Congratulations to Immigration Minister Michael Wood for refusing to ban British anti-trans activist Posie Parker speaking in New Zealand. The utterly fraudulent argument proffered by diverse sexually confused groups for the ban was that Parker’s presence would cause riots. And the reason they would occur is these same groups say they plan to cause them.
Ironically, on the day Parker is due to arrive news came that the World Athletics organisation has banned trans athletes from competing, other that is, than in their actual gender category and not their imagined one.
The major issue here is not the ridiculous trans one, that is whether hulking male brutes declaring themselves to be women automatically makes them women. Rather it’s about freedom of speech.
If you don’t like what Parker says then don’t listen to it, not try to disrupt it.
The usual suspects condemned the visit. Current Wellington mayor Tory Whanau announced she would attend to protest. I say current as the capital has had a series of disastrous mayors since Kerry Prendergast and has booted them out at the first opportunity as doubtless it will do with Whanau.
A final thought. Critics of trans peoples’ fantasies are labelled trans-phobic, typical of their ignorance re language. Phobic means fear. The critics are not fearful in the least of these sexually confused folk, rather, specially in the case of male trans for example, women don’t want them in their toilets or with their physical advantages, competing with them in sport. Otherwise it’s entirely their business if they believe they’re born in the wrong body and are really a zebra, Napoleon or the opposite sex.
Terrorists , racists , bigots and Posie Parker all thrive on one thing , and essentially become meaningless without it : publicity ! No doubt the NZ mainstream media will follow Parker slavishly , and gift her the thing she craves most ; attention .
Nailed it again Sir Bob. Sadly I think Posie’s speech won’t happen and it will be a similar result to when Lauren Southern and Stefan Molyneux tried to speak on Auckland and the council canned it due the threats of violence from the supposedly peaceful left-wing brigade.
This is what is happening in NZ,the tyranny of the minority. As long as these groups get their own way things are reasonably quiet.When they don’t, out comes the hate for any view point bar their own, threats, and erroneous assumptions. The correct decision was made.
Why do so many people just accept this silliness? Thank god the World Athletics Federation still has the balls to say no.
By trying to shut her down, they are saying “we don’t have a good counter argument “
Is more of this cancel/pc culture nonsense… Just like with the Maorification of the country, if you have any other view then you are racist. If you eat meat then you are a horrible person that promotes animal atrocities (according to very aggressive vegans). Once upon a time upholding traditional values was honorable, today if you still do you are a trans-phobic rainbow hater and deserve to die (according to very aggressive unicorns). If you use a petrol car surely you are a climate terrorist (according to very aggressive greens) I could go on… and on… and on… When having a different view became a crime?
True leadership in any feild is about maturity & stability. Can someone tell the Mayor of Wellington while she’s still with us.
I find this desire to shut down debate both infantile & serious simultaneously. Infantile because I don’t need the woke wowsers to tell me how to think, and listening to someone is never the same as agreeing with them. Serious because of the move to a society where the thought police decide who gets a say.
I don’t know who first said it, but enforced silence never solved anything, and i’m tired of people who believe the last thing they heard (as they never read) being treated with vastly more respect than is warranted
