    More subtle misandry at the abc.

    Ok. This: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2022-11-...cost/101643372

    The people at Mt Isa are finding transport a struggle. Ok: cool, legit.

    Context: Mt Isa was basically made out of iron ore, and is currently a vast pit surrounded by a mining town. Here's a pic: https://goo.gl/maps/417JrT4oMnmQEqH37 . Mt Isa is an important regional centre in Queensland. It's in the outback: red dirt, no trees.

    The story starts off legit:
    Ms Lee-Nichols does not have a car and is one of about 20,000 residents in the rural Queensland city of Mount Isa who do not have access to public transport.
    "I pay upwards of $13 each way just to go and pick up my groceries, drop the kids at school or go to medical appointments," the mother-of-eight said.
    In a region where annual temperatures average 32 degrees Celsius and reach into the low 40s during summer, walking a small distance can be a difficult and sometimes dangerous exercise.
    "When I do walk, it takes us hours in the hot sun and it's not good for the kids," she said.
    But then: where's hubby? Why no car? And of course: you know the answer. Single mum. No money because she does not engage in productive labour.
    "I have to go without a lot. The kids miss out on a lot."I can't keep doing it, I just don't think it's fair."
    It's not fair. You know, the more you read these stories, the more you start to notice that refrain, over and over. "It's not fair!"
    But of course, this story isn't just about one person. It's about Mt Isa in general. You know, all the people.
    Kaitlin Griffin is a family support coordinator for the Mount Isa Ngukuthati Children & Family Centre.She helps local families who are struggling by transporting clients to the grocery store or school and medical appointments using the organisation's vans.
    But their resources are limited and Ms Griffin is calling for state funding for local transport options.
    Ok, sure another woman. This one working in welfare. I wonder just how many of those "local families" are single mothers with kids?
    "The fact that a lot of kids are missing out on going to school because they simply can't get there is really not fair."We are depriving people of their basic rights because we don't have the transport to be able to help these people."
    It's not fair, you see. Notice the twist: the problem isn't that other people don't have transport; the problem is that she - the welfare worker - doesn't have transport. As usual, what matters is herself and her own personal world.
    "It's quite clear there's a side to Mount Isa that has a lot more money and opportunity than the other side," she said.
    "One side gets money put into it and the other just gets forgotten about.
    They just don't understand how money works, do they? The "other side" isn't "getting money put into it": that other side is making money. By working. Mining. But women seem to think that money just materializes in men's pockets because The Universe, or the government, or someone, is just being unfair.
    Anyway. What should be done to address this?
    Ms Griffin is calling for state funding for local transport options.
    Free money from the government, obviously. "Ms", you notice - another strong, empowered woman.
    And ... and that's it. That's the story. But where's the misandry? Well, where are the menz? It's simple: they don't matter.
    Not a single male voice anywhere, not a soupçon of reason, not a hint of an idea that people ought to work for a living, or that maybe pumping out kids you can't afford to feed is a bad idea. I mean - maybe these people do in fact have jobs, but that is neither here nor there as far as this article is concerned.
    Two people interviewed. One of them a professional social worker. Who wrote this?
    It took three women to write this. Three. One, two, three.

    I was thinking about this the other say, you know. What is the root of the whine "It's not fair!"? Envy. But that's another post in itself.

    Fuck the ABC.

    I have ZERO sympathy for 'em.
    They made their beds, now it's time for them to sleep in it.

    To the wimmens: Quit spreading your legs and get to work doing something productive.
    THAT will lead you out of poverty faster than whining about it will. Suck it up, pumpkin.
    As MGTOW, resistance to the collective is NOT futile.
    Don't let yourself be assimilated and become a mindless zombie supporting and submitting to any woman.
    They will ultimately destroy you.

    “Fair” was a word invented so children thought they could participate in adult conversations. It’s meaningless.

    Give that woman a car and you'll find it and her 8 kids at the bottom of that flooded section of iron quarry.
    Bundle up, boys, it's gonna be a long cold endless winter.

    The single moms could go online and organize a car pool. A single mom with a car could drive three other single women to and from the grocery store, and they would all pay her for gas/trouble. It would we way cheaper than taking a taxi. The driver would get a little extra money, the women could socialize, and they would get their shopping done without hefty taxi fees.

    But, see, I'm thinking like a man. I think of solutions instead of bitching about shit.

    That's a small pit, so not Iron ore... Copper, lead, zinc, and silver is/was mined in Mount Isa.

    Mount Isa Mines - Wikipedia

    Isa is always in the running for the "Shittest town of Australia"... Yes, there is a competition to be the worst...

    If it's so expensive to live there move to a cheaper place? No because there is money and they still want the top 10%er male to care for them and the 8 kids... More chance of winning lotto...

    Work: I have not checked Seek for job adds.... But, likely starter rates for U/G truck driver will be AUD$60 - 70k per year for an even time roster. Good money for a steering wheel attendant. Up and down, don't run over anyone, and dump in the right spot... Oh, ya you have to show up and work for it... Easier being on "Mother's Allowance" and plan your kids around the 5 yr interval so you don't have to work...

    Jobs in Mount Isa QLD 4825 - SEEK

    312 jobs listed. She will not be qualified for all of them. Likely more employers have given up advertising because no one will apply. It's tough for some employers to compete against the mines...

    There's probably no one with a driver's license in her circle of friends, let alone a car.

    For the money their spending they could figure something out, there's always a better way. But that's how men look at things. They'll continue to set on their ass till the end of time.

    If there was a bus, they'd probably think it was beneath them since others were driving cars.

    Re: More subtle misandry at the abc.

    The press is full of activist journalists rather than people reporting on issues. Of course it took 3 women to write this, because they never intended to 'report on a story' but rather shine a light on an issue that THEY feel needs attention (translation: money for some of their sisters). It's another media sponsored guilt trip to get the government to write a check. The problem is that the word "NO" seems to be in short supply, especially when it comes to women complaining.
