Recently I listened to a radio interview. Bettina Arndt was being interviewed by Merrick Watts. Bettina was trying to draw attention to the fact that Scott Morrison had appointed a woman to be the first National Suicide Prevention Adviser.
Bettina was angry because suicide is an issue overwhelmingly affecting men. She asked Merrick to imagine the outrage if a man was appointed National Adviser on Family Violence. There would be a rage filled protest regardless of the fact that men make up one third of all family violence victims.
Yet women are only one fourth (and sometimes less) of suicide victims and the issues which lead men and women to take their lives are very different.
Bettina was alarmed by the fact that Ms. Christine Morgan works in the field of mental health and was already claiming this was the major cause of male suicide.
Bettina explained that recent studies clearly show that mental health is not the major driver of male suicide-it is relationship break ups and all of the related complications which ensue.
We know how the family court treats men. It ruthlessly rips their children from their lives regardless of who was at fault.
If there is violence perpetrated upon the man, either physical or emotional, he has nowhere to turn for support. Society finds such men unimpressive and unworthy of any compassion or support. In fact, they are often derided and mocked or considered hopeless failures when they find themselves living in poverty or on the street.
She also pointed to the high rates of suicide in rural communities where financial crises and loneliness are major factors behind the high rate of suicide by male farmers.
During the rather fiery interview, Merrick proved to be a pathetic feminist cuck as are all men who work in the media.
Bettina pointed out the rather pertinent point that the word men did not appear in any of the government’s official documentation on suicide prevention.
This fact was of no interest to Merrick.
I have written about this ubiquitous ploy in the past. It is truly a stunning revelation. One would think it would be impossible to write pages on the subject of suicide and not once mention the demographic which makes up 75-80% of all victims.
But our government manages to do just that on a regular basis.
This male invisibility when the subject of suicide is raised prompted me to revisit some other societal issues which overwhelmingly affect men but receive absolutely no gender orientated media coverage.
When I say “affect” I mean kill, cripple and wound.
Men make up around 94% of all victims of workplace injury and death. I want you to read this article on workplace death in Australia which appeared on the channel nine website two years ago.
Data reveals 157 Aussies left for work in 2019 and never came home
How do you like the headline? Men become “Aussies” Why don’t we refer to women killed in domestic violence incidents as Aussies?
Read it for yourself.
2:26pm Jan 14, 2020
There were 157 Australians who left for work last year and never came home, according to the latest preliminary government data.
The 2019 fatality statistics obtained by nine.com.au reveal worker deaths rose slightly last year compared to 2018, when 144 people were fatally injured at work.
Aussies employed in the transport, postal and warehousing industry face the greatest risks, with 55 deaths in this sector accounting for nearly a third of all workplace fatalities.
There were 31 workers killed in the agriculture, forestry and fishing industry and 24 construction fatalities.
Government agency Safe Work Australia (SWA) told nine.com.au the preliminary dataset was subject to revision, and covered deaths through to December 19.
Workers in mining, manufacturing, electricity, gas, water and waste services also recorded higher fatalities than most professions.
A separate SWA report last week revealed 107,000 Aussies had been seriously incapacitated in the 2017/18 financial year, needing at least one week away from their jobs.
The three most common reasons were stresses on the body, falls and trips and getting hit by a falling object.
Labourers, community and personal service workers and machinery drivers and operators filed the most number of claims.
Industries proportionally most prone to serious claims were agriculture, forestry and fishing, manufacturing and transport, postal and warehouse workers.
Top 10 worker deaths by industry of workplace, 2019
(Preliminary data, as at 19 December 2019)
Transport, postal & warehousing: 55 deaths
Agriculture, forestry & fishing: 31
Public administration & safety: 9
Electricity, gas, water & waste services: 6
Other services: 6
Arts & recreation services: 4
Wholesale trade: 2
Professional, scientific & technical services: 2
Where are the feminists demanding gender equity in most of these ten high paying professions? Diversity is wonderful for any workplace they tell us. In fact, it is crucial to have all demographics in our society reflected in the workplace.
Why so silent and invisible on these woefully male centric occupations?
Where are the quotas and affirmative action? Where are the breathless talk show hosts addressing this calamity?
The 2019 fatality statistics obtained by nine.com.au reveal worker deaths rose slightly last year compared to 2018, when 144 people were fatally injured at work. Aussies employed in the transport, postal and warehousing industry face the greatest risks, with 55 deaths in this sector accounting for nearly a third of all workplace fatalities.
Is it not breathtaking?
The word men does not appear in this article.
Yes. I must keep repeating it.
Can you begin to imagine how this article would be framed if 94% of all workplace deaths were female?
The word women would be in the headline and repeated at least ten times in the column.
It would also carry a paragraph telling us how this shocking imbalance is an indication of the lack of value we place on women’s lives and a disgraceful reflection on our society’s attitudes. It would demand change and prompt many editorials and head shaking speeches from politicians and tv hosts.
But it is men being crushed, crippled, blinded, amputated, burned and drowned. Therefore, we do not refer to their gender and we do not use any emotive language demanding a change to this imbalance and a call for gender equity in these deadly industries.
There are no editorials. No impassioned pleas for this carnage to end.
It can roll on forever as far as our society is concerned. Men die quietly and rarely complain about their life changing permanent injuries. They know their place. They understand they are not worthy of our tears and empathy.
Fifty-five women killed a year in family violence (and twenty to thirty men some years, but that is of no relevance) is called an epidemic. One hundred and fifty men dying at work has no name. Nobody has bothered to invent one to describe the loss of countless male lives.
I suppose it comes under the heading, “Shit Happens”
I located the government site on workplace death and injury to see whether men were given even a passing mention.
At the end of pages of all kinds of categories and statistics with no reference to men, I came across this table for those who wished to request information on this matter.

We base our statistical reports on data we collect from all states and territories. We also collect details on work-related deaths.
We base our statistical reports on data we collect from all states and territories. We also collect details on work-related deaths.
These reports give key insights into:
- work-related injuries, diseases and deaths in Australia
- workers’ compensation systems and
- work health and safety (WHS) compliance and enforcement activities.
Key work health and safety statistics
Key work health and safety statistics are an overview of the latest national work-related deaths and workers’ compensation claims, including trends.
We present data by industry, job, age group and sex.
Oh! There it is. Tucked away in a paragraph I found at the end of a section of the data they collect. Yet when I clicked on one of the links these were the categories I discovered.
Fatalities by age group
Fatalities by industry
Fatalities by occupation
Fatalities by state and territory
No reference to fatalities by gender. None.
It is truly beyond belief.
Let us move on to another issue overwhelmingly involving men. Homelessness.
The first website I visited was the Homelessness Week 2021. Here is what I read.
Launched by Minister Sukkar, Minister for Housing and Homelessness and hosted by the ABC’s Patricia Karvelas, Dr Angela Jackson, Lead Economist, Equity Economics will talk about her report commissioned by the Everybody’s Home campaign: Nowhere to go: the benefits of providing long term social housing to women who have experienced domestic and family violence. Angela will outline the impact of lack of access to social housing on women fleeing violence, and the economic benefits to women and the community of providing safe affordable homes, so women can rebuild their lives
This will be followed by a panel discussion including including Jason Clare, Shadow Housing and Homelessness Minister, Senator Mehreen Faruqi, Greens spokesperson on housing and homelessness and Angela Jackson
So once again, when discussing an issue where 75 to 80% of all of the people living rough on the streets each night are men, we have a number of mainly female politicians urging us to do more to provide long term housing for, yes, you guessed correctly -women!
Most of the women classified as homeless are not living rough on the streets. They are in government funded accommodation. Because they do not own the accommodation they are listed as homeless. Yet men who are sleeping on concrete footpaths or on park benches and often in freezing, life threatening conditions are not even valued enough to be mentioned.
But the worst was yet to come.
It was as I perused a human rights website that I came across the most stunning confirmation of the hatred and contempt our government, media and society feel for males.
The following information was tables on the Australian Human Rights Commission website
I looked at the table of contents. It was quite long.
I drew a deep breath when I saw the reference 5.2 in the contents.
Women are significantly affected by homelessness
It explained that women make up 42% of the homeless
(but not those living rough on the streets. Another sleight of hand trick these sick creeps use)
Let me quote:
Statistics suggest that as much as 42% of the homeless population in Australia is female. However, homeless women are often less visible than men and the extent to which homelessness affects women is often underestimated. Homeless women tend to remain out of sight, away from areas where homeless people congregate, for fear of violence, rape or other abuse.
The major causes of homelessness amongst women include domestic violence, sexual assault and family breakdown. These experiences force women from their home, along with their children, in search of a safer place to live. Women in these situations may find they are unable to care for their children and may be forced to place them in the care of family, friends or social services. Some women do not identify themselves as homeless, but rather as targets of abuse, unable to return to their homes.
Women who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless often lack control over their lives because they are dependent on others to provide accommodation. They may be pressured to enter into and remain in relationships that offer shelter, even if this places them at risk of harm, in order to meet their immediate needs and the needs of their families.
Women with disability are particularly vulnerable to homelessness. This is because they are more likely to face the causes of homelessness than men with disability and the general population. For example, women with disability have greater levels of unemployment, earn lower incomes and are at greater risk of physical and sexual abuse.
Women experiencing homelessness require specialised support services to cater for their particular needs. Such services include sexual assault and domestic violence counselling, pregnancy services, protection of physical safety, income support, and assistance with legal issues, such as parental rights.
For more information on human rights issues facing women, see our webpage on Sex
It doesn’t explain why disabled women are more vulnerable than disabled men or more likely to experience abuse.
It provides us with no insight into why far more of our men and boys are out on the streets. Perhaps they don’t care enough to ask a few of them.
Here is the entire table of contents.
Men are not mentioned once. Using a simple subtraction equation we can see that men must make up at least 58% of the homeless according to their statistics on women’s homelessness. It is of course far higher than that but I will settle for 58%.
How could any organization with integrity and genuine compassion deliberately remove the most badly affected demographic from sight on a website devoted to the problem which afflicts them?
The page informs us that:
The release of the draft National Plan builds on the Morrison Government’s commitment to a future free of gender violence, which is supported by the more than $2 billion investment in women’s safety since 2013.
The draft National Plan was informed by the National Summit on Women’s Safety, the Parliamentary Inquiry into family, domestic and sexual violence, the Respect@Work report, the Wiyi Yani U Thangani (Women’s Voices) report, and with expert guidance and advice from the National Plan Advisory Group and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Advisory Council on family, domestic and sexual violence.
How could it be possible that not one member of the committee or organization purporting to care about the issue of homelessness questioned the absence of the group we call men in the multiple pages of text in their documents?
It is inhuman and bigoted
It is toxic.
It is unimaginably cruel, cold and heartless.
These sick bastards truly hate men. They despise them.
This truth could not have been revealed any more emphatically than it was in that table of contents.
Imagine writing an article about the moon landing without mentioning Buzz Aldrin or Neil Armstrong.
Perhaps someone could write an article about the Holocaust without mentioning Jews.
Maybe a savvy sage could write an article about Waterloo without mentioning Napoleon.
None of the three suggested articles above should be considered any less unthinkable than the ones I have presented on suicide, family violence and work place death and injury.
I could weep when I think of the viciousness of this cancerous societal disease we are fighting.
It frightens me to be honest.
Before I finish let’s have a look at the way our government presents data on Family Violence.
Perhaps I am mistaken. Perhaps they have reverted to gender neutrality for all social issues.
National Plan to End Violence Against Women and Children 2022-32 draft released for public comment
The word women appeared eight times in the first two pages as well as in the title.
The second significant difference to the reporting on men’s issues aside from not naming the demographic most affected was the powerful, emotive language used.
“It is a national shame!”
“Sadly, the rates of family, domestic and sexual violence remain persistently high.”
“Shifting the dial on women’s safety requires a national effort.”
If you wish to see some truth on a page devoted to the invisible victims of family violence here is an excellent one.
There is no clearer, indisputably malignant proof of society’s contempt and hatred for men as a collective than this appalling vanishing trick used by feminists every day.
One final observation.
I saw a headline today which informed me that eighty-one people were executed on last Saturday afternoon in Saudi Arabia .
Once again, the word men does not appear but a little further research proved my gut feeling to be one hundred percent true.
All of those heads were hacked off the shoulders of men. Every single one.
Colour me stunned.
Women being banned from driving until recently has garnered far more world-wide attention that the rather humdrum slaughter of men in Middle Eastern countries. A human rights organization said many had not committed crimes which are capital offenses and should never have been executed.
They say Boko Haram kidnapped those schoolgirls because of their exasperation over the lack of any response in our western media and governments to their murder of hundreds of boys in Nigeria.
It does not matter what part of the world men are suffering- you can rest assured contempt for males and the utter lack of compassion shown when they are hurt or killed is a global phenomenon.
