Germaine...do you like sex & travel?

...well fuck off!
Have a go at the ugly crone. Great advertisement for feminism aint it. I mean I know she's not the young spunk she once thought she was but, fair dinkum, you'd think she'd at least try a little. She's got a face like a dropped pie.

Why am I having a go at Germs? Well once again she's opened her mouth before engaging gear. This time she's inciting Aussie sheilas to get out there and smash Holden Showrooms. Why? Cause she finds the latest Holden Four Wheel Drive ad humiliating to women - an ad. which shows a woman asking her partner about his fantasies before he drifts off on a daydream about "doing daring things in a four-wheel drive" with another woman by his side.

Now I haven't seen the ad. but it sounds innocuous enough. And probably corny as. But knowing foot-in-the-mouth Greer like I do I'd say it's probably a funny and uniquely Orstrayen ad. Bit like those brilliant Toyota ads where the bushies keep saying "Bugger" (Wendy's favourite Aussieism).

So I don't think Germs gets it. Either that or she's just self-publicising again.

"Now my question to you women is why have you allowed this to happen?" she said at an International Women's Day function on the Gold Coast.

"Why haven't plate-glass windows in Holden showrooms been exploding all over Australia?

"How much humiliation are you women up for? I promise you, they wouldn't dare do it in Europe - they wouldn't dare".

"They wouldn't dare do it in Europe". Are you completely fucking stupid or just blind? Or both. You seen the ads they run in Europe? There's full-frontal nudity everywhere - tits and arse mainly. You don't have to go far to look for it. It's in your face. Australian ads look positively charming against some of the dross I've seen over here. So once again you're talking a complete load of bollocks you silly old bat.

A spokesman for Holden said that the ad for the Holden Rodeo utility had been screening for about six weeks and the company had not received any complaints.

"Hey Germs! You heard of Aussie humour? Self-deprecating humour? Guess you've forgotten it living over there with the Poms for so long. Playing at being one of the landed gentry. You come to Australia, what? Once a year, if that. And every time you slag us off.

You know that old Stones song? - You're out of Time?

You don't know what's going on
You've been away for far too long
You can't come back and think you are still mine
You're out of touch, my baby
My poor discarded baby
I said, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time

And we're all humiliated by you babe. So do us a favour and take your brand of humourless feminism back to the nanny-state of Blairs World.

Oh yeah...Happy International Women's Day.

and i see the humourless pommy pricks have banned our 'where the bloody hell are ya?' advertising campaign. Well good, there is enough of the pricks here anyway. You'd think the fact that a hotty in a bikini recites it would make it ok too. sheesh.

what the bloody hell is wrong with 'where the bloody hell are ya'?? She's young, she's beautiful, she's in a bikinki - who can have a problem with that??
I love that add on tv at the moment where the little girl and her mum are in the car on the way home from school and some boy waves and the daughter makes a rude response, and her mum says 'that wasn't very nice, wasn't that Johnny waving at you'? And the cute little girl says 'he's a bloody idiot!'. The mother is shocked, and then goes on to a 'road rage' incident using the same and worse language. Gold.
As for poor old Germaine - give her a break. She's been pushing the envelope for the feminists for years. Agree with her or not, you have to give it to her for perseverence at her age, if nothing else. And after glimpsing the likes of Priscilla Presley and a few others recently, it's kind of refreshing to see someone aging naturally, no matter how unattractive it may be.

Vic, every time she opens her mouth shit comes out. She gets it wrong all the time. Go and have a look at the rubbish she's been sprouting lately. She hasn't a clue about Australia any more. I read the shit she writes in the English papers. "Feminist" my arse. "Professional Feminist" maybe. She lost the plot years ago. Don't get me started. I've been debunking her in the English press for the past couple of years - she talks horseshit - gets all her facts and figures wrong - skews them to support her lightweight argument. She's a tired old tart who calls herself a "Feminist". She can fuck right off as far as I'm concerned.

And as for the dopey Poms banning the Australian Tourism Ad. - that's par for the course with the rampant Political Correctness going on over there. Don't get me started on that one either. But the stupid pricks don't realise that by banning the Ad. they are just giving it heaps of Free Publicity. Der.

whoa take a chill pill lambe! I agree she is a boring, stupid, old idiot with a very thin grasp on reality. She does however make a point here and there, although few and far between admittedly. But let's face it, with very few fans - she keeps on keeping on. She is a character who refuses to shut up with age and will bore us all gracelessly into senility and beyond. You gotta love that...
As for the poms, who needs 'em anyway.

I'm cool, dear. It's the way I write. With passion. But that bitch is a right harridan. I believe her middle name was "Bike" in her Uni days. And now it's "lights" - as in the lights are on but there's nobody home.

Eck. My problem with her is that with all the crap going on in the world she chooses to kick up a fuss about a not particluarly offesnive ad.

A US state has just banned abortion and the morning after pill, with no exception for rape or incest - setting a potentially dangerous precedent for the whole country. Why isn't she kicking up a fuss about that?

Fucking skewed priorities ...

She's just a hard up old cow who is desperate for attention.

It would be better for everyone if she retired gracefully.

And I HATE it that she calls herself Australian.
