Hey Project, AM Show and Seven Sharp, how can you shame us overseas tomorrow?
It embarrasses me as a broadcaster, as a man & as a citizen that in 2017 a female politician would be asked if she’s having kids.
I don’t care if Jacinda has a child while being Prime Minister.
I care what she will do for the 41 000 homeless, the 305 000 kids in poverty, the 550 000 NZers enduring extreme hardship, the 1600 NZers who die from the cold each year, the 1500 unofficial deaths from suicide, the 10 000 in prison and the generations locked out of home ownership.
Whether she has a baby or not while she is dealing with those issues is of zero fucking interest to me.
I’m just staggered that this was the bloody issue male broadcasters believed was the most pressing topic of debate.
It looks like we don’t need to just change the Government in September, we need to change the media as well.
