Lewd Liberal losers

Posted by Cate on May 22, 2009

The Young Liberals are at it again with a website of photographs of ‘sexy’ Liberal women.

The purpose of the site, according to creator Tim Andrews, was to recruit more men into the Liberal Party on the basis of the calibre of its women.

“To put it simply, we have all the hot girls,” the Washington-based blogger and member of the Ashfield branch of the Young Liberals wrote.

“Well, judge for yourself. I present to you the conservative and libertarian girls of Australia!”

What followed was a gallery of University Liberal Club women, one dressed in lingerie and others in provocative poses and bikinis according to The Daily Telegraph

This reminds me of my time at University with a Liberal Party women’s officer who wanted to bring back a Miss University competition and who auctioned off the campus Women’s Room message book with the details of all the women who’d signed up for a ‘surviving rape’ workshop.

It’s a shame that the Daily Telegraph had to extend the pathetic sexism by reproducing the photographs of the women from the website.

    This is just fucking ridiculous.
    and totally counterproductive.
    And insulting.
    and so many other words laced with rage I can’t even type for at the moment.
    (what the young liberals are doing, not the post :p)

    There’s many reasons I no longer work at a particular university….such practices were not uncommon.
