The Labour Party has put into practice its ‘Man Ban’ policy even though Cunliffe previously made a show of rejecting it. Their list published yesterday was based on candidates’ genitals rather than merit in an effort to ensure a 45% female quota in their next caucus. By basing candidate selection on genitals and favouring vaginas over penises to any extent, Labour is discriminating against men to that same extent.
The party’s name has long been a falsehood because it’s a long time since they represented workers in NZ. The party has also long been known as a male-bashing party. Labour has now sunk to new depths in its abandonment of true gender equality by reducing the human rights it accords male candidate hopefuls. Anyone who recognizes the importance and value of men will hope that the polls are accurate in predicting another major reduction in Labour’s voter support. Unfortunately, there is no sign of any male-friendly party for male-respecting voters to turn to.
