Ladies: If You’re Ugly And Need A Man, Move To Mount Isa!
Posted by Sara Lewis on August 17, 2008
That’s what Mayor John Molony wants you to believe anyway. Mount Isa, a mining town in northwest Queensland where men outnumber women five to one, is hoping to raise the female quotient with some ‘beauty-disadvantaged’ types:
May I suggest if there are five blokes to every girl, we should find out where there are beauty-disadvantaged women and ask them to proceed to Mount Isa,” Cr Molony said.
Quite often you will see walking down the street a lass who is not so attractive with a wide smile on her face. Whether it is recollection of something previous or anticipation for the next evening, there is a degree of happiness.
Often those who are beauty-disadvantaged are unhappy with their lot.
Some, in other places in Australia, need to proceed to Mount Isa where happiness awaits.
You’re a saintly spirit, aren’t ya John? Taking time out of your busy schedule to help poor ugly girls find a man to solve all their problems! You’re turning ugly girls’ frowns upside down for the good of the country! Because if you’re ugly you must be down at the mouth- you clearly couldn’t have anything else going for you! Oh, John. You haven’t got room for the ‘wrong sort of people‘ (read: Indigenous Australians from the Northern Territory) in The Isa, but you’re certainly prepared to accommodate unhappy ugly girls with intact hymens! Bless you, Mister Mayor!
Thankfully Molony is mostly alone in his views. State MP Betty Kiernan has blasted his remarks as being ‘sexist’ and not representative of Mt Isa at all – and we should certainly hope not.
It’s no wonder there aren’t any women in the area. Regardless of the fact that the number of females in labourer’s jobs is growing only at a snail’s pace, and despite the issue of unequal pay in the field, I’m not sure women would be flocking in droves to live in a city where the Mayor proposes to fix all their problems with a simple injection of cock.
