Australian safety survey kills feminist distortions
The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS)
Personal Safety Survey has finally emerged and
along with its appearance, the statistical myths of feminist's
victimhood and women's class oppression - particularly those relating
to claims of epidemic violence against women - have immediately
silence is deafening.
survey reveals a picture of what any rational person should have
assumed about life simply by observation of the world around them and
their day to day existence in it. The survey reveals what most people
should have known or should have suspected about the facts of social
violence - it is men rather than women who have the most to fear
regarding their personal safety. It further reveals that the
perpetrators of violence, in all their ugly forms and diversity, are
not just men, and that the domain of perpetrators includes a
significant percentage of women.
are few surprises in this survey other than it seems to have been
conducted with appropriate propriety. A refreshing breath of fresh air
given the lies and spin of so many preceding studies and surveys
conducted on this subject.
before delving into some its facts and figures, there are a couple of
points that should be clarified about the survey itself.
surveys go, it seems to have been done responsibly. It has encompassed
a sizeable sample of the population - 16,300 adults in total, about
0.1% of the Australian adult population - so its findings could be seen
to be a reasonable reflection of what's really going on in Australia
today. That's excellent. However, for some peculiar reason, over twice
as many women were surveyed than men - 11,800 women compared to only
men's experiences of personal safety as valid as those of women? Did
they expect that women's experiences of violence would be more valid,
diverse or significant? Or was it simply a matter of funding as is
implied in the survey's notes? Whatever the reason for it, and there is
no fair or justifiable stance that could possibly be taken for this
glaring discrepancy, the question remains, why were men relegated to
being less than second class respondents?
will provide an answer?
one, you can bet, and you can go figure it for yourself, but perhaps we
can hope this imbalance will be addressed in any further surveys where
the sex of the respondents is relevant.
now though, when digesting the results, it must be realised that the
men's data should be seen to be less accurate than that of the women.
In fact, in some cases, reflected in the ABS tables, the data for men
is so shabby that annotations have been made indicating that the data
are of dubious reliability. Given the importance and far reaching
social implications of this survey, this exclusion of men's experiences
is a travesty of their rights as taxpayers and citizens of the nation.
Especially as it turns out that men are singly the most severely
effected members of society where personal safety and violence are
treatment of men is a clear statement by the John Howard Liberal
government that they see Australian men as being second rate and less
than half as important as the women of the nation. Yet, in the
Liberal's defense, it must be argued that they are the first government
in Australia to include men in such a survey - previous Labor
governments simply didn't care about the safety of men and only ever
conducted safety surveys for women. That development in itself is at
least some consolation for Australian men and is a positive step
other glaring concern about the production of this ABS survey was the
sexist exclusion of men as interviewers. 100% of the interviews were
conducted by women. The survey does point out that male interviewers
were available upon request for those respondents who may have been so
inclined, however, it reports that all those interviewed accommodated
the default female interviewers. It is therefore important to realise
that the 100% use of female interviewers could possibly have led to an
underreporting of spousal and partner violence of men by females due to
personal embarrassment in front of women interviewers.
these sexist anomalies however - in a national survey of this
significance, one could have at least expected squeaky-clean adherence
to equal-sex political correctness - the survey reveals for the first
time much important information about personal safety and the victims
and perpetrators of personal violence. A subject, which has long been
obscured by the murky fog of feminist advocacy.
survey has revealed some very important truths about social violence
and has exposed feminist lies. The following statements, derived
directly from the ABS survey, are just our initial findings and a
fuller investigation by readers of the finer detail is encouraged.
Unfortunately, the ABS has presented its findings in a way that may not
be readily interpreted by men's rights advocates in the form they are
used to seeing them, therefore we have represented them, expressed in a
way with which our readers will be more familiar.
statements below compare the freshly published data to the often
colloquially quoted rhetorical statistics of feminist propaganda and
remember this, these are official Australian government research
figures and not some trumped up biased university faculty's data or
those of some politically biased independent non government
- the ABS survey has revealed that -
are more than twice as likely as women to be the victims of violence
and are being physically or sexually assaulted or threatened at the
rate of up to 2 incidents per second
are not the victims of family (domestic) violence as often as the
quoted 1 in 4, nor even 1 in 8, nor even 1 in 10, but actually 1 in 100
are not being raped every 26 seconds, nor even every 90 seconds, as
feminists frequently claim, but are in fact experiencing sexual assault
- not necessarily rape - including both reported and all
unreported incidents, at a rate of less than 1 per 5 minutes.
This is a rate 91% less than that which feminists have previously
ratio of female to male family (domestic) violence victims in a home is
not 99:1, nor 9:1, nor even 5:1, but is actually closer to 2:1
statements above are all calculated from the ABS survey data without
corruption. They are the figures.
course there will be some deviation from the survey compared to real
life figures, just as in all studies (read the fine print of the
survey) but, remember, the data for women is more than twice as likely
to be accurate as it is for men and the data for men may have been
tainted by the use of default female interviewers, some of whom may
even have been staunch feminists, possibly resulting in underreporting
of men's experience of family violence as victims.

notes relating to the above table -
The numbers of men and women in each cell are ABS published
extrapolations of their survey sample of men and women, which was
approximately 0.1% of the adult population of Australia.
The percentage figure in each cell is the ABS published percentage of
the total male or female population of adult Australians affected by
that particular issue.
The ratio statistics are ABS published extrapolations of their survey
sample and represent the percentages of the total adult population of
either men or women respectively.
The rates of violence perpetration (expressed as n per hour)
are our calculations based solely upon the ABS data simply divided by
8,760, the number of hours in a 12 month period - the period of
reference used for the ABS survey.
in conclusion, what does all this mean?
means that Australia as a nation is the first in the Western world to
undertake a survey of adult personal safety and violence based on the
sex of the community. It has both massive and broad implications for
social scrutiny and the politics of sex and violence. It stands as a
precedent for further world development and application.
also has immediate application to other Western societies. Australia,
being a contemporary Western nation has been subjected, more or less,
to the same political influences over the last half century that have
been experienced by the USA, UK, Canada, New Zealand and arguably most
other European nations. The data recorded would be directly applicable
to other Western societies, more or less and may be quoted as a being
from a highly reputable source.
results of this survey should be seen as the first authoritative sample
of non-advocacy research on the issues of Western social violence and
in particular, inter-sexual personal violence. Especially in light of
the fact that no non-advocacy bipartisan surveys of this subject have
ever been conducted by any Western nation before.
results are both revealing and deeply informative. Revealing about the
incorrectness of previously published feminist advocacy research - and
subsequent government information too - and informative about the dire
state of violence perpetrated against men in modern civilised Western
data also provide the basis for a requirement for Western governments
to become focused on the safety standards of its men as a top priority
and to begin to recognise that there are serious deficiencies in its
treatment of men in society.
survey also amplifies the ludicrous state of Western government's
pursuit of highly expensive anti-violence campaigns and legislation for
the least affected victims of personal violence - women - whilst a much
more serious problem of violence exists and is being waged against its
men. It also establishes facts that require governments and anti-male
NGOs in Australia to immediately rewrite their literature and websites
which state false and misleading statistics about personal violence, in
particular, men as overwhelmingly family violence perpetrators.
should also lead to an immediate nation-wide reassessment of family
relationship management and Family Law values.
no wonder that feminists, the government and the mainstream media in
Australia have been so quiet about the release of this new survey. It
exposes a huge raft of feminist baloney, lies and deceptions.
