ABC: “Should We Have Paid Period Leave?”

Martina MarkotaRebel Contributor

ABC is asking whether or not women should have paid period leave. Five days a month – a whole work week – should be given to women to take off, and relax during their period. That’s sixty days a year. Two whole months.

I have a short answer for ABC: no.

Women that want 2 days a week off, on top of their regular sick time; should they be voting in our leaders ? The answer is : this is how we got Trudeau, with his nice hair and fancy socks, and no qualifications.

“should we have paid period leave?”

Oh, absolutely. And for all identities. I mean, in all good conscience, how could you deny those “rights” to anyone self-identifying as a woman?

And metrosexual men? I mean they’re just like, sooooooooooo, sensitive! I mean, like it would be sooooooo cruel to make them abandon their partners at home while the victim was suffering soooooooo like badly!

I know it would just about shut down Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto, Edmonton and Vancouver ….but would that be a bad thing?

Personally I would say That I don’t want the women that would want the days off at work on those days anyway, because they are probably the same women that pound you with their PMS Bitchy attitude all day long.

Ha ha Alberta Mana!… And conveniently take his “time off” to coincide with what, gay pride parades or “whatever”… ?…

Actually let this happen, i would love to see the SJW crowd explain why a man who identifies as a a woman cannot get this.

For the last 50 years or so, we have been told that women are equal to men and that periods will not affect their performance. How does the argument for period leave square with that previous position?

Lol! I was laughing at these funny comments until I came to Deborah Graupner’s below. Now I am sobered. Along with fashion photos everywhere of the super-chic hijab NOT, we’re being dangled a new carrot that will nudge us even closer to sharia compliance. Man, we are stupid. Thank you, Deborah!

This is about keeping the “sisters” who are considered “haram” or “dirty” according to Islam, away from Muslim men. How else will they know which women are on there period?

ABC can afford it, whats all the bloody fuss about…….Sorry.

Ah, but Tammie and Judy the plan is to make women victims who need to rely on their übermensch leaders to provide the necessities for life.

Absolutely NOT!

No is right! I had to laugh at this post – one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever heard. Whoever dreamed up this crazy idea obviously isn’t responsible for financial cost-benefit analysis of proposals that affect the bottom line. And I don’t know of any woman who would announce she’s taking her tampon to the washroom – that isn’t professional talk for the workplace…..
