A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle
Fish on a bicycle by Ray Troll We can blame Gloria Steinem for a lot problems these days in verbiage and communication in the battle of men vs women.
But not this phrase.
“In your note on my new and happy marital partnership with David Bale, you credit me with the witticism A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle. In fact, Irina Dunn, a distinguished Australian educator, journalist and politician, coined the phrase back in 1970 when she was a student at the University of Sydney.”
Credit should go to Irina Dunn, graffiti artist and Australian Senator from the Nuclear Disarmament Party.
Liberals have the same world-view the world over.
