Feminists Need To Face Biological Reality
Libertarianz deputy leader Richard McGrath believes the University Students Association has got it all wrong over the issue of rights for working women. "The only way women would ever be on an equal footing in the workplace or anywhere else would be if men were able to conceive, give birth and breast feed babies," he said. "And that just ain't gonna happen in the forseeable future."
"Militant left-wing university feminists don't actually want equal rights," McGrath added. "They already have that. What they do want are special privileges, paid for by men, to compensate them for what they see as the injustice of sexual reproduction. Well, here's one man saying he is sick of subsidising working women who want to breed - the only exception being the mother of my own children. As an employer I am even less enamoured with the prospect of being forced by Laila Harre to provide these breeders with 14 weeks paid holiday."
"Taxpayers, particularly those without children, should not be made to cover the parenthood expenses of others. Nor should employers be made to shell out, unless of course they have impregnated (or been impregnated by) one or more of their own employees. My party believes in natural justice, not in shifting responsibility onto others, as Laila Harre and others are so keen to do."
