Aussie parliament is much more entertaining than the US Congress.

Musuko: Uhm no, that`s racist.

I`ve heard men being called a bitch. It means, a malicious, spiteful, or overbearing person. It`s not a sexist word, at least not nowadays.

Your logic is flawed, Obama has done many things wrong, but I`d never use the N-word to describe him (or anyone else). That word is not in my vocabulary and I`m sorry to hear that it is part of yours.

I liked it, good jorb. But was all that really over some guy texting bewb pics with funny comments like "She doesn`t need a life vest, wink wink, nudge nudge, say no more, say no more". ?

FoolsPrussia, you are correct that pointing out hypocrisy is overdone and should probably be avoided most of the time. And thank you for noting that I am not a misogynist.

It was an entertaining clip, I actually had a discussion with my friends about it.

"If it`s true that she backstabs people then she`s rightly called a bitch."

No. You call her a backstabber.

By your logic, if Obama were guilty of doing something wrong, you`d be entitled to call him a n*gger.

@Andrew: I am aware of her gay marriage stance, and I disagree with it. That doesn`t mean we can`t agree with her when she stands up against another form of bigotry. I don`t find accusing others of hypocrisy often accomplishes much more in an argument than changing the subject.

I posted this because I thought it was an entertaining political smackdown. I didn`t see you making mysoginist statements like some of the other dweebs on here, so I know you`re not like those guys.

She`s well spoken and made a fine, intelligent point.
But she needs to learn "brevity". She lost me `cause she
did the typical chick thing...talk talk talk.

I`m not sexist but bitches just don`t shut up.

The main thing to note here is that this lady is a hypocrite. She claims to want equal civil rights, but then she oppresses gays by being against Gay Marriage. Despite what you all think, this woman is not infallible because she takes the ridiculously uncourageous stance of being against sexism (basically everyone in the West is against it). She is, in fact, very fallible. Her immigration policy would be considered pretty racist by American standards, too.

Her approval rating is 27%, and her disapproval rating is 60%. We`re talking about Bush levels.

Jamie, you are weird. I am not conservative. I am not anti-woman. I am not for or against either of these Australian politicians. She is annoying though, and my Australian friend, who is in her party, thinks she is boring. And she is. What`s the problem here?

Woman can lead? Really? Come off it, mate. You`re not in such a morally high position. You can`t seriously be this self-righteous. I am actually baffled that I elicited such a bizarre response from you. I don`t have a single sexist bone in my body and your insinuation I do just means you have nothing else to go on to demean me. You tend to suck at arguing in general. Resorting to charges of sexism and racism, along with labeling your opponent "boy", is a last refuge of the weak, incompetent, and uncreative. Again, come off it.

I did vote for Hillary Clinton, if that`s what you want to know. Shall I have it tattooed on my face?

This isn`t as exciting as Taiwanese, or current Greek politics.

Government would be much more entertaining if it were conducted under MMA rules

She wasn`t just called a `bitch` in the sense of being an annoying woman. She was called a `bitch` in the sense that she "belonged" to a man and was subservient to him.

Some of you guys are unbelievable. Did you watch the whole video? The man didn`t just insult her because she`s a woman, he insulted all women by claiming in an interview that women are, by nature, not suited for leadership.

jamie: Insults are insults, to say they are sexist just because she`s a woman is like Obama playing the race card every time someone disagrees with him.

gigs: Why? It goes toward motive. If it`s true that she backstabs people then she`s rightly called a bitch. If a man had done the same thing and was called a douchebag then he would deserve it just the same.

Unless you think it`s only sexist to insult women and that insulting men, in the same manner, isn`t sexist. Then you`re a hypocrite.

not only did this female PM lay the smack down on the opposition leader but she would easily tear you apart (like most people here do on a daily basis) in any debate.

what`s the matter Andy, did you hear a strong woman shut sdown a sexiest ahole and feel a struck a little to close to home for you?

hmmm, I wonder if your bout of insecurity is starting to show...nah I know it is, just like all conservatives you are afraid of anything and everything that is different than you or challenges your preconceived notions of the world.

face it bud, women are as strong and as capable as any man AND CERTAINLY more so capable than a boy like you.

Isn`t this a woman who came to power by stabbing her own party`s PM in the back, Kevin Rudd?"

it`s like a rfelx with you republicans to deflect any issue you see that makes conservatives look bad isn`t it?

what does how she came to power have to do with her pointing out this man`s own sexiest words?

any man that thinks men are superior to women in anyway other than being stronger physically on average, is a man who is insecure, afraid of women and upset at their own impotence.

I have an Australian friend who has run for high office there and has told me he spent an entire night talking with this current Prime Minister. He said she was actually the most BORING person you could ever speak to.

And now I know why.

11 Let a woman learn in silence with all submission. 12 And I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, but to be in silence.
