Domestic violence and the The Australian reality -
"Meanwhile these same so-called progressives are happy to consign poor and indigenous women to their deaths in their darkly narcissistic campaign to argue that they are no more at risk than upper-middle class professionals because it is simply men that are the problem, not broken communities. This is the deadliest of lies.
As a result you won’t see or hear these progressive gender warriors championing the findings of this most comprehensive and belatedly groundbreaking study, because they know they are condemned by the truth."
. . . as the outrage subsides and the evidence rolls in, it will become evermore clear that the social media arbiters of social justice are mindless hypocrites far more obsessed with their own pontification than the real problems besetting society — not to mention wholly unaware of what those problems even are.
And as the outrage is constantly disproved and defrocked, not only does the emperor have no clothes but the emperor has been stripsearched at Splendour and found to be carrying not so much as a disco biscuit up the jexy.
The truth will out, the truth will prevail, and the truth will put the horseshit in the pail." Joe Hildebrand
What a lot of red necked vitriol. I won't bother commenting on the shock horror disruption to the daily lives of commuters.
This is the type of "journalism" that fomented support of the Liberals intervention in the NT and the roll out of the cashless credit card. And further marginalised our first peoples.
Family violence is a horrific problem right across the socio-economic spectrum. The statistics on DV do not give on accurate picture of the extent of this societal scourge. They are generally based on police call outs and reported incidents. Many, many incidents go unreported for fear of repercussion; lack of faith in the system; and well to do victims have the financial ability to flee. None the less they are useful as a general guide.
Sure the stats might highlight more of a problem in the NT. But do not reveal the terrible living conditions of our indigenous residing there. The punitive Government response took away yet another slice of dignity exacerbating the problem.
Now if " violence in disadvantaged and indigenous communities and that alcohol was also a driving factor" then what is the root cause of the excessive alcohol consumption. Perhaps we should look deeper into the economic and social violence of the increasingly dystopian society we suffer under.
As for the weasel word claim that "... so-called progressives are happy to consign poor and indigenous women to their deaths in their darkly narcissistic campaign to argue that they are no more at risk than upper-middle class professionals because it is simply men that are the problem, not broken communities", well there is a small unintended element of truth in this. No one is happy to consign any women to their death. Women do suffer more incidents of DV, and more severe forms of it than men. Whilst it is important to highlight womens deaths it is also important to acknowledge men are victims too. Putting the blame solely on men deepens the gender divide. DV is a societal problem.
And last, recidivism needs to be addressed. As one who has worked with victims, I am deeply concerned at the dysfunctional Governmental approach at DV prevention. Quite often their funded Agencies compound problems and put victims at further risk.
