where is the extra $500 million to address the 1,193 car crash victims in australia each year?? where is the extra $500 million to address the 200 workplace deaths in australia each year?? If 56 women are murdered in Australia, what about the other 150 australian murder victims each year? Where is their extra $500 million?
56 is a minuscule number, it’s about the same as the number of people killed by lightning strikes.
It’s just unrealistic to suggest that we should relentlessly throw ridiculous resources behind creating a society where there is literally no violence against women.
And what would we even fund?? Personal alarms for every women in Australia? Put forward suggestions as to how to spend money, not just blanket statements of “WE NEED $10 MILLION PER VICTIM”.
Anyway, the $500 million is to fund a war overseas, not specifically to combat domestic terrorism. Brandis is 100% right in saying that you’re conflating unrelated issues.
Modern feminism has barely a skerrick of thoughtfulness or rationality.
