"...the Prime Minister was a frothing blowhole of righteous outrage."
Funny thing John: Some of us have been having the conversations - with mates. Those with whom I've shared not only oblique tales re my mother and how she was treated by church elders and older brothers and anyone - brothers-in-law, too - once she was widowed which made her a magnet for the worst of men (early 1950s here) so that marriage to an older chap appeared preferable and a kind of protection. I've also indulged a little in reference to the childhood sexual assault I was subjected to aged 11 - within the protective "cover" of a fundamentalist protestant sect - and yes - my absolute belief in the woman coming foward with their tales of rape and so forth. It is all around. And just last night - a letter from one of my earliest students almost 50 years ago - kind and generous thoughts of me and my wife (then - before we married) and a tale as horrific as any - abuse from her mother's partner and one of his mates - and later - in aGirls' juvenile detention centre - Minda - abused by the Governor. I am with all those thousands of girls and young women responding to the revelations over the past decade or so of assault/worse by (in the main) the lads of private boys schools - of Brittany Higgins and that staffer (where is he at the moment - yet picked up?) and of Charles Christian Porter (he goes by his second given name) and how (allegedly) a fellow debater about whom he has the vaguest recollection until the details emerge - suffered his rape. It's beyond time for the mess of Scott and his government to be washed away.
"not all men" OK literally true, but statistically?
