Government Office ‘falsified’ figures on Domestic Violence – Ombudsman finds

Government office reports fake statistics about domestic violenceThe issues of child protection and domestic violence have been hijacked by politically motivated feminist cliques, according to a coalition of men’s groups.

The claim came after an ombudsman’s report found bureaucrats guilty of “unreasonable and wrong administrative action” after failing to correct false and misleading information that promoted the idea men were overwhelmingly responsible for domestic violence.

South Australia’s Office for Women presented erroneous statistics, such as 95 per cent of domestic violence involves a male perpetrator and a female victim, the ombudsman found. Raw data show that, overall, at least one in three victims are male.

Men’s Health Australia spokesman Greg Andresen said the SA Ombudsman’s report should make the Gillard Government think twice about rolling back the shared parenting reforms introduced to family law by the Howard government — which effectively guarantee fathers some level of access to their children in the event of marital breakdown.

“The picture seems to be emerging of offices of women around the country — who advise state and federal ministers — having taken deeply feminist lines on domestic abuse and child protection,” Mr Andresen said.

“These bureaucrats have a strong feminist perspective — and that’s probably appropriate for people concerned with women’s issues.

“But the problem is that when governments roll out programs relating to children, what gets rolled out is a program for women, not one that has equal regard for men and women.

  • Robert E Kennedy says:

    Again as in other fathers4equaity comments the Australian Federal and States and Territories Governments are loaded to the hilt with feminist who blind eye their sisterhood in the Public Service and Government Funded NGO’s. Arrogantly and unlawfully substituting their own feminist template for the template of The Legislature.

    I know a bit behind this one especially. Tanya Plibersek was Federal Minister for Women’s Affairs that also has the National Domestic Violence Strategy that they themselves changed to Violence Against Women. Thus the whole budged is now used as a war chest of solely male blame in their gender war against men.

    The National President of Lone Fathers Australia Barry Williams told Federal Minister for women’s affairs Tanya Plibersek in person that the allegation was false but she said that it was the way it was going to remain. And so it did on to another EMILY’s List Minster for Families Jenny Macklin who bundled it with funding to all States and Territories.

    It was in South Australia that Greg Anderson successfully had the Ombudsman prevail upon the South Australian Public Service to make the alterations back to fact. I was not so successful in The Northern Territory firstly at the feminism Anti Discrimination Commission and its appeal in the Darwin Magistrates Court. The court could not see that false portrayals of men fitted into the Anti Discrimination Act.

    Feminism rules by its female sole gender ideology out of all Australian Governments and Public Services. To observe this as in this very example one needs only to turn to the official GOVERNMENT statistics of where these false statistics arose under feminist EMILY’s List Ministers Plibersek and Macklin. By turning to the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

    Where over four years ago ABS had 28% of violence to women is by other women shoots down the feminists claim 90% of violence to women is by men.

    More recently by Australian Bureau of Statistics it has climbed 38% of violence to women is by other women and when women attack men it is 77% in the home – domestic violence by women against men. So not an iota of truth in the Plibesek claim and the statistics she and Macklin distributed nationally.

    So it is plainly visible EMILY’s List feminists have no conscience to lie outrageously FROM THEIR GOVERNMENT OFFICES to substitutes their own ideology for the real facts of society.

    It is up to blokes to get the finger out and start clawing back our democracy. Don’t count on the male politicians to make their feminist colleagues honest because blokes and fathers on their heterosexual family matters are sold out by the male politicians. Swapping votes with feminists and selling out fathers to get the feminists support on other ‘re election’ matters.

    So blokes and fathers unless you take up the cudgels yourself you will be keeping yourself and other blokes and children as second class citizens.

    Make feminism IN OFFICE and tampering with Government and The Public Service an election issue AND NEVER VOTE FOR AN EMILY’S LIST CANTIDATE. Take a geek at the list below how many are in parliament anti male and what it means if you still do nothing about it at the next elections Federal or State or Territory.

  • Ian Mack says:

    The truth that is not allowed to be published is it is women who are the most violent of partners in any relationship.

    If you talk to the average man in the street; it is the women who control the money in the home, it is the women who demand the man punish the child because she does not hurt the child enough when she hits them, it is the women who deside what the family is going to do for the night, weekend or holidays.

    It is the women who often claim, when they hit you because they did not like something, they were only joking and it did not hurt because they are a woman or you are a man. This is supported by judges who claim the attacks of women are defensive rather than the offensive attack they so often are hence the scratches are on the face and neck.

    Woman cause more psychological damage to every member of society “because they are having a: “that time of the month” or “hormonal day””.
    Who has not heard that excuse for a woman’s bad violent behaviour?

    Bring on the PA laws of Brazil and see how female violence diminishes.


  • Paw says:

    NO, I don’t believe it. No, why would the govt make up such lies.

    Wow, talk about state the obvious. We all know that the govt, it’s agencies and NGOs that have anything to do with human services, are full of lies and deceipt.

    They have other agencies to carry out studies and surveys, which come up with a clear picture of what we know as the truth, but for some reason the rest of the govt and its agencies, totally ignore these findings and simply make up their own.
    All in the name of feminist projected equality, which means all things are equal for women, but for men it’s the scraps from the table.

    I mean, I can understand these nasty banshees thinking that way, but I lose track of their alledged logic, when they insist on using innocent children as their preferred weapon of choice.
    To me that is a sub-human and most offensive practice indeed!
