High On The List Of Things Politicians Shouldn't Do

Meow at female colleagues

Now, that's clearly a jerk, misogynist move. No disagreement there.

However, FLG, despite his very worldly and cosmopolitan ways, can't not giggle at the use of bloke and mate at a hearing. Likewise, watch the lady in the back who is checking her blackberry for her reaction when the guy meows. It's subtle, but priceless.

I'm impressed at the restraint both women show, and a little revolted that they're both required to give dirty looks and then let it go, because a greater reaction would only feed the 'angry cat' insult.

I don't see what's funny about watching a woman be insulted, but then, I'm not a guy.

I think you misunderstand. The restraint the other lady shows is what makes it so priceless. She's like, you're a fucker, but I'm not going to give you the satisfaction.

On the watching a woman being insulted, well, my question is why don't you see what isn't funny about watching a person be insulted?

I'll grant that guys, including myself, are more likely to think that people being insulted is funny, but I certainly don't think it's limited to women. In fact, I think men are more likely find a man being insulted than a woman.
