Feedback: Re: David Miller On Powerful Women

Re: David Miller: Coping With Powerful Women

We Need To Help David Miller Find A New Girlfriend

His current partner seems to be suffering from a common and boring neurosis, prevalent amongst those women who have adopted affectations toward feminism, without actually having spent much time thinking about it.

Alas, the symptoms are present - the willingness to shriek accusations of sexism, on the scantiest of evidence. In the eyes of this poor sufferer, legitimate critique of Christine Rankin, political or aesthetic, is perceived as fear of Women’s Power(TM), and humble musings of marriage traditions are enthusiastically pounced upon, and the musor is denounced, likened to the worst kind of faeces-consuming animal.

I propose a cure for this neurosis.
Perhaps if our ailed companions could be taught about sexism. We could show them how women are treated in India or Iran, for example. I bet any one of the Afghani women currently aboard the Tampa would not see sexism in David’s innocent musings after living under the Taliban.

Don't worry Dave. If she can't be cured, we can help by setting you up with someone less neurotic.

C.S. Williams.

David Miller,

In response to your article that was posted on Tuesday 04 September 2001, I believe you that should start listening to “Lisa” she had some real valid points. Why should women change their name? Their name is also a “brand name”, why should women give this away, just because they get married!

Your father is right: women are the stronger sex. We are able to cope with a lot more than men. Men need to swallow their pride and just get on with it. You never know men might just start getting the top jobs again.

Please pass on to “Lisa” that all of the women in my office support her and her comments.

Men like you give men a bad name.

Gordon Campbell: On The Harry/Meghan Affair, And Iran

Those “Meghzit” headlines seem apt, given how closely Britain’s January 31 exit from the European Union resembles the imminent departure from the Royal Family’s top team of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. For young Iranians, the accidental downing of the Ukrainian airliner is just the latest example of the deadly incompetence and dishonesty of their leaders... More>>

Gordon Campbell: On The Iran Aftermath

So, evidently, you can get away with murder. It looks as though a further escalation in the ongoing war between Iran and the US has been avoided – mainly thanks to Iran NOT responding in kind to the recklessly unhinged behaviour by the United States. Given the massive outpouring of public grief in Iran over the murder of Qassem Soleimani, some reciprocal action by Iran was necessary, but (so far) it has been almost entirely symbolic in nature...

Gordon Campbell: On The Aussie Bush Fires And Suleimani
