Right or Left, there is something scary about people who put the cause above the individual. Take Polly Dunning, who when pregnant felt “sick” at realising she was carrying a boy and was already planning to read him the riot act when he got out.
Congratulations! Polly Dunning finds out that she’s having a boy. Oh, wait, maybe it’s not such good news. Sydney Morning Herald, yesterday:
There were two parts to the feeling: I had to mourn the life I thought I was supposed to have, the elder daughter of my two girls (why do we plan things we cannot control?!), and I had to come to terms with having a relationship with a son that I had never really considered. There were dark moments in the middle of the night (when all those dark thoughts come), when I felt sick at the thought of something male growing inside me.
Girls rule, boys drool — where could she have got that idea? Dunning’s mother, feminist media personality Jane Caro, on Twitter, November 9:
Little girls just remember no matter how hard u work, how high ur marks, u won’t grow up 2be president. Ur lazy brother on the other hand …
This sounds like fun. Dunning continues, coming to terms with not having a daughter, yesterday:
Raising a boy who maintains the status quo sure would be easy, but I refuse to be satisfied with that. I will raise a feminist boy. Just like his father and grandfathers before him, but even better. I will point sexism out to him at every turn, and he will never get away with it without being called out.
