    Here is one of the text messages,

    “LUCY is very available and keen! Could turn you from your wayward ways,” he texted to his gay advisor James Ashby.

    That’s kind of homophobic and sexist in just two sentences. There are hundreds of offensive messages like this one.

    ”I understand why people, particularly women, would be offended by these statements and I unreservedly apologise for them,’ Peter Slipper says after resigning.

    Now Gillard is standing there as the feminist who defended him. But sure, she has a pair alright.
