Now in the hands of the lawyers, time will soon tell whether David Leyonhjelm’s insinuations about Sarah Hanson Young – being both promiscuous with men (yes, a slut) and simultaneously a hater of them (yes, a misandrist) – have any basis in fact.
Having since considered the matter carefully, however, Leyonhjelm’s allegations seem to me now to be totally absurd, a complete contradiction in terms. Because, taken together with her parliamentary remarks, as I understand it, SHY/Shagalot (you be the judge) is suffering from some kind of sexual, cognitive dissonance whereby she is more than happy to be screwed by those who she hates and believes to be consummate rapists (all men). So, I don’t buy it for one moment.
Unless, of course, her (alleged) extra-curricular activities serve some sort of ulterior motive. For example, one that is carefully contrived – and I’m speculating here – to couple her sound, Green credentials with a warm-hearted, forgiving and generous, open-legs policy towards men – regardless of their alleged crimes – in order to make her more popular with male voters.
The problem is, for the 90% remaining sensible part of the population, that would make her out to be a shameless slut. A shameless slut, prone to mouthing hysterical gibberish at taxpayers’ expense every time she stands up in Parliament. But my lawyers tell me to say that I don’t buy that one either.
I’ll leave it up to the courts to decide, but my guess is that Leyonhjelm’s going to be suddenly short of a few quid sometime soon ….
Or, WILL he …?
