Contrary to what you have been told, you are not the centre of the universe

Real Men

A Farce in One Act
Scene: The Prime Minister’s office

Interviewer: How does it feel to be Australia’s first female Prime Minister?

Malcolm: But… but… but… I’m a man…  

Interviewer: Yeah, good one. No really, please my listeners really want to know.  

Malcolm: Ah… um… Lucy… ?  

Lucy: Julia Gillard was Australia’s’ first female Prime Minister. 

Interviewer: Oh, you must be Malcolm’s husband… Gillard is a woman? Go on, you’re taking the piss aren’t you, I’ve seen her ‘partner’ Tim, isn’t it?  

Lucy: How dare you… that’s grossly offensive and sexist…  

Interviewer: Oh how sweet, chivalry is not dead.
Okay, so moving on… Malcolm, you’re not a woman and blind Freddie can see you’re not a man, I guess you’re in what confused individuals call “the questioning stage”.
So as a non-masculine PM, your position on abortion would be instructive. Do you support the murder of babies moments before birth, under the grossly offensive and sexist lie that it is an issue of women’s health?

Malcolm: LUCY!!!!  

Lucy: We don’t discuss that issue in Australia. Get out!  

Interviewer: Well there we are folks, cowardice and delusion are strong in Australia’s second female Prime Minister and in the Australian women she leads.
