Like most people I greet the New Year with some trepidation, given the crazy state of our increasingly authoritarian world. The clever British journalist Rod Liddle points out that our governments face a dilemma having burnt down the house to get rid of a wasps’ nest. The wasps are still alive and kicking. What now?
In America, the colleges are already boasting that the Biden election means there’s no need to worry about any of those pesky due process rights for accused students introduced by the Trump administration. Feminism’s steady march through the institutions has become a stampede – just part of the great reset that should have us losing sleep at night.
All the more reason to keep fighting, doing everything we can to expose the anti-male bias now pervading our culture. We need to recruit more of the silent majority of sensible folk who want fair treatment for both genders.
To start the year, I’ve lined up a thinkspot live chat with two of the great female champions of men’s rights – Janice Fiamengo and Diana Davison. We’ll be talking about Woody Allen’s innocence and how mud sticks to falsely accused men.
The three of us have been closely following the endless persecution of Woody Allen which we see as a fable for our times, given that so many in the film world and mainstream media support Mia Farrow’s version of events in relation to the sexual abuse allegations – despite all the evidence to the contrary. Diana has been applying her forensic mind to tracking what has happened and will reveal how the whole saga has been manipulated to suit the #MeToo era.
It’s bound to be a very lively discussion. That’s on Jan 11 at 11 am AEDT, which means the previous evening in America. Sign up here for the event and post your comments/questions.
Truths about indigenous violence
The hounding of Woody Allen is a clear example of the way our cultural dialogue is now carefully controlled, demonizing men and painting women as eternal victims.
Early last year I taped a fascinating video discussion about a similar but even more touchy topic. I’ve been sitting on it ever since because I decided not to release the video during the attacks on me because I didn’t want this important issue to be caught up in the vitriol.
Now it seems to make sense to start 2021 with a bang – and reveal this powerful story.
It’s all about indigenous violence. But not the dangerous aboriginal men you hear so much about, men rightly condemned for their aggression towards women and children.
What you never hear about in public discussion of indigenous violence is the domestic violence perpetrated by indigenous women.
Last year I was contacted by Phillip Bligh, an indigenous leader from the Central Coast of NSW. Phillip has spent over 30 years working in indigenous communities and schools and acting as a consultant for governments and other key organizations.
He wrote to me after being asked by the domestic violence organization White Ribbon to assess the cultural appropriateness of their Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Training Manual. Phillip was appalled that, as is true with all White Ribbon material, the manual presented a very simplistic picture of violent aboriginal men attacking and terrorizing women and children.
The reality is far more complex, with indigenous women playing an increasing role in family violence. Phillip wrote to me about the families he knew where children grew up in fear of violent, abusive mothers. He expressed his concern about the veil of silence being drawn over the fact that this mothering is contributing to the cycle of violence causing so much damage in his community.
He pointed out that report after report is being produced about the violence of indigenous men, but women are hardly ever mentioned and statistics about their abuse is invariably missing.
The hidden statistics showing women’s violence
In preparation for our discussion, we asked the excellent NSW Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research to dig out the latest statistics. The results were very telling:
- Indigenous women are eight times more likely to perpetrate domestic assault than the group of all women.
- Indigenous women are more than twice as violent as men in general.
When you look at the graph showing this data below, the shocking violence of aboriginal men makes the most obvious impression. But it is striking that the other large group of domestic violence perpetrators – indigenous women – are somehow avoiding public scrutiny.
Our governments spend millions of dollars on projects calling out men’s violence but not one cent addressing the destructive effects of the high levels of domestic violence perpetrated by indigenous women.
And how come no one is talking about the fact that the problem of violent indigenous women is getting far worse? Look at these trends over the last decade – it is women who are becoming more violent, particularly the indigenous women.
To make matters worse, these domestic violence figures don’t include the high levels of child abuse and neglect by indigenous mothers which contributes to the constant issue over child protection in these communities.
These facts will be uncomfortable for many people, but effective social policy must be based on evidence not ideology.
It takes a brave soul to speak out about this controversial issue and I applaud Phillip Bligh for coming forward. I hope you agree that his thoughtful analysis of these issues deserves proper attention and will help me promote this new video.

(Note that we actually ended up releasing it as an audio podcast due to various production problems but if you are listening to it please do watch from 4.16 to 7.20 where I carefully go through the statistics, aided by revealing graphs. I have put all this information together – see this link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1trRocVgFC_DbGqNCn7T4cNLaSCuYiuwG/view?usp=sharing – and urge you to circulate it widely. I have deliberately left my name out of it so you can simply use the link to include in letters and comments whenever indigenous violence is discussed.)
Follow the money
Take a look at this marvellous photo from an article about using sport to tackle violence against women, showing a huge line of indigenous women joining in a protest to “say no to family violence.” The women line up to say no to men’s violence but their own somehow doesn’t matter.
The article was sent to me by Glenn, one of my South Australian correspondents, who explained his local football club has received huge sums of money from the state government for sending footballers into schools to run boys-only classes on domestic violence and respecting women. Glenn writes: “This has been happening for 5 years now so the club has made literally millions of dollars from these classes. Just recently they have extended the program with a girls-only program all about gender equity. They give girls tips on how to leave an abusive relationship safely and how to spot signs that their partner may become violent.”
He rightly suggests we should be objecting to this anti-male propaganda which fails to address the complexities of family violence. Since the football club also relies on funding from small businesses who sponsor individual players, Glenn had the bright idea of encouraging people to email or call these businesses and ask them to stop funding the club unless they offer violence programs which properly address both male and female violence.
I thought this was just the sort of initiative we need. If we are going to influence organisations that indulge in this type of virtue-signalling we need to follow the money – leaning on their other sources of income and objecting to this narrow, ideologically-driven approach to such a serious social issue.
So how about you all make a New Year’s resolution to spend a few minutes each week writing to organisations, councils and politicians with clear, simple messages about such issues. If we all did this, we’d provide evidence of the groundswell of people who have had enough of feminist propaganda capturing so much of the public discourse.
So, enough of the tut-tutting and shaking your head at the state of our world. It’s time for action.
All the best for a very busy, healthy 2021
