By Warwick Marsh, published 17/3/2017

Sadly, Bill Leake died of a heart attack two days after his final speech.

David "If you believe today that a man is a man and a woman is a woman, you are a deplorable who is not keeping up with the times. No matter that every woman has two X chromosomes while every man has both an X and Y chromosome."

Well for a start that isn't true, humans can have XXY and XYY as well chromosomes. You can have a XY pair and be female because the SRY gene is not functional or it could have been triggered in a different sequence. You can also have two XX chromosomes and grown testes because you have duplicated SOX9 gene's. I could go on. my point is the world is more complicated then you believe it is.

Finally Ben Carlson is a young earth creationist so he shouldn't be taken to seriously outside of his area of expertise.

//One more thing! Above all, don't forget to laugh.//

Oh, I laugh at you mob all the time. Anti-bullying programs that are secretly radical sexual indoctrination dreamt up by the International Communist Conspiracy? That's frigging hilarious. Attempting to portray yourself as highly knowledgeable when it comes to human biology when you've apparently never heard of Klinefelter syndrome, Turner syndrome etc. Pure comedic gold. How do you guys come up with this stuff?

//So, what can we do as mother and fathers who care for the future of our daughters and our sons, and who want to take a stand against the insanity of political correctness or should I say Cultural Marxism through our society?//

Those of us who watched Monday's Q&A would have been fortunate to see national treasure & author Mem Fox give her views on political correctness, which were pretty much spot on. Essentially, what she said was that 'political correctness' is just new-fangled jargon for the old fashioned virtue of politeness, and what's wrong with that?

It's a good question, although apparently asking it makes one a Marxist even if the closest you've ever come to reading the Communist Manifesto is reading Animal Farm. Not really sure how that works. Maybe one of our resident Tories would like to explain the connexion between politeness and the radical redistribution of wealth? This should be entertaining...

...the ideas our politicians come up with these days are utterly ridiculous to begin with.

Never a truer word spoken! Who needs cartoonists and court jesters when we have politicians.

No matter what, Bill Leak's death will always be associated with the Human Rights Commission and the total gutlessness of the Turnbull Coalition Government.

Unfortunately, some of the best are missing: e.g.

Science Fiction Class: "Write an essay about how Alberta Einstein proved we celebrate Australia day on the wrong day"
Screen shows:
E = M*C^2, where
E = Exclusion
M = Misogyny
C = Capitalism

"Out of of cultural sensitivity to some of our more devout Muslim pupils we have decided to relax the school rule banning the beheading of infidels"

You can see them here (click on "Bleak view":

Sadly Bill has met his predetermined date with destiny. But before he got there, used considerable laconic humor and cut through satire, to make some folk just take a good long hard look at themselves?

And follow that often confected outrage, by just owning their own, often antisocial behavior.

The Irish have a saying, life can't be taken too seriously, after all none of us get out of it alive. And on the subject of lunacy, folk who think they need a psychiatrist, ought to have their head examined. I think wherever Bill is now, he'd probably agree with both those sentiments?

For about a millisecond, I thought Toni Lavis had written something intelligent for a change. But no, she thinks the Safe Schools program is about bullying.

No, it's not. If it were it would be about ALL bullying, not just bullying of the 2 per cent who might think they are sexually "different".

No, Safe Schools is a dating service for paedophiles, run with the collusion, in particular, of the Gillard, Turnbull and Andrews governments and the teachers who promote that crap in schools. Plus, of course, Roz Ward and the rest of those who infest the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society at LaTrobe University.

http://unsafeschools.org/the-australian-safe-schools-program-la-trobe-university/

If Lavis thinks the Safe Schools program has anything at all to do with bullying, she hasn't been paying attention. Ward openly stated her goal of spreading cultural Marxism via the Safe Schools program, following the American model developed by Kevin Jennings, when she addressed the 2015 Marxism Conference at Melbourne University. There's nothing "secret" about that.

Continuing her inane theme, Lavis says Mem Fox is a "national treasure". Mem Fox, the loyal supporter of her husband, Malcolm, who was convicted of sex crimes he committed in the 1980s with a 17 year old male student. And Mem Fox reckons political correctness is just old fashioned politeness? Apart from the totalitarian silencing of anybody who disagrees, you mean? And the bureaucratic bullying and intimidation from that clown Triggs and her lackeys? That sort of bullying is OK, huh? It's OK to bring the full force of state power against a cartoonist and some students just because they should learn to be "polite".

Bit of a pattern developing there. At the very least, a pattern of gross ignorance on Lavis's part.
