Issues - Domestic Violence -Feminst bias in Australia

Australian News Commentary

Feminists manipulate government to demonise men in domestic violence
advertising campaign.
Anna Marshall - 21 June

The Australian federal government's launch last week of a $20 million advertising campaign highlighting domestic violence is the latest in a string of feminist offensives to demonise men.

With the campaign slogan "To violence against women, Australia says no", the commercials exclusively feature men as perpetrators of domestic violence, a fact not supported by available statistics.

The commercials also encourage women to withdraw consent during the sex act to make men guilty of sexual assault. The insidious feminist influence on sexual assault legislation caused the monstrous travesty of justice relating to the so-called 30-second rapist.

The feminist zealots have conned the government in running the campaign based on the stereotype of men as wife-bashers and women as victims. This is blatant lie. Studies in Britain, the US and Australia reveal that men are subjected to domestic violence in equal if not greater numbers than women.

One of the most comprehensive studies on the subject of domestic violence was carried out by Heady, Scott and De Vaus in Australia (see side panel). Their startling conclusion was that in the 12- month period, 5.1 per cent of men were victims of domestic violence compared to 3.2 per cent female victims in the same time period.

Women who kill their babies

The feminist lie that only men are evil and violent has lead to many distortions in the justice system. When a woman kills a spouse she routinely receives a light sentence. When a man kills his child he is portrayed as an evil monster. When a woman kills her child the judge looks for an excuse for her because it is not natural for a woman to commit such an offence.

But for this misconception, one or more of Craig and Kathleen Folbigg's children could still be alive. NSW woman, Kathleen Folbigg cold-bloodedly killed her four children over a ten year period for no better reason, according to her diary, than they annoyed her when they cried and cut into her time to go to the gym and go dancing. When this evil woman smothered 19-day-old Caleb his death was put
down to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Next she smothered Baby Patrick and then Sarah.

The Coroner noticed bruises on Sarah's neck but because of his blinkered view did not associates the bruises with any action of the mother.

A detective began investigating. He was later to admit that his investigation was hampered by his mind-set that women do not kill their children.

This a totally erroneous concept. The National Homicide Monitoring Program conducted by the Australian Institute of Criminology reveals that where children are killed by their biological parents, the mothers commit 55 per cent of the murders.

And so Folbigg killed her daughter Laura. Only then did she get charged and subsequently found guilty.
