Australia to spend millions more on anti-porn efforts

Filed under: Uncategorized — Pete @ 3:43 pm

For those of us who follow Men’s Rights news around the world, it is clear that the other side of the world is much worse with regards to men’s rights than the US. We’re pretty bad, but they have it REAL bad.

New Zealand is the worst, with Australia and the UK coming in at a dead heat.

Well, looks like Australia is edging ahead in the race to hate men as much as possible.

Australia is trying its level best to ban porn again with a new $189 million initiative, after spending $93 million on ineffective anti-pornography Internet filtering last year. In related news, Parliament is evaluating a legislative proposal that would impose jail sentences for possession of porn movies.

Sometimes I think I’m a bit jaundiced in my looking at news and media through the prism of men’s rights, but I think I’m right. And it makes me sad.

Cut it however you like, but men are the main consumers of porn. Liberated lesbian feminists aside, men the world over have to take matters into their own hands because of the way we are. We have higher sex drives, and we need porn to be stimulated, since we can’t just jack off thinking about money and that purse we saw in the shop window like the manipulative sex.

Approximately $89 million will be used to establish Australia’s National Filter Scheme, which will impose burdensome filtering requirements on ISPs and provide Australian citizens with free* access to PC-based Internet filtering software.

Approximately $22 million will be spent on a broad “public awareness and education campaign” to inform parents of Internet safety issues, and another $11.7 million will be used to establish community outreach programs that will push “the Internet safety message” into thousands of schools. Additionally, the government plans to establish a consultative working group to find a “workable solution” to combat “the use of social networking web sites by predators to contact and groom children via the internet.”

Male sexuality is lumped in with terrorism and pedophilia. Excellent. One more step forward for the Feminist Nation. Mein Kampf by Germaine Greer anyone?

There is also a related proposal that would impose jail sentences for possessing five or more pornographic movies.

I’m as good as locked up for life with that “proposal”.

Criminalizing male sexuality is the in-thing. Men are the hate group du jour.

  1. Watch for rape to skyrocket if this passes. LOL.

    Seems women would be grateful for porn, after all, aren’t they tired of being hit on?

  2. Porn is direct competition of men’s wallets for women.

    Best way for Ameriwhores to keep the flow of suckers coming is to pass things like IMBRA or in this case down under eliminate porn.

  3. It was feminists wish to legalize porn.

  4. ff, I think that there have been a lot of changes in the feminist movement. Just like a Republican of 50 years ago wouldn’t spit on a Republican of today, a feminist of 50 years ago believe in different things than a feminist of today.

    Today, its all about how porn is degrading (to women), causes men to be evil (to women), increases abuse (to women) and all that good stuff. Notice how casually they drop the name of child porn, as if child pornography is just another manifestation of the porn industry, just another fetish indulged in by many men.

    This is a big deal because this is the first big effort to legislate morality under the new vanguard, the view that says, “Women must be protected at ALL COSTS.” This has not been done before, and I bet Western governments are itching to try it out for themselves.

    Say hi to the new oppressors, the same as the old oppressors.

  6. G’day Pete

    Love your site man but after seeing what goes on in the US i’d much rather be here! Aussie women do not have the power of US women in the courts. Most married with family US men who live here that i’ve met don’t want to go back.
    Ditto for UK guys.

    I agree we have many stupid laws over here but a divorcing man is better off here than in the US.

    Hey Spec, love ya site too man, brothels are legal here!

    Keep up the great work both of youse!

  7. The ironic thing is, I believe brothels are legal in Australia. Go Figure!

    It’s a state by state issue whether they are legal or not and each state has different rules on what is legal.

    There are only two states, well the Territories to be exact, where it is legal to sell X rated videos. One of them is the nation’s capital where most of the politicians live. The same place where escorts were legal when they were illegal everywhere else and still are in some states, where a marijuana possession is not illegal, hell I think they are even allowed to have fireworks there too.

    Hypocrites the lot of them.

    Aussie women do not have the power of US women in the courts.
    Except if there are kids involved. They don’t have vaginamony in Australia, with child support they don’t need it. I know a few guys who were left with a little cash and maybe a car that they can sleep in, she got the house and everything else. Plus they are still responsible for the mortgage. Child support is something like 27% of gross income for the first child, 30% for 2 children. Taxes will take out about 30-40% out of his gross. Then maybe another 10% depending on how you work out your superannuation. After all that he is responsible for the medical and dental bills. Then suddenly the kids need to go private schools at his expense.
