Women forced into the kitchen to make inappropriate coconut rough
18 year old William Struthers won a trip to the United States and Canada to visit Lions clubs, talk about New Zealand, and present his winning speech.
His speech was about "women and why they should stay in the kitchen", I wonder if Aung San Suu Kyi who was released from 15 years home detention would follow Wills view on modern gender roles in the 21st century?
What's next from the Lion Club speech competition? 'Gay people shouldn't be allowed near children', 'Maori are so lazy' and 'Slavery, why Unions have it all wrong".
Perhaps the 'Lion Club's Young Speechmaker of the year' should be renamed the 'Paul Henry Supporters Memorial Gated Community Award for Tolerance'?
Speaking of inappropriate things, a Pacific Island Labour Party volunteer in the Mana electorate called the National Party candidate on their Facebook site a "dumb ass coconut".
This was explained away as simply 'Pacific Island humor' which is bullshit, this isn't 'Pacific Island humor' at all, this is called "pretending to cover the real issues for the voters of Mana by pettily focusing on what some worker ant posts on their Facebook site". I thought the voters of Mana were concerned about jobs and why this Government is letting them down by not creating any employment while slashing welfare.
The voters of Mana are supposedly more concerned with Facebook updates.
