It was encouraging to see the extensive media coverage of the recent shaming of boys in two Victorian schools, where boys were required to apologise for men’s violence and denounced as male oppressors.
We’ve decided to capitalize on this rare interest in male welfare to run a big campaign using Mothers of Sons to gather stories of boy shaming in schools across Australia and bring them to the attention of the media.
Shaming of boys as toxic, violent and dangerous has been happening for years in Australia and is part of school curriculum in many states. I’ve made a number of videos exposing this – one with a teacher denouncing Victoria’s Respectful Relationships programs, another showing the systematic denigration of males in South Australian school child protection courses. And then there’s White Ribbon which runs programs across the country denying women’s role in family violence and labelling men as the sole aggressors.
I’ve frequently had parents contact me who are alarmed by their sons being subjected to this poison but fearful of speaking out for fear their boys might be targeted.
That’s where Mothers of Sons comes in. We’ll be putting the call out to parents to contact the MOS team who will help them compile evidence of the shaming which MOS can then present to local media. The big launch is planned for Tues May 18, on a live event on MOS Facebook.
I’ll give you more information next week. But we need more people to come on board to help with this exciting campaign, preparing for the possibility this might really take off. Men and women are welcome to volunteer, particularly people with project management, journalism/copywriting, social media or admin experience. We’ll need financial support for advertising/social media if you’d like to contribute.
What happened to the missing million?
Now I have a funny story for you. I was recently sitting in a gynaecologist’s waiting room (monitoring which part of my body will fall apart next is one of the most irritating aspects of ageing). I’d forgotten my phone and the only reading material available due to Covid fear-mongering was a lone copy of the St Vincent Clinic Foundation research report.
Flicking through it I discovered this fascinating graph showing the gender split of research grant recipients:
It tells quite a story. Take a good look and you’ll discover male scientists receiving the bulk of the grants right through to 2020 when, miraculously, the males lost $1 million in funding to end up exactly on par with the female researchers.
I sent a series of questions to the Foundation asking how this was possible, given the document states that only the best projects were supported and gender was not mentioned as a criterion for determining the funding.
Here’s the fatuous response from media director David Faktor on behalf of St Vincent’s, “I can confirm that the selection of research grant recipients by the St Vincent’s Clinic Scientific Committee is based purely on merit,” he wrote, claiming the shift was simply due to an increase in senior female researchers. Phooey!
What’s alarming is these people see no need to come up with any proper story to cover their shameless social engineering. It’s now a badge of honour to be seen as blatantly promoting women ahead of men.
Grattan Institute boondoggle
Take a look at the recent report produced by The Grattan Institute, which claims the Covid crisis had a far more adverse impact on employment of women than men. Their report was naturally lapped up by much of the media, which reveled in talk of a “pink recession”, claiming women’s economic progress had stalled in the shadow of Covid, that women were more likely to lose their jobs, and working hours than men.
One of my correspondents has done an excellent job exposing the shameful deception of the Institute, revealing their duplicitous distorting of the data and cherry-picking of results, whilst ignoring readily available ABS data which contradicts all their major conclusions. Read his detailed analysis here.
The key finding from the Institute was at peak Covid in April, almost 8 per cent of Australian women had lost their jobs whilst the figure for men was 4 per cent.
My learned correspondent explains this massaged result was achieved using an apples versus oranges comparison, comparing women at the bottom of the recession to figures for men from an earlier period. The data misleadingly included only employed women, not all women and people who resigned jobs as well as those who lost them. It’s a classic example of the point well made in the book, How to lie with Statistics: “If you can’t prove what you want to prove, demonstrate something else and pretend they are the same thing.” That’s just what the Grattan Institute has done.
In fact, all the major claims made by the Institute in this paper are wrong. It is not true that more women than men lost jobs and lost hours of work during this period. The true figures are readily available from ABS data and show it was mostly men not women who lost their jobs in this period: 2.6 % of women lost their job in the quarter ending May 2020 versus 2.9 % of men.
Look at this graph showing change in underemployment, which includes all employed workers who aren’t getting as much work as they would like:
It’s very clear that it is mainly men who are missing out on employment. Since November women have been better off in terms of underemployment than they were pre-Covid whereas men are only now back to pre-Covid levels.
All the details are there in my correspondent’s report, information readily available to those in the know. But naturally the false narrative promoted by Grattan has rarely been publicly challenged.
I’d welcome more exposés of this sort. It’s wonderful having a growing team of nerds to help throw a few spanners in the relentless feminist machine misrepresenting the true picture of men and women’s lives in this country.
National disgrace to die soon.
My mailbox attracts a steady stream of bile from my detractors. This week saw a typical example:
Message: You are a national disgrace and a truly disgusting, delusional human being. You think you’re ‘supporting men’ but you’re actually an embarrassment to humanity. Do the world a favour and shut up. The only comfort is that your archaic views will die with you soon and you will leave ZERO LEGACY.
What sort of person would send such vitriol in the middle of the night? Well, amazingly this time the author was not anonymous but proudly used her own name. She’s Amanda Stevens, a “consumer futurist” and apparently a renowned speaker and marketer. Amusingly, on twitter she describes herself as a “happy vegemite.” Clearly not so happy last Wednesday morning at 1.13 am.
Woke women and their poisonous friends.
Finally, on a lighter note, here’s the video of my chat on thinkspot.com earlier this week with American marriage coach Suzanne Venker – all about woke women and their poisonous friends.
We had a long, lively discussion about how dangerous women’s friends can be in undermining their relationships. Friends often contribute to women’s sense of entitlement and inflated expectations regarding the men in their lives, creating instability and destroying new relationships.
Men need to be warned about this risk to their relationships. Please help me circulate the video – https://youtu.be/bTJPtYB6Y5o
Until next time, Tina
