Whatcha talking ’bout Genter?

I know the Green party are known for being crazy weird strange a little different from the norm when it comes to both their politicians and their policies but Julie Anne Genter recently said something so bizarre that I think she should get some kind of hippy award for sheer dippiness.

We have had a Green co-leader pose on paint cans and fight battles dressed in costume outside her own personal castle so we have come to expect the unexpected from Green MPs. However, Julie Anne Genter may prove in time to be even more dippy than Metiria Turei.

Metiria Turei on Twitter: “@kyhwana this is my castle. It was being stormed that day by smelly swampy hordes.

Have a think about what things you consider to be feminist issues. Here are a few that immediately sprang to my mind as feminist issues:

  • the division of domestic labour in the home
  • violence against women
  • religion if it teaches that a woman has lesser value than a man
  • female genital mutilation (FGM)
  • breastfeeding
  • sex-selective abortion
  • stalking and harassment

Julie Anne Genter is the Minister for Women and you will never in a month of Sundays guess what she has declared to be a feminist issue.

That’s right, your eyes are not deceiving you. Genter thinks that footpaths are a feminist issue.

Next, she will be telling us that toilet paper is a feminist issue and that bikes are a feminist issue.

I mean, what’s with that bar down the middle on men’s bikes? What is that all about?
