My head just exploded…

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.

    I knew there was a reason I had never visited the far north…

    No thanks. I’ve already got a husband who would never stop throwing up if he read this.

    Besides, there are worse things than being alone…being around the Mayor of Mt Isa is clearly one of them.

    Mt Isa, nifty place.

    I researched it in great detail when I thought they might hire me as a foreign doctor.

    You may be over reacting on this.
    Isa is literally out in the middle of nowhere, vast nowhere, so they probably do have a serious shortage of ladies, and the miner mayor simply misspoke, being a fellow elected by miners in the middle of nowhere.

    But the town itself is nifty, if arid, and has great potential for ladies to my thinking.

    Employment alone today is reason enough to visit.

    Anything beyond that is icing.

    And the mayor?

    Don’t be so hard on him. Social graces in remote locations often degrade in proportion to distance from the rest of society.

    Batguano, having a shortage of “ladies” is no reason for disrespect or for losing the “social graces”.

    By the way, do I detect a shadow of a dichotomy in your choice of “ladies” rather than women? I do hope not.

    As a native Texan of the old school, and resident of Atlanta Georgia I appeal to your understanding and reason.

    EVERY woman is a “lady” in the best sense of the word until proven otherwise by her actions in public, therefore deserving of respect and treated as such automatically.

    If you embrace some doctrine which loathes having doors opened, chairs pulled back, given first place before men, and provided deference and honor down to walking on the outside of a sidewalk to shield a lady from splashes of passing vehicles, then rightly so, take offense.

    If not however, be so kind as to receive kind words as they are meant to your discomfort and agitation at the thoughtless remarks of the man in Mt Isa.

    Remember you are the very flower of womanhood, and cherished as such, without regard to the semantics currently in use today, to those men raised in the courtesies and values which esteem you and all ladies everywhere.
