Fire AJ for 'flexi-rape' slur

Published:Monday | November 3, 2014 | 11:00 AM

THE EDITOR, Sir: Not even two weeks after Minister Louis Farrakhan's address in Kingston, admonishing the nation to, among other things, show greater respect for women, I am now reading about Minister A.J. Nicholson's "flexi-rape" statement.

This is shameful and tantamount to a national disgrace for a senior minister of Government, whose boss happens to be female, to have uttered such a statement, jokingly or not.

Where is the minister's sense of responsibility? Where is his respect for women?

The nation should demand that he be fired immediately and that he apologise to the women of the nation.
