Now I'm not one to Complain, But....



I awoke this morning to the World Service, 'Outlook' was offering us yet another sob story, just what I need when darkness covers the land.  Day after day Matthew Bannister indulges himself with tales of woe, rape, torture, suffering and anguish, mostly from women, doing his best to imitate one of those women's magazine's that live on that sort of thing.  Just what is it about such mags that they sell by trauma?  Who can forget the cover headline 'MY LOVER WAS AN ANORAK?  The stories follow suit, 'Doctor healed by face,' 'My child was black,' 'My hair went gray.'  The women of this world appear to require an hour's emoting over another's pain rather than having a life, why?  If someone is suffering try to help them, if you can't do anything why enjoy their pain? 

The only shock 'Outlook,' is that a man presents the programme.  Later, as I dozed, we come to 'Farming Today.'  Now you might think that an occupation dominated by males would have a suitable presenter but no!  Only women are allowed to lead this one.  Two were involved today, too much for one I ask?   Of course a woman is producer!  After the torrential rain that has flooded the farms and destroyed much of the crops it would be reasonable to expect the programme to be dominated by sodden farms, but no!  The first story concerns the 23,000 women now involved in farming!  Gosh, it was always men before because the work was 'heavy,' now women are involved because of machinery.  I suppose the farmers wife of days gone by does not count?  I suppose they never worked a tractor or pushed cows about?  Today however women work on farms because it is 'light work!'  I think some women may object, the men certainly should.  So men do the hard work, women the easy, and they get more pay, this is a femail guide to equality I suppose?  

Talking of high wages and little work have you noticed how News Sports broadcasts are almost always presented by women?  All channels, on both TV and radio men are blatantly discriminated against, any objector is howled down, often by the men in the media!  The men that is who have yet to suffer being replaced by a floosie.  The 'Daily Mail,' that pillar of objectivity and high standards, daily offers us a report of a hard done by woman and her suffering at work.  Her wages are always less, the 'glass ceiling' against her, and men have it easy.  Not the men who have to do her work while she is off work yet again of course!  Those kids make a good excuse to miss the difficult days.  The feminist lobby object to hard facts from male commentators asking if men on oil rigs suffer in any way, or the difficulties of those digging holes in the road.  Femail concern is not offered these men.  The other day some men, names withheld, commentated somewhat cynically on the report that women in their 20's now earned more than their male colleagues of similar age.  The result was an outbreak of misandry.  Not one misandrist suggested equality meant equal pay, they just took the money and ran!  So if a woman gets more than a man that is OK to them.  

Men are suffering discrimination at work in every sphere, apart from those that require hard work, and it should cease with immediate effect I say!

Dammit! Women are taking over the world! Is nothing fair anymore? ;)

Men still control the airwaves and TV screens as far as sport is concerned down this way....at this point in time...anything can happen...it it does!

Watch this space!

Ohhh a rant about inequality. And such a charming twist - it is the MAN who is being discriminated against. I hope you will continue to enlighten us about the plight of male discrimination .... maybe even a few links to organizations that offer support, organize walk-a-thons and the like. Are there T-shirts we can buy: I'm PRO-MALE. (Does it mean we must be anti-female because I will find it quite difficult to rid myself of my ummm ... feminine parts)??? Wow. Thank you for bringing to light this hidden misandry. I shall write my congress ... woman.

Lee, The Aussies are well ahead in that!

RDG, And how many men do you employ? Pah!

I can't believe that you can afford to keep paying these ladies to say nice things to you. It's coming out of my share of the lottery winnings--isn't it?

I do love you, you horrible misanthrope!

No men hired this holiday season (none applied); but the regional manager is male .... and all the top positions in the company are held by men (CEO CFO etc). I know the $4 million our store alone will generate this year ISN'T going into MY pocket .....

Soub, Chicken! Sand up for yourself before it's too late!

RDG, Misanthrope? When I work out what that means there will be trouble.

At least the company is well run......

Ummm but you missed out saying that most young women know they are the ones who need to bear the kids and it can be a real problem having to do the job as well, unlike men. It is no fun when you are so nauseous you even throw up when you someone you don't like walks in the room!! (does not do much for your social life either) Personally I am sorry for Kate because I wouldn't wish it on anyone.

Jenny, Men have to look after kids also, and always have done, in spite of what some say.
