That grubby shallow woke news platform news.com.au opened its report on the reaction to Bettina Arndt’s receiving an Australia Day honour – Member of the Order of Australia – with this sentence:
Australians have reacted with fury to controversial commentator and men’s rights activist Bettina Arndt being recognised in this year’s Australia Day awards.
When the dominant PC class talk about ‘Australians’, they mean people who think like them, hold the same intolerant views, and work to disqualify those disagreeing with them. The news.com.au report is nothing more than a one-sided listing from the usual suspects of all Arndt’s crimes, the worst of which is her advocacy for men. Cub reporter Ben Graham’s report was headlined:
A controversial commentator and sex therapist who’s stoked fury among feminists has been given an Australia Day honour for her “advocacy for men”.
There can be no greater crime in Australia than sticking up for men and resisting the tsunami of abuse pouring from the demented feminists who infest all corners of academia, the public service, and government. A representative sample from ‘journalist’ Sherele Moody:
“Arndt’s work is not about gender equity. It’s misogyny-driven hate designed to keep women barefoot, pregnant and tied to the kitchen sink.”
You would think that after all the millions of feminist words denouncing men, Moody could be a little more inventive. Her appearance would indicate she has no place whatever for men of any sort in her world (see following post with Janice Fiamengo latest video).
There has been plenty of support for Arndt from those recognising the appalling anti-male bigotry rife in Western society and the growing disadvantage of men and boys. Janice Fiamengo and Karen Straughan are foremost among those. (Links to the Fiamengo File episodes are in my feminism page. ) What Bettina thinks exactly about the issue of men and feminism can be found on her website.
