Community Safety Gender Equality Homelessness PM gives homeless beggar $5 Daily Mail Australia Aug 18th 2016 Vigilantism Rumour Spread Social Exclusion & Comment by Pete Dowe



#genderequality #genderpolitics The thing that strikes me about giving a destitute man $5 is that men are sympathetic when they are defeated/ beaten by life.
Of course the hypervigilant "proactive" self-appointed good people also "profile" someone as homeless and male and make negative assumptions and conclude "watch out for them. Pass it on"
I experienced "technical #homelessness" as a consequence of #bullying and a dispute over the family #will
I did not look happy about my circumstances/ injustice/ lack of recourse/ housing and financial pressure are incredibly stressful.
Getting shafted sucks big time. It also struck me that I wasn't allowed to look unhappy to suffer.
To reiterate this was no concern for me. But concern to portray me as a "time-bomb"
What strikes me about the PM 's gesture which seems to be a common response from women also
is the notion of the stressed man being a "time-bomb" and subject of ridicule and fear-mongering yet if I had been lying on a blanket outside Woolworths I would have been sympathetic "acceptable"
Cage the Tiger but make sure he has food and fresh water daily.
A woman who gave a homeless man $5 asked if there was only something more she could do to help?
I would say to any female wondering that to "support gender equality and gender-equal application of the law"

Mr Turnbull was on the way to speak at his first major economic speech since he was re-elected as Prime Minister at an event run by the Committee for Economic Development of Australia.
The event was held at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in central Melbourne.
But his speech did not go quite as planned after he was ambushed by protesters during his speech.
At least three protesters bearing placards reading 'FFS [for f***'s sake] close the bloody camps' interrupted the Prime Minister as he stood behind the lectern.
Mr Turnbull was forced to temporarily abandon his speech as the protesters were dragged away by security staff.
