The Bushby-Wong meow-row and the barbaric sexism of the Liberal Party

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Thursday, June 2, 2011,
Fellow travellers, I'm sure you have all heard of this latest appalling act by the Opposition, in which the vile David Bushby meowed at sassy sister Penny Wong. Of course the right-wing knuckle draggers in the Liberal Party have argued that it was a comparatively minor insult, and that Labor politicians are capable of vile attacks as well. Their media apologists cite Mark Latham's use of the insult "skanky ho" against Janet Albrechtsen, and Julia Gillard's description of Christopher Pyne as a...

High ranking officials actually line up to celebrate acts of mass murder, which peenie-waving patriarchs describe, in their usual deceitful way, as "acts of...

Giant lizard has profound message

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Wednesday, April 7, 2010,
Fellow travellers, upon reading this article about a lizard that was recently discovered in the Philippines I was deeply appalled. You see, this close relative of the Komodo Dragon actually possesses two penises!

What on (Mother) Earth could Gaia be saying with this! As we all know Nature is kind and loving - the very antithesis of phallocentric patriachalism.
