Up until now I have chosen not to make Amanda Bailey face of the day as she had stated that she wanted to be anonymous.She is no longer anonymous thanks to her choice to make a joint statement with her employers to the press. Additionally she has kept her facebook page open to the public. Finally she has now gone to the Unite Union and is not only only going after John Key AGAIN but also her employers.
I disagree with her politics but I respected her right to stand up to John Key and be assertive as a good feminist should. It may not have stopped immediately but she did get her message across and he stopped his behaviour, apologised and tried to make amends.Many months later she chose to seek revenge through Wrongly Wrongsons’s blog. Again, though I do not agree with her, if she wanted to try to hurt him politically that was her right.
She has crossed the line now by going to the union. This nonsense about her being powerless must be challenged. Women are not fragile petals and she proved that by stopping him. She also proved that by very calculatedly getting her revenge through Wrongly Wrongson’s Blog. The story has dominated the media and even been talked about overseas. She certainly showed him that she was no mere pig tailed Miss to be taken lightly!
She has had her piece of flesh and John Key has been thoroughly maligned and punished. To now throw her employers under the bus, compounding the damage to their business that she has already caused with her actions, is a bridge too far.
Enough Amanda, enough. You are not only hurting your employers you are making yourself un-employable.
