Thinking of moving to Canada… so you can be governed by the newly elected “sexiest politician alive” Prime Minister Justin Trudeau? You are not alone.
There is little debate on this public fact… he is “McDreamy”.
While I drooled over my keyboard and imagined myself becoming a Canadian native and soon to be second wife of the Prime Minister with more style than Jackie Kennedy, I suddenly realised what a massive hypocrite I was being.
Because if Justin Trudeau were a woman and the international press were describing how “sexy” she was, how “gorgeous” her big brown eyes were, and what a “chiseled” physique she had, I would be outraged at the blatant sexism.
The looks of a Prime Minister should have nothing to do with how well they are perceived to do the job.
It is so easy to jump on the band wagon of a trivial story before you realise the damage that is done.

How good is it to be able to share images like this (insert pic of half-naked Trudeau) and say “Oh Canada”?! It’s good. But the not so popular truth is we probably shouldn’t.
The very same thing happened here in Australia recently where our own silver fox Malcolm Turnbull made headlines for being the nation’s new heartthrob — rather than the new PM.
Twitter hashtagged him #DILF (no I am not going to spell it out for you but just think ‘MILF’ and you will get it) which is fairly derogatory and Instagram’s @hotmalcolm was pure gold for entertainment value and silver fox viewing pleasure.
And who could forget earlier this year when GQ ran this front cover in a breathless piece that described our soon to be Prime Minister as a “lady-killer”.
And did we criticize any of it? No we sucked it right up. We Loved it. Shared it. Owned it.
