Plight of children 3

to_deveny_2-172x115Long time feminist journo Catherine Deveny has been sacked by The Age newspaper for suggesting that the 11 year old daughter of deceased naturalist Steve Irwin should get porked by someone:

“I do so hope Bindi Irwin gets laid,” Deveny wrote.

Her defence?

She said she was using satire “to expose celebrity raunch culture and the sexual objectification of women, which is rife on the red carpet”.

    I suspect this is only the last of a long line of vulgar and tasteless ‘satire’.

    Similar to the “I was just kidding” excuse.

    Hmm just a nanosecond of thought should have made her realise that her comment would go down like a lead balloon. A well deserved sacking

    Very much serves her right, why can’t they just let kids be kids.

    I agree with QM here.

    Stupid cow, cos that’s what she is a cow. No normal woman would even joke about that kind of thing. Not even remotely funny.
