Has the accepted role of journalism become that of a woke lullaby?

On the 16 June 2023 Australian media operator, Crikey, issued the following advice in relation to an article written by senior staffer, Guy Rundle: “Crikey has made the decision to unpublish the article, and apologises to Brittany Higgins and readers”. Thus Crikey didn’t simply grovel, it took the somewhat unusual step of also deleting the … Continue reading Has the accepted role of journalism become that of a woke lullaby?

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. … Continue reading #GenderEqualityWhenItSuits: A submission to the Review of the Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012

The Queensland government again demonstrates its ‘why bother with men?’ attitude

Their ABC presented us with a telling headline yesterday (29 April 2021): ‘Queensland’s domestic violence taskforce head wants to hear women’s stories of reporting abuse‘ (Source) It began with “The head of a Queensland domestic violence and justice taskforce says women’s experiences reporting abuse to police will be looked at as part of the wide-ranging … Continue reading The Queensland government again demonstrates its ‘why bother with men?’ attitude

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

Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic the feminist lobby claimed that there had been a surge* in domestic violence. (*Note that the term ‘surge’ has been well and truly overtaken, more recently by ‘staggering increase‘ or ‘driving a spike‘, etc). This trend has manifested itself across several countries, with the UN Women agency being … Continue reading Was there 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 followed what is by now a well-established script. That script is one involving playing down or ignoring the negative impacts of an issue or situation on men, whilst focusing on the perceived negative impacts on women. It also involves playing up the positive contribution of … 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)
