    Oh, this sexiest campaign again. Remember when Grill'd supported men's health with Movemember? Now they just demonize them. Here's a fact, women abuse children too. Why not make this the Polished Person campaign? Oh, because that would be addressing the real issue, not just pushing the SJW's agenda.

          @DaTa: You're not wrong about male victims of violence being under-represented; and Women are probably similarly likely to physically abuse Children as well.

          But let's be honest here, this is deal is about us getting free burgers from Grill'd. That's all it's every been about. There's no need to neg the deal. It still delivers 7 burgers for the price of $30. You can then claim some of that $30 back on your tax return.

          Thanks but I remember how much support I received from the system when I was abused, there were numerous groups to support females mentally and financially.
          I did however get a call for some support that would cost me money.

        I understand your viewpoint in regard to this particular campaign and the 'facts' they are presenting, sure, because I believe in real equality. But if you have something against LGBT Australians and can't see the issues they face you can piss right the hell off. What causes, exactly, do you want Grill'd to support, do you think would be the best use of their resources?

          I think you misunderstood my argument I was trying to make, I made one mention of LGBT and was not an attack but if you cant understand what I was getting at in relation to this particular agenda then "You can piss right the hell off" as you are unable to debate in a logical way an resort to attacks because all you saw was LGBT and flipped the (profanity) out.


          can piss right the hell off

          The post started off like it was going to be a mature discussion of differing view points. Then it descended in the typical childish abusive behaviour we've all come to expect.

      How is this demonizing anyone?

      It's just asking (mostly*) men to paint a fingernail and raise some awareness. Nowhere on their site do they say that only men abuse kids.

      I must applaud your trolling though, this is the first time I've seen someone whine about SJWs while simultaneously demanding gender inclusivity!

        The thing is - these kind of campaigns demonise men and target men.

        I mean, did you know that the Indigenous population of Australia account for around 30% of the prison population, but only make up 2.3% of Australia's population as a whole?

        Would you be okay with a campaign that targets Aboriginal men specifically? Is that alright? Or you can see why this would offend millions of people? But somehow it's okay because it's men as entire gender.

          Would you be okay with a campaign that targets Aboriginal men specifically? Is that alright?

          A campaign for Aboriginal men to participate in an event? Sure, no problem.

          See, for example: https://whatson.cityofsydney.nsw.gov.au/events/mens-business...

          A campaign that says "Aboriginal men suck"? Of course I would be appalled.

          I take the "polished man" campaign as an example of the former category (call for participation).

          If there is a specific quote from the polished man campaign that you feel demonizes men, I am open to changing my view.
          (Do you also have statistics on who commits violence against children? I had a quick look but ran out of time before finding anything useful)


          @abb: Those campaigns are not demonising Aboriginal men in the slightest, so I'm not sure if you misunderstood what I was getting at, or couldn't find anything to disagree with?

          The Polished man campaign requests I, as a man, paint my nail to show I would never lay hands on a child. It's in the title, dude - "Polished Man". It singles out men (the campaign, when it first came about and for it's first few years, was explicitly aimed at men. Nowadays, it's not as obvious, but the campaign title is the same).

          I'm not sure what the statistics are regarding child abuse anymore, as I just rarely ever partake in these discussions these days. But it's not as predominantly men as you'd think, abb.

          I could see two interpretations of "target", I mentioned both, because it seems I take the polished man as one category while you see it as the other.

          The Polished man campaign requests I, as a man, paint my nail to show I would never lay hands on a child.

          I don't see that backed up on their site. It only says it's to raise awareness.

          Aha! This is the part I was missing. That's news to me. I never heard of them before today. But now I understand where y'all are coming from, thanks.

        • +17 votes

          As I mentioned in my own post, the statistics they use are grossly inflated and taken out of context.

          Lets look at the evidence they use to come up with their 1 in 5 children having been sexually or physically abused by men in 90% of cases.

          They cite these 3 studies https://raisely-images.imgix.net/polishedman2016/admin/polis...

          (1) World Health Organisation 2014, Child Maltreatment Fact sheet N°150.

          (2) Australian Institute of Family Studies 2015, CFCA Resource Sheet:
          Child Abuse and Neglect Statistics.

          (3) World Health Organisation, Global Estimates of Health Consequences
          due to Violence against Children, op. cit. at note 8.

          To make a case against males without controlling for social, religious and cultural variances globally is to profoundly distort the data.
          Australian men have nothing to answer for for what men in Afghanistan or Russia or Bolivia do and it is profoundly sexist to suggest we do.

          The second study does relate to Australia and is very interesting - "Australian Institute of Family Studies 2015, CFCA Resource Sheet:
          Child Abuse and Neglect Statistics" is available here www.aifs.gov.au/cfca/publications/child-abuse-and-neglect-st...

          The data they draw on is from an Australian Institute of Health and wellness study which found that there was 5,559 substantiated cases of child sexual abuse and 8,361substantiated cases of child Physical abuse in 2015 - 2016.
          Thats 13,920 children who have been sexually or physically abused in Australia during that period.

          This is way too many and there should be serious efforts to stamp this out but it is NOWHERE near 1 in 5 Children and this report makes NO MENTION of the sex of the perpetrator.

          Now lets look at their claim of 1 in 5

          Australia has a population of 24,13 million people of which 18.8% are aged between 0 - 14 years of age. Thats 4.53 million Australians under 14 years of age. http://www.abs.gov.au/ausstats/abs@.nsf/featurearticlesbyCat...

          If one in 5 of these children have been physically or sexually abused that would mean 907,288 children have been sexually or physically abused by men in Australia.

          Its a blatant and disgusting sexist lie. It is to give the impression that there is an epidemic of men abusing children when it is simply not the case.

          @abb: Okay, my mistake. I guess I'm caught up in what the campaign first set out to do - when it first came about (a few years now, and I'm not old, either - late twenties) it encouraged men to paint their nail to show they'd never raise their hand against a child. That's what the campaigns roots were set in. I didn't realise you hadn't heard about it, my mistake.

          I guess I just didn't read it that way. Immediately after the 90% claim, they go on to say:

          the Polished Man
          movement is not about pointing
          the finger. It’s about empowering
          men to take action. It asks men
          to unite and lead by example,
          channeling their collective
          strength to protect society’s
          most vulnerable citizens and our
          future leaders.

          *… trying to break the quotes… *

          Australian men have nothing to answer for for what men in Afghanistan or Russia or Bolivia do and it is profoundly sexist to suggest we do.

          Right, but does that mean it's OK for kids to be bashed & raped just because it's overseas !?

          There's no suggestion that the "1 death every 5 minutes" (or any other statistic they quote) is relating to Australia specifically.

          In my view, they're trying to do a good thing. It seems OK by me, although as usual the most sensational numbers are cherry-picked, and it has been pointed out that previous campaigns were more accusatory than this one.

        Men are solely singled out in the very name of the campaign.

        By your logic, isn't Movember anti-women?

        November is about empowering action on issues that kill men, whilst never attacking the opposite gender. A concept modern feminists can't seem to grasp.


          Men are solely singled out in the very name of the campaign.

          Yes, just like Movember. I don't see the problem. Like if there was a women's march through the city for whatever cause, I would be fine with that too.



          The difference being, men are singled out as the victims during Movember (with no blame placed on women). Whereas this campaign squarely singles males out as the perpetrator.

          Men are singled out because men dominate crime (particularly violent crime) statistics in Australia. It's a reality, do some research:
          "More than 80 per cent of murders, robbery and unlawful entry in Australia are committed by men, and more than 90 per cent of sexual assaults."
          Stats cited are from the ABS. It is a fact worldwide, and Australia isn't excluded here, that when there's a violent crime (and almost always when it's a sexually violent crime) the perpetrator is more than likely to be a man. These campaigns and dialogues are here to start the conversation, because nobody seems to be talking about it. Your arguments, on the other hand, aim to shut down that dialogue. You'll fight vehemently against this issue pretending to care about misrepresentation of other groups (female perps for example) and wake up tomorrow morning and forget about it. These damned "feminists" that you abhor are the only ones that seem to be fighting to keep these conversations going.

          Where did I say that? The campaign is a great idea, that's poorly (properly on purpose) implemented. See my first comment, all I want is this campaign to target both men and women, ie. Polished Person.

          More than 80 per cent of murders…90 per cent of sexual assaults.

          And? That still means a lot of females are committing these crimes. Plus, I would assume a lot of female violence towards men goes unreported due to the fact our society devalues male lives.

          wake up tomorrow morning and forget about it

          Its worthwhile thinking about these things but having a mindset of equality above all else is toxic.

          Men and Women are not equal. We are not a blank slate at birth. We have different and complementary attributes. Equality is unobtainable and any country that has built their society around equality have turned into hell on earth.

When I ask "why do men dominate violence stats" and you say "well they dominate other stats too, men aren't so bad!!" we're not discussing why men are statistically violent, instead we're now talking about who deserves a voice in public discourse.

          I reject the way you're framing the issue.
          Identity politics is toxic as this campaign that implicitly associates men with violence against children and worse, requires an affirmation that "they don't agree with it".

          It's no different to "teaching men not to rape" rad fem propaganda or compulsory consent classes for uni students.

          It implies that men are latent rapists as this implies that men are latent child abusers.

          As Ive proved in another post, the 1 in 5 figure is an absolute fabrication.
          Using their own figures and generously defining a child as being under 14 it works out to 1 in 325 children who have been abused in Australia!

          That's demonization, not "raising awareness".

      Now if we were to talk about domestic violence then yeah it would be quite sexist.
