If you thought you were going to calmly enjoy your breakfast and cup of tea this morning while watching Weekend Sunrise, you were very wrong.
By the way, the show is not referring to a curse word, rather Feminism. Apparently, feminism is still as controversial as the word f*ck.
Things started relatively smoothly when Miranda Devine claimed little boys are demonised and categorised as “wife bashers”.
These damning accusations made by Devine are apparently proliferated by left-wing commentators, like Van Badham, who was also appearing on the show.
However, the atmosphere grew tenser between Andrew O’Keefe and Latham when fellow co-host, Angela Cox, asked Latham whether he thought men felt threatened by women, as they grow more educated.

"No, I think the average man is doing quite fine, they ignore most of the left feminist clap-trap. They ignore people like Van, who are a very more minority interest in our society," Latham said.
"She's a self-declared anarchist; way, way on the extreme left of politics. [She's] representing point zero zero one per cent of thought in Australia. But, she's safely ignored."
"...When you get away from Van's debate about women like her - left feminism is essentially selfish..."
That's when the segment really began to erupt with O'Keefe moaning, "Oh for God's sake, Mark."
After that it was a to and fro between Latham and O'Keefe, with the former Labor Leader arguing O'Keefe wasn't a participant on the panel, but merely a host.
As O'Keefe manages to say, "If you insist upon insulting the other guests...[Mark Latham keeps talking]...I'm trying to get to the bottom of the issues but you're trying to insult the other guests."
