Check out this horrendous advert from an Australian news channel about ladies who dare not to want children. (thanks to [livejournal.com profile] dingogrrl for the link. Wow. The sinister voice over really gives it that extra something. I sense some highly selective editing going on here in the quotes used...

As dingogrrl said, where's the programme about MEN choosing not to have kids?

Excellent question. I'm a bit disappointed with Australia :/ They're usually quite awesome.

My other half thinks this cant be real and its tongue in cheek to draw people in.

Been trying to work out if 7news is considered a right wing channel. Really want to see this show just to know for sure.

I did wonder because it is SO ridiculous, but dingogrrl reckons it's par for the course for network telly there so I really don't know. It's certainly tapping into what a lot of people think about women who choose not to have kids :/

The full report is up, can't tell the angle yet though.... It seems quite even-handed so far. Their quotes in the trailer are SOOOO out of context though.

Yes, I'm getting a strong vibe of 'group of women who want to ban all children,' from that video.
