by Bettina Arndt (25 March 2022) Sydney schoolgirl, Chanel Contos Last month it was announced all Australian high school students are to be taught about sexual consent and coercion.

Australia’s E-Safety Office: A potentially sound initiative now awash with feminist kool-aid

What finally prompted me to write this post was a tweet issued by the Australian Human Rights Commission yesterday about ‘Scam Awareness Week’, with an associated forum apparently being run by a group called the eSafety office. I mean to say, imagine an agency heavily funded by tax-payers (predominantly male) to support and protect all … Continue reading Australia’s E-Safety Office: A potentially sound initiative now awash with feminist kool-aid

#GenderEqualityWhenItSuits: A submission to the Review of the Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012

To suggest that the Australian Government is currently committed to achieving gender equality is an absolutely farcical proposition. Can an organisation be only half committed? I think not. I say this as the extent to which the government acknowledges and supports men/boys, relative to the support it expresses for women/girls, overwhelmingly favours the latter. Further, … Continue reading #GenderEqualityWhenItSuits: A submission to the Review of the Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012

Has there been a surge in domestic violence during the Covid-19 pandemic?

Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic the feminist lobby has claimed that there has been a surge* in domestic violence. (*Note that the term ‘surge’ has been well and truly overtaken by now, more recently by ‘staggering increase‘ or ‘driving a spike‘). This trend has manifested itself across several countries, with the UN Women … Continue reading Has there been a surge in domestic violence during the Covid-19 pandemic?

Coronavirus: Women most affected

Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic the mainstream media has been following what is by now a well-established script. That script is one that involves playing down or ignoring the negative impacts of an issue or situation on men, whilst focussing on the perceived negative impacts on women. It also involves playing up the … Continue reading Coronavirus: Women most affected

Respect women (… well, unless they respect men)

One surprising inclusion in the 2020 Australia Day honours list was a Member of the Order of Australia award for Bettina Arndt. It was surprising not because the recipient was undeserving (which she wasn’t), but because such public awards tend to favour those pushing politically palatable (and increasingly left of centre) causes. You would probably … Continue reading Respect women (… well, unless they respect men)

Australian Federal Family Law Inquiry 2019

“The Federal Government will launch an inquiry into the family law system, after accusations the court system is failing vulnerable Australians. Coalition backbenchers and the crossbench, including One Nation leader Pauline Hanson, have been calling for an inquiry for some time, arguing the system is too expensive and slow. The inquiry will be run by … Continue reading Australian Federal Family Law Inquiry 2019

Public events & domestic violence myth

Feminists claim a bogus strong link between televised football and/or major sports events such as the U.S Superbowl to sudden (alleged) surges in the incidence of domestic violence. A broader treatment of this topic was previously provided in another of my blog posts entitled ‘Fudging the figures to support the feminist narrative‘. Given however that … Continue reading Public events & domestic violence myth

On housework and ’emotional labour’

You may have noticed articles appearing on the above topics with increasing regularity. Almost without exception the theme is one of men as unappreciative, lazy, selfish, oafs. We are told that women who are in heterosexual relationships are routinely forced to pick up the slack, and are consequently unhappy and disadvantaged. Until now I collated … Continue reading On housework and ’emotional labour’
