The next Father of the Year will be a woman. Happy now?

When I see women and some men marching in the name of feminism and  screeching hysterically about how awful men are,  I wonder if these women are cutting off their noses to spite their faces.

I despair that a new terminology has entered our language- toxic masculinity.

So men are dangerous, poisonous, horrible creatures and it is up to women to reform them,  castigate them,  and demonstrate against them.

Basically,  what women want is to turn the men into women or  “menettes”.  Apparently, we need men but only on our terms.  They must be more like us.

Is it any wonder that men are subconsciously feeling so set-upon that they are growing beards and getting tattoos?  I interpret this desire to grow facial hair as evidence that men need to assert their masculine traits.  They are confused about how they should approach women. They don’t want to offend women  and heaven help them if they are politically incorrect by opening a door for a woman or paying her a compliment.

Before somebody accuses me of treachery and misogyny regarding my own gender, I categorically declare that I am for equal rights and equal opportunities for both sexes.

I am concerned,  however,  that so much animosity towards men, is counter-productive.

Not all men are monsters who rape and pillage,  so don’t treat them as if they are.

Does anyone understand the Medownick TV commercial?

We have been inundated lately with a most idiotic commercial for laser eye surgery by the Medownick group.  To be more exact, it’s what I guess it’s supposed to be.  There’s something mentioned about a place to lose your glasses, but I’m not quite sure why.

A couple of kids who resemble one another are seen throwing a pair of spectacles around.  Are they brother and sister?  One of them shouts that he can’t see but he’s quite happy about that. The other one, his sister perhaps,  suggests that he should trample the spectacles. She’s finding all this very amusing as does her stupid brother.

In another scene some idiot has gone swimming in the surf with his glasses and lost them. This is also good news, apparently, but then we are told that we should lose our glasses at Medownick.

I have written in the past that some commercials may become popular because they are so annoying and yet their message gets through.  This one, however, makes one feel that if Medownick approve such idiotic ads, then how good is their judgement?

Will one go to their practice and be operated on and then leave crying  “I can’t see anything!   I can’t see anything……?

An open invitation to President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines

Sometimes you just have to have the guts to stand up against crime.  For this reason I would love to extend an invitation to President Duterte to come to Melbourne, Australia and help clean up the mess caused by African and other criminals who terrorise people in their homes, their cars and their places of business.

I have just come home after seeing the result of yet another jewellery store robbery in Melbourne.  It is the same store that was robbed three months ago by a gang of Africans. This time there was a group of four brandishing a hammer and a GUN while another one of them waited outside.

In Australia,  we are advised to be politically correct so as not to upset the criminals.  So from now on I have decided to refer to them as being of  “Martian Appearance.” Apologies to the planet.

I resent that these criminal acts are being described as “brazen”. What is brazen about attacking a shop with weapons and injuring an unarmed employee?

Cowardly?

Yes.

Violent?

Definitely.

So please Mr President,  we need help.
