Virtue-signalling, privileged white women need to ‘move on’


What is wrong with this photograph?

Take a close look at the above photograph. Can you see what is wrong with it? It is pretty obvious, isn’t it? There is a distinct lack of diversity in that photo. What a New Zealand-based political party needs to maintain real diversity, is to get all the privileged white women (from overseas as well as the ones who are homegrown) to ‘move on’.

I am sad to say that New Zealand is full of privileged white women, young, middle-aged and old, who have a vote and if you don’t vote, you know who will: all those privileged white women and they don’t care about the rest of us. Some of them may even be rich (giggle) and we don’t want rich, privileged, virtue-signalling white women having all the say, now do we?

Of course we don’t. Everyone knows that young, brown immigrants (preferably from Muslim countries) make much better virtue signallers. You get so much more bang for your diversity buck when you ‘move on’ privileged virtue-signalling white women to make way for privileged virtue-signalling women like the inarticulate but charmingly brown Golriz Ghahraman.

This woman is a star. Look at how many vital diversity boxes she ticks.

  • She calls herself a refugee, which get her mega bonus points.
  • She is from an oppressive patriarchal Muslim country, which makes her a victim.
  • She has taken advantage of the freedoms and benefits of Western culture to become a human rights lawyer (double mega bonus points).
  • She has used her skills to defend victims of human rights abuses defend the human rights of a man who incited genocide.

Privileged white women need to ‘move on’ from political parties like the Greens to help close the female gender pay gap. The Greens in particular need to address the lower level of diverse female representation inside the Green party if the Green party are ever to be led by co-leaders who are both diverse women. About 85 percent of Green party members are currently female, and many are old or middle-aged white women. Some of them need to move on and allow for diversity and new talent, although I do wish to emphasise that I have had no problem with old white women in the Greens, generally.

I told about 60 students recently that it was hard to address the female gender pay gap, in part because diverse female employees were often unaware of what their white female colleagues earned for the same work.

Before I entered politics I learned that a white female colleague who was brought in after me was being paid more than me, even though I was bringing in more work.

I was going into [salary] negotiations saying, “Do you really want to pay me that much?” Of course, she asked for a lot more and got it because that is what privileged white women do (not that I have got anything against old white women, of course).
