ICON of wrong and Meghan Markle to harried justice, Louise Milligan, is excited – nay, breathless: “Breaking: Open letter by 23 barristers, almost all silks, including Justin Gleeson, Kate Eastman & Gail Furness back consent reforms by Mark Speakman.” Wow. Almost all silks! Twenty-one of the 23, for the record. But before excitement carries us away to another 7-nil loss in the High Court, we should take a look at some figures.

More frayed satin than silk

There are currently 2464 barristers in NSW and 395 Queen’s Counsel. In other words, 99 percent of barristers didn’t want a bar of this letter, nor did 95 percent of silks. The list includes, as noted, culture warriors Gleeson and Furness. In March, Labor lawyer and ABC favourite Gleeson called for the onus of proof to be reversed so as to allow the Solicitor-General to judge Christian Porter – “within 48 hours.” And at Julia Gillard’s Royal Commission Into Getting George Pell, show-boater Furness falsely derided the Cardinal’s testimony as “implausible” on four occasions – contrary to procedure which requires such claims to be proven with facts. Another signatory – believe it or not – is officially censured ICAC false accuser Geoffrey Watson. He also called for the presumption of innocence to be disregarded in the Porter case. So much for the B-Team.

The NSW Bar Association has condemned these ‘reforms’ as “ill-considered.”

 
Turning now to the proposed revolution in question, Attorney-General Mark Speakman intends to enact several recommendations made last year by the state’s Law Reform Commission. Central to this suite is the absurd doctrine that any and all sexual activity (between everyone: married, steady or only vaguely acquainted) must only proceed with “positive consent.” It will also criminalise sex that is later claimed to have occurred following “verbal aggression, begging and nagging, physical persistence, social pressuring, and emotional manipulation.” By wilful design, any male could be accused of rape for any perceived reason or contrived purpose. Incredibly – and this is a shocking indictment of the Liberal Party – the Law Reform Commission did not recommend the affirmative consent model. Bar Association President Michael McHugh SC:

“[The proposed reforms] appear to provide that consent to one type of sexual activity is not on its own consent to another sexual activity. In other words, every single sexual touching and act in the course of a physical liaison will need positive consent in order to avoid criminalisation.”

“For example, if a person is consensually having sexual intercourse with another, they will have to obtain affirmative consent prior to placing a hand on the breast or buttock of the other person.”

 
Mark the Love Machine

Zealot Speakman boasts his new laws will “educate the community” and “change social behaviour.” That is the real agenda here. More on that below. Asked by Ben Fordham how New Consent will be given during the manifold acts and arcs of lovemaking, the Attorney-General – People’s Chaperone and Barry White gone wrong – suggested “gestures, facial expressions and hand movements.” This means a woman could go to the cops because a man caressed her bottom without a gesticulated A-OK. Speakman – apparently emboldened by the weird campaigning of the Daily Telegraph – says the onus of proof will still be on the accuser; by then, however, an incredulous victim – the man – will be sitting in a courtroom and paying a lawyer.

In a creepy and totally bizarre Q&A published at the weekend, Speakman claimed he is making it “easier for young men to have sex.” He trivialised the risk and the life-smashing crime of perjury: “under-reporting” is a “far greater problem.” This familiar #MeToo complaint is both fake and self-evidently ridiculous. “Most sexual assaults don’t get reported to the police and of [those that are], only three per cent will end up in conviction,” he writes. If begging the question was as actionable as begging for nooky soon will be, Speakman would be ensconced in Long Bay.

The “under-reporting” alibi is so circular and deceitful that it constitutes a lie. Of course he cannot know anything about what hasn’t been reported and there is no proof these phantom events were “assaults.” His inference that twelve good citizens and true acquitted 97 percent of rape defendants mistakenly is an utter disgrace. What the Attorney-General and his fringe backers actually want is a punitive decimation of men to square an imaginary ledger.

    hope Billy boy is not traumatized by these developments.

  2. Rosie says:

    There must be barely a TV show or movie that doesn’t ‘glorify rape’ if this is the standard to be applied.

    Nagging for sex as a crime.

    Risible.

  3. Dot says:

    This is the best and most important article ever posted here.

  4. Dot says:

    Oh and good luck with that fertility rate.

  5. TBH says:

    This is madness. I hope an MP or a member of their family is the first to be brought up on charges, so they can feel the full force of the process. It may focus the mind a little.

  6. TBH says:

    Also, if this becomes law in the State of WA I will be telling my son to be extremely careful (even more so than he is now) about who he interacts with from the opposite sex. If I were that age under these sorts of laws I would be getting the other party to sign a consent form 😉

  7. Biota says:

    If I were that age under these sorts of laws I would be getting the other party to sign a consent form

    That would be a very long and detailed consent given the many permutations and combinations involved in a sex session. Best just get them to sign on to the Kama Sutra, that should cover all contingencies. Maybe a pre-nup agreement for married couples.

  8. Spurgeon Monkfish III says:

    “For example, if a person is consensually having sexual intercourse with another, they will have to obtain affirmative consent prior to placing a hand on the breast or buttock of the other person.”

    WTF? So the todger may be “lodged”, so to speak (man) but you then need consent to cop a feel while this is occurring?

    These people are insane.

    How many films have you seen where two meet and after sometime race off to a place whilst hardly taking hands of each other , hurriedly take clothes off each other and then…? . I am describing a scene in Sanditon , the series based on Jane Austen’s last novel .
    Here we are and the lady changes her mind what then?

  10. Spurgeon Monkfish III says:

    Oh – and so much for “keeping the state out of peoples’ bedrooms”, you creepy dysfunctional hypocritical collectvist imbeciles.

  11. Rex Anger says:

    Maybe they have all invested vast sums in the modern-day equivalent of Woody Allen’s Orb device from the 1973 film Sleeper?

    And now wish to legally enforce its adoption (and thus cash in massively) by outlawing all au naturél contact?

  12. kingsley says:

    If a man and woman ( quaint old fashioned concept/ideas that they are) have sex where no obvious “positive consent” was given and the woman for argument sake claims she was raped because she gave no positive consent, then surely the obvious defence for the man is to make the exact same counter claim? He could also just as easily say he felt cajoled and pressured into it?

  13. Ƶĩppʯ (ȊꞪꞨV) says:

    These people are insane.

    soylent green fodder

  14. Infidel Tiger says:

    Jeez, the consent forms needed for an orgy are going to be a lawyer’s picnic.

  15. dover_beach says:

    Brilliant essay. The utter stupidity and depravity on display across the West is incredible.

  16. Boambee John says:

    Wouldn’t it be simpler just to ban all sexual activity involving two or more people?

  17. min says:

    BTW they didn’t make the bedroom , the drawing room floor or some such . The owner an elderly Lady was horrified when she found out and wanted the floor pulled up .

  18. cuckoo says:

    Q: Does this apply to gays?

  19. cuckoo says:

    Reminds me of the old joke:
    Q: Why do Canadians hate orgies?
    A: All those thank-you letters!

  20. cuckoo says:

    Reminds me of a story in one of Spike Milligan’s memoirs. A Scottish soldier had been prosecuted for a “knee-trembler” with a professional lady in a doorway in Glasgow. As the judge handed down the sentence, the soldier observed “Thal’t never stop fookin’ in Glasgae”.

  21. exsteelworker says:

    So from now on a bloke will need to write up a job procedure and have a toolbox meeting before having a root.

  22. Mick Gold Coast QLD says:

    I’m conflicted¹ – does this mean the long used and occasionally effective enquiry – “I don’t suppose a root is out of the question?” – is now out of the question?

    ¹ Awesome! 😁 I have wanted to properly include that feeble, stupid word, favoured by noodle armed p00ves, in a sentence for years! 🎼 ♪ ♫ “Awesome” too.

  23. John says:

    This is unworkable. A better system would be for the government to authorise JPs to act as authorised sex witnesses, which would witness the positive consent during the whole performance. As soon as either party moans “stop”, retreat should be witnessed immediately. The consent forms should be coutersigned in quadruplicate and filed with a newly created government authority run by a battalion of directors-general and assistants each of which will be paid significantly more than the Prime Minister himself. One of the forms should be kept in a secure facility at Party headquarters in Beijing.

    Without an approved Notary Public witness, males will be required to prove their innocence.

    This should solve our unemployment crisis as nearly everybody would want to be an accredited government agent and our GDP would rise through the roof.

  24. Lee says:

    The law is too important to be left in the hands of lawyers.

  25. Cassie of Sydney says:

    “Attorney-General Mark Speakman”

    Ah yes….this is the same NSW Attorney General Mark Sleazeman who trashed Bettina Arndt last year early last year…..he sent a letter on NSW government letterhead calling for Arndt to have her Australia Day gong rescinded……and he said this on that toilet called twitter..

    “I can’t in good conscience ignore the comments of Bettina Arndt and their potential to empower attitudes that ultimately endanger innocent women and children. I have therefore joined calls for her AM to be rescinded. “

    Now please all note that Sleazeman never sent a letter on NSW government letterhead calling for Mike Carlton to have his Queens Birthday honour rescinded despite the fact that Carlton made a disgraceful comment on twitter which had the potential to endanger a woman by the name of Nicolle Flint….and a fellow Liberal to boot. So much for his conscience.

    LOL…this is a NSW Liberal. The truth is that Sleazeman is a disgrace and he and Kean are to the left of many in the NSW Labor party.

  26. Roger says:

    This lot make the police commissioner who suggested an app to record consent look eminently reasonable.

  27. Ooh Honey Honey says:

    Wait just a minute. You can put your hand on someone’s buttock while have sex??
    Gotta try that at home and soon.

  28. cuckoo says:

    I am describing a scene in Sanditon , the series based on Jane Austen’s last novel .

    If it’s a modern Austen adaptation then I assume the couple were mixed-race and same-sex.

  29. Figures says:

    He could also just as easily say he felt cajoled and pressured into it?

    Yep. And if she had touched him on his chest or cheek without his explicit permission he can say “well she raped me too”.

    Although we all know it won’t work this way. The only people who will be charged will be white, male, non-communists.

    Still, that includes the Attorney-General so let’s hope.

  30. Boambee John says:

    Figures

    Still, that includes the Attorney-General so let’s hope.

    He appears to be white, but in this era of self-identification, who can be sure.

    Re male, see above.

    Re non-communist, extremely doubtful, he shows signs of wishing to have a Cheka reporting to him.

  31. BM says:

    It looks like the people of NSW area getting new consent laws whether they like it or not.

    How very ironic!

  32. Entropy says:

    If it’s a modern Austen adaptation then I assume the couple were mixed-race and same-sex.

    Related.

  33. johanna says:

    Well, that retrospectively criminalises everyone who has ever had sex with another person. Unless you have been celibate all your life, you have certainly breached this proposed law. Most people with active sex lives will have breached it hundreds or thousands of times, depending on the individual. What would the cumulative sentences look like?

    What a brilliant piece of public policy!

  34. Entropy says:

    Clearly sexual relations would require a witness, otherwise laws like this will end up just more of those ridiculous “she said, he said” cases.
    Even a written triplicate statement of intent would be insufficient.

  35. Infidel Tiger says:

    Liberalism is really a sexual disorder at heart.

  39. Baa Humbug says:

    Feminism is the biggest enemy of women’s happiness.
    These dickheads don’t realise where they’re pushing relationships between men and women.
    Let me give them a reminder of the very near future. SEX ROBOTS.

    Once men get a hold of one (or two or five) of these things, they’ll never risk a relationship with a real woman. No risk of rape allegations, no risk of losing half or more of your wealth.
    Women will be left alone with dried up wombs and miserable lives.

    My advice to women. The sooner you abandon this progressive shit and get back in the kitchen with pedicured bare feet, the better for your sanity and happiness.

  40. Suburban Boy says:

    All those suggestions about consent forms are missing the obvious loophole.

    A signed, notarised consent form is irrelevant if the complainant says that she (it will always be a she, of course) withdrew her consent after the form was signed but before the impugned action took place.

    It will be as if the form was never signed in the first place.

  41. Old Lefty says:

    Jeremy Gans, whose speciality is the law of evidence, points out that hardly any of Gleeson and his gaggle of signatories have any expertise in criminal law.

    When Speakman was jumping on the bandwagon against the subsequently acquitted Archbishop Wilson, I wrote to suggest that if he was really concerned about historical concealment offences he should ask the police to reopen inquires into Richard Neville’s p3d3rast mates and the ABC’s protection of them. Needless to say, no reply and no action.

    As for the Gillard royal commission, I heard something very revealing from a friend of one of the victims (and yes he really was) of a Catholic teacher in Newcastle. The teacher would take him to parties on Friday nights in a private home at which there were all sorts of people from around town (i.e. by no means just from the church), including what was then the gay underground. When he tried to tell the royal commission about this and identify non-church offenders, they just gave him the brush off.

  42. Dinky says:

    Does it include my blow up dolly?

  43. chrism says:

    someone needs to accuse this burk of an illegal touch in a supermarket queue and see how he feels about the state of play thereafter

    bit like an AG we once had …

    I have a ‘friend’ who is in the medical game
    His lady loves elderly mother was well beyond her warranty period and her doctors could no longer get original parts for her failing body ..
    On weekends he’d do the cross town trip to go visit said GF and elderly mum & sit while the mother & daughter discussed bowel actions, biopsies and bladder problems until finally
    his girlfriends mother pegged out after an illness of 3 months

    He arrived on the final day as the family were gathered around the bed of the near centenarian who had just passed & he then helped with the clean up, went shopping for the family, and took the autistic 60 year old son to his hotel

    the death was too much for the bereaved daughter who then ghosted our hero …

    he received a letter from AHPRA with complaints that he had ‘interrupted a prayer gathering of the family’, ‘had reparked the mother’s car without written permission of the executors’ and had ‘spoken to the treating medical team without permission’ – all as a thankyou from his Ex –

    when he spoke to AHPRA they were somewhat apologetic but did insist on a response

    I would not have been able to resist sarcasm, had it been me

    but he had to engage a lawyer and make a formal submission

    where is the common sense in the world?

    presumably each stroke in requires a fervent yes under these new laws? is howling like a dog consent? I don’t think this chappie has addressed that specific issue and should give examples of noises, grunts, exhortations that are considered consent and those that are not

  44. Scott Osmond says:

    It’s the losers, unattractive weaklings taking revenge on everyone else because they couldn’t get any. Take that you people who have a normal sex life. Seriously you have to wonder about this kind of person. What if anything passes for brains? Are they incapable of understanding body language? Are they so socially inept that they don’t understand that a glance or a gentle touch on the hand between those with an attachment can lead to hours of fun?

  45. Boambee John says:

    Scott O

    Are they so socially inept that they don’t understand that a glance or a gentle touch on the hand between those with an attachment can lead to hours of fun?

    They are the modern Puritans, obsessed by the possibility (or is it the fear) that someone, somewhere, might be having fun. They hate the very idea of fun.

  46. David Brewer says:

    Doesn’t go nearly far enough in my view. Why not simply ban all spontaneous gestures of affection, whether sexual or not?

  47. Rob MW says:

    By wilful design, any male could be accused of rape for any perceived reason or contrived purpose. Incredibly – and this is a shocking indictment of the Liberal Party – the Law Reform Commission did not recommend the affirmative consent model. Bar Association President Michael McHugh SC:

    A hairy-eyed truly abusive understanding of the law of minimalist unintended consequences. The ‘wilful design’, written by and profited by dykes with pikes.

    What could go wrong ?

  48. Scott Osmond says:

    The best description of these people I’ve read was, “emotionally crippled, psychologically damaged examples of human wreckage.” At the time I first thought a bit harsh but the last 2 years has shown that if anything it was genteler than they deserve. I pity our descendants who will have to unpick all the damage to our civilisation that’s been caused. Is it possible to declare an entire time period as the crazy years and find all laws passed therein invalid?

  49. Nighthawk the Elder says:

    Coming soon, a sexual consent app. It will become mandatory to have QR consent codes prominently displayed in bedrooms, public dunnies, back seats of cars, pubs, rock concerts, parks, basically anywhere that people shag.

    It’s only a matter of time before the boffins access all this new information, analyse the true state of fornication in this country and treasury comes up with a model to tax it. The lack of verifiable data has been the missing link until now.

  50. Tel says:

    Legislate broadly.

    Enforce selectively.

  51. Dunnybrush says:

    My son is a private school boy of no particular privilege who went to uni this year. We are proud of him. He has already been bullied by blue haired girls demanding he apologise for being a boy. Disgusting unis allow this poison.

  52. Scott Osmond says:

    There is a particular type of person who have a problem and than assumes that everyone else has the same. Because they can’t or won’t control themselves they try and enforce controls on everyone. Projection. Tell me NSW liberals is there something you wish to tell us?

  53. Deano says:

    These laws are long overdue. We men are irredeemable horrible pigs and misogynistic bastards, and women – perfect and infallible – will not miss us one tiny bit when we withdraw (no pun intended) permanently from all relationships forever. That’s what the leaders of the feminist movement want and they represent all (100% exactly) of all women.

  54. Andre Lewis says:

    Fiddling with consent laws can only work if in the end the only recourse is written or a verbal recording of consent by both parties before any sexual encounter. Anything less, no matter the most onerous description of what constitutes ‘consent’, leaves the situation as it is now and always has been – a “he said, she said” argument.

  55. Spurgeon Monkfish III says:

    Brought to you by Beryl Gladyschlocklian’s greenfilth goat rodeo.

    Nice of them to include this in their policy platform before the last election.

    Oh wait, they didn’t.

    “My son is a private school boy of no particular privilege who went to uni this year. We are proud of him. He has already been bullied by blue haired girls demanding he apologise for being a boy. Disgusting unis allow this poison.”

    Oh that is easily fixed. I trust you have taught him how to look after himself physically, and how to attend to those who would attack him.

    This is the new age of equality and the old dutifully observed moralities are redundant. One by one, with all due self protection of his innocence, smack ’em in their skanky gobs – down behind the dunny, that sort of thing. 👦🏻

  58. The Sheriff says:

    Mark Latham should run on a platform of compulsory euthanasia for feminists. He’d win in a landslide.

    If it is properly taxed, this problem will be killed stone-dead.
