In Topic: What if New Zealand won again?

Today, 12:45 PM

NZL would bring it into an area of sailing where they have a competitive advantage, namely big breeze and a seaway.

It will be mono if they win, I suspect canting and foils (DSS, IMCO 60).

But, hey!  If the right gets its way, no more birth control, which would be kind of a buzz kill.  Lysistrata redux a la Taliban?

 

Loving the pink hats...

Donald Trump: Women's marches in Australia, New Zealand launch post-inauguration protests

Updated 17 minutes ago

Post-inauguration women's marches in Australia and New Zealand have launched a global human rights event expected to attract over 2 million people worldwide.

Women's March Global, a movement sparked by a march in Washington timed to coincide with Donald Trump's first day in office as US President, said 673 sister walks were planned worldwide.

An estimated 2.2 million people were expected to take part in the events across seven continents, including Antarctica.

The aim of the headline march in Washington on Sunday (local time) is to send a "bold message" to the new government and the world that "women's rights are human rights".

The women, men and children at the rallies are uniting to protest against what they say is the threat Mr Trump's policies pose to the political vulnerable.

These groups include women, religious and racial minorities, LGBTI communities, people with disabilities and survivors of sexual assault.

Thousands march in Sydney and Melbourne

At least 3,000 marchers gathered at Hyde Park in Sydney before marching towards the US consulate.

"Feminism is my Trump card" and "fight like a girl," were among the placards held by marchers.

"We're not marching as an anti-Trump movement per se, we're marching to protest the hate speech, the hateful rhetoric, the misogyny, the bigotry, the xenophobia and we want to present a united voice with women around the globe," organiser Mindy Freiband said.

US singer-songwriter Amanda Palmer, Wiradjuri elder Jenny Munro and social commentator and writer Jane Caro are among the women who will appear at the Sydney march.

Caro told the crowd: "I don't hate anyone, but I'm not fond of Donald Trump."

 

 

 

 

Oh the outrage! So all the whining minorities, snowflakes and LGBTIalphabet types are going for a walk in Melbourne because they don't like someone who was elected via an open and free election in another country? 

Do I smell the strong stench of double standard, or is it the hairy armpit deodorant free lefties? I bet the ABC will there in droves, don't forget your rainbow flag.

Tell me sisters, can we get a refund on the $88 million AUD that Julia gifted to the Clinton foundation?

 

Dunno who you are fucktard, but If you'd got off your undoubtedly fat arse you would have seen that the vast majority of people there today were just ordinary Melbournians...we don't like pussy grabbing bullies much down here. 

 

 

Ordinary Melbournians? Not really like the rest of Australia then.

I bet you even voted for that Nick Z clown or worse yet one those metropolitan Greenies. Oh the outrage.

Have a kale smoothie, and settle down, your little walk around the block with your 'sisters' and the special LGBTIalphabet bunch achieved nothing more than wearing out your fair trade sensible brown shoes. I don't think you've too much to worry about in the pussy graping department Mel.    

Now, is there a chance your sisters could get that $88 million back that Julia gave the Clintons, I believe you know the couple, the married President who slid a cigar into the interns internals and then lied about it.

I've no love for the nanny state PC police, but the phrase "Boat Nigger" just doesn't sit right

 

 

'Red shirts' is far more offensive.

Stay by the phone, Sarah Hanson-Young should call shortly.

 

I'm not offended, just strikes me as phrase well out of place for conversation today. 

particularly coming off the biggest even in Australian sailing (from a media/public point of view anyway) from the winning boat. 

 

I'm not about to file 18c or lose any sleep over it, more the point it's not a real good look for sailing.

or Loyal for that matter.
