      Also – it looks like she’s been reading text messages before pretending to talk on the phone.

    i can’t wait to see how much taxpayer money is wasted on this faeces show in terms of legal challenges. Lol. Only in Ireland would you hear something so pathetically stupid. Not surprised it’s Ireland. If there was a world cup for the country with the most inept incompetent scrotes we would win that every year.

    And the barristers will bend that taxpayer over again and give a good show for the hundreds of thousands they will cream from the trough with their dirty filthy scummy snouts

      In fairness Ron, we’d be too incompetent to win that world cup. We’d probably mess up our entry form or something.

      1. Ron

        How is it possible that decision makers in this country don’t just display their incompetence and ineptitude once a month. Every day these scummy filthy spoofer scrotes display their absolute incompetence at everything they touch! Lol. Every day!!!! it’s only January 3 and there has been this much already! It’s mind boggling how the Irish have an ability to appoint the dumbest idiots we have on this island to positions of power. is it any wonder all of you are so daw jawed when this is the example that’s been set for you.

          In fairness
          Mary Mitchell etc has never been shy about her incompetence or her ineptitude
          She regularly disclosed same
          And far more frequently than monthly
          For all to see and witness

          So credit where credit is due Ron
          Now c’mon
          At least give her that

          1. Ron

            This latest idea is not new and she has been talking about this lunacy since 2018


            I don’t really care about women being appointed to these posts on the basis of gender so long as they at least appoint someone with an IQ above 70. 70 is achievable considering that’s someone classed as having borderline mental disability. They need to start setting an unachievable bar on the general intelligence required of staff in Irish colleges.

            The real elephant in the room here is how the absolute fock someone like MMOC can get elected. Ya all remember the time she actually drove her car down the plinth on Leinster House? That’s what you all elected! Take a good look! She shouldn’t be allowed near cutlery that isn’t plastic never mind putting her in charge of education! It’s no wonder she has come up with this absolute nonsense. How she is able to walk down the street and look people in the eye knowing how utterly dumb and stupid her actions have been. She is actually so stupid she diesnt even see the lunacy of what she is proposing. Lol.

            And the daw jawed Irish electorate voted for that!!!! More than once!!!! Lol. If her brains were dynamite there wouldn’t be enough to blow her head of. I imagine one would see 2 quick poofs of smoke come out her ears as her brain ignites.

            The political freashow in the banana republic is off to a flying start. We’re only 3 days in and look at the ineptitude in those 72 hours.

        Actually I have written a 3,000 page manifesto, which I have circulated to all my male colleagues, showing scientifically and rationally and with citations that men are just simply less suited to being professors than women. They seem angry about it but that’s just because the male mind is very emotional and not very scientific.

    1. newsjustin

      Anyone identifying as a woman, I assume. As is the progressive way. Gentlemen academics….you know what to do.

  2. Zaccone

    Completely ridiculous. I’m all for ensuring application/interview processes are monitored to make sure theres no gender bias, ie that everything is equal and fair. But mandating positions go to any sex (or race, or species) just means the best candidate won’t get the job.

    I can’t see it holding up legally either, so its just going to waste educational institutions money lining the pockets of legal eagles. How would MMOC not have received legal advice on this stating as much?

    1. Spaghetti Hoop

      Incredibly stupid of MMOC.
      Organisations can state that female applicants are encouraged to apply but they cannot discriminate based on gender.
      Most capable candidate should qualify and it’s as simple as that.
      There’s a triumphant sniggering by so-called feminists in response to this initiative which I abhor.

  3. Madam X

    For a person who cant find their way out of the Dail car park without driving down the plinth, its par for her course. .Sadly she doesnt know the government’s current discrimination laws .

  4. NobleLocks

    Profoundly obtuse.

    I’m looking forward to all of the men identifying as women to get the jobs and then being told that they’re not women therefore they can’t apply and then the insane SJW’s will go mental as that’s all they know how to do an call her a “TRANSPHOBE!!!!!!!” while refusing to listen to Any alternative opinion.

    It’ll be great to watch the feminists squirm under the weight of that too.


    1. millie vanilly strikes again

      I think you’ll find most people with a functioning brain disagree with this kind of measure. This is another typically short sighted and ill planned stunt by our great leaders; equality can never be truly achieved in this manner. All it serves is to create further division.

      I’d be ashamed to call myself a feminist and think that this is a good move.

      1. NobleLocks

        Don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge fan of real feminism, first and second wave and actively support Posie Parker amongst others. It’s the 3rd and 4th wave insane left wing nutjobs who I want to see squirm.

      2. Spaghetti Hoop

        With you there Milly. I think this government just want to be No.1 in meaningless global rankings lately. Highest number of female professors, most likes on Trip Advisor for urban white-water rafting experience. Gah.

  5. Daisy Chainsaw

    Well done showcasing an angry racist. Were there no other angry tweets to latch onto, other than some wagon who doesn’t accept cheek from non irish?

    1. Vermicious Knid

      Agreed. Reading her other tweets I’m surprised BS chose to gift her this attention. She calls for the mass deportation of all non Irish.

  6. Ron

    That’s the way it should work in ant normal functioning democracy where political filth bags aren’t allowed advance their incredibly daw jawed ideas. They are the cancer on the body politic in every way.

    Ireland’s laws prohibit discrimination on a number of grounds including gender, and the creation of positions that would be closed to male applicants may appear to contravene that.  
    The Higher Education Authority and the Department of Education, say, however that legal advice says the proposal would be allowable under Irish law. 
    In the Netherlands a man took a case to that country’s Institute for Human Rights, claiming that the creation of woman-only posts breached his right to equality, but the institute ruled that this was an acceptable positive-action measure. 

  7. Ringsend Incinerator

    What does the Government’s legal advisor, the Attorney General make of this? It’s clearly electioneering. It would take longer to mount a constitutional challenge. And looking at the list of institutions and positions it is clearly gerrymandered not to offend any women already in those departments. So, when they pop their clogs, the list will need to be expanded.

    My binpeople are all male and it’s 2020 – we need more quotas all the way down – more power to ye girls! Re-balance!

    They should do quotas for the leaving cert/points race too.

    1. Lilly

      It’s a little- known fact that the olfactory nerve in the male is not as well developed as that of the female, making them less likely to be rendered unconscious by the smell of a bin lorry. How’s that for biological determinism.
