Irish Ass of the Week

“Only one woman is among the top 10 best-paid BBC presenters. Now, why is this? Is it because men are more charismatic performers? Because they work harder? Because they are more driven? Possibly a bit of each. The human resources department — what used to be called “personnel” until people come to be considered as a metabolising, respiring form of mineral ore — will probably tell you that men usually work harder, get sick less frequently and seldom get pregnant.” -Kevin Meyers

Wowie, wow, wow. In this day and age, to see such blatant misogyny and racism, is mind boggling. Yeah, living in the world of Trump, the slugs have come out of their bomb shelters, so hate has been working overtime. But, this guy, Kevin Meyers, is truly the ass of the week, and he's not even an American! Meyers wrote for The Sunday Times of London, until last week, when he was fired for this article. Well, that was great that he was fired, but as others have asked, how did such trash get published? How did it pass the editors eyes? Either the paper never edited Meyer's work, or, they thought it was a great write. I expect more  heads to roll.
