AUT Associate Law Professor Khylee Quince (I didn’t make that name up although she may have done) has begun a fortnightly column in the always excellent Saturday Dominion-Post.
She opened the batting last week with a piece on school kids wearing hair styles contrary to school rules and gave us this pearl of creationism.
“Freedom to wear your hair as you wish is an important human right.”
God help us all. Freedom to wear your hair as you wish is most certainly not a human right, not the least as there’s no such thing as human rights.
There are legal rights and that’s all. So-called human rights are simply a wish list for which there seems to be no end to regular new announcements.
I suspect Khylee’s real name is Sharlene. I have a daughter bowling through a law degree in Melbourne, very much contrary to my advice. I’ll send this article to her as confirmation that she will learn nothing at uni’.
