Molony: Australian for "misogyny".

The mayor of a two-mule town in the Outback announces "Come to Mount Isa, where even ugly Sheilas can get laid!", and then appears baffled at the negative feedback.

Sometimes the jokes write themselves...

What's so delectable is the tiptoe-round-the-tulips way he parsed it-- "beauty-disadvantaged."

political correctness: ur doin it wrong.

How exactly is that misogynistic? Certainly not politically correct (oh noes!), but I fail to see any hate (real hate, not "don't be hatin' on me" hate) towards women conveyed.

No hate there, just spreading the love to the Plain Janes, the Average Annies, and the Boring Betties.

Did anyone check to see of the mayor has a financial interest in the local Beer-goggle emporium?

I question the outrage - You hot chicks are discriminating against other women, creating a stratified society, a world of Hot vs Not.

This Mayor has a Dream, where a woman is judged by the content of her character not by the way she fills her skin. Only a lookist would not agree!

Or maybe it is more of a hatred towards men, wanting to keep desperate guys from getting something, anything, just a little, can I at least look at it Please....

Either way it must stop, ugly chicks and ignorant mulletheads deserve a chance to release their pent-up energies and if they do it in a rathole town in OZ, there is nothing wrong with that, as long as they do not force me to watch!

Oz is about 10 years behind the US in political correctness. UK before Blair tended about the same, but I'd say probably is only 5 years behind US in PC these days.

A waste of perfectly good air. Even if a woman had two heads and three arms, all she need do to get laid is show up naked with a six-pack of beer :P

You know, they say pretty much the same thing around here: "Fayetteville, NC - where even the fat chicks can be choosy."

Of course, it's not the mayor that's saying it.

I really hate this, I always arrive late and find others have made my point for me.
Y'ever notice how the less than totally gorgeous have a loveliness of behavior that is sometimes lacking in the actual beauty contestants and supermodels?

And considering OUR mayor has put our town on the map and allowed everyone to re-cycle their Michael Jackson jokes, I can't speak to rough-hewn Aussie honesty.....
