No idea why the men on this thread seem to be swarming around just one women!...


Meanwhile, we look to have some rather serious stereotyping to overcome to gain a richer cultural equality all round for the benefit of all:

Cannes faces backlash after women reportedly barred from film screening for not wearing high heels

... The red carpet at the Cannes film festival is an elysium of old-fashioned glitz and glamour, but the festival faced controversy on Tuesday after it emerged that it takes the odd bout of tyrannical fashion policing to keep it that way.

A group of women ... were turned away from the gala screening of Todd Haynes’s Carol for allegedly not wearing high-heeled shoes...



Racist and anti-immigration views held by children revealed in schools study

Survey of 6,000 schoolchildren finds many have a wildly distorted view of the number of immigrants in Britain, negative attitudes about Muslims, and pessimism about their own future opportunities...

So tell me, who doesn't like Germaine Greer besides you, Wiggo and Chris S, all males I believe?


Well Julie Bishop shut her up not long ago so try this article

http://www.smh.com.au/entertainment/tv-and-radio/qa-panellist-germaine-greer-shut-down-by-julie-bishop-after-shocking-bali-nine-question-20150310-13zj5p.html

I wish she would just bugger off and don't come back

Sorry Glenn, the story you posted doesn't have much to do with your claim.

A panel discussion and shock horror these women don't all have the same opinion on something. The women on the panel all seemed to be having a reasonable discussion. What has that got to do with women supposedly disliking Germaine Greer?

Yeah you do. I really don't see anything wrong with the article. Sure, if you rip the 'nature took revenge' bit from the context of the article it sounds a bit harsh. But within the context of that article, it sounds just fine.

And face it, Steve Irwin was undoubtedly a nice guy, but it was just a matter of time before some animal mauled him for not giving it space. Sorry, but if you spend all your life wrestling with snakes or putting your head in the mouth of a crocodile, it should come as no surprise that one day it goes wrong.

and some quotes from her

http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/g/germaine_greer.html

Nothing particularly objectionable there as well.

I particularly love this one:
"Libraries are reservoirs of strength, grace and wit, reminders of order, calm and continuity, lakes of mental energy, neither warm nor cold, light nor dark."

Мишель let's put it into perspective she wrote that article only a few weeks after he died in 2006 . She didn't even wait for the family to morn his death . There was no reason for her to pick on a good man he never said one bad word about her . There has been no retraction or appology to Bindi his daughter or his wife and son . It has peed everyone off over here . It was uncalled for and to attack a dead man that was also a good man was wrong and in very bad taste . It's not the first time she has done somthing along these lines .

And just so she gets notoriety ! 'F'her mate

Message 1681761 - Posted: 20 May 2015, 13:17:31 UTC - in response to Message 1681577.  

Here is a very thoughtful and first-hand topical comment to move towards what can be done to move forwards for one large area at least...


Viewpoint: Islam v feminism?

... So I watch with a mix of utter fascination and revulsion at the apparently continuous trickle of young women from Britain making the journey to Isis-controlled territory in Iraq and Syria. Why would intelligent, seemingly well integrated daughters with bright futures ahead of them, enjoying the liberties granted by modern democracy, want to travel back in time to the darkest of dark ages?...

... I have questioned and continue to question Allah and His words. My new-found relationship with God and His words has nourished and set me free. It highlighted the importance of taking responsibility for our religious learning. It also shows the power invested in those who read and interpret scriptures for and on our behalf...

What struck me was the extent to which religious tradition can be used to excuse violence or challenge it. I was enraged to hear that Islam was used in the most perverse ways to maintain women's vulnerability and persecution and enable the perpetrators, who are usually men, to coerce and control them...

... How different would things be if women owned and were part of the production of religious knowledge. Surely it's no coincidence that one of the first acts of social policy and justice in the Prophet's message was the banning of female infanticide so ubiquitously practised at birth by Arabs at the time.

Therein lies a lesson for us all.

Sorry but thats just a load of bull. Her criticism were on point. Face it, Steve Irwin had an almost compulsive need to mess around with about every animal he encountered, often for no discernible purpose other than to entertain and prove what a tough guy he really was. The fact that he was no doubt a pretty nice person to other human beings is irrelevant for this fact. And being dead should not make someone immune to criticism, nor create some kind of barrier for other people to reflect on what a person did during their time on this planet.

Nor should Greer have to apologize for this to the family of the deceased for speaking the (uncomfortable) truth.

And honestly, the whole revenge by nature idea isn't that weird. It was my first thought as well when I heard he got killed by a stingray. Honestly, I think a lot of people thought that, remembering all those times he had to tackle some poor animal who did nothing to deserve the treatment they got from him.

Realy so how would you catch a salt water croc mate . I spose we should not relocate them to safer places then .
I spose he wasn't a champion of the great barrier reef and never set up his zoo to look after the animals he rescued , he did it for the money .

Germaine Greer is a nasty piece of skit whom should have at the very least waited till he was in the freaking ground , she has no morals at all .

If you ever come out here and are in the top end of Australia and your inland from the cost about 150 miles go for a swim in the nice creeks and billabongs mate . Also go for a swim in the surf and make shore you do it during December - March the wet season please .

You want to know why i say that do your homework about Australia mate to find out .

Oh please, don't pretend that Irwin only ever touched animals if it was absolutely necessary, because often enough it wasn't. I don't doubt that he had overall the best intentions when it came to protecting animals, but good intentions don't excuse questionable methods. And putting animals in zoo's isn't really good for those animals.

Germaine Greer is a nasty piece of skit whom should have at the very least waited till he was in the freaking ground , she has no morals at all .

You can disagree with her opinion, you can even find her opinion distasteful, but you go too far when you say she is a 'nasty piece of skit' because she has an opinion. Incidentally, that would exactly be the kind of misogyny someone like Germaine Greer has been railing against her entire life.

Honestly I have no intention for now to go to Australia. And if I went I would go to the South coast around July. I know, winter season, but I can't stand warm weather ;)

Mate you really are peeing me off you don't get it do you you silly boy .

there is common decentcy and then there is just a person trying to get publicyaty at any cost .

it's not what she wrote so much in the article it was the fact she didn't wait for him to be buried before she opend her big mouth .

if i remember right that article came out before he was even buried

Shall i say that agin so you get it boy


if i remember right that article came out before he was even buried

And as i said go for a swim next time in the creeks and harbours when you come out here in the top end .

You can go for a swim even 150 miles inland and still get eaten by a freaking croc and they are very big , you wont see them coming . You got any idea how many people have been eaten by crocks ? And it's usually some stupid torist that thinks ah that water looks real nice , so as i said go for a swim mate .

oh if you swim in the ocean don't worry it's not the sharks you have to worry about it's the Box Jelly fish the most poisonous sea animal there is .

Last year more than 50 crocks where relocated just from Darwin harbour.

salt water crocks are a protected animal and have been for decades and why there are so bloody many of them in the wild . You think your safe swimming in the ocean then think again there SALT WATER CROCKS which means they swim in the freaking ocean so you are not even safe at a beach unless it's petrolled by life savers .

Where do you think he put all the crocks that where to close to people , in the zoo . Relocating them is not always a option.

So really, the only reason you dislike her is because of what you consider poor timing. Meh, whatever suits you. I'm of the opinion that the content of the article was critical but not particularly disrespectful, and therefor its timing doesn't matter.

And as i said go for a swim next time in the creeks and harbours when you come out here in the top end .

And it's usually some stupid torist that thinks ah that water looks real nice , so as i said go for a swim mate .

I do actually have an idea of how many people get eaten by crocodiles. About 2-3 annually, with 2003 being an exceptionally deadly year when 6 people died because of crocodiles. All in all, the chances of dying because you get mauled by a crocodile are not that high.

That said, even if I were to visit Australia, I would have absolutely no interest in swimming in any kind of river or ocean.


oh if you swim in the ocean don't worry it's not the sharks you have to worry about it's the Box Jelly fish the most poisonous sea animal there is .

Again, no interest at all in swimming in the ocean.

So much for your moral then ay .Hope someone diss your father or mother only a few days after they die and then you might just get some morals and understand

yep your one of those stupid tourists alright that only knows what he can find on the net . You don't get mauled mate you get killed then eaten a few days later . Also if they did not relocate so many each year you would have a very high chance of being eaten not mauled .only very lucky people whom have people to fight the crock off get mauled , most get eaten . But what can i expect for a student that lives in Europe .
As for not swimming is that because you can't swim or your to white and will blind everyone once you take your cloths off .

Whatever, I probably wouldn't give a damn if someone halfway across the world wrote a critical piece about my mom or dad. If anything I would be surprised that someone halfway across the world gave enough of a damn to write about my mom or dad.

Nope, if we talk about getting mauled, the numbers are a bit higher, but not by much. See for yourself. Unless you have a source that suggests these numbers are way to low, I will remain unimpressed by the threat of crocodiles. Also, how am I a stupid tourist if I clearly expressed my complete lack of desire to ever visit your beautiful country?

As for me not swimming, you are right about how blindingly white I am. But thats not the real reason. The real reason is that I just don't like swimming in oceans, seas, lakes or rivers. I don't like swimming all that much, but if I have to swim, I'll go to a pool.

Nothing wrong with the figures but however it doesn't tell you how many people are in that area does it .

considering there are not many people up that way the risk is high . You would have more chance of getting eaten by a crock than a shark . There are millions of us in the ocean each day but only a few people get mauled by sharks . So by comparison if there was as many people up in the top end you would see dozens of people get killed .

Anyway good your don't wish to come here you need to grow up a bit more a child that thinks he knows all .

And you seem to not be able to read . I DID SAY IF THEY DID NOT RELOCATE AS MANY AS THEY DO YOU WOULD SEE those numbers go way up .

50 per year are moved from Darwin harbour alone . If they did not move them a lot of people would be killed as it's right next to the dam city of Darwin . which has 127,000 people

Her quote and Steve Irwin have absolutely nothing to do with Feminism. I thought the problem people had with Germaine Greer was her feminism, yet all the criticisms seem to be character assassination rather than about her feminism.

So to get actually on topic, what of her feminist stances do people actually have problems with? Мишель has already raised the issue about her stance on transgendered people.

Anything else or is all about crocodiles?

people here arn't to peed off about the feminist thing Ess as much as things she has done like the Erwin thing and i have already said this .
I know many women don't like some of her quotes and Wiggo has already said .

I did also say don't mention her name to Australians she is not liked and it was the Erwin thing that has pushed people to really hate her . What wiggo was talking about was a bit before i was here in Australia .
So i only know what i have read about .

She has used things like Erwin to promote herself and has nothing to do with her feminist ideas it was a publicity stunt and very bad tasting one at that . As Wiggo has said she makes out she is on someone's side when in fact she is just trying to get publicity for herself as that article shows . If she had waited say even just 6 months then it would not have been so offensive to many Australian and show us she don't care about anybody but herself as Wiggo has said she has been caught out by the very people she was spose to be helping and it's always been the people that she say's she was helping that have dobed her in .
I do know what Wiggo is talking about when he says she has been caught out so i'll try and find the thing he is talking about but not tonight .

She is a lier and a con artist and has no morals and nasty , rude , and i'll finish with this

It has been reported in the press that in early 2000, Greer claimed at a press gathering in London that she never set foot in Australia before receiving the permission of the "traditional owners of the land" at Sydney Airport. New South Wales Aboriginal Land Council spokesman Paul Molloy was reported as claiming that she had never asked permission, despite visiting Sydney several times in recent years, and in any case there was no single group of elders that could give such permission to enter Australia


as i said a lier just seeking publicity anyway she can
