“On what should have been one of the proudest days of Gillard’s political career, she bungled it with a less than flattering haircut and a frumpy ’80s tapestry print jacket… Get yourself a stylist your own age.” – Anita Quigley- Daily Telegraph
“I mean anyone who chooses to remain deliberately barren… they’ve got no idea what life’s about.” Senator Bill Heffernan.
“Juliar Bob Brown’s Bitch” “Burn the Witch”. Placards at anti-carbon tax Rally
“You’ve got a big arse, Julia, just get on with it.” Germaine Greer – ABC, Q&A.
Here’s a few of the insults thrown towards our former Prime Minister Julia Gillard over the years. Below is a video that showcases more of what Julia Gillard had to endure in her time as Prime Minister.
So here at BULLSH!T, we’re throwing it over to you. What do you think of the treatment of Julia Gillard? Do you think it was unfair? Do you really not give a shit? Do you think the misogyny angle was used too much? Do you think it was absolutely disgusting?
The general consensus from the BS team is whether a supporter of Gillard or not, the comments made about her appearance and other factors that had nothing to do with politics, were absolutely disgusting. Was this simply because she’s a woman? Or is there more to it than that?
We’d love to hear your opinions.
