Racism, age and gender discrimination allowed in media as long as it’s about being white and male

My favorite game to play when I see headlines such as this one from the Huffington Post “Motion 312: If You’re An Old White Guy, I Don’t Want to Hear” is to reverse the gender and race and ask if  it would then be deemed ok for publishing.

We all know the answer that if this column was not about old white males, it would never have seen the light of day and the writer would not be welcome to submit anything in the future but since it bashes the right sect, no problem.

Not only does the author Supriya Dwivedi use the term “old white men” 5 times and “old white guy” twice to make it such an extremely racist and ageist column, it is also about the most illogical piece of tripe I’ve ever read.

By using her thinking, no one may have an opinion on any issue unless it directly relates to them and as an example, a MP may only vote on pension legislation if  they are of retiree age.

What a silly young, brown girl.



Outdated Status of Women ministry should be eliminated

In all this faux-outrage over Minister of  State Rona Ambrose’s vote on the abortion related private members bill (see here) I’m left wondering why we still have a gender specific ministry.

Tell me how this Trudeau-era ministry is relevant in today’s Canada?
