Australian feminist author Constance Hall says the ‘bogans’ who don’t like her outspoken blogs shouldn’t waste their time reading them.
The mother-of-seven said women should ‘rule the world’ during a sit-down interview about her polarising social media presence with 60 Minutes.
‘I blog about everything from being a mum, to being a wife, to anxiety, to body image,’ she told the program.
‘As soon as you become a mum, you just get typecast as just a mum, and it really takes over. And that’s what I’m trying to change.
‘You can be a mum and be a legend. You can do this, and you can travel. You can do this, because your husband should be doing 50 per cent of the child-rearing, too.’

The blogger said men ‘need to step up’, adding that she isn’t bothered care if they are upset by her fierce message.
‘I’m not trying to p*** off the white Australian man, but I don’t care if I do,’ she said.
‘I really think women should rule the world and we should be the bosses of everything, and it should be a matriarchal country.’
Nine News reporter Allison Langdon questioned Constance on whether she likes being called a ‘mummy blogger’.
Constance quipped: ‘F*** no, I’m not a mummy blogger, are you a mummy journalist?’
Constance shot to fame after her ‘parental sex’ blog went viral in 2016.

‘In 2016, when it was growing I was like, ”Who am I to write this stuff? I’m just a bogan from Freo”,’ she recalled.
‘It’s a crazy world where someone like me has millions of followers.’
But the large fan base came with its fair share of criticism and online abuse, leading the mother to open up about suicidal thoughts.
‘I felt like there was no getting away from them,’ she said.
Constance was asked if she’s the victim of tall-poppy syndrome and responded: ‘I think it’s very real, yeah.’

‘And I think it’s probably one of the main reasons that everyone hates me, because the following got so big.’
While Constance suffered at the hands of her online abuse, she decided her content didn’t need to be tailored for the benefit of her haters.
‘Everyone, f*** off,’ she thought. ‘I’m just going to write and if you don’t like it, don’t read it.’
‘If you’re upset because you’re a five foot bogan that didn’t make it, well f***ing make it.’
In an opinion piece for MamaMia on Friday, the 35-year-old revealed she set up a fake Facebook account last year in order to defend herself from trolls.
‘I did this because there was this ball of fury and pain growing inside my chest and I didn’t know what to do with hit,’ she explained.
Constance said she chose the name Annie, went without a profile picture, and used the account twice to defend herself against trolls.
‘I created Annie and claimed that she knew Constance and none of these things were true. And nobody listened and I still felt like sh*t,’ she wrote.

While Constance admitted that ‘at first, the ball of anger’ inside her chest ‘momentarily weakened,’ she could ‘see this game getting addictive.’
Constance hasn’t logged into ‘Annie’ for a year, and now speaks about her concerns with her online followers, reminding herself that she has so much support.
In an Instagram post from October, Constance shared a candid photo of herself lounging on a couch in just a black crop top and briefs, alongside a raw and honest caption.
‘Not gonna conform, woman. Loves who she is woman,’ she said.
‘How could she? Look like that? Spell like that? Talk so openly about her past and all the beds she’s slept or not slept in?’ Constance began her post.

In the same month, Constance revealed she didn’t understand the power of her vagina until after she had children.
Speaking to MamaMia about vaginal health, Constance told how she found her vagina’s power after having children.
‘That p**** pushed out a life that changed mine forever. It had never looked worse and I had never been more proud of it,’ she said reflecting on having a child in May 2009.
Constance revealed that she had previously thought the power of her vagina came from her abilities in the bedroom or withholding sex to keep men interested in pursuing her.
Constance, who has four children from a previous marriage, welcomed her fifth with new second husband Denim Cooke, and is a stepmother to Cooke’s two children.
She became an overnight sensation in 2016, thanks to her post on parental sex, on her blog, The Not So Secret Life of Us.
Constance detailed the ‘3.5 minutes you get in between changing nappies and making food’ to get intimate with your partner while the children are ‘distracted’.
She also appeared on the 2019 season of Dancing With The Stars, where she struck up a friendship with Karl Stefanovic’s ex-wife, Cassandra Thorburn.
