A Woman’s View

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 3:38 pm Thu 26th July 2018

The woman’s view although they have had a liberated voice for a long time is often a little obscure.

It varies from here come those crazy bitches to vary degrees of nods or silence to may God help you … (I do recall that last one being as recent as last year, whoever the kind soul was who took pity on us).

Every now and again there’s a wiff of political sanity that offers a pretense of fairness to the embattled men in the gender war.

But I honestly didn’t think in my lifetime I’d see a pretty face holding up this protest sign – have a look at the one on the right.

It’s from the RNZ news site and good on them for spotting this if it wasn’t a jack up.

I’d love to hear her view on what inspired this sign because I think she’s right on the money. But then again she might not be thinking what I’m thinking.

A couple of us on this site bounced this idea around a few months back, although I don’t think we were talking about exactly the same thing.

But naturally, seeing this sign now, I’m thinking … reality might be starting to sink in for some of these girls.

So, what’s your take on this protest sign? “Stop The Devaluation of Feminised Jobs”.


  1. Looks to me that someone failed an IQ test and is skiting about it?
    Why go into a job, that they know will be devalued by the very fact that they, as a woman, entered that job?
    She could have been a fighter pilot, drain digger, building construction worker, engineer, …..

  2. Would you have been so well equipped at a young age to understand that?

    Remembering intelligence is a variable, even for women, perhaps that’s nothing more than natural progression.

  3. This article shows the opposite situation in the Chinese population of 130 men to 100 women and the difficulties of social expectations, whereas New Zealand has 90 men to 100 women.

  4. @3 –
    Men value in this society is the inverse exponential proportionality to its segment population in society. Shows we are in demand. And there is inflation. Why are selling our selves so cheap?
    Why the sell out?

  5. Is it because there in no real man left?
    Washouts, wounded, terrorized little boys only left?
    MEN (Men Entrapped in Negation) Arrested development?
    Or is it nature’s way of filling the void left by lack of upstanding men?
    When the cat is away – what do mice do?
