@Houghtontweets Drug policy has failed to stem the supply of illicit drugs. We need better policy that treats recreational drug use as a health issue while redirecting resources to target manufacturing, distribution and sales. #betterpolicy
@AfricaMediaOZ Idle hands, idle minds. A change to the welfare system to encourage people to get out into their community and become engaged and proactive as “Australians”. Do you think those of African heritage are different to othe...
Brothers let’s spend more time celebrating boys, men and fathers and ignore those that hate on us.
Where are the Australian companies that value men and will say it publicly?

The irony for me is the fact that the feminists are quick to jump on the bandwagon of there’s no differences between male and female, and then in the same breath segregate the two when it suits. And moreover, it’s widely known that both men and women possess both masculine and feminine energies, some women possess more masculine traits and vice versa. So my question is, why not put woman who identify as majority masculine in these campaigns also? My guess is because it won’t fit neatly into their narrative. And lastly, this idea that if a man objects in any way to this campaign, then this was made for people like us. It’s ludicrous to the point of comical.
Double standards again, why hasnt the ad been withdrawn and Gillette apologized like Peter Alexander had to with there "boys will be boys " ad.
I think that's what Gillette tried to do but through a feminist lens.
This is a good opportunity for a case for a "Mens department" in parliament etc. Get the rhetoric right and it is strong. Acknowledging toxic masculinity, putting in methods to address it whilst also championing the majority of Men who do the good things is how we can become not only the more developed gender but even class of people.
I.e african community ignoring african crime issues... if we acknowledged our issues we can show people how it can be done
Fred Pawle, here is an excellent response to the Gillette ad you posted. Now this would make me buy their razors
An excellent counter to the unnecessarily divisive Gillette ad. It’s just such a shame that ads such as either of these had to be produced in the first place but that is the result of the current narrative being promoted by Government, media and corporations against men and boys as being the sole perpetrators or potential perpetrators of DV. And if you don’t happen to agree with this narrative ( even if it is in a respectful, passive manner) the vilification and accusations will fly from those that do. Gone are the days of respecting other people’s opinions which appears to be part of their narrative and methods of operation.
Men are men...
Women are wo..men.. so they are part men too..
This is brilliant
Really good add that doesn't demean anyone.
It’s one of those topics that needs discussion, I agree with it whole heartedly.
It’s the way in which the narrative is swayed, and not so subtlety may I add.
There is also another glaring point in all of this, for me at least.
As most people are aware, passive aggressive behaviour is just as egregious as “regular” aggressive behaviour. To put it bluntly, if any man or woman uses passive aggressive behaviour to inflict harm on another person and then think it’s ok because they didn’t raise their voice or use physical force then in my opinion it is just as bad. So now this is where it becomes convoluted, it becomes harder to prove passive aggressive behaviour because of the very nature of it.
I’m by no means a clinical psychologist but rather a person who has a fascination with human behaviour and also because I have 4 nieces that range in age from 13 to 21, and what better way to understand human behaviour than to study what’s right in front of you.
Marketers are now bidding or banking off defining men/ manhood.
Gillette (Razors) and Egard (Watches)
My take on observations ....
“We don’t cave on the closest of shaves, for by the edge of a Sword we are defined’
Watch a man tower in the darkest of hours, discerning the days of these seasons and times”
I actually loved the original ad, also the fact they are putting money to charities to help young boys/men, to minimise suicide rates.
I am happy to see a movement, that supporting the future generations to be better people. Gives me hope for my son in the future 😊
I find it absolutely sickening and unjust for all men to be painted with the same brush. I have known and know many men who have never done anything wrong by a woman, who have protected their female friends against other Woman, who have the most respect for woman and who provide a stable life for their spouse. This attack on men is beyond ridiculous especially when you see woman becoming more and more jealous of other woman just because they dress nicely or look after themselves and when you hear and see the insults fly and the bitching and slut calling woman do to each other. To be honest, I think this ad campaign should be run in other countries where woman are looked at as sex objects and beaten because their husband of 30+ years their senior decided the woman needed a beating just because. I’ve seen countless videos of men in the middle eastern countries murder or disfigure their wife because they can, but I’ve seen and heard countless woman beat and stab their spouses because they are mentally out of control not to mention the woman stopping the father from seeing his kids.. Not all men are like what that advert depicted and I’ve seen woman sexually assault and sexually harass men just as much.
The real crime here is having to pay a lawyer $300,000 to prove ur innocent!!!
All these women should be jailed for false allegations 🤬
The same should be done for those women that lie about violence, threats and abuse and lodge AVOs, DVOs and FVOs. I had to spend all day at the magistrates court in Canberra yesterday to defend myself against and ex wife that uses the system to be vindictive and seek revenge due to close relationships I have with my children.
Then to top it off, the whole thing is negotiated down but I still have to have an order placed on myself for absolute rubbish and lies.
She should get 10 years, not 3
Only 3 years is an insult.. so bloody sad!
I am a victim of domestic violence, and of lies to obtain an uneeded Intervention order...
My ex was charged twice for domestic violence, yet no Intervention Order placed on her...
She has claimed breaches of the orders to try have me locked up so she can take our kids that I took from her for safety reasons...
I live my life in fear of further claims of breaches, and possible prison time if she does claim more...
I suffer from severe depression, and on more than one occasion considered ending my life, all because of these issues and a lack of logic by our so called government... WHEN WILL THE ONE SIDED SUPPORT STOP???
For 6 months my partner friend abused my kids, why the mother turned her back. I beg child protection and police for help . When the child abuse got so bad , child protection blamed me for it, completely ignoring the fact I was the one reporting it.
It should happen more often!
False allegations ruin lives and make it harder for those who are true victims to get justice.
Hopefully this makes other women think long and hard before telling lies to ruin someone else’s life!
The truth to this matter is some lawyers use dvo for there financial advantage while family's are torn apart.
And every other bullshitt faulse aligationns that they make an can make because the fuckwhitt law allows them too with out proofs what a bullshitt bullshitt law this country has got obvious all about money making nothing else
About time these women gets punished for lying. It is not right to ruin someone's life because of lies.
Im currently facing FALSE charges of assault. I now have major deprssion, anxiety. The problem is real
Reap the consequences of trying to destroy another persons life.
Show this case to Gillette and 1000s more like it and ask for a new advert.
And how unsurprising that the story isn't on their social media feeds.
Similar stories seem all too common
A toxic spineless system, people who have such authority and lay down orders can’t even get there own backyard in order , this is another all to familiar story. Shame
Why did she only get three years? Oh well, hopefully she goes into a supermax women’s prison...................
Hope she gets savagely beaten daily in there
Yeah im going through this right now. Literally have her blackmail threats right here and the courts didnt evem care
I can understand how this bloke feels. I totally agree with his grievances.
What about financial compensation for him. 300k out of pocket just in legal fees. He either had an alibi or not. Justice system..what justice?
Has Clemintine Ford reported on this?
I thought that the law supported women lying under oath (Julia Gillard) - great that she was jailed but was she charged for perjury- does anyone know?
How can the charge be dismissed when she breached the order.
Oh that’s right the legal system is crap. Magistrates aren’t held accountable.
Females don’t commit DV or even lie about DV.
Mat Oliver she breached an AVO and the case got dismissed 🤔
We have a full time carer, who has done something previously bad enough to justify having an AVO against them.......who gets drunk and abusive and violent and a former PM is witness to this incident.........and the carer is suitably arrested and charged, and the media twists the story to make her look like the victim.......and she cries sorry and says it won’t happen again (despite clearly this not being a once-off, as there was already the AVO in the first instance)..........and the charges are dismissed????????
That is brilliant.
I am sure she and every other female DV instigator has learned their lesson..........whilst we have males with charges or locked up, with nothing more than lies told to try and hurt them, as evidence...........
Good old fanny pass.
What a joke.
Slim to none.
Male bad guy JAIL nil questions asked
I was assaulted in an unprovoked attack by my ex-sister-in-law. It was all caught on my go pro with audio and when I gave it to QLD Police the officer watched it and said it is clearly assault.
Nine months on from the assault and countless letters from my lawyer to QLD Police and QLD Public Prosecutions and they were not going to charge my attacker as it “was not in the public interest”.
So it just shows that our justice system is a joke and that I am worthless and not a worthy member of the public.
so still reporting that he protected her etc when it's been established the male was the victim..
Mary Murphy hows this one?!?!?
Makes me sick
They never mentioned that on TV news. Never let the truth get in the way of a twisted story.
Brothers parental alienation is child abuse and the current family law system, domestic violence legislation and child support policy enables it while rewarding the emotional and psychological abuse with cash payments as incentives.
Until you’re actually living through the nightmare of parental alienation you could never believe someone could intentionally abuse your children by withholding their access to you as a parent.
It is child abuse that leaves long lasting scars in the lives of children, parents and grandparents who are traumatised by emotional and physiological abuse that often goes on for years.
Our job as a federal political party is to criminalise this behaviour and hold the abusers accountable for their actions.
Here’s our #PolicySnapShot
FAMILY VIOLENCE REFORM
Our policy will enforce a zero tolerance approach to all family and domestic violence. Domestic violence legislation will be amended to ensure services and support will be provided to all victims regardless of their age, gender or sexuality.
We are better together...

I delt with this for years, 6yrs infact. My Daughters thought i was the beez neez, they loved me unconditionally as i love them, but now after 6yrs i have finally had contact with my daughters and it's not as it was, they don't even trust me enough to let me know where they live, ive never done anything wrong to warrant that, so i 100% know things have been said that are completely untrue. it kills me because we only have one shot at this life, all those years my ex stole from me and my daughters can never be replaced 😢 moments meant to be enjoyed lost forever due to one parents selfishness.
My daughter loved me. Was daddy’s little girl. I’d see her every weekend then her mother moved 6 hours drive away so we’d drive up there. Then one day she didn’t want to see me. Not hard to guess that something was said. I haven’t seen her in over two years now. I can only hope that one day she remembers me and comes looking.
My ex took off back to Ireland with my son and never came back to Australia, she effectively abducted him, and after 4 months I eventually got in touch with him, and she promised she was coming back "next month" for another another 6 months I fell for this lie, until it became too late and I had no recourse to get him back here. Previously we had an arrangement for child support outside of csa as they are one of the crooked organizations going, but now she has applied for child support through them ( from Ireland) and the CSA here have obliged 🤔 - she was already getting money from me and many things bought online for him - even though she abducted my son, then applied for child support outside of this country it was granted to her! The CSA only care about their own existence and screw father's over.
What about the parent that does keep texting on occasions wanting to see their child the other parent finally makes arrangements then the parent they dont live with doesnt turn up . Is the parent the child is living with protecting the child from continual hurt or is it still alienating the child .
I don’t understand why both mothers and fathers continue to do this to their kids. I was 16 when my parents split up and, under the circumstances for them separating, it was my choice whether I continued my relationship with my father or not. My mum left that choice in my hands. And I couldn’t imagine my life without my Dad. Whether I was 6 or 16 I need them both!
Some kids mother or father walk out of their kids lives and choose to have nothing to do with them, there are parents out there WANTING to be apart of their kids lives. Put your egos aside and do what is best for your child. 😞💕
‘Enables’ read ‘encouraged’. The so called ‘Child Support Agency’ actively encourages alienation so the payer (usually the Father) has to pay as much as possible, therefore the government has to pay less!!! Nothing to do with Child Support!!!
Mandatory jail for perjury!!!
As a victim of this I say there must be harsh penalties for this child abuse. Jail penalties to stamp it out.
it is a living hell i live through it everyday
It makes my blood boil!! This IS child abuse!!!!
Until the perpetrators are threatened with jail, this will not stop. It is clear child abuse!!
Alienation from your child is the most heartbreaking experience for both child and targeted parent
Jail the abusers!
My ex has started to with hold my kids from me, haven't seen or heard from them in a month. All phone calls and texts have been ignored. At my wits end. Really don't know what to do.
What a system, lucky there improving mental heath services, because there making the patients who will need the service.
For the benefit of Australian families thus Australias future.
So sad 😞
Im one happy happy grannie that you and your special girl get to be togeather and i know that little miss loves being with you
Cuts to the quick.. family law court and departments are not doing their jobs lack insight lack training lack ethics principals and even morals ... the legislation and courts lack it all.. childrens voices should be heard first and foremost.
Same situation myself 😞
Bring on a judge that this has happened to...
Then we will see how the tables turn
It's been a year I managed to call her for Christmas as my ex was taking her up to see my family that I wasnt invited to because my family have sided with her for some unknown reasons but yeah found out from her they were going up there to see my sister and family behind my back .... they are all now dead to me for putting me and my wife through this bullshit because they would rather see my ex and my child them have me see her..... maybe down the track we will be united again I'm just scared she will turn out like her mother.....😢
The system is a bloody disgrace, manipulated by nasty exs
Every ABF Party candidate has lived experience of the failures of social policy. We will fix the family law, we will reform the child support agency and we will ensure domestic violence policy protects all victims regardless of their age, gender or sexuality. All we need is your vote. #Vote1ABF They will be remembered!
EXACTLY THE WORDS OF ONE NATION.
YOU CANT SLAY THE WOLF BY SLEEPING IN ITS DEN!!!
PEOPLE POWER UNITED IS THE ONLY WAY !!!
Here’s one for you. The gift that keeps on giving. In 2015 I contested my last family lawyer payment (almost 10k) after my trial ended in no contact with my 3 children. Total cost was almost 200k. I paid the bill a month later but in that time they started a court proceeding (without me knowing) and now my credit rating is shot.
