It Really Does Read Like Something From The Onion

It Really Does Read Like Something From The Onion

But it is from the December 9, 2008 Australian Herald-Sun:
DISCRIMINATION against dominant white males will soon be encouraged in a bid to boost the status of women, the disabled and cultural and religious minorities.


Equal Opportunity Commission CEO Dr Helen Szoke said males had "been the big success story in business and goods and services".

"Clearly, they will have their position changed because they will be competing in a different way with these people who have been traditionally marginalised," she said.

"Let's open it up so everyone can have a fair go."

Huh? If the proposed change in law required equal opportunity, then "everyone can have a fair go" would be an accurate description of the proposal. But the article indicates that the objective is to encourage discrimination in favor of all non-white, non-males. That's hardly a "fair go." Except to a liberal.
