‘We have come so far’ – what a misleading thought. Especially if we try to associate this saying with gender equality.
To make this point very clear – did you know that women are fined $300 for swimming topless? Yes it is true, and it happened here in Byron, just a couple of weeks ago. So, the question is, does a man also get fined $300 for swimming topless? I think we all know the answer to that one.
Another question: how is it possible that a law like this can be proposed within our parliament, and agreed upon?’ Can you imagine the group of men (because of course a woman is not going to pass a law like this) sitting around talking about it and then AGREEING to it? What the hell! This leaves me angry and frustrated.
