    Unless of course the majority of Tasmanian men are "rich and well-hung"?!
    how would that "eliminate voters" without including women?

    are you saying she wouldn't want to have sex with these voters and therefore they wouldn't VOTE for her?

    That's a first in history, isn't it?
    Pity it wasn't about something important..

    Some people on this planet think that their penis and their money are pretty important.

    In which case there might be a surge in the number of female tourists visiting Tasmania.

    I was talking about this particular instance. Given the questions posed to her and the general tone of the interview, how was she disrespectful again? This seems to be all about insecure men and their tiny little ... egos.

    The problem would be in how the hypothetical male politician said it. I don't want to give an example, but we can all imagine.

    In the context of the interview, it was obviously a joke made to cover her being put on the spot about her relationship status, and I don't think she has anything to apologize for. If a man were in the identical situation, as long as he played it tongue in cheek like she did, and didn't use offensive or denigrating language, I don't think I'd be offended.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    In this particular instance is she not making sexual comments to strangers in a public setting? Do you do that? Talk about guys being well hung. It has nothing to do with insecurity and everything to do with sounding like trash. You don't find that disrespectful? I might be sitting there watching my favourite morning show with my daughters and here she comes making those comments and you don't find that inappropriate? Not sure that you and I have talked much about anything in the past but it sounds like you need to rethink your morals and get a better understanding of etiquette because what she did is trashy.

    You're certainly entitled to your own opinion on the matter. Doesn't change mine.

    Sure. And yours is incorrect, childish and disrespectful towards men that think her comments are inappropriate...
