Australian Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce has fathered a child with a former staffer, and his marriage has now ended, His estranged wife, four daughters, and his electorate will understandably feel hurt and betrayed. He may yet be forced to resign from Parliament for this scandal.
Well known radical feminist commentator, Clementine Ford, couldn't resist the chance to write an article attacking Joyce, because he opposed same sex marriage whilst being unfaithful to his wife. She also uses her article to smear the Australian Christian Lobby and the Australian Family Association, because of Joyce's past association with them during Australia's same sex marriage debate.
She also claims that if a woman in Joyce's position had committed these indiscretions, she'd have already been forced to resign. In her view, Joyce is a man, so he is held to a different standard. I don't know what media she consumes, because I don't see this at all. Media commentators have clearly said that Joyce's position is untenable, and he must resign.
New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern recently announced her pregnancy. She was supposed to have been attacked for not disclosing this information during the election campaign. I don't see what this has to do with Barnaby Joyce. Besides, expectant mothers often wait until the end of the first trimester to announce their pregnancies. It is very offensive to accuse her of lying to New Zealand voters.
We get it. She is no fan of conservative politicians, or conservative Christians, especially men. She uses this article to attack both of them. As well as a misotheist, is she also a latent misandrist?
I'm glad I'm not a radical leftist. I couldn't handle being angry and hateful all the time.
