NDP MP Rathika Sitsabaiesan is finally heard from about her doctored official Parliamentary photo but only to play the gender card and refusing to say that she was the one who authorized the airbrushing.
From the Star: ‘She says that if the photo were of a man and his image had been tampered with, it likely wouldn’t be an issue.’
Ummm…what? If a male MP was caught airbrushing out his cleavage?!
And check out this quote from Sitsabaiesan:
Every time I stand up in the House of Commons and speak I look around and I can see it, this surprise that a young, attractive woman is saying something important and intelligent. Sometimes I get asked more about my lipstick rather than what’s coming out of my mouth” (see here)
Someone thinks quite highly of herself now doesn’t she and is she stating it’s men asking her about her lipstick colour choice? I’d suggest that’s very unlikely so maybe she should bash those awful women who “objectify” her.
