MP backs mayor's ugly woman invite


www.theaustralian.news.com.au

A CALL for "beauty-disadvantaged women" to consider moving to Mt Isa to rectify the mining town's gender imbalance has won the backing of the area's federal MP.

Mayor John Moloney is under fire from residents of his north-west Queensland town after he suggested unattractive women move there to find a man.

I thought this was weird and alternative enough to post. Needless to say there was outrage at the comments being sexist etc. But there is a hugely disproportionate number of men in mount isa and not enough women. Mining pays really well too these days so they are loaded with cash

Where is the sexism here? It just seems like a practical idea to me.

To men it sounds fine although every woman who has commented on this to me has been a little incensed by it. It kind of intimates that they need men to be desperate to have a chance.

well, of course. They aren't advertising for supermodels to go there, they are appealing to those more homely women who are having troubles with love.

I'm sure they'd appeal to men if it was a particularly large gay community. Nothing sexist about it, just more PC "oh no, you said that!" reactions...

It worked for California during the Gold Rush days and Cali isn't exactly known for ugly women today...shallow women with a very narrow world view perhaps. But not for ugly.

Cool. Good luck to the men in Mount Isa and the women looking to move there!
