It is kind of strange.
But then again, it’s not.
I’m talking about the abuse dished out by ‘Yes’ extremists in the current debate on marriage.
I have not received all that much. The abuse sent my way has not really kicked up from the usual level of background noise that I routinely receive.
But I have seen it hurled at others. And those others are women. Under the shadow of the rainbow, we’re ‘progressing’ to a world where women can be absolutely humiliated, intimidated and denigrated.
For instance, earlier this week I was standing with a group of mainly young people holding signs along a busy Brisbane road.
They didn’t state anything offensive at all. They stated that it was ok to vote no. Like most of the others, I copped fingers. I copped verbal abuse. I copped veiled threats.
But I didn’t cop it all.
Two young ladies were spat at by a passing car.
This vile and criminal behaviour was not aimed at me. It was not aimed at the other fathers or the young men with them.
It was aimed at the ladies.
The age of chivalry is long gone. And now the marriage revolution is eradicating its memory. It can come as no surprise that the side that is seeking to banish the concept of motherhood has no qualms hurling phlegm at women.
This barbaric behaviour is not isolated. I was speaking with my good friend Kirralie Smith earlier this week and she detailed the level of abuse and vitriol she has received simply for stating that she’ll vote no. Some of it is shown below:
To be honest, I was shocked.
Not just at the number of intimidating messages that she has received. Not just at graphic homosexual and pornographic images left in her inbox. And not just at the hatred and the threats that some allegedly ‘decent’ human beings actually took the time to write.
I was shocked that these messages could be sent to a woman.
The ‘Yes’ campaign talks about respect. But it has none.
It does not respect women. It does not respect mothers. It does not respect wives. It does not respect daughters.
In fact, the ‘Yes’ campaign has so little respect for women that it would see all of these words, with all of the love that they symbolise, done away with.
The end goal of the ‘Yes’ campaign is clear in the new laws proposed in the Northern Territory. Under these laws the word ‘woman’ will be done away with altogether.
And under such laws, a man’s right to enter female bathrooms and female gymnasiums and to compete in female competitions must be protected. Fake transgender women have more rights than real women when the rainbow flag flies tall.
Anyone who stands in the way of this radical new order will be attacked. But women will cop the most abuse.
Because the ‘Yes’ campaign is fuelled by bullies and cowards as well. It’s easier for the ‘progressives’ to target women than confront men.
These people no longer understand what it is to be a lady or a gentleman. They don’t have any desire to be chivalrous. They would rather promote barbarism.
That’s where we are headed and we are almost there…
