Peter O’Brien: Men Need To Change Their Behaviour

Yesterday, Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews put out this tweet in response to an, admittedly tactlessly worded, warning from Vic Police that everyone, particularly young women, should be mindful of their personal security when walking alone at night:

So our message to Victorian women is this: Stay home. Or don’t. Go out with friends at night. Or don’t. Go about your day exactly as you intend, on your terms. Because women don’t need to change their behaviour. Men do.

That statement is jaw droppingly stupid and it astounds me that no-one has called Andrews out on it.   Could there have ever been a more asinine public statement, on any subject, than this.  It is virtue signalling par excellence and, if taken literally, is likely to put more women in danger.

‘Men’ do not commit these crimes.  Anti-social misfits do and they are not going to modify their behaviour at the behest of anyone, let alone a moron like Andrews.

Humans are a flawed species and some specimens are found within the ranks of men.  It will always be thus.  To tar all men with this infamy is not only grossly offensive but also counterproductive.

    This tragedy has been capitalised on by feminist witches who hate men because they are mentally disturbed and pathetic manlets who think that white knighting will get them laid (like the raison d’etre for most of corporate Australia’s laughable *diversity* programmes).

    Obviously a vote catching exercise to bring in the feminists, who fall for such nonsense. I don’t think really he would advise his wife or daughter/mother/sister to go about walking in dark parks at night. Would he?

    but but but…..he was only referring to white men

    With a .45 on your hip.

    Except that we are governed by fools, policed by fools, all who insist that we are disarmed.

    If anyone is culpable in this beyond the vile bastard who did this, it’s government and police.

    Come home safely, or don’t.

    I’m not planning on changing my behaviour… but that’s largely irrelevant because I’m not intending to be there either, and after Victoria’s crime has been allowed to skyrocket, there’s really not a whole lot of value in further communication between Premier Daniel Andrews and myself. Sooner or later Victorians will figure it out for themselves.

    We’re governed by children.

    The only reason to comply is literally fear of legal consequence.

    There is absolutely no reason to respect them or their authority.

    so what’s the difference between me giving a common sense warning to my child when going out and the police doing so, especially as they have to deal with these incidents, where the rubber hits the road, every day? if it gets out will i get hectored up and down on social media? will someone tell them to ignore the old man because the world is really just populated by fairies in the bottom of the garden?
    Some of this stuff is beyond parody. The half witted naivety of this latest semi-adult generation, encouraged by populist politicians jumping on the bandwagon, in still believing in fairy tales is mind-numbing.

    So if men need to change their behaviour, I’m assuming that also includes Andrews, if he wants to stereotype.

    Unless of course he has discovered his own gender fluidity and this month he’s reaching for the lippy, plucking the eyebrows and donning a frock and high heels. (I just made myself shudder with that vision).

  16. IainC

    It’s a 12 year old child’s solution to a complex societal problem. Asinine is being kind, fatuously infantile is getting closer. Male violence is, like IQ, on a spectrum, and 5-10% of men WILL be violent towards others with little to no self restraint. Another 85-90% would be capable of violence if sufficiently provoked beyond their normal restraint boundaries, but otherwise lead peaceful lives until the end. The solution is, what can we do to limit the 5-10%? Asking them to change is (insert contemptuous phrase here), because there are already severe penalties for violent behaviour, prisons being full of the ones who got caught recently. Unless Mr Andrews implements eugenics to breed this out (oh, how the left would love to bring this back!), we are stuck with it, and normal people therefore need to take precautions. In the same way you lock the house up, or don’t leave $5000 lying on the front seat of your car (although you are perfectly entitled to), prudence and an awareness of the realities of life will suggest maximizing your chances of avoiding trouble or danger. Not walking alone late at night is one of them, at least to those with any common sense. Explaining to your attackers while you are being bashed senseless, that it is they who should be changing their behaviour, may give you a warm inner ideological glow, but it is still unwise. Perhaps if the media could get some comments from grown ups we might get a more nuanced perspective. (IainC of The Ponds)

  17. None

    Yes, but it is men who rape women

    Men also rape men and women also rape men and other women. You just don’t hear so much about these others.

    Thank you Peter, well said. I’m sick and tired of asinine patronizing comments like those by Daniel Andrews. I’m sick and tired of women – or other victims- being used as political fodder just to score a few cheap political points and/or votes. I was almost half expecting Daniel Andrews to use the fact that the r-a-pist was bullied at school as cannon fodder for safe schools but then hey he wasn’t gay so I guess not. We’ll leave it up to the judges’s to let him free but then again his victim seems like an inner city lefty so maybe not this time. Victoria is a toilet and a young woman just paid for it with her life.

    Yes, there has been a stack of nuns accused of raping women & girls and even men and boys.

  21. nemkat

    Graeme Ashton has refuted Andrews, and said singleing out particular groups doesn’t work.

    Sounds like the victim was a bit compulsive, so it was only a matter of time before something happened.
    Being named Eurydice <a href="Eurydice: GreekMythology.com – Jun 14, 2018″>mightn’t have helped, either.

    You need some red pills Cary.

    You are not in touch with reality.

    You have been lied to.

  23. John Barr

    Does this mean all men or just the few arseholes who give the rest of us decent men a bad name? I get the feeling here that feminists regard “all” men as Rapping murderers of women.

    I haven’t seen the same amount of toxic talk aimed at the women who murdered her boyfriend by burning his house down recently. Does this mean that “all” women are cold blooded murderers?

  24. stackja

    Before civil libertarians decided to give [email protected] ‘rights’, women walked unmolested.

  25. I was thinking about this today and thought the statement was absurd in so many ways.

    Firstly, it tars all men with the same brush (the feminist view). It’s a small minority of men that have severe mental problems that cause them to behave in this way. Just like a small minority of women are similarly afflicted.

    Secondly, men have been victims in these situations as well. Perhaps even more so when it comes to random acts of violence at nightclubs, pubs, on the streets etc.

    But most importantly, words are not going to alter the genetic disposition of anyone who is predisposed to any form of violence. Andrews is proving just what a dolt he is.

  26. Don’t worry about being attacked by a terrorist anymore – it is up to Muslims to modify their behaviour and police the behaviour of their fellow Muslims to ensure your safety, phew! What a relief.

  27. Cary

    No point in avoiding the problem which is that men use their strength to overpower and rape women. Not all men, but enough men. There’s a pattern here as all history attests. It’s beyond personal willpower, self-restraint, or behavioural change to remedy tho, I agree.

  28. Blair

    “..women don’t need to change their behaviour. Men do.”
    Premier Andrews has to change his behaviour? What’s he been doing?

  29. nemkat

    The idea that anyone must be able to go for a walk in the park at midnight and every other person must be law abiding, attracts Compulsive people.
    That appears to be what happened here.

  30. Cassie of Sydney

    A few years ago, after having dinner at a friend’s place, I decided to take a short cut home and I walked alone through a very dark park in Sydney’s east. It was a very stupid and reckless thing to do. I knew when I made the decision to walk through the park that I was doing something risky. I was nervous and scared for the whole walk. Thankfully nothing happened to me however when I left the restaurant I tossed a coin in my head and I made a decision to take the short cut because it would slash 15 minutes off the walk home. It was my decision and it was a risk I went ahead with. So really, if something had happened to me, it would have been my responsibility as a grown woman. I suppose in a perfect world women should be able to walk through dark parks alone however we don’t live (and never have) in a perfect world. I wouldn’t go swimming at midnight because the chance of a shark attack is a lot greater than swimming in broad daylight. What happened to that woman was hideous and there is no excuse. However, as a woman I am really worried that this younger generation of women, indoctrinated by stupid feminism, are not advised and are not taught that the world they live in is a place where danger lurks.

    Please give us the figures you absolute fuckwit.
    Until we had Mussies rape was and still is undertaken by SFA of the male population ever.
    This is why femarxists in Uni’s have to invent sexual assault and looking at a girl is rape.

    Real men could fuck a stranger to death in a park no worries, but restrain themselves?

  35. struth

    Andrews has been an accomplice to r ape.
    He is pro Islamic immigration.
    Some of these boys and men ra pe because their religion allows it.

    So basically Andrews puts young women in danger of being ra ped, lets them have no arms with which to defend themselves, imports ra pists, and then blames all men for ra pe.
    Well, Andrews, you are indeed more guilty than most men for enabling ra pe.

    I notice Lone wolves can only be brown, it seems.
    There are no white lone wolves found…………………………….

  36. candy

    He killed her. So this is not just rape. Some kind of psychopath. First crime?
    Or released too early or his mental derangement not attended to?

    Imagine following a terrorist incident our Premier said this.

    So our message to Victorian’s is this: Stay home. Or don’t. Go out with friends at night. Or don’t. Go about your day exactly as you intend, on your terms. Because you don’t need to change your behavior. Muslims do.

    I don’t think so.

  40. Cary

    Some of these boys and men ra pe because their religion allows it.

    Yes, men do all sorts of things in the name of religion. Even Catholic priests and their enablers in the confessional or at Vatican level.

  41. struth

    Yes, men do all sorts of things in the name of religion. Even Catholic priests and their enablers in the confessional or at Vatican level.

    Well you may be young, but you’re definitely not a Swedish/ German girl.

  42. struth

    Shall we look at the numbers of Catholic grooming gang ra pes?

    It is a known fact that there are more sexual assaults in public schools yet yoof-ful Cary gets his “news” from the ABC.

  43. men doing wrong - or not?

    I agree bemused. Anyway, this is a social guilt statement by Andrews. It is silly.

    It is also interesting to understand the really strange but true phenomenon of rape of men by women. Look it up. It actually happens.

    To the point, rape is done mainly by a select number of men; hence, certain men need to pay for their (moral) crime. But all “men”? I do not think so! This particular man, in this particular case, needs to pay for his particular crime against that specific woman on this particular occasion. All “men” are neither guilty nor do they need to change their behaviour because they have done nothing wrong.

    Exactly what numbers are you talking about? Given the ABS statistics on the number of men vs women living in Australia: women outnumber men. So out of the 12 million men, how many are rapists and killers of women (or anyone for that matter)?

  45. Delta A

    after Victoria’s crime has been allowed to skyrocket

    The Andrews Government has removed much of the deterrent ie imprisonment in his soft approach to violent crime, particularly that committed by Muslims and PoAA*.

    This also diminishes the perceived severity of the crime, especially for people with impaired comprehension skills. I’m sure there are many (particularly extremist Muslims and PoAA) who believe that they can, quite literally, get away with murder.

  46. anonandon

    Note to self: Try and stop raping and murdering women so much.

  47. nemkat

    Andrews’response sounds uncomfortably similar to the response of Colonel Dyer to the brutal attack on an English Missionary, Miss Marcella Sherwood, in Armritsar in 1919.
    He ordered that all Hindu males using that street traverse the length of it on their hands and knees.
    Naturally, things escalated, resulting in the Armritsar Massacre.

  49. Chris

    Yes, men do all sorts of things in the name of religion. Even Catholic priests and their enablers in the confessional or at Vatican level.

    And based on the hatred of the politically correct in the media and Left, the one who stopped it is publicly charged and humiliated in the media.
    Leftists have truly vile values, filled with such hate that false prosecution seems like a way to display that they are good people.

    Story from a couple of years ago. Our daughter and boy friend were at a do at one of the Brisbane race courses. Some obnoxious female was out of control on the dance floor, splashing patrons with booze. A complaint was made by our daughter and friends and Ms Inebriated was escorted out by security. When our daughter left , she was king hit from behind by Ms Inebriated who had hung around to get revenge. Before she could lay the boot in, the boyfriend stepped in and ” restrained ” the young lady. Police turned up and guess who was cuffed ? The security lads turned and gave statements but our daughter’s boy friend still had to contend with a charge. Half of his family are lawyers, so that charge was arse puckered away by the QPS.

    Andrews has a most untrustworthy face, and his utterances bear that out.

  52. Chris

    Tonight I broke my habit and watched the ABC. They had a woman talking about the murder of Euridyce Dixon.
    This person told Australia that a woman was not most in danger walking home from work. She is most in danger at home with her partner.
    I read murder statistics, and I know the difference between risk reporting and slander of decent men. I am sorry, but I do not believe that I or my workmate or my brother or my father were most likely to murder the women we love.
    I am sorry, but the values being taught by the ABC and our universities are not honest. They pretend falsehoods are true for political reasons. I urge all Australians to look at what the ABC and all publicly-funded or subsidised organisations teach. And when you find they teach you a falsehood for political reasons, I urge you to remove public subsidy from that organisation.
    The ABC cannot be trusted. They despise ordinary people and they despise our experience and denigrate our values.
    Its time we removed public subsidy from this untrustworthy indoctrinator.

    Those cops are white knighting dickheads! Did they get laid by Ms Skank or not?

  56. Up The Workers!

    Dodgy Dan, aka Ali Baba and his 40 Parliamentary thieves, embezzlers and election cheats (there are actually only 22 of them – including the Police Minister, interestingly enough – but Wayne Swan still does all the “maffs” for the deep “finkers” in the world’s only Party too dumb to spell its own name correctly).

    Dodgy Dan reckons that women should just pretend that there is no danger whatsoever and ignore the hazards of the murderers, rapists, muggers, druggies, home-invaders, car-jackers, and itinerant Labor(sic)-imported terrorists set free on their 73rd or 84th or 97th concurrent A.L.P. gift of bail in the World’s Most Crim-Friendly City, Labor’s(sic) Mogadishu-by-the-Yarra.

    The last person to have done that was Euridice Dixon (just like Jill Meagher and so many other innocents before them), and look what happened to them.

    While the A.L.P.-appointed Ashton’s Circus Ringmaster is presiding over a Police Farce whose efficiency can be measured in the estimated 1,000,000 fraudulent breath tests done in the last couple of years, and its Police members are forbidden to chase or (Shock! Horror!) actually Catch any crims lest they actually apprehend any (Labor(sic) always looks after its own “little maaates”) the crims will always have the upper hand in Mogadishu-by-the-Yarra – both in the Spring Street sewer, and outside of it. The Ashton’s Circus Ringmaster could actually have boosted his 1 million fraudulent breath-tests if he had recruited the assistance of Dodgy Dan’s missus – but as we found out, she is evidently exempt from breath testing under the bent current regime.

    Maybe it is time old-school crims gave up their life of toil and just joined the Crims’ Party – after all, why rob a bank, a Milk Bar or a pensioner for a pittance, when you can rub shoulders with Ali Baba and his 40 thieves in Parliament and fleece the taxpayers of hundreds of thousands of unearned dollars every year?

    A.L.P. – Always Lenient to Perpetrators!

  57. manalive

    Following the arrest of some blokes including an Abdullah and an Ahmed after discovering a terrorist plot to detonate explosive devices in central Melbourne last December would Andrews have conceivably added: ‘… Victorians don’t need to change their behaviour. Muslims do’ … Don’t answer.
    That imaginary example is analogous to Andrews’ response in this case.

    Jonathan Green supported the Fairfax Frightbat on Teh Dumb recently, whereas Warren Mundine wouldn’t cop the man bashing.

  60. Tim Neilson

    Anyone who played sport at Melbourne Uni knows that Princes Park area well.

    If the newspaper reports were accurate, Ms Dixon was attacked at a place where she would have been unable to avoid traversing stretches of footpath that are almost totally dark (because of large trees blocking the street lights), and which is about a quarter of a mile away from any location where there might conceivably have been another human being to help or raise the alarm. It’s the darkest and most isolated spot that she could conceivably have been at.

    There’s no apparent reason why, given that she wanted to save money by walking (we’re told), she couldn’t have taken an alternate route which, while not absolutely safe, was better lit and less remote.

    Obviously I don’t know why Ms Dixon was there, and of course she was at liberty to do so.

    But a warning against repeating her behaviour is just basic sanity. The feminist scorched earth warfare against common sense on this issue is potentially fatal.

  61. Cassie of Sydney

    “The feminist scorched earth warfare against common sense on this issue is potentially fatal.” Well said Tim, that is what I tried to say in my earlier post. When I made that decision to walk through a dark park a few years ago in order get home faster, I knew whilst I was walking that I was doing a foolish thing.

    Those cops are white knighting dickheads! Did they get laid by Ms Skank or not?

    Reminded me of an incident about 30 odd years ago, a couple of cops took a sheila for a drive to the summit of Mount Coo-tha. Anyhow, on the trip back, the car went off the mountain and the sheila didn’t make it.

    Sorta woulda been explainable, and was, untill The Courier Mail got a heads up that the sheila was driving.
    Anyway, one or both cops resigned, can’t remember which.

  80. JohnJJJ

    The reality is that men have tremendous capacity for violence. The ability to overpower a person. Women do not. The traditional solution is to ensure that good men have the permission and expectation of society to restrain and punish bad men. We have lost this. So bad men will rule. No amount of education, training and hoping will changes this. Now that politeness, chivalry, morality and the concepts good and evil people have gone we are at the mercy of evil people. The first to be sacrificed, as we see every day, are the innocent and trusting young women. Congratulation feminists, you have created this.

  85. The Pugilist

    Punishment and deterrence…long lost concepts in the justice system in Victoria. Anyone male or female should be free to walk in public places. If you attack someone and murder them you should be punished with life in prison. Full stop.
    Why make it any harder than that?

    Cops arresting the wrong person is common when attending a public violence incident.
    My estimate is the rate of arresting the wrong person is One in every Three.

    General Duties cops aren’t selected for their ability to investigate.

    voters need to change politicians behaviour, until we are prepared to change our votes to people who will let us defend our lives, we’ll get more of this.

    Cary, at the end of the day, would you advise your daughter to walk through an empty park after midnight or not?

  89. BorisG

    As many repeated, it is so wrong, it is hard to find where to start,

    First of all , women (and men for that matter) should take sensible precautions.

    The flip side is that when it comes to their personal safety, women will probably be more sensible than listening to this idiot premier. Who probably doesn’t really believe his own nonsense, won’t recommend his own daughters to work alone in the dark, but is just engaging in virtue signalling.

    Secondly blaming all men for horrific crimes of a tiny minority is, well, hate speech.

  90. MichelLasouris

    Thinking about the situation today as opposed to life when I was a young bloke. Nothing much has changed as far as the attitude of many men to most girls.
    The one big difference is that we (blokes) would no more think of leaving a female friend to walk home than we could fly unaided. It just didn’t happen. The girls didn’t need to ask, it was a rule, no female walked home alone. Everyone knew with whom each girl left the pub/ party/ social gathering. the only people who left for home alone were the ‘spare’ males! I’m sure there were just as many predators out there; it was they didn’t get a chance to get into mischief. This attitude didn’t diminish the independence of the girls; generally they expected to be looked after, and we blokes didn’t mind a bit.

    Michaellazauris – yes.

  92. The reality is that men have tremendous capacity for violence.

    Tell that to the unborn babies killed by Planned Parenthood and sold for body parts in the US. The latest report says it’s around 13,000 late-term (fully developed human beings) abortions per year.

    I guess it all depends on how one classifies ‘violence’.

  93. I’ve changed my behavior.

    For all of my life, I’ve been told that women were “strong” and “independent”, and “needed a man like a fish needs a bicycle”.
    So now, unless I know a female personally (she has to be a relative, or a non-feminist acquaintance), I’ve stopped caring what happens to her.
    If she needs help, I will call 9-1-1 (something that she can do, too). But I won’t get physically involved in ‘protecting’ her or ‘rescuing’ her from an attacker — it would be much too easy for me to get shot, stabbed, or even arrested.
    If she has a flat or a breakdown alongside a road, I’m driving right on by her — after all, she can call for assistance as easily as I can; anyway, she could also easily be a lure for a couple of ‘boyfriends’ of hers that ‘need a car’, or be a psychotic with a penchant for making false accusations if I appear ‘too creepy’.
    So I’m happy to say that I have changed my behavior; but I’d guess that I’ve changed it in a way that women hadn’t counted on, and won’t be happy with the results.

    The behaviour that needs to be changed is obvious.
    We let women out of the kitchen and they fucked the joint.
    Not understanding the civilisation they grabbed control of, as they never led in the building of it or shed blood to preserve it.
    They are wired to need security above all other things, and if not found in their men, who they themselves dismissed from the roll of protector, seek it from government.
    This leads us to the big government Marxist state we are in today.
    Hysteria, (female trait) is what we are seeing today.
    Women need men and yet they, being as dumb as dog shit, don’t want to admit it.
    We need to change our behaviour most definitely.
    We need to get them back in the kitchen, where they belong.
    Maybe a slower pace of release combined with some training about our civilisation next time (way down the track) prior to release, should be the way to go.
    We have expected too much out of just one rib.

    The reality is that men have tremendous capacity for violence. The ability to overpower a person. Women do not …

    Violent abuse of children is more likely carried out by mothers.

    The Child Family Community Australia reports, “A British retrospective prevalence study of 2669 young adults aged 18-24 (May-Chahal & Cawson, 2005) found that mothers were more likely than fathers to be responsible for physical abuse 49 per cent of incidents compared to 40 per cent).”

    DHHS data in the UK shows that of children abused by one parent between 2001 and 2006, 70.6 per cent were abused by their mothers, 29.4 per cent were abused by their fathers.

    A report by Australian Institute of Family Studies released in October 2016 found, “boys were more likely to be the subjects of a substantiation of physical abuse, neglect or emotional abuse than girls.”

    The Oz provided some interesting background about Eurydice Dixon. Both her parents are “anarchist activists”, or at least her mother was until she died of a drug overdose. The mother’s obituary was written by Joseph Toscano, ’nuff said. The father is apparently a “lawyer”/has a law degree but lives in social housing. Eurydice herself was studying for a qualification in childcare, while also volunteering at a “vegan restaurant”. In other words, she and her parents were at several removes from reality. I don’t doubt that this unreal worldview contributed to her decision to walk home alone at midnight through a dark empty park.

    It reminded me of that female Italian ‘performance artist’ in 2008 who decided to hitchhike alone across Europe dressed as a bride, as a message of peace. That is, until her dead naked body was found under a bush by the side of the road.

    While I, as a woman, am saddened to see the death of chivalry and manners such as always walking a woman to her car or home, I can understand your attitude. It is, as you say, the only logical outcome to the feminazi mantra. The thing is most of us women don’t subscribe to that mantra yet we all suffer because of feminazi stupidity.

    I saw the vid of Eurydice’s final performance. She wasn’t very funny. She seemed nervous and self conscious. It was a heart breaking to watch. No matter how f***ed up her parents, cuckoo, it was a brutal, senseless, outrageous and tragic end to a young life.

    “No matter how f***ed up her parents, cuckoo, it was a brutal, senseless, outrageous and tragic end to a young life.” I second that.

    How many women today accept a gentleman’s help? When trouble occurs, men are blamed. Lose/lose!

    Another of your weird fantasies.
    When was the last time a strange woman genuinely needed your help?

    Another reminder, if one was needed, of how pathetic the Victorian Liberal Party is.
    Where is Matthew Guy’s condemnation of Andrews attack on men or his misleading women into yhinking they can ignore their personal safety,
    It is entirely possible that a change of government in Victoria won’t mean a better government

    JohnJJJ take a bow. You have encapsulated the issue, the problem, the reasons. You win the Internet’s for the week.

    Is this the same Daniel Andrews who sat mute in a meeting where UFU President Peter Marshall threatened former Emergency Services Minister Jane Garret … “I’ll put an axe through your fucking head”.
    Did Dan “call out” that threat against a woman?
    No.
    It was just “an emotional meeting”.
