As an Aussie, I am finding the smear campaign aaginst Nicole Kidman a little harsh. I am not a fan of Nicole's but I think the media is outta control...I wish it would stop. As to Nicole's faux pas on that tv program in Germany, even I didn't know it was forbidden for a woman to play the instrument. There are more important things in the world to comment and worry about.

Leave the poor woman alone.

Enough of :deadhorse:

Even I have to say that's a little silly. The Aborigines know they sell those things to the general public, right? If they think Nicole Kidman is the first woman on the planet to play a didgeridoo, I've got some unpleasant news for them...

To be fair, some of the people upset seem to be more concerned about Nicole becoming barren for playing the instrument, and that her example might be followed by other women with the same result.

But those who are upset because regarding their culture are being a bit overly simplistic and reflecting something of a mysogenistic streak in their heritage. One that should probably be done away with anyhow.

Heh...well, there's not exactly a shortage of people on this planet, so I think we'll be alright one way or another.
