NZ Human Rights Commission can’t count

Do you think that it is appropriate for the NZ Human Rights Commission to comment on the cabinet of the new French President? They have described it as gender-balanced when in reality the man who married the much older teacher who seduced him at 15 has surrounded himself with women and appointed only one man.

France’s new president appointed a ‘gender-balanced’ cabinet.


If the genders of the people in the cabinet were reversed no one at the Human Rights Commission or anywhere else would refer to it as a gender-balanced cabinet. How sexist is it to call the cabinet balanced when women are clearly the majority at eleven to two. What a disgrace. The media and the Human Rights Commission should not get away with spreading this lie. Black is not white, up is not down and eleven women and two men is NOT a gender-balanced cabinet. It is a female-dominated cabinet led by a man who is comfortable deferring to older women.
