whenever and wherever folks on the Cat choose. Or in the less than subtle but mildy humorous “Sound of Music” variation employed in the last few days on the Open Forum. I confess to being involved in the latter occurence – but I never use the c-bomb itself and have many times expressed my disregard for the use of its most common variation.

  42. .

    This sums up the mental state of most of these rent a mob protesters, thanks to King Missile:

  44. Sinclair Davidson

    Grigory M – that comment did get held up for moderation and I did approve it. Given the thread and given that it actually made a contribution to the discussion it got through. On the other hand, the term being used gratuitously as a term of abuse has disappeared.

  45. Gab

    The place has been invaded by a bunch of cardigan-wearing, po-faced, tut-tutting SFBs.

  46. Wow! Philippa, where do you find this stuff? And how do you manage to drag it out so promptly?

    It’s a gift.

    Actually, it’s called Google. Now there’s a search term I never thought I’d be entering …

    The place has been invaded by a bunch of cardigan-wearing, po-faced, tut-tutting SFBs.

    Wash your mouth out, young lady. That’s the S-word, and that’s NEVER permitted …

  47. Gab

  52. Sinclair Davidson

    All yours dear – I’m off to bed. Early start tomorrow and I’ve got the sniffles starting up.

  53. Gab

    Awww, hope you don’t get ill, Sinclair. Drink lots of water followed by lots more whisky. That’ll fix ya.

  54. Fisky

    And addressing the crowd today (as seen on ABC news) was none other than the Quiggler!

    Bwahahahaha no way! I bet he was in a red beret thumping the lecturn and shouting “There will never be another Liberal government in my lifetime!!!”

  55. calli

    Next time the Doomlord is interviewed in the ebil MSM, I want to see him in a nice cardie. Forget the snazzy silk ties and Italian wool suits. It’s fairisle…or nothing…

  56. calli

    Oooo….horrid….I just re read wot I typed.

    Time to turn I think.

    Old Queensland remedy for malaria. Hang your hat at the end of your bed. Take to that bed. Drink Bundie Rum until you see two hats.

    It may not cure the malaria, but the resulting hangover will make malaria seem nothing by comparison.

  63. Rob MW

    I don’t think there is a cure for being analysed as a ‘c#nt’ and that’s why I’m all in favour of Tony’s $7.00 medicare co-payment to establish the medical research fund. On the other hand that poor unfortunate ‘Lady’ holding the sign will undoubtingly call it a slush-fund.

  64. Clam Chowdah

    Sorry for the digression.

    G’day Calli,

    She looks old enough to know better. Perhaps I’m old fashioned but having to resort to that sort of language shows a lack of command of a language which is rich in invective without being coarse and a lack of self control and esteem.

    She’s probably a yarts stoont anyway and so unlikely to seek a career in something productive like engineering.

    Kol tuv

  69. calli

    All good, David. She is now relegated to an indeterminate sentence on the rock pile with my stone masons.

    Her crime…plagiarism.

  73. Rabz

    Yes, Annie – double the pissed offness!

  74. Peewhit

    David, yoof is not like when I was young now. We were expected to be serious from the age of 20 on and most of us were married about the age of 22 before we became fixed in our ideas. Now for many Yoof extends into the 30s, and then they expect that the community will help them have the children they would have easily had when younger. And yes we are out of balance in employment with too few lifters and too many arts student leaners.

  75. Rob MW

    Clam Chowdah – “Did you previously operate a blog? That’s better Engrish innit…”

    Clam: – umm…….no…….why?

  76. Big Jim

    “as demonstrated by Big Jim’s unchallenged used of the c-bomb (plural) at #1310249, posted on May 18, 2014 at 8:15 pm above. ”

    It looks like evidence being gathered for the New Regime. Still, if they do me for that, it would be like Al Capone going down for tax evasion.

    Seriously, It’s only a word. You would need to be a hard fe mo to make it a ‘gender’ issue, since I’m not aware of any dick words that are off limits. In Elizabethan England people went on about ‘cunnies’ all the time. yet w e’ve arbitrarily chosen to make this one THE BIG ONE. Could it be that people have a deep seated need for something sacred – the god shaped, um, hole, and all that?

  77. David

    Her crime…plagiarism

    Calli seeing she is not even smart enough to come up with something original and as being a stone mason would actually require intelligence, effort and skill it would probably be a bit much for her.

  78. Clam Chowdah

    There was a chap, Rob, something, who had a blog a few years back. Lots of stuff on Palestine, but I can’t recall the name and Googling “Rob” with “Palestine” doesn’t help.

    Carry on.

  79. I heard that when you buy one of those Guy Fawkes masks online, your name goes on a list.

    I just made that up… but it could be true :)

  80. David

    G’day Peewhit,

    In uniform at 17, married at 20 and still am to the same woman after 51 years, first of two children at 21. Times were different.

    Wouldn’t even dream of this sort of communication revolution back then.

  81. Grigory M

    Could it be that people have a deep seated need for something sacred – the god shaped, um, hole, and all that?

    ‘cunnies’ ? – you watched “Unforgiven”? Get your hand off it, fuckwit. You’ll go blind.

  82. David

    your name goes on a list

    Sort of a Gilbert and Sullivan thing F. I’m sure she’s on a list and certainly won’t be missed.

  83. Des Deskperson

    ‘So, so predictable. So, so unoriginal’

    From ‘Don’t blame me, I voted Labor’, through ‘Keep your rosaries off out ovaries’ to ‘Miss me yet?’, almost all ‘progressive’ sloganeering is (a) old, (b) borrowed from overseas and (c) used by approximately the same people who want more government money for the arts so that ‘we can tell our own stories’.

  84. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    With David on this one. Served the odd few years, alongside some of the “hardest” men I ever met.

    None of them used, or needed to use, obscenity – they could make their point extremely well without obscene language.

    On the other hand, most of those who dropped the “F###” and “C###” words at every opportunity, would have been totally out of their depth in a car park puddle.

  85. Notafan

    ‘posterity owes me’

  87. Rob MW

    Clam Chowdah – “There was a chap, Rob, something, who had a blog a few years back. Lots of stuff on Palestine, but I can’t recall the name and Googling “Rob” with “Palestine” doesn’t help.”

    Sorry Clam but that’s not me. Unless or until Palestine becomes part of Australia I really don’t give a shit about the mongrel place. Bit like my views on Vlad and the Ukraine; I don’t give a shit as long as they keep their shit in Europe, gas or no gas !!!!

  88. .

    I really don’t get the Guy Fawkes masks.

    Have these people seen V for Vendetta?

    They’re the followers of authoritarianism. Why do they insist on their own destruction?

    They got higher government spending and they are still whingeing. They’re not happy unless special interests and union bosses get to clip someone else’s tickets.

    Can someone explain to me how this helps the workers?

  89. .

    Notafan – see my remark at 8.57 pm. You may be pleasantly surprised…

  90. egg_

    It all sounds like cunning linguistics to me.

    Betcha she’s doing an arts degree…

  92. Notafan

    Thankyou dot,

    I bet public purse artists all grew up with their mummies saying how clever and special and talented and advanced and different they were, while dressing them in trousers made from old chenille bedspreads and moth eaten jumpers manufactured for the opposite gender.
    I also dislike comedians who think drawing out the f word with their lips on the mike is incredibly witty, and that is pretty much their entire routine.
    They can all go starve in a Garrett, him too.

    and 7 years later she’s still finishing the first year of it

  94. Squirrel

    While we’re on the theme of being offensive, let’s not forget the shocker described in this article:

    http://www.theaustralian.com.au/media/broadcast/george-brandis-slams-abc-interview-with-cormann/story-fna045gd-1226920712026?sv=d42510e96c98dea127446517898e2bc1#

    Nothing to worry about, of course, it happened on the ABC, so it must be OK.

  102. Demosthenes

    I think that’s the point of the haircut. It’s butch-lesbian signalling, deliberately going against what the patriarchy deems appropriate for female beauty or something.

  103. eam

    A Lurker,

    It won’t do much for Kalinda’s resume either.

  104. Demosthenes

    I was referring to this wider angle when talking about haircuts.

  105. CatAttack

    She achieved her objective to attract attention.

    Besides the Left love taking their young kiddies to demos to inculcate them at an early age. So they get an education in the use of language as well. Bonus.

  106. CatAttack

    Besides which I dont have a problem with the sign. Just the hypocrisy. Because if she had said the same about Gillard social media would be up in arms.

  107. jupes

    I didn’t tolerate that sort of language when I was in uniform

    Good grief. A uniformed wowser.

    On the other hand, most of those who dropped the “F###” and “C###” words at every opportunity, would have been totally out of their depth in a car park puddle.

    Looks like efforts to save those girls kidnapped byBoko Haram Baka Harem have just ratcheted up a notch: Salma Hayek held up a “Bring Our Girls Home” placard in Cannes.

    Wrong thread.

  113. Regarding that placard.
    Not classy. Tasteless. Regardless of my feelings on a matter, you’d never catch me in public with such a crude, foul, offensive slogan in my hands.

    There’s not much self-respect in that chick holding it. Lord only knows what sort of role models her parents were.

    Indisputably, if the vacum between her ears is an equal match for the strength of vacum between her legs, then she has some value, somewhere. Otherwise she’d just an oxygen thief.

  116. Big Jim

    “‘cunnies’ ? – you watched “Unforgiven”? Get your hand off it, fuckwit. You’ll go blind.”

    ‘Do you think I meant country matters?” – Hamlet to Ophelia. Most commentators, including my professors from the Dark Ages, take this to be sexual innuendo, a play on a certain word, in fact.

    You’re good on Russia, but here you show yourself to be an oaf.

    The wider point is that no-one can offer a post-Christian reason for this one word’s special ooga-booga status, without going hard femmo about it. But sure, feel free to take your taboos from Sociology harridans. Just try to be more reflective.

  117. .

    The Dutch say cunt and fuck and they don’t overuse them as they don’t have a special status. It just doesn’t matter. Then again the Dutchies have some odd names to us if directly translated (Poepjes is just one). They don’t have the same effect of ironically destroying vocabulary by making a native saxon word taboo.

    An alien would think the Dutch are bastards and the Englishers were mad.

  118. jupes

    Not really, just long enough to know that it was usually the biggest mouth that was also the foulest, and it was always the biggest mouth that folded first.

    You do seem to have missed the fact that is is a slur inspired by Christopher Pyne.
