Public Service Message For My Friends

Libertarianism, science fiction fandom … aaah, life is good (and often very flattering) when you’re a woman who shares such male-dominated interests. Though it has on occasion led to some serious disagreements ’twixt me and my friends:

THEM: Blah blah gripe gripe gripe what a goddamned sausage party this is turning out to be.

ME: (innocently) You say it like it’s a bad thing.

Joking, of course. I feel for you guys. So I thought I’d share some news I found on the BBC, which reports that Australia is suffering from a “man drought”:

An analysis of new census figures has shown that Australia is suffering from an unprecedented "man drought".

The statistics have revealed that there are almost 100,000 more females than males in Australia.

The problem is worse in the coastal cities, where women have moved seeking better jobs and lifestyles, while many men have gone overseas. ... Major cities in Australia now have concentrated groups of unattached women, along with dwindling numbers of the opposite sex.

The Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship can be contacted here.

You’re welcome.

A couple of days ago, one of the guys in the office was carrying on about some girl on girl site from Australia. Now it makes sense.

Fortunately there's a shitload of extra males in China. I'm not really sure how that exchange can be worked out though.

I see a rowboat full of buff guys in police uniforms landing on those sandy beaches and saying in a husky voice "we got a complaint about the noise..."

The question one must ask is why did the men all leave? Perhaps the women are bitchy. Not sure I'd want to move across the ocean and find out that the drought is a self inflicted curse...

They've left the country in search of jobs, CL. And here's a true fact: I'm given to understand that Australian women LIKE American men. The Australian man's mentality is stuck in the spaghetti-Western stage; simply holding a door open for an Australian woman will make her swoon.

And they LIKE American accents, too.

That's what I heard about Russian women too. Their men were supposed to be all drunks and assholes so they were signing up to get American husbands to they could be treated like queens.

Problem is most of the guys who were willing to go through all the crap to get it done wern't the royal treatment type. They were the kind who couldn't get an American woman to hook up with them. You know, social misfits, assholes and other non desireables. No personality, just money and an internet connection.
