'Perpetuating the myth of only one gender of perpetrators leads to the gender specific approach to crime the male as #potentialperpetrator the assumption of the bad man, guilty until proven innocent and now the law-abiding male as potential #timebomb Danger UXB!

Honestly if law-abiding males aren't up to snuff your attitudes are unreasonable and unreasoning.

The Dis-Respect Agenda

“Sentimental insistence on female innocence,” suggests The New York Times, “does no service to women, who should be treated as human beings with a capacity for aggression and held equally accountable for their actions.”










I read this recently and was going to cut #stevebiddulph some slack because he wrote it over 20 years ago but then he repeated the same views in The Age this week. Disseminating/ perpetuating the myth of only one gender of perpetrators. This leads to the gender specific approach to crime the male as #potentialperpetrator which we have today. The assumption of the bad man, guilty until proven innocent and now the law-abiding male as potential #timebomb Danger UXB! "He hasn't done anything wrong YET!" tick tick tick tick All Males are a 60 Minutes ad?
Really so much pseudo community safety is talking about things that aren't wrong because it might lead to something wrong. Might be misperceived as leading to something wrong. This creates a power imbalance, leads to the rise of the “finger pointer” as community servant. And the disempowered hapless target is supposed to justify their existence. Live on other people's terms in fear of being misperceived.
The Dis-Respect Agenda
Honestly if law-abiding males aren't up to snuff your attitudes are unreasonable and unreasoning.
If someone really was a ticking time bomb how would you defuse the situation? By hounding them? Denigrating them? Holding them up to ridicule/ contempt/ social exclusion? Great! That's really helpful. Steve your attitudes are fear disguised as care. They legitimise pointing the finger. They legitimise bullying in the name of pseudo community safety. There is no concern here for Male wellbeing. Male suicide. Men are just stupid and wrong, defective females, they should be like girls. Man bad woman good Male wrong female right
