Police Proudly Parade Their Anti-Male Sexism

Filed under: General — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 10:48 am Fri 12th October 2018

Check out this remarkable news item. Police white-knighting for damsels who are not in distress.

“How do you know she’s consenting?” Apart from the fact she has her tongue in your mouth and her hand down your underpants? A better question might be “How do you know she won’t withdraw her consent retrospectively tomorrow or in 30 years?”, the answer to which will always be “That can’t be known”. One might hope that this police harassment of people going about lawful activity will cause some males to consider joining the MGTOW code, but that seems very unlikely. Most young guys will continue to be ruled by their penis especially after alcohol consumption, and regardless of equal drunkenness will continue to be held exclusively responsible for women’s sexual participation.


  1. I can not believe a policeman said this, …from above linked article..

    ….( the penalty for getting consent wrong is huge,” he told the Herald.) It must be code warning to all males out there,,, “THANKS FOR THE HEADS UP MAN”..and if it is really a code warning to all males out there,,, THEN TAKE HEED.

  2. This is what a Detective Sergeant does on a Friday night?

    What’s one way to prevent sexual assaults on a boozy Friday night in the city?

    “Embarrass the kids.

    Detective Sergeant Grant Carroll has no qualms walking up to a “canoodling” couple in an alleyway around Wellington’s Courtney Place and asking blunt questions.

    “How do you know she’s consenting?” He’ll ask.

    In the construction of the article I’m wondering how this was added to by the media?

    Most of them can’t answer. “They’re too plastered.”

    But an intrusion from the police can be what it takes to break the spell for an intoxicated potential victim who doesn’t actually want to be there.

    The embarrassment is worth it to prevent a sexual assault report rolling in a couple of days later.

    With two or three adult sexual assault (ASA) reports being made after each weekend, directly related to Friday and Saturday nights in the inner city, Wellington police are working hard on prevention, and it includes looking out for “predatory behaviour”.

    In a briefing to officers ahead of their Friday night patrols, Carroll reminds them of some examples to keep an eye out for.

    “Look for guys walking with their arms around the girls, trying to separate them,” he said.

    “Keep looking for that behaviour that could lead on to more serious offending.”

    Arm placement can be important – Carroll watches out for men walking with their arm around a woman’s head or neck, with their hand on the back of the head. It can be a sign of controlling behaviour.

    “So you want to get in there and make sure that that girl wants to go with that guy . . . we do it in a friendly way.”

    He watches out for signs women are being separated from the rest of their friends.

    “Go out as a group of five, come home as a group of five,” he said.

    “Because we work in here we can see the damage a sexual assault can have on someone’s life and the ability to get on with their lives . . . the penalty for getting consent wrong is huge,” he told the Herald.

    “We’re pushing the ‘don’t guess the yes’ thing.

    “The Wellington police have done a really big push on the education side.”

    They work with universities, liquor licence holders and other groups to teach people about consent, and to put prevention measures in place.

    This is something different, a form of entrapment.

    “It’s one question I always ask the male offenders. How did you know your partner consented?”

    A student is taught a concept of consent.

    Within that, consent in established.

    He’s damned if he doesn’t answer but to answer the ‘male offender’ at that moment, is forced to pick a specific point at which she consented (which is deniable) or explain his view of the entire concept of consent within that individual encounter.

  3. There is another issue regarding policing as we know it.

    Our concept of police is born within the Criminal Justice system established in England.

    If you look at the origins of Polis in Europe this is the enforcement of policy in the early Civil Law of Europe.

    We are not seeing signs in central Wellington saying sexual activity or attempting to establish consent is illegal, and offenders will be prosecuted.

    What we are seeing is enforcement of policy. Exactly what that policy might be, is not clear. What is being policed is some form of policy around consent.

    This is a very confused article.

  4. Anything which helps people identify and support those who are potentially at risk of being a victim of sexual offending is an extremely positive initiative, and something police is keen to support as a prevention tool.”

    GLOW IN THE DARK cardboard cutouts of police in every bar with piercing red video camera eyes and directional audio recording ears.
