Media #FTW- Australian Prime Minister PWNs misogynist

After the leader of the opposition in the Australian Parliament provided a lecture on ‘reverse sexism,’ the Prime Minister argued that reverse sexism is not a problem: misogyny and sexism, on the part of the Opposition, is the problem. Prime Minister Gillard’s speech reveals exactly how “reverse sexism” is often used as a tool to silence women who target male privilege, and then teaches the Opposition Leader and his Bench about misogyny using their own conservative policies and statements as examples.
