Artist Many ‘isms’ and ‘ists’ — ie, feminism, fem­i­nists, pa­tri­o­tism, Catholi­cism, Is­lamists, sex­ist, cultist — can sep­a­rate us from each other. This can breed ag­gres­sion.

I don’t need the ti­tle fem­i­nist. Most hu­mans are fair and equal by na­ture. We are all dif­fer­ent, but equally im­por­tant.

Gemma Hussey, ed­u­ca­tion min­is­ter from 1982 to 1987, re­placed names by num­bers on school exam pa­pers, so gen­der wasn’t iden­ti­fi­able any­more. The re­sults lev­elled im­me­di­ately and now . . .

I don’t be­lieve in gen­der quo­tas. I think they should em­ploy for the brains or the brawn that is needed for the job.

Men love gear, gad­gets, cars and kits.

Women love makeup, and bras for their tits.

Sweet teas­ing on both sides is nice, no ob­jec­tion.

Let’s put up all sexes for equal elec­tion.
