    Aussie Males 'Going Soft'


    Australia's long-celebrated "blokes" are turning into "metrosexual knobs", a former opposition leader of the country has warned.

    Mark Latham said that the nation's males are suffering an identity crisis thanks to leftwing feminists and neo-conservatives.

    Australia has prided itself on the image of its unreconstructed male as a no-nonsense, beer-guzzling, crocodile-wrestling kind of a man.

    Crocodile Dundee and 'Crocodile Hunter', the late Steve Irwin, are seen as typical Aussie males.

    But Mr Latham says that's all changed - and he's not happy.

    Writing in his new book, the former Labour leader says: "One of the saddest things I have seen in my lifetime has been the decline in Australian male culture.

    "Australian mates and good blokes have been replaced by nervous wrecks, metrosexual knobs and tossbags."


    From beefcake to fairycake? Mardi Gras reveller
    He says Aussie man's decline has been accompanied by an erosion of the Aussie language.

    "Instead of calling a spade a spade, our national conversation is now dominated by weasel words and the pretence of politeness," he said.

    "Few people have anything meaningful to say for fear of offending the conservative status quo."

    He laments the Australian language's loss of the "larrikin" - a word used to describe a fun-loving trouble-maker who bucks authority and conventions.

    Mr Latham's use of the Australian language, and his own "larrikin" behaviour has got him into trouble in the past.

    He is seen as the most verbally abusive politician to ever speak in Parliament and broke a Sydney taxi driver's arm in a beer-fuelled fare dispute in 2001.

    He once described US President George Bush as "the most incompetent and dangerous president in living memory".

    Well he got that right,so he cant be a bad bloke.
     
  3. I think the basic Aussie male hasn't changed much -its just that the media is so full of the benders news grabbing speeches /parades /fashion shows
    the real Aussie just lets them get on with it.

    Like the Bush description!! :lol: :lol:
     
  4. Hey man, there never was an Aussie male image. It was just a co-operative business venture to portray and sell shit Aussie beer in the UK. Having said that, Fosters is palatable. :wink:
     
  5. I think we just found a serious candidate to replace Blair. Sounds like he could give prezza a good thumping too. How do we get in touch with him? :lol:

  6. Hope that was an ironic wink!!
     
  7. Wouldn't it just be a breath of fresh air to have a real man in government?
    We had a corrupt bum bandit in power here till the army took over, beers to the boys in green. Return of the chest thumping man, survival of the fittest Hoooyah!
    Beer and a scrap anyone?
