PK on the fainting couch

Patricia Karvelas reports that this is not just any outrage.

There’s continued outrage over the offensive behaviour of students from Melbourne’s prestigious St Kevin’s College.

The senior school boys were en route to a weekend sports carnival in their school uniforms when they were filmed singing a misogynist chant on a tram.

The scandal has deepened today, with ten students being suspended, while the school’s headmaster has apologised and launched an investigation.

Karvelas then discussed this troubling crisis with the Director of Violence Research and Prevention at Griffith Criminology Institute. As you do when schoolboys sing a bawdy song.

    I am shocked by the ABC!

  2. struth

    Who are the ones outraged?

  3. Beachcomber

    Imagine that, teenage schoolboys behaving like teenage schoolboys. Our State behaviour-control overlords at the ABC will not permit it.

  4. Tintarella di Luna

    The ABC outraged by Schoolboys singing a bawdy song but will not report on the conviction of a paedophile in their midst – hypocrisy much

  5. areff

    Good Ship Venus? Charlotte the Harlot?

    Which grossly offensive, misogynist lyric were they singing? Anyone know?

    On 3AW just now, a reporterette from one of the dailies was saying school authorities are blaming “a few alphas males”.

    The rest of the student body and staff are, presumably, well adjusted epsilons.

  6. Nob

    Doubt if it’s any of the old ones, “… and his voice could be heard as he shoved it up another bird, you’ll get the Jack if you hang around with me”

    Surely the world has tired of confected outrage.

    No?

    Or just not in Australia yet?

    Hamstrung by the godawful ABC.

    Their radio is actually worse than their TV.

    A pernicious propaganda dripfeed in nicey nice caring tones.

  7. areff

    St Kev’s is aghast at its students’ misogyny, appalled at the vile chant’s exclusionary impact on females.

    The girls attending the school must be especially appalled.

    Wait. Hang on!

    St Kev’s excludes girls from enrolliug.

    a second tram load of geldings on a one-way trip to the knackery has been recorded

  9. Bruce of Newcastle

    Those terrible misogynysts will now never work. They will be blacklisted by all right thinking employers, political parties, law practices and sporting teams.

    Mainly because all right thinking employers, political parties, law practices and sporting teams are craven cowards who are terrified of fat feminazis and soy boys with man-buns.

  10. Cassie of Sydney

    This reminds me…on a much smaller scale of course and the circumstances are not the same….of the Covington Boys beat up and ensuing hysteria. From beginning to end this St Kevin’s saga is also a total media beat up……..fomented and spruiked by far left media outlets such as their ABC and their assorted mediocre enablers such as Lady Lesbos herself….Patricia Karvelas.

    As with Covington…their ABC, Karvelas and the rest of them won’t be happy until the bodies are hanging from the trees.

    No wonder the west is stuffed.

    Did the ABC ever discuss the anti-semitism at Cheltemham High as The Age reported in passing?

    The stupid bint says there’s “ continuous outrage” over this hanging offense. Who exactly is continuously outraged, she, of course , doesn’t say. Talk about a non story.

    I doubt it…doesn’t fit their narrative. And let me tell you…what happened at Cheltenham High is a lot more disturbing than a few teenage boys singing smutty and lewd songs on a tram.

  14. JC

    Cassie

    What’s really disturbing is [email protected] parents sending their kids to Chelt. High. I always thought J**wish parents valued education. How could they.

  15. Blair

    A spot of counselling should do the trick.

  16. Cassie of Sydney

    JC….We do value education….above all things. They probably weren’t sent to Jewish schools because of money…..not all Jewish parents are wealthy and most Jewish schools are expensive. As far as I am concerned those kids would have been better off at the local Catholic or Christian school.

  17. billie

    Far Kurnell, really, schoolboys being schoolboys?

    ffs, talk about losing perspective .. it’s not particularly tasteful but so what?

    someone was offended

    someone should get over it

  19. billie

    and another thing ..

    where’s that freedom of speech now ABC?

  20. MatrixTransform

    I heard from a source close to school admin that the incident at Cheltenham did NOT involve TWO students.
    Just one was a student.

    And some school principals are not happy with the media beat up.

  21. Dianeh

    Are we sure the bawdy songs were even misogynistic and not just sexist.

    I find it hard to believe that the sings were about hating women. I think it is probably the exact opposite.

  22. Judge Dredd

    No one can argue that it wasn’t a very stupid thing to do by those boys. In a world where everyone has a camera and the media are just waiting to tear down the next white male Christian, they should have been aware that this would hit the fan hard.

    Like all things though this will blow over in a week when the media move onto the next shiny new object, and certainly the SJWs will lose steam shortly. The best thing the school can do is wait it out and not respond as they will be very tempted to completely overreact, a la the Convington boys debacle.

  23. notafan

    At least it wasn’t Xavier students.

    Catholic school boys are the worst.

    Believe me.

  24. areff

    At least it wasn’t Xavier students.

    Your smarter Xavs obtain Trinity ties and don them before misbehaving in public. At least they used to.

  25. B.A.Lert

    Never a bad word said about black rappers in America and what these upstanding fellows want to do with and to bitchezz in general.

  26. I keep tellin’ ya’s; having men and women work side by side and having large numbers of women in positions of power and authority is a (comparatively) recent phenom in human history.
    We don’t know how this experiment will turn out for society and male female relations.
    We just don’t. We’re hoping, but we don’t know. Thus far lots of negatives along with the positives.

  27. Cassie of Sydney

    “We don’t know how this experiment will turn out for society and male female relations.
    We just don’t. We’re hoping, but we don’t know. Thus far lots of negatives along with the positives.”

    Well Baa Humbug…it won’t work out…it will drive men towards a certain ideology and quite frankly…I won’t blame them.

  28. Up The Workers!

    Presumably, according to the blinkered views of the professionally-offended Karvelas and the obnoxious bigots at the A.L.P.B.C., they’d have been O.K. if all they had done was to have merely acquired a set of secateurs and cut the arms, legs and head off a non-anaesthetised unborn baby.

    Good Socialist behaviour, that.

  29. Des Deskperson

    I don’t know much about this beyond the clip posted above, but that shows, prima facie, a group of beefy oafs aggressively marking out their territory on public transport by loudly chanting a piece of offensive and misogynist – ‘holes in the road’ – doggerel which is neither clever nor funny, although that’s beside the point.

    I don’t like it.

  30. Tel

    There was a misogynist band called “Hole” slightly less talented than the schoolboys singing.

    No one felt the need to pretend to get outraged about it, but that was the 90’s and political correctness wasn’t quite so fashionable.

  31. mh

    The ABC now playing the role of Nurse Ratched.

    Two things need to happen:

    1. A bloke gives Patricia the seeing to that she desperately needs
    2. The ABC be shut down immediately

  32. Mother Lode

    Adolescents going through or only recently having gone through puberty. It is a new world and they are learning how to bring new urges into harmony with the rest of themselves.

    Singing the ribald song is a thrill precisely because they know they are not supposed to. The boy singing was probably basking in the adulation for his daring from his mates. There are a who lot of motivations here, but only one useful to the left.

    They are schoolkids. Very little of what they do is about participating in the great pan-human narrative.

    And for eons humans have used speech as a way of managing impulses – venting frustrations, cursing an enemy against whom you have no physical power, poetry, tribal rituals, football chants. How many people have sought to manage fear by reciting prayers or making promises to God – not as a religious experience but because it simply makes them actually feel better.

    The connection between words and impulses is not the shallow exercise this woman is pretending it is.

    But her ilk see these words can only connect to a specific set of impulses, that inform an attitude and which attitude will dictate anti-social behaviour. No depth at all. Scarcely makes it as shallow.

    Besides, I think the reporter will remember (if she were honest) that schoolgirls also boys and men for their being male. Some of them never grow out of it – was it Clem Ford who wrote about Abbott’s dick falling off in the shower?

  33. Candy

    It is oafish behaviour on public transport, in their school uniforms too, so representing their school. Not acceptable. Same if it were girls. Rules of courtesy and proper behaviour in public apply.

  34. Mother Lode

    Rules of courtesy and proper behaviour in public apply.

    That is not j’ismists point. She is talking about the whole school. She is saying they hate women as a rule.

    And she is denouncing the whole Church, if we are being honest.

  35. JC

    It’s just a bunch of young boys horsing around, that’s all. Give them a break.

    The senior school boys were en route to a weekend sports carnival

    They should have been quoting the Bible instead of singing bawdy rugby songs.

    Like Izzy. The ABC would approve of that.

  37. That chant wasn’t in the university song book in the 60s. Has there been a revised edition?

  40. Candy

    JC it won’t do them any good in today’s world, will it. Probably some of them got talked into it but thought it was a dumb thing to do, cameras and all, find themselves on the media, parents annoyed.

  41. Dave in Marybrook

    I’ve got a good routine, listening to RN in the mornings.
    Whenever someone presents an opinion, their own or reporting someone else’s, I say out loud “opinion”.
    It’s constant. “Outrage” is opinion. “Concern” is opinion. The word “like” is opinion, and a sure sign that the presenter or interviewee is talking out of their @rse. Cliches like a “stunning” election result, a “decimated” landscape, or “nature’s fury” in a weather event are knee-jerk zombie prose, but opinion nonehtheless. Any adjective, such asthe old horse “the prime minister has desperately sought…” is an opinion.
    And, this story’s particulars aside, I’m well aware that Patsy Karvelas is one who will constantly harp on about how the ABC only deals in facts, and is trusted, and has Peter Greste on speed-dial to pop up and pontificate on how noble a calling journalism is.

    Feminist author to have book pulped over her claims UK executed dozens of gay men

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2019/10/22/oxford-educated-feminist-author-have-book-pulped-claimed-uk/

    …In an awkward moment on the Free Thinking programme, presenter Matthew Sweet, himself an author, explained how ‘death recorded’ meant Silver was actually spared the gallows.

    “‘Death recorded’ was a category that was created in 1823 that allowed judges to abstain from pronouncing a sentence of death on any capital convict whom they considered to be a fit subject for pardon.

    “I don’t think any of the executions you’ve identified here actually happened,” he said.

  43. JC

    Candy

    They’re boys. Boys mess around and do shit like that. Sure, they need a stern talking to, but that’s about all. Aren’t there any important stories for the stupid ABC bint to be reporting on? How about this?

    I went to a Good Guys store the other week and wanted to look at some electronics, but the table was totally empty. The sales dude told me they were robbed/mobbed by a bunch of sud men who walked in an took everything of value that was on display.

    That’s what that useless Greek bint should be reporting on. How about deporting her for a start.

  45. Roger

    Has the ABC ever broadcast material that could be construed as inciting violence?

  46. Robbo

    You want overreaction then here we have it. Back in my days as a teenage student this sort of stuff would have been dealt with swiftly by the school and the use of a strap coupled with detention for a week or so. Handwringing perpetually outraged adults were not required because society in those days was too smart to be sucked in by the idiot bedwetters who dominate the headlines these days.

  47. areff

    Agreed, Des. The boys certainly weren’t conducting themselves as young gentlemen, and that is what they deserve to be punished for.

    But to to classify garden-variety adolescent behaviour as further ‘evidence’ of all men’s alleged war on all women is woke-stupid on stilts. Boys misbehave on public transport and the ABC turns to a domestic violence expert for counsel and interpretation!

    Six of the best apiece is all this episode deserves.

  48. FelixKruell

    There’s continued outrage over the offensive behaviour of students from Melbourne’s prestigious St Kevin’s College.

    The gall to report the continued outrage – by the media – as somehow being real continued outrage.

    The scandal has deepened today, with ten students being suspended, while the school’s headmaster has apologised and launched an investigation.

    Since when is a proportionate response by a school to misbehaviour by students in public a sign that the ‘scandal’ is ‘deepening’?

  49. The modern education system sees masculinity as a pathology.

    Homeschool. It’s the only way out of this nonsense.

    I saw two 4’5″ (very) fat female coppers yesterday, patrolling together.

    If they wanted to arrest me and I didn’t want a bar of it, they’d have to shoot me dead.

    They’re useless, in make work jobs.

  50. areff

    The Hellenic nanny’s ABC proudly broadcast the clip below. ‘Sucking d*** in Copenhagen’, ‘Motherf***er’ and more besides. The St Kev’s kids’ chant is mild stuff by comparison.

  53. Roger

    Feminist author to have book pulped over her claims UK executed dozens of gay men

    Not just any feminist author but Naomi Wolf.

    What’s more, the “research” which led her to make her demonstrably false claim was part of her PhD thesis undertaken at Oxford.

    She continues to be invited to literature festivals, naturally.

  54. Des Deskperson

    “There was a misogynist band called “Hole” slightly less talented than the schoolboys singing.”

    An all or mostly female group, led by Courtney Love. I don’t recall their oeuvre as being misogynistic, nor do I recall them getting in people’s faces on public transport

    “She is talking about the whole school. She is saying they hate women as a rule.”

    I’m not sure about that. She mentions that the headmaster has pointed to the programs at the school which are designed to teach and shape boys’ behaviour and attitudes about respectful relationships. The ‘expert’ suggested that it was only a minority of boys at the school.

    JC’s comment about the ABC’s biased coverage of youth crime is a fair point, particularly when it’s website referred yesterday to alleged gang members caught in a police sweep in Victoria as ‘young people’ – like they were some sort of juvenile performance troupe. Still, if the St Kevins’ boys had been a similar sized posse of Sudanese youths of the same age and stature, aggressively chanting Rap crap on public transport, at least some cats would be calling for their immediate incarceration.

    The modern education system sees masculinity as a pathology.

    Then, as was suggested a couple of days ago, let us take the language offensive.

    First, use “manliness” rather than masculinity, and “feminity” rather than “feminism”.

    Second, start referring to the actions of Antifa as involving either or both of “toxic feminism” or “toxic masculinity”. Accuse them of being what they spray around so freely.

  56. C.L.

    Has the ABC ever broadcast material that could be construed as inciting violence?

    It’s been broadcasting Rage for decades. Ever watched the opening disclaimer? Nudity, drugs, violence, language and more.

  57. areff

    Those blazered virgins don’t hate women. They’re in awe of anything warm and female. They were heading to the annual GPS sports event, where they would have chanted encouragement with their mates beside the track and, when not so engaged, attempted to chat up and rub against the little tarts and vixens from Gen, Ruyton, MLC, Lowther etc., who were there to be chatted up and rubbed against.

    Unless things have changed in the past 45 years.

  58. Feminism is a toxic, communicable, cancerous and mind numbing religion.

    All it is, is weaponised Marxism.

    It is about taking from the producers.

    Handing over your boys to institutions with little to no male role models (let alone a masculine presence at all) and staffed with mentally ill, low IQ, poorly “educated” indoctrinated women that no real man ever wants to marry, is a recipe for the engenderment of yet more mental illness, false diagnoses and suffering.

    Hence the “epidemic” if “autism” and “ADD”.

    They are acting as naturally as the boys always have in response. If it is boorish there are people in place to take them to task – parents, teachers end such.

    I am not sure I would really call doing something that a screeching Feminazi harridan can latch onto and misrepresent ‘enabling’. She would be scouring the papers looking for a whetstone on which to grind her axe.

    It’s merely an outbreak of femenazi woke-itis ie. an inflammation of woke-ness.

    Major symptom: use of “misogynist” as a descriptor, rather than the more accurate but lower class “bawdy” or correct English “ribald.”
    Secondary symptom: lack of any serious understanding of the English language.

    Preferred treatment: excision OF the body commentary
    Minimalist treatment: excision FROM the body commentary

    When I went to school ,a boys only one ,we wore uniform, it was drummed into us that one didnt disgrace the uniform in any way, severe punishment was incurred for breaches of gentlemanly behaviour ,even out of uniform standards were expected to be obeyed . I suppose the system turned out polite mannerly individuals ,not a bad thing in youth . The girls schools had the same ideas ,turning out ladylike young women ,again a good thing . Discipline was expected from people pity its gone isnt it ?

    The students of the deaf school near where I used to work engage in oafish behaviour on public transport. The pranks were usually physical since there’s no point making farting noises or singing raucous songs if your mates can’t hear you.

    No one gave a crap about it, then again it was Australia in the late 1990’s, old Australia.

    That’s complete bullshit though and something you don’t want in society.

    What if parents started following the teachers around and haranguing them about what I see as breaches of propriety?

    It is fucking ridiculous and really cringe worthy that society ever put up with this errant nonsense.

    Now the socialist national broadcaster is latching onto it because it has nothing better to do after protecting a child abuser and slandering the Navy.

    That’s fair enough and the boys should get detention and/or demerits and maybe six of the best; for making the school look bad on public transport. But as with everything, the ABC-TASS media make it into an issue of cultural Marxism. It is “toxic masculinity” that leads to oppression of women and the all-encompassing “violence against women”. Teenage schoolboys will no longer be permitted to be teenage schoolboys. They must be emasculated by the State.

    Which of course is always, always completely counterproductive. Always. The clowns that impose this tedious shit were the betas when they first went to school, and of course, they never in fact left school did they?
