Catherine Lumby has called for professional footballer Mitchell Pearce to be removed from the game after he performed a lewd act in front of a group of women.
Video proof surfaced in January this year that later went viral.
What was it all over? Pearce was drunk at a party and dry humped a dog.
Before you go nuts over that last line and believe Lumby’s justified with her request, he was clothed (at least his privates were covered at all times) and the dog was unharmed. The women who filmed the ‘act’ took their phone footage and then sold it to the highest bidder. Now the woman’s advisor to the Rugby League is calling for his head to roll over it. Nice eh?
Catherine Lumby needs to sit back down and calm down.
Who hasn’t done or said stupid things at parties? I’ve seen women spontaneously dry hump men who didn’t ask for it to be done to them. I’ve seen women fall over, expose themselves and then spew venom at men for the embarrassment they caused themselves. Like this news story, their behaviour was completely outrageous, nothing like what a man would do to a woman in public, definitely not anything like what Mitchell Pearce did on camera in the privacy of a hotel home. But here he is being asked, nigh, told to give up his career for what he did on camera.
There are three big differences in his situation:
- He is not female.
- He is popular.
- He was filmed.
These so-called ‘offended’ women who saw the performance didn’t leave the room. at all. They could’ve gone at anytime. No one tied them down and made them stare. If they didn’t like what they saw they could’ve done any amount of things to stop the offending act from being watched. Instead, they chose to stay and provide him with an audience. They laughed. They filmed it and thought about the many media outlets they could approach with their exclusive story after he passed out.
Party videos have no place in the sober world. None of them make sense after the booze has gone. I say let the guy go. He deserves no more than a little shaming from the coach and the threat of being dropped from the team if he were to do it again. The club doesn’t need fools representing them.
I tell you who needs punishing though: Those bitches who stood around and looked on, laughing at and with him. Perhaps they weren’t even invited to the party but weaseled their way into it so they could be closer to someone famous and say they partied with him. They need to be named and shamed for filming a private showing and then distributing it. I think it’s fair if they’re going to hang his career on it. They need to be taught how to use their phones properly. The need educating on how to be proper and decent human beings. They need to know that a private function isn’t meant to be a public one simply because they took their phones along. Auctioning off a video isn’t the right way to go solving a problem if indeed there was a problem at all… unless that problem was a financial one, which is an entirely another problem altogether.
The media outlet who bought it needs a lesson or two on decency too. It’s not like they don’t have private parties of their own. Christmas time is renowned for making a few photocopiers smudgy and bringing out what would ordinarily be inappropriate jokes in mixed company. I bet there’s a few skeletons in those closets that prefer to remain hidden. The newsroom should’ve turned them away.
This is a clear case of a misandrist, feminist society hell bent on bringing males to their knees at any opportunity.
Give me a break. I’ve seen acts worse than that at my local karaoke bar.
