Mining Town Women Don’t Want Their Advantage Nullified

coal-miner2.jpgA bunch of ladies in an Australian mining town, where men outnumber the women 5-1, took umbrage when the mayor advertised that “beauty disadvantaged” women might do well in the town.

Mayor John Molony found himself under attack Monday over comments he made to a local newspaper that read: “May I suggest if there are five blokes to every girl, we should find out where there are beauty-disadvantaged women and ask them to proceed to Mount Isa.”
The mayor added that many women who already live in the remote Queensland state town seem quite happy.
“Quite often you will see walking down the street a lass who is not so attractive with a wide smile on her face,” he continued. “Whether it is recollection of something previous or anticipation for the next evening, there is a degree of happiness.”
The quotes, published Saturday in the Townsville Bulletin, sparked outrage among the town’s female population, led to furious online debates and drew criticism from the local chamber of commerce.

Well, that’s just common sense. If I knew of a town where there were five women to every man, particularly brutish women covered in coal soot, I’d high-tail my ass to that town ASAP. Who doesn’t immediately want to shack up with someone who will leave coal marks on your skin during sex and die at the age of 40 of black lung?
