Housing Crisis caused by Feminism and the breakdown of the family unit.

D-day for the Government’s plan to fix housing, with few easy options

i.e. TAX.

Housing Crisis caused by Feminism and the breakdown of the family unit.

Separated families need two dwellings. Both dwellings need to have a bedroom for each child. That is not what the law says, its what a Family Court orders. said 46% of children come from separated families. That link went to a site called That link no longer works.

Those family’s costs are doubled. 2 mortgages, 2 sets of maintenance costs, 2 sets of council rates, 2 insurances, 2 sets of bedding, 2 sets of rubbish removal. And those costs have to be on one income each. Example if a house needs painting each 10 years, that is a cost of say $45 per week. Carpet replacement would cost $23.00 per week over 12 years.

And it is not cheap for local Government either. Each home has to have a road past it. It has to have power, internet, water, sewer, storm water, phone and more often than not gas. All those systems have to be maintained. I don’t know how much it costs to resurface a road, repaint it. Looks expensive to me.

There is an environmental cost too. More land is taken up for housing, roading. Even things like 2 mail and courier deliveries, more convenience stores.

And now it looks like we have to tax housing to pay for those costs. Those costs will be paid by the buyer, investor or renter.

Looks like our exports will be less competitive now.

    We looked at this in discussions back in the Clark Era. In many ways were picking up where we were back in 2002.

    You have the repartnering situation of course which doesn’t completely negate the argument while you’re just swapping the adults around there will always be the situations described above.

    There are other factors to consider and this is worse now than it was before and that’s older couples who would otherwise be living in the same house and grandparents raising grandchildren which also affect the housing supply.

    You’ve detailed the costs of two houses, but you haven’t explained how feminism has caused the housing crisis. To quote P. Hanson, “please explain”.

    It’s probably more obvious for separated people to see the law of the individual working against the principle of family.
    For example a woman choosing a DPB existence because of inconsistency of income may life with children while the father repartners.
    You would have a house and a half situation.
    It’s the same with men living on the road for transient work, they reflect in the homeless.
    It takes some analysis to see the consequences in the market.

    The DPB allows for a single income to afford a house without even the need to offer another individual a room to rent, the cost to the taxpayer must have grown substantially.

    A man who busts his arse for his family is no longer a hero just a loser who couldn’t earn enough.
