I just have to share this with you from Australia, where I am from and live. A female politician is "cat-called" in parliament when she appears to get a bit annoyed about something. Watch the video, her reaction is great.

"However, the senator later told news.com.au that he had not intended to attack Senator Wong because she was a woman.

"Her reaction to the issue of the secretary's appearance was like that of an angry cat. It could have been a male or female cat," he said."

Hahahahaha. Yes, I'm sure he's 'meowed' at male politicians a million times.

"I like cats", he added.

Ah yes, because it was really the idea that he might have been discriminating against a cat that had us all bothered ... hmm
