I had an interesting thing happen to me…

…and while I can’t give specifics on this, I had a situation today where someone tried to bully me into toeing their line. They used their dislike of Aussies to do it. That’s right - they used the word ‘hate’ in relation to Aussies. Now you can say what you like about me – I couldn’t give a crap but when you insult my country then naturally I’m going to get a little – okay – a lot pissed...very pissed.

I have faced sexism before but never racism. This gave me a very, very, small insight into how those who are bullied by racists feel. Naturally I fought back because I was in the position to do so. Many are not. How many people deal with this crap every day on a more threatening basis and are in no position to stand up?

Racists? Well - you suck. There’s no other phrase that fits. Attack my country? I don’t think so. Back off, Sunshine.

Shows considerable lack of taste on their part, mate.
Aussies are the cat's meow.
