Just received from Tina:
I’ve had a busy time trying to catch up after my recent grey nomad trip, driving from Sydney through to Adelaide. It turned out I am a lousy grey nomad. I spent too many evenings yelling at television sets in various country towns, furious about the ideological claptrap that pours out of ABC programming.
But one highlight was a fun stop in Temora, near Wagga in NSW, where I gave a talk to a very lively audience in the local bowling club. The previous week I’d done a radio interview with Wagga ABC, with a typical hostile female host who was outraged at my argument that feminism had gone off the rails. When I mentioned false accusations of violence used in family law battles, she went into meltdown, announcing she would edit that out of the interview because ABC rules require that they don’t promote misleading information. What a joke. She ended up broadcasting roughly ten minutes of an interview three times that length, naturally leaving out her final hissy fit. It was interesting how many people came along to hear me precisely because they were fed up with being preached to by women like her.
Check if your submission has been published
I’ve been catching up with my wonderful team of helpers who have been busily working with people making submissions to the Family Law inquiry. The deadline was this week. We’d been told people could include identifying information but just today we learnt the committee has suddenly decided not to publish any submission which mentions names. If you have already put in a submission including identifying information can you please check whether it has been published – see here.
Please urgently contact my researcher, Irene, and let her know if details have been changed/edited without your permission. Also, we need to know if you have heard from the committee that they have decided not to publish your submission and exactly what they told you.
We are finding out what’s going on here and will be insisting that people are given extensions so they can remove identifying information from submissions if that is required to have them published. We don’t want all these valuable stories hidden from public view.
New Year blitz on our universities
I’m now gearing up for projects planned for the New Year and first cab off the rank is to recruit graduates of Australian universities to send letters to current Vice Chancellors to find out how they propose to deal with the Queensland Supreme Court judgement stating universities have no jurisdiction over sexual assault. With Education Minister Dan Tehan instructing the university sector to respond to this judgement, I like to think that the mighty feminist enterprise supporting the fake rape crisis at our universities is now on its knees. But we need you all to put pressure on universities to take note and in early January I’ll get you the draft letter we are preparing for you to use.
The wonderful online journal Quillette has just published my summary of all these recent events. https://quillette.com/2019/12/21/derailing-australias-campus-rape-panic/
Funnily enough it was Claire Lehmann, the founder of Quillette, who first inspired me to get involved in challenging the campus rape scare campaign when she contacted me about a PhD student being investigated for rape by an Adelaide University committee. Between the two of us, we managed to get the university to back off – here’s the video I made about that case. Watching what happened to that young man was a real trigger point for me.
More videos coming soon
We haven’t made many videos recently because we are waiting for numbers to build up on thinkspot. I don’t want to waste the wonderful interviews I have lined up on tiny audiences and YouTube censorship makes that a pretty useless platform for me.
But thinkspot is now hitting its straps having spent much of this year developing the beta platform. All people on the waiting list will be given access soon and the platform will be open to all users.
Bootlicker of the Patriarchy
Finally, a funny to start our holiday season. I’m attracting new followers from across the world because I have just been denounced by the notorious feminist extremist, Egyptian-American journalist Mona Eltahawy.
Eltahawy caused a huge stir here recently when she appeared on the ABC’s Q&A program promoting the killing of rapists. “How many rapists must we kill until men stop raping us?” she said on the program which attracted hundreds of complaints and led to the show being removed from ABC platforms.
Eltahawy left the country, the fuss died down and then suddenly she tweeted that she was compiling what she called a “bootlickers of the patriarchy bundle” which she described as a “collection of women who go over and beyond for patriarchy.”
And I headed up the list! I couldn’t resist tweeting the good news, suggesting that being accused of going overboard for patriarchy is like being castigated for protecting unicorns.
That’s it for 2019. I wish you all a wonderful Christmas and relaxing holiday season.
After a great year with some real runs on the board I’m looking forward to tackling some of the big challenges that lie ahead – with your help!
