A friend sent this to me. Article claiming Julia Gillard was ousted because of sexism.
The article is full of half-truths and hallow accomplishments, not to mention "successes" that are actually failures (she passed the most amount of legislation since WWII - OH GREAT! Just what everybody wants! More rules!)
But something caught my economist eye. The author claims Australia's GDP increased by 14% under Gillard. Of course it was a feminist prime minister that was the cause of this great economic growth. Not the hard working people of Australia and certainly not China's economic boom requiring Australia's natural resources. No, Ms. Gillard, just like Obama could fart out GDP.
Regardless, I found that 14% odd and a little high for a prime minister that has only been there, about 3 years. So I did two things feminists don't;
Look up some facts
Here's the data I used - RGDP growth rates from the OECD.
Here's the math I did exponentially multiplying the various years, halving 2010's and 2013's growth since Ms. Gillard took over and got fired mid year in each years respectively.
The REAL economic growth figure?
Look, ladies (and by ladies, I mean feminists), if you want to be treated as equals you need to actually BE EQUALS. Not hacks, not spoiled children following an ideology at the cost of truth, and on top of it you need to be able to do at least 5th grade mathematics. You demand all these changes in society, you demand everybody make sacrifices, but when all you spew is propaganda that is either spun so much it's not true, our just outright lies, your entire credibility is shot.
Perhaps you could enlist some engineers and accountants of the female persuasion instead of drudging up the same ole "leftist, humanities-majoring "journalist/writer/adviser/activist" (Oh, that's right, those women are busy with real jobs and producing actual GDP and economic production people want!). Or perhaps you could take some elementary school math classes for free at Khan's Academy. Or perhaps you could actually grow up into a mature adult, learn about economics, develop intellectual honesty, and learn what "empirical" evidence means before you start advocating the world change to unfairly benefit you.
Because to tell you the honest truth, when all your mind is capable of is viewing the world through the feminist lens, you don't come off as myopic, self-serving, and a cry baby, you ARE MYOPIC, SELF-SERVING and a CRY BABY. And ironically if all you can do is whine and complain, chalking every problem up to "sexism" and not take your lumps like a real man, then not only will you incorrectly diagnose yours or society's problems, you will never achieve parity with men.
But please, continue on the "feminism at all costs, including the truth." It provides immense entertainment for myself, not to mention exposes who are charlatans and ideologues advancing a political cause to benefit at the expense of others, and who are actual statesmen and patriots who care about society.
