The grip of feminist ideology on our key institutions : Comments

By Bettina Arndt, published 18/5/2018

I am orchestrating a campaign to protest the dismissal of Rob Tiller who was forced out of his job for posting on his private Facebook page an article I wrote on domestic violence.

Just putting aside the slide into religion for a sec, and returning to the actual Bettina Arndt article...

It pays to read/view/consider funding the sites Bettina provides:

"A protest campaign [1] has been launched, including a crowd-funder [2] for money for his legal fees and the costs of establishing a full-time private practice offering counselling and workshops. Iíve made a YouTube video [3] where Tiller explains what happened to him."

There is no denial that males are over represented when it comes to causing severe physical injuries to another person. Drug and alcohol abuse is a very large contributing factor, and if we could stop the abuse of these drugs, the level of domestic violence would fall dramatically.

Erin Pizzey said that she could not extrapolate her own personal experiences growing up in a dysfunctional family.

would it not be fantastic, if we could stop domestic violence escalating to physical violence and death.

Just a few comments on the video...

He says violence and aggression generally from both sides...Generally is a nothing term. Some women getting beaten by a stronger male fight back before going to hospital.

He's always taken an interest in working with men...Bettina has a motor mouth.

When men act out aggressively it is GENERALLY a cry for help...What we punch first then seek help...lmao

Bettina...interjecting weird philosophies a bit much. WOMEN ARE EXPERTS at pressing buttons. WOW! Quick Bettina it's all the woman's fault.

Gee 1/3 of men are victims of domestic violence when you ask the males the others are too scared to say. Come on this is rubbish. Sure some women hit but 1/3 plus? Stop listening to violent men telling hard luck stories Bettina.

I have never come across one relationship where the woman is initiating the violence. Has Bettina lost perspective?

Bettina seems unprofessional. Surprise surprise a man had a degree in Gender studies and reported this guy. Why the surprise surprise Bettina...His PhD not good enough for you?

Show us what he had on his screen.

He was offered a choice and resigned. So he did resign. Of course he wasn't allowed to contact his clients...That's the big bad world, not great but it depends what he had on his screen.

Does Bettina ever show us the evidence? What was on the screen?

He expected a reprimand so it must have been something controversial. I can't watch any more...

So let's do a survey here... In all the domestic violence cases you know of varying from bullying, threats to violence how many people here know the woman initiated the violence?

I know of 11 - Men 10 women 1. We had a neighbour and a friend in volatile relationships and the women would have driven me nuts but I wouldn't have gotten violent so they are 50/50.

So men 10 women 1. But the men always gave a really good hard luck story justifying hitting the missus. Strange that!

Are women sometimes in the wrong...Yes! I don't trust what they are saying! Sorry

I want to give thanks and credit to Bettina Arnt for writing this article.
Well done.

Bettina,
You've identified the 'what'.
And you also recognised something else which you referred to the final two words of your article.
Whether consciously or not you've recognised 'design'.
And so now you must realise you've only begun to scratch the surface of this story and that the real story is yet to be told.

You've identified the 'what';
Now tell me 'why'.

What is the 'design'?
Whose 'design' exactly is it?
Where did it originate?
And
'Why' is it the 'design'?
What purpose does it serve?
To what end?

I look forward to hearing more from you on this topic.

Things I typed above may me misconstrued so I had better correct them.

When I said "The men always had a good excuse for hitting their missus...that was sarcasm. The good excuse was in their minds only - not mine! The men always blamed the women for their own lack of self control.

The two 1/2 points I gave to the women make up the 1 woman. So no one woman was responsible for the violence in my experience. The men's reaction to the confrontation was to throw furniture and push.

So the 1/2 points against the two women were very harsh on the women.

Where was the guy when he accessed his Facebook page to make the comments that were reported? Was he at work? Again why wasn't that explained.

If you place things on your Facebook page accessing at work that go against the general principles of your employer most employers would dismiss. Again we are flying blind on this.

I couldn't watch the entire video because my time is more valuable than to watch that mess. Bettina kept interjecting so we missed any explanations he may have wanted to make.

The fact that he chose to say the line that ended in the patriach when it comes to whose to blame was an indicator of perhaps a bias to men but there was not enough evidence to make that assessment.

Finally the real statistics that we should analyse on domestic violence is the police stats... Not the claims and counter claims of those involved.

In Qld Police Stats 2016-2017 http://www.police.qld.gov.au/corporatedocs/reportsPublications/statisticalReview/Documents/2016-17/AnnualStatisticalReview_2016-17.pdf

A total of 25,678 offences were reported to police, equating to a rate of 524 offences per 100,000 persons.

Males were more likely to breach of domestic violence protection orders (85% were male) compared to females.

52% of all offenders were arrested and 22% were served with a notice to appear.

Sorry I haven't got time to study this document fully. But if 85% of the breaches are men can we blame women pushing buttons? Not likely!

More stats I haven't reviewed http://www.whiteribbon.org.au/understand-domestic-violence/facts-violence-women/domestic-violence-statistics/

http://www.aihw.gov.au/reports/domestic-violence/family-domestic-sexual-violence-in-australia-2018/contents/summary

Something aint right!

Opinionated 2,

firstly Police stats are not reliable or accurate.
