The Minister for Women. Why not call her the Minister for Feminism? Isn't it interesting there's no concept of a "Minister for Men"?
Because it's against men that this law will be applied. No defense, the presumption of guilt, and not even the right to face your accuser.
"Imagine the bravery it takes to stand up to a violent partner" she says, assuming all accusers are innocent victims, and all accused are guilty. No burden of proof. The trial is just for show.
"We hold red rose rallies every time a person dies in Queensland"
How many are held for men?
Yet more men die than women, by a substantial degree.
Men... aren't persons. They aren't people. They are the victimisers, the enemies, the ones who lay the real people in the Earth.
This is the rhetoric of every hate movement.
"A change where victims, a change where fathers like myself, will be left without worry that our daughters will be treated with respect from males in their lives," he said.
Domestic violence is most commonly reciprocal.
How much respect are women treating their men with?
Hmm, it turns out:
"In 70% of the non-reciprocally violent relationships women were the perpetrators of violence."
So maybe the parents should be making sure their kids are protected from violence - not just blaming their sons for whatever happens to their daughters, not giving their sons no protection from the women in their lives.
And what if they aren't straight? There's no recognition that that is possible in their minds.
Why? Because of an inconvenient truth: Lesbians are MORE likely to be violent than straight men.
But that undermines the narrative - the Duluth Model, the idea that all men are responsible for all violence - and all women - even that woman who killed 8 kids, - are responsible for none of it.
Removing the right to a fair trial, in the name of protecting the wimmin-folk - where have we heard that one before?
Didn’t work out so well last time now, did it?
