International Women’s Day is Socialist – References

#BalanceforBetter #IWD2019 #Socialism

To celebrate International Women’s Day and their Balance for Better theme I look at historical propaganda posters about women, women’s issues and socialism. People need to learn the socialist roots of International Women’s Day.

Our Immigration Minister David Coleman new decision will bar anyone who has committed violence against women or children from entering Australia. I am concerned that IPV is still being framed as a gendered issue at this level of politics.

25% of Men Feel Like Failures – References

#Men #Failure #Stoicism

I look at a recent survey that shows 25% of men feel like a failure and that they are worrying about Money, Health and other’s opinions. All concerns that can be addressed by adopting and understanding stoicism. I then look at the American Psychological Association’s recent guide for Men and Boys that lists stoicism as one of the harmful aspects of traditional masculinity.

Police Force Discriminates Against White Men – References

#Police #UKPol #GenderQuotas

Having only recently discussed the Gender Quota’s that the Queensland Police has in place, I look at the Cheshire Police discriminating against Matthew Furlong. The first successful case where a white man was discriminated against by Police recruitment in the United Kingdom. Chief Constable Janette McCormick should be embarrassed that her positive action policies are causing her Police Force to break the law.

Female Quotas for Queensland Police – References

#QPS #AUSPol #GenderQuotas

Prompted by a question at a recent Jordan Peterson lecture I look at the 50% female police recruitment quota for QPS. Reading through the Police Union magazine we find evidence of gender-based discrimination in other roles and services. We need to let our politicians know that this behaviour is not acceptable in “Fair Go” Australia.
