Male Victim of Serious Violence Doesn’t Get Justice
Here is a good example of New Zealand’s attitude regarding violence towards males. A man had almost every bone in the right side of his face broken, underwent numerous facial reconstruction surgeries, has titanium plates in his skull and suffers permanent damage and ongoing complicaitons. The attacker was charged with the serious offence ‘injuring with intent to injure’. Court delays ensued for various reasons and because of this the case has now been thrown out by a judge. The victim claims he was ready to go on all of the previous hearing dates that were adjourned.
Imagine the outcry from every feminist supporting organisation in the country if a similarly injured woman had her case thrown out like this!
The alleged offender in this case is lucky he didn’t commit an action such as gently touching a woman in a way she finds offensive. No way would any NZ Court dare to throw out that prosecution. Apparently, and according to the severity of likely sentencing, gently touching a woman is a more serious crime than demolishing a man’s face and resigning him to years of surgery and a lifetime of suffering and disability. It’s only a male after all so who cares? From the lack of objection from all those feminist defenders of social ethics, hardly anyone cares about male victims.
This callous attitude toward male suffering is promoted by the White Fibbin’ campaign that deliberately excludes male victims (the most frequent victims of violence) from consideration. WHITE RIBBON equals misandry. Congratulations White Fibbers, this appalling case shows your campaign is achieving its intentions.
