Ravings From The Bog


Shortish, Hairy, Overweight Men Needed – Quick!

At last, some good news…

There are opportunities coming up for men of all shapes, sizes and looks – but you’ll need to emigrate to Australia. That’s not all bad if you can stand the G’Day accent, as when the country isn’t suffering wild fires, the civilised bit around the edges of the desert that is Australia can be quick a pleasant place to live.

So…if you’re thinking of making a change in the marital arrangements, or you’re so physically challenged that you haven’t been snapped up yet, head “down-under” quick. Apparently the beer is quite good. Get a copy of the “LoveMap” before you go though – might save you some time.

Australia Suffers “Man Drought”

The statistics have revealed that there are almost 100,000 more females than males in Australia.

The problem is worse in the coastal cities, where women have moved seeking better jobs and lifestyles, while many men have gone overseas.

Thirty years ago Australia was with flush with men thanks to immigration policies that favoured males.

That position has been reversed because thousands of Australian men in their 20s and early 30s have gone overseas either to travel or to work.

It has caused a gender imbalance that is having far-reaching implications.

Major cities in Australia now have concentrated groups of unattached women, along with dwindling numbers of the opposite sex.

Demographer Bernard Salt says the exodus of young men to foreign countries is leaving its mark.

“If you go into the United Arab Emirates census you’ll find there is around 12,000 Australians living in Dubai, mostly male, mostly in the 25 to 34-year age group.

“Here is an example of one country that has drawn out a specific age demographic out of Australia which has contributed to the ‘man drought’.”

But the situation outside of the larger towns and cities is very different.

Vast numbers of women have abandoned the countryside seeking better jobs or education in metropolitan areas. They have left behind communities overloaded with younger males.

In the town of Glenden in the northern state of Queensland there is one single female for every 23 men.

Demographers have compiled a so-called “Love Map” that shows how the various clusters of unattached men and women are distributed across the Australian continent.
