Australia’s ‘First Bloke’ Talks Prostate Exams From Asian Women (Video)

Australia's "First Bloke" — Insert finger here!Here’s a little humor from, um, down under.

At a reception for the Australian and West Indies cricket teams, Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s longtime boyfriend, Tim Mathieson, took the time to discuss his work in men’s health awareness.

“We can get a blood test for it, but the digital examination is the only true way to get a correct reading on your prostate. So make sure you go and do that,” said the “First Bloke.” “And perhaps look for a small, female Asian doctor is probably the best way to go there.”

It seems fairly obvious to us that Mathieson was saying Asian women have small hands — OH NO, THE RACISMS! — with possibly a bit of straight-man-buttphobia thrown in (even though he is “a hairdresser”). But considering Julia Gillard once went on an absolutely amazing anti-sexist rant, which you should absolutely treat yourself by watching, you can’t really expect the media to do anything but howl in delight over this racist (not racist) sexist (not sexist) GOTCHA!

Also, Gillard does not look happy, so there is that.
