Footballer called to be sacked after lewd act.

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.

mitchell-pearce-dogVideo 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:

  1. He is not female.
  2. He is popular.
  3. 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.

Pearce in sober times

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.

Anne-Marie Slaughter: Why women need a men’s revolution – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Anne-Marie Slaughter, the best-selling author and former White House advisor, says the gender revolution is stuck at a halfway point because society has not been willing to address the roles of men.

Professor Slaughter, who famously penned an article under the heading “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All”, told Lateline that women have been liberated from their traditional roles but the same has not been done for men.

“You can’t change the roles of women dramatically and say you can now be like your father and do what men traditionally did and not equally change the role of men, because you get stuck,” she said.

Professor Slaughter was the first woman appointed to the role of director of policy planning at the US State Department, a job that meant she lived in Washington during the week and commuted home to Princeton on weekends.

After several years of trying to balance a demanding job and the needs of her family – particularly a rebellious son – Professor Slaughter quit and returned to a role at Princeton University.

When she penned the “Can’t Have It All” article for The Atlantic in 2012, she was criticised by sections of the feminist movement for betraying the cause.

Professor Slaughter, now the president of the New America foundation, spoke to Lateline about what has changed since her original article was published.

We still treat our sons differently to our daughters

“I looked at my sons and I thought, you know if I’d had daughters, I’d be raising them completely differently than my mother was raised. I’d be raising them to have a career but also to invest time in their families. But my sons were still being raised the way my father was raised.

We still tell our sons, your role in life is to have a career and support a family. We women still expect our sons to be breadwinners even as we ourselves understand that we need to do both.

We have to change the way we treat the men in our life.”

Men need their own revolution

“We’ve liberated women essentially to be men, to do the work that men have traditionally done, and in the process we’ve devalued the work that women traditionally did; the work of care, the work of nurturing. You can’t have a halfway revolution.

You can’t change the roles of women dramatically and say you can now be like your father and do what men traditionally did and not equally change the role of men, because you get stuck.

We now have to focus somewhat paradoxically on men and on valuing that work of care, whether women or men do it.”

We need to support ‘strong, confident men’

“We need to be able to look at a man who has a career, who has a set of goals, but who also says my family is going to come first and see him as a strong confident man who’s willing to break gender stereotypes.

Those men are pioneers, just as much as Germaine Greer or Betty Friedan or Gloria Steinem were pioneers.”

Money matters

“In the United States, childcare for two children costs more than rent in all 50 states. This is where you need public policy solutions as well as workplace solutions. I am among a very narrow band of privileged women who buy our way out of these problems.

If we focus on care, what we’re saying is that the government has to provide an infrastructure of care, just like you’d provide bridges or ports or broadband. That allows all couples or all parents to have access to paid leave and a high quality childcare and increasingly, elder care.

She wanted to retitle the “Can’t Have It All” article

I never meant to tell women that [they still can’t have it all]. I would have loved to have retitled the article because what I thought I was saying was why women still can’t have it all, meaning, here are the changes we have to make so that women can have the same options as men.

I now try and get away from the whole not having it all conversation because it’s not useful, it makes women sound selfish, it just isn’t a good way to go, but to say we still have a lot of changes we need to make until we get to full gender equality, I think that is self evident.
