I take directions from women every day - my wife, my daughters, my chief of staff, other senior members of my office. Look, I am an entirely modern man in this respect.
Tony Abbott’s response to claims he has problems with women who possess power and authority, 2012
You’re such a modern man, Tony. I mean, I could quote stuff you’ve said years and years ago (and I will). But how about we look at some recent examples of you being a ‘modern man’
A modern man who shames women for exercising bodily autonomy.
(There is so much shaming I need to use brackets)
A modern man with modern ideas of consent (read: disgusting ideas of consent).
A modern man who likes to police what women wear.
A modern man who doesn’t support women’s causes.
A modern man who regards feminism, (a movement for political, economic, social, and legal equality for women) as dogma.
Forgive me if I scoff at you, Tony.
