Family violence isn't gendered

Feminist theory truly has infiltrated every layer of government; can you even begin to imagine how much more out of control this would get under Labor?

On 14 October, the Morrison government announced that it’s strengthening the Partner visa program to “further protect vulnerable migrants from people who commit violent crimes against women and children.”

Why bother using such inclusive language in some parts, such as this:

“It doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from, whether you are here on a visa or have Australian citizenship – no one should be trapped in a violent relationship.”

But then, launch smack bang into the middle of feminist ideology, which attempts to assert that men are evil perpetrators and women are innocent victims?

If it doesn’t matter who are, where you’re from, or which visa type you have, why does it matter what gender you are?

Violence crimes don’t only happen to women and children, do they? Even a swift Google search would surely prove that.

Why bother seeking inclusivity in every other area with careful wording except for the feminist owned territory of domestic violence?

It is illogical.

The lives of women and children are valuable.

The lives of men are also valuable.

All human lives are valuable.

Is it really so hard to leave gender bias at the door and use the word “people” rather than reverting to the feminist script of “women and children”?

It’s fewer characters – and added bonus, the word “people” is less misandrist.
