Van Badham’s eye roll: Just hysterical

My post today begins with a panel discussion entitled ‘Have men become second-class citizens’ that featured on the ‘Sunrise’ TV program in Australia. “Miranda Devine, Mark Latham, Van Badham and Rory Gibson join Sunrise to discuss if women are receiving preferential treatment in today’s society, and if feminism is responsible for men feeling displaced.” Mark Latham … Continue reading Van Badham’s eye roll: Just hysterical

Sadly, Australian politicians only find the courage to criticise the feminist lobby after they retire

If any further proof were needed about the extent of power wielded by the feminist lobby in Australia then consider the fact that gender issues are rarely mentioned by politicians unless their views are in lockstep with the feminist position on the relevant matter. As for direct criticism of feminists or feminism … well that’s … Continue reading Sadly, Australian politicians only find the courage to criticise the feminist lobby after they retire

The people speak: Feminist journalist hears but won’t listen

You might be interested in taking a look at this article entitled ‘A gender-equality wish list for 2016’, and the readers comments that follow. The article was written by feminist journalist Wendy Tuohy. I think I first introduced Wendy in this blog post. I would probably place her in the second tier of Australian feminist journalists, were they ranked according to stridency and … Continue reading The people speak: Feminist journalist hears but won’t listen

No place for feminist propaganda in our schools or universities

I was reading an article the other day about the ongoing push to have feminist propaganda introduced into our schools under the guise of ‘respectful relationships’ programs (or some other similar label). The article in question, entitled ‘Bid to teach anti-violence to schoolkids‘ (Jessica Marszalek, Courier-Mail, 30 July 2015) included the following statements: “She (QLD Minister … Continue reading No place for feminist propaganda in our schools or universities

Australian minor political parties and their views on feminism & men’s rights

In another post in this blog I mention the fact that there are scarcely any individual politicians in Australia, let alone political parties, that are prepared to move out of lockstep with the feminist lobby. Also in another blog post I briefly discuss the position of the major parties on feminism and men’s rights, in the context … Continue reading Australian minor political parties and their views on feminism & men’s rights

Australian government announces intention to reprogram boys to reduce domestic violence

“BOYS as young as nine will be targeted in the new fight against domestic violence. Social media will also become the new way to deliver the Federal Government’s $30 million education campaign. The Assistant Minister for Women, Michaelia Cash, has revealed boys aged between nine and 12, non-English-speaking women and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders … Continue reading Australian government announces intention to reprogram boys to reduce domestic violence

On deaths related to domestic violence

In this post I address the topic of murder and suicide occurring within the context of intimate partner violence. There are also separate posts dealing with suicide, and with the DV-related deaths of children. As readers might well be aware, significant numbers of men, women and children lose their lives each year by way of incidents related to domestic violence. … Continue reading On deaths related to domestic violence

Dubious public policy borne from the denial of female violence

Whilst browsing the daily news I came across an article entitled Domestic violence register to protect women who fear their partners’ past (6 March 2015) (If you haven’t already read my blog post about violent behaviour by women, then now would be a good time to do so) Mike Baird (Premier of New South Wales, … Continue reading Dubious public policy borne from the denial of female violence

Criticism and negative portrayal of the men’s rights movement

The nature of criticism put forward in relation to the men’s rights movement says a lot about both the MRM and it’s critics – but mostly not in the way these authors intended. This blog post remains a ‘work in progress’ … I have many relevant papers in other pre-existing blog posts that I need to move here … Continue reading Criticism and negative portrayal of the men’s rights movement

How tragic that feminists ignore their role in demonising men

What follows is just one example of feminist hypocrisy. Not the worst example by any means. But just one that happened to come across my desk the other day. The author is a feminist journalist working for an Australian pro-feminist media group, an organisation that has been mentioned in one or two of my other blog posts due … Continue reading How tragic that feminists ignore their role in demonising men
