I don't find it patronizing at all.
I think that all too often, women who want to be taken seriously..( and which women doesn't - lets be honest) ... tend to feel an element of pressure to de-sexualize themselves. Find an unflattering, and an as 'conservative as possible suit', and erase any overt evidence of that female gender... 'man up'
Find a top that flattens the breast area, and a skirt that flattens the butt.
Is a pink Bus stereotyping women?.. maybe , maybe not..
There are women.. ( like me ) .. who quite like Pink.
and quite frankly...we deserve to be catered for dammit!.
Politics will be a turn off to many women, as many women have children, and the hours are often unsociable and not child or family friendly at all. We need a more honest discussion with regards to gender, and the differences that exist between men and women. It's easier for men to immerse themselves in thier careers, and the male dominated arena of politics, because more often than not they have a wife at home, cooking dinner, and taking care of the children.
I will refrain from saying that the men who walk the corridors of Westminister think they are the dogs nuts.. and believe they know it all. ( which is a turn off.. unlike a Pink Bus!)
Even if it were true.. I wouldn't say it :)
So just what's wrong with a pink bus?
Imagine if it smells good too!
You see.. that's what wrong with politics.
That creative flair is missing. Some of us want more style, more panache.
Cha...we women want nice things!.
Yes .. ALL of us.
.. and we are fed up trying to pretend otherwise.
You know what?
beer tastes like fart most of the time
we like to sit in the passenger seat of a nice car
we care about our friends and family
we may talk too much on the phone ( but if people actually listened 'real time' maybe that wouldn't be the case!)
housework sucks shite but we do it anyway
we want romance
we have a love hate relationship with politics
and a pink
Just how easy do you think we are?..
ermm .. any juice on that bus? snacks?.. yeah everyone like free snacks.. free smoke alarm?, mugs?.. perfume samples?
We can't be bought !!
I see the Bus says woman to woman
But if you really want the involvement of women, you don't wait until election year to focus your efforts.
Or would you?
What's interesting is what many people think a woman , or women, may bring to the table; Care, understanding , patience, .. all these wonderful qualities.. sugar and spice and all things nice..
That's what little girls are made of.. right?
let me tell you... some women are harder than men
e.g A woman needs to be made of strong stuff to be able to cut off the clitoris of another woman. that's deep.
yep.. Women are very diverse..
