Are we enabling bullies.

25 November 2015, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia - Ken Lay: 'We make excuses for boys, and subtly encourage girls to do the same', International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women - 2015. His points are very well made, and could be valid in all circumstances of life. Have a read, and tell us what you think. His final point is very challenging.

We had a murder here a few months ago of a young woman who was initially bad mouthed in the press for her behaviour. It became clear once she was found that the male involved was a dangerous fantasist who had made up a story to cover his tracks. He had over-powered her, murdered her, attempted to dispose of her body in a horrifying way all to try to escape a conviction. He nearly was believed because he suggested the woman was a one night stand who had left his flat to walk back to her area of the city. He was believed in an earlier assault which did not result in murder.

The trouble is, it's perceived as a way to get on, in life. The corporate world, here, is full of bullies and the bullies tend to be "successful", in that they've made pots of dosh. So, youngsters aspire to be like that.

I mean... heck, look at our so-called leadership. The population, by a huge majority, have said "No" to airstrikes, in Syria. Yet, it looks like they're going to hit them, anyway. Problem is, the rest of the world will think it's us that have said to do it, as the people voting in parliament are, supposedly, representing us and doing what we tell them to do.

If only...
