A Conservative Magazine Has Deleted A Letter Which Suggested “You Don’t Win A Debate With Your Boobs Hanging Out”

“Real men don’t insult and threaten women,” Hanson-Young said. “They don’t slut-shame them and they don’t attack them and make them feel bullied in their workplace.”

‘Watching Question Time and ABC analysis and wanting to pull my eyes out,” read the letter, claiming to be from a female reader. “If SHY wants to be taken seriously why is she wearing a dress in the Senate that looks like she’s on her way to a Christmas party?

“Any woman with anything upstairs knows you don’t win a debate with your boobs hanging out.”

“It’s 2018 for heavens sake,” Hanson-Young said. “The suggestion that a woman’s opinion is not valid because of the way she dresses is as out of touch as it is offensive.

“Australian politics is having its #metoo moment and it can’t come soon enough. Women on all side of politics are standing up for ourselves and parliament will be better for it.”

The Spectator has been contacted for comment.
