Gawd, it’s been all ‘what’s rape?’ and ‘but it’s not rapey-rape’ and anti-abortion madness cos you can’t really get pregnant if you get raped and nasty stats that show more than 50% women murdered are killed by their partners who get about 5 minutes in jail because appaz their ladies said something a bit mean and provocative and they probably had it coming and shit.
It’s been a week where lots of white rich men-folk in power or on the telly have used the phrase “feminists will say” because they think being a feminist means you’re a mental man-hating anti-everything anarchist, not just a person who thinks should be fairer and nice and things.
It’s been a shitty week for people, not just women. Capped off for me by a threatening final demand notice from my strata company for $700 or go to court, you slack, povo bitch, my cat’s clearly demonstrated separation anxiety when I am less than 1m away and my dad’s refusal to pay for me to get my eggs frozen for Christmas. Yay. In better news, Perth now has Sunday trading (welcome to the world, Western Australia, we’ve been waiting…) and I’ve got a laptop with the letters W and A that work.
In conclusion: a 5/10 week.
