This is the eulogy I gave at my sister Andrea’s funeral. ___________________________________________________________________ When someone is dying in your life, your mind plays old recordings of things they have said to you, stories they repeated and sayings they relied on in their day to day dialogue.  The human brain is a funny thing, in that it…

A couple of blokes, one from the Guardian, the other an ABC contributor talk about how the erasure of women is a good thing and that gender critical feminists are actually bigots and should STFU A Guardian journalist and a PHD student school a lesbian and woman of colour about women’s rights and how they…

Race, Sex & Rugby.

By admin | April 9, 2021

I recently watched two documentaries back-to-back about two rugby greats, Dan Carter and the late Jonah Lomu.  Watching the documentaries left me sad, annoyed and a little bit angry. The final scenes of Lomu on the beach with his boys, were a tragic reminder of what was lost to his family and community in his…

Feminist Gender Wars

By admin | March 20, 2021

If this week has taught us anything it is that the confusion of gender and sex has had fundamental implications on the way we can address issues around women’s safety.  Women are being murdered, raped and sexually harassed, and mainstream feminism uses the opportunity to grab more power for itself and its intersectional allies. Conservatives…

Them Before Us: Why We Need a Global Children’s Rights MovementKaty Faust & Stacy Manning I first saw to Katy Faust on Australian television during our same sex marriage debate.

What does a lie cost?

By admin | February 5, 2021

I recently heard that Contrapoints (Natalie Wynn), a transgender youtuber, has been schooling JK Rowling on womanhood. I tried to watch it, but this type of saccharine play-acting, packaged as political debate, is more than I can cope with.  Feminists I usually watch, rarely deliver opinion from a candle lit bath. She is more frequently…

Returning to Feminism

By admin | January 6, 2021

I am on a journey back to a form of feminism that I am not sure exists. Many women like myself, stopped identifying as a feminist when our suburban lives ceased bearing any semblance to the goals spouted by the angry weirdos at the forefront of western feminism. While I was busy running a grown…

Not Affected: finding a new doctrine for tragedy.

By admin | December 27, 2020

“Never be afraid when God brings back your past” Oswald Chambers said.   When God began bringing back my past recently, I was more confused than afraid.  But I was afraid.  What confused me is that God was bringing back such happy memories.  A series of dreams and flashbacks were reminding me of happy islands in…
