Hi, My name is Christine Edie Chehade, I blog and tweet under Edie Wyatt. I want to raise some concerns about Greg Jericho.   I graduated from Griffith University with a First Class Honours in Humanities in 1994 from the Institute of Cultural Policy Studies. My thesis “Policing Culture” took a then radical, and now…

Book Review – Them Before Us

By admin | February 10, 2021

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. She was introduced by a commentator as the daughter of lesbian parents, who was against same sex marriage. Of course, this was a provocative embellishment…

What does a lie cost?

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.

“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…

Ghosts of Xmas Past

By admin | December 15, 2020

There is an urban legend that there is a spike in suicides and depression at Christmas time. Preliminary research, (me googling for five minutes) seems to indicate that this may not be statistically true.  But welfare agencies will tell you that Christmas causes genuine distress for large sections of the population, particularly the lonely.  I…

The Working Class Riddle

By admin | November 13, 2020

This week, Joel Fitzgibbon, resigned from the shadow cabinet over what was reported to be climate change policy.  I heard his speech and I heard what he was saying, and this is not about climate policy.  Mr Fitzgibbon was saying that Labor is not what it use to be, Labor doesn’t believe what it use…

Winnowing Fan of the Woke

In a never ending race to destroy the evidence that it once had journalistic integrity, the New York Times today came out against the secular state. Vincent Geisser, a “political scientist”, informs us that Muslims are slaughtering the French, because the French have taken the concept of laïcité (state secularism) too far.  Apparently, Muslims “feel…

We need to talk about Karen.

By admin | July 24, 2020

Karen is the stigma, not of the woman, or even the white woman but the wrong voting white woman. Burdening the term “karen” with distasteful connotations, makes her not just the person nobody wants to be, but a target of legitimate harassment and violence.

White and other made up peoples.

If we can’t agree on the language we use in a debate, it becomes what my Chinese bookkeeper use to call a “chicken and duck conversation”. We are currently having a “chicken and duck conversation” about race in our society.  We think we are talking about race, but the mainstreaming of a radical form of…
