"Rule of Law IS One Size Fits All"
"Solidarity with female criminality?"
"We need a system that protects the vulnerable, punishes the guilty and saves lives.
That's why I was joined this morning by Minister for the Prevention of Family Violence, Fiona Richardson, at Government House to formally present the letters patent to formally establish Australia's first Royal Commission into Family Violence to the Governor of Victoria.
The biggest law and order issue in our state is unfolding in our homes. The Royal Commission will give us the answers we need and nothing will be off limits."
Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews

I do hope the Royal Commission into Family Violence acknowledges Male victims also if we are truly to "protect the vulnerable, punish the guilty and save lives."
Are these deaths not equally tragic Chief Commissioner Lay?
I also argue re female violence/ female domestic violence
that girls/ women also need to stand up and change their thinking.
It's not ok if a girl/ woman does it!
Sorry Chief Commissioner Lay,
I do not support a separatist approach to the issue of domestic violence,
indeed all physical and emotional violence,
which focuses solely on female victims/ male perpetrators.
Should we only sanction male perpetrators?
Should we only care about female victims?
Emotional Violence/ Violence/ Domestic violence/ Murder is clearly wrong
no matter who does it.
I argue that the separatist message has failed women by being ineffective
and that it is wrong to ignore victims simply because they happen to be male.
When people ask “Why isn't the separatist message getting through?”
They ought to ask “Why persist with a message that is being ignored?”
If people ignore the messenger, Chief Commissioner
CHANGE THE MESSAGE!
