Chances are she doesn’t look like Catherine Zeta Jones

By johnboy - 12 August 2013 27

A 28-year-old Page woman will face the ACT Magistrates Court today charged with burglary and resisting arrest.

About 9.20pm police were called to a home in Hawker in relation to an alleged offender on the premises. The woman attempted to flee the scene upon police arrival.

A short time later the woman was arrested nearby and was later charged with burglary and escaping lawful custody.

Police will be opposing bail.

The Crimes are saying that she is Ex Capitals Player Janna Sladic.

It’d be fascinating to know how someone who plays at the national level of sport can end up as a heroin user rummaging through houses looking for the spare change under cushions. Assuming she wasn’t on the horse while playing basketball.

Rumour has it she became addicted to prescription opiates after an injury. It’s quite common if you have a dodgy doctor who doesn’t prescribe carefully. I have seen it many times.

And she’s been hanging around with Matthew Massey for years.

She probably was someone’s heroine once, so perhaps the CT is being ironic with their double entendre.

Those Endone type opiate pain killers are highly addictive. They play tricks with the mind on old folks as well. They should be banned altogether.

What’s more they report that:

The prosecution opposed bail, arguing Sladic was likely to reoffend as she was a known heroine user.

So she’s a ‘heroine’ user?

More casual sexism.

Being an elite sportsperson doesn’t make you any less infallible than the rest of us. Rich, poor, good family, broken home, elite sports star, couch potato, it can get anyone.

As TISM once sang:

The rich kids becomes a junkie, the poor kid an advertiser. What a tragic waste of potential. gee the junkie’s not so good either…

Say what you will, he’s the master of the evil headline.

The headline is rubbish – it doesn’t tell us anything about the story. But it speaks volumes about the headline writer and those who appreciate him (I assume it’s a him, how sexist of me). Casual sexism is an enduring cultural blind spot that we women are *still* enduring. [Cue: “Get a sense of humour!”]

Blokes put up with plenty as well (have a look at commercial TV advertising for example). We should still try to stamp it out, though.

Women are never “casually” sexist? I guess they are being deliberately sexist then, constantly.

And your point is…? Good headline or not? And reasons for your vote?

Given that I am the reader most likely have a consistent, snarky and overly sustained go at the moderators here for sexism (entrenched, casual, photographic, or by omission), I’m allowed to admire what JB is good at. I am quite aware of that of which you speak.

That’s why I said evil, after all…
