TV clash as business boss fires up on sexism row
Under-fire business leader Alasdair Thompson and a female journalist clashed in a fiery stand-off on television last night over his claim that menstruation affected women's productivity.
Well, well, well - what do we have here? The naked sexism of NZ's top bossman, Alasdair Thompson has shocked so many NZers now, the only righteous thing is for this sexist prick to sacked, he doesn't deserve the option to resign.
His outrageous bullying of Mihingarangi Forbes during an interview when she challenged him on his belief of why Women are paid less because of their periods, has to be seen to be believed. He stands over her for Christ's sakes and she is forced to take a step backwards! How the hell is that acceptable to a Journalist who is questioning a powerful NZer over their bigotry?
It isn't but it gives a real insight into the chauvinist pig arrogance of the bossman of bossmen
As bossman of the Employers and Manufacturers Association, Aladair's jaw dropping sexism and now bullying gives a real idea of how the old boys club view Women and that these pricks are the ones advising ALL the bosses of NZ.
The mere idea that women get paid less because they have periods is so stupid, at first it can't be offensive, and many I think were prepared to believe he had brain-farted his ignorance but since speaking it, Alasdair has made it excruciatingly clear that he actually believes this garbage, and as such, he has no other option than to be sacked.
No wonder NZ has so few women on Boards when the mentality towards them is like this. Nice to see what the Employers and Manufacturers Association who have been pushing the Government for the 90 day right to sack, the right to limit Union work site access and youth rates really think about women while Alasdair Thompson is the leader of that organisation.
Will the 90 day right to sack be shortened to 30 days, because 3 menstrual cycles is too many to risk as a boss?
Will Union access be limited even more if the delegate is female in case she attracts dogs onto a work site?
Will Youth rates stop for women only after they hit menopause?
For Alasdair Thompson, the Glass ceiling is to stop women AND act as a barrier to prevent all the menstrual blood splash back.
You are an offensive clown Alasdair and your misogyny is actually breath taking. I implore our sisters and wahine know that this sexist prick doesn't in any way shape or form speak for modern NZ men, Alasdair is a dinosaur and his extinction is long overdue.
