The mayor from Mt Isa (a mining town in Queensland, Australia) clearly has difficulty attracting women. Perhaps his lack of success in love is not due to the gender imbalance of the town but can be accounted for by the indisputable fact that he is a complete and utter tosser whom no self-respecting woman would touch with a barge pole.
As evidence, take his charming comments below:
“A woman can come here and transfer themselves with love and devotion in marriage from an ugly ducking to a beautiful swan. It can have a complete transformation for a woman.”
and when the community complained, he declared:
“I think the women who turned up at that protest rally tonight are beauty disadvantaged themselves and they can’t get over it so they attack me,” he said.
This is wrong on so many levels! AAAAAARRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHH!
So that’s right. If you’re ugly and you know it – or even if you aren’t but you just don’t quite meet our Exacting Standards for Certified Swanness – and want a bit of Horny But Not Too Fussy Lovin’ head to Mt Isa where you can finally Catch Your Man (although, be warned, he might happen to be a misogynist, patriarchal dick) and be magically transformed into Valid Womanhood instead of sitting on that Shelf becoming an Old Maid. Of course, you’ll still be ugly, you won’t really be a swan, but we can pretend, right. After all, he gets a fuck (with a paper bag over your head, no doubt) and you get a MAN. Good trade, right?
There are not enough expletives in the world to capture quite how angry this charming man’s comments have made me.
