Very sad news for those who haven’t heard, but Steve Irwin, AKA “The Crocodile Hunter” died on Monday morning after suffering a fatal wound from a stringray.
Steve Irwin was a really great man, a great conservationist and an icon.
That hasn’t stopped the venom of feminism from trying to cash in his death.

Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin Attacked by Radical Feminist in Death

Steve Irwin has barely passed, but that hasn’t stop Aussie feminist Germaine Greer from attacking ‘Crocodile Hunter’ Steve Irwin and try to cash in on his death.  The Australian academic, writer, and broadcaster seemingly could barely contain her glee as she wrote of Irwin’s death.

“The animal world has finally taken its revenge on Irwin, but probably not before a whole generation of kids in shorts seven sizes too small has learned to shout in the ears of animals with hearing 10 times more acute than theirs, determined to become millionaire animal-loving zoo-owners in their turn,” she wrote.

Outrage over Greer pot shots

A STORM of fury has erupted over Germaine Greer’s criticism of Steve Irwin barely hours after his death.

The expat Aussie, known more these days for her regular bashing of her homeland, fired pot shots at Irwin within hours of news spreading across the globe that he’d been fatally stabbed by a stingray.

Australian leaders, experienced animal handlers and Irwin’s friends were outraged, saying Greer was looking to boost her flagging literary career.
In a scathing attack in a British newspaper, Greer said nature had taken its revenge on Irwin for his robust handling of Australia’s native animals.

Steve Irwin saved my life, says diver

AN American diver who owes his life to Steve Irwin says he was shattered to learn about the Crocodile Hunter’s death.

“He saved my life,” an emotional Scott Jones said today from his home in Iowa.

“I’ve lost a good friend.”

The stupid whore. The best comment I’ve heard about this is that “Nature REALLY got revenge when they transplanted King Kongs arse onto Germaine Greer’s face.”

That’s for those who still believe feminism isn’t about hate and dollar signs.

Ugly, twisted and reprehensible.

It just keeps getting weirder and weirder… Thanks for spotting that and taking the time to post w/links. Unbelievable. And a total distraction from the fact that it was yet another on-the-job death by a man in a risky occupation.

“A STORM of fury has erupted over Germaine Greer’s criticism of Steve Irwin barely hours after his death.”

Dang straight. Glad to hear there’s some vestige of sanity left in the world. The way I’d heard it was the Aussies kind of resented having their sole global representatives be of the Crocodile Dundee (first) and then Steve Irwin sort, that it was something of a national embarassment which they wished would go away.

She was onto something, though, with this: “…never seemed to understand was that animals need space. The one lesson any conservationist must labor to drive home is that habitat loss is the principal cause of species loss.”

Oh well, I guess rad-fems like her would never think of men as animals since they want to see us go extinct anyway.

VERY good point, Crella.

Should anyone on here wish to make a complaint about Germaine Greer’s disgraceful article, here is where to make it:

Mail to:
Readers’ editor, The Guardian, 119 Farringdon Road, London EC1R 3ER, UK.
Fax: +44 (0)20 7239 9997.
Email: reader@guardian.co.uk

I am writing an email in another window as we speak. If Michael Noer, an ordinary joe, is to face threat to his career for doing a public service, then one can only hope that Germaine Greer, a radical feminist, will have her career threatened for an act of abject hatred.

Men have standards. Women will be compared. DEAL WITH IT.

Will the Career FemNags on Forbes.com support Germaine Greer an Old Pedophile? Who has published nude photos of young Boys? This is what old Feminists with Cats do at the Twilight of their Lives. Prove just how insane and stupid Western Women are. His corpse is hardly cold and this Aging Cougar Skank is impugning a Conservationist.

This is what the Forbes.com Women many of them are defending. Could you imagine a Man making a comment about a Woman killed in this Manner? NEVER his career would be finished. There are no restraints on women’s behavior in the West None at all.

Stupid biitch. Dang it, what a cow!!!!

Just another white man down, what would she care. Most feminists loath white men, I mean the ones that aren’t conservative commies.

Women have been proving for the last 30 years that men have been right for the last 30 centuries!

The female approach to wildlife conservation — or, Pandorasbox was right, look out for Thai women:

Ex-wife has man BBQ’d and fed to tigers

So, I read what Greer said and wonder how it’s any different from her saying “oh, he was just asking for it”…

At least this will discredit her in the majority of the world’s eyes.
http://www.guardian.co.uk/australia/story/0,,1865590,00.html

I would like to say I’m shocked that a even a feminist could stoop so low in a bid to sell her name, cashing in on the media storm surrounding this great mans immediate death, but I am not, just reason 987,654,234,677,5…. for society to reject rad/modern feminism.

Steve was a real conservationist, not a freaky peta-wackjob, he worked to create change to preserve habitat, he didn’t go around ineffectually crying shame at any one who eats wears or even touches an animal. Hope this doesn’t spawn some freaky peta-radfem ideological merger, the horror.

“All societies on the verge of death are masculine. A society can survive with only one man; no society will survive a shortage of women.”
