Yes, you are a slut, case dismissed

Herald Sun

An Australian woman has found out that the defence to a charge of defamation is the truth, and it took a jury just 27 minutes to find that talkshow host Steve Price didn’t defame her when he called her a slut:

SINCE when has it been acceptable to call a woman a “slut” on radio?

Former Melbourne Talk Radio host Steve Price has just been cleared of defaming Sydney woman Charmyne Palavi on Sydney station 2UE.

Palavi, known as the NRL Cougar, sought damages after Price called her a slut in 2009.

It was in the wake of an ABC TV Four Corners program, which Palavi used to describe her sexual escapades with professional League players.

Last week a jury took only 27 minutes to dismiss Palavi’s case, causing Price to crow that he had been “vindicated”.

But while Price might have won the battle, he’s lost the war with women.

For a start, why is Palavi singled as a “slut” rather than the men she had sex with?

As Palavi wrote on news.com.au, even after the show aired, players kept contacting her.

“It’s like a drug to them. They want to go where their teammates have been before them,” she said.

    And people wonder why Sonny Bill wants to go back to the NRL ?

    • Dr Wang

      Grandstream: SBW may well have been keen on her (possibly even had her – she looks like she has quite a few k’s on the clock) when he was a immature booze-swilling idiot, who liked to entertain slappers in shithouse cubicles. But now he’s all growed up and an Islamic role-model, he’s above all that…

      • Peter Wilson

        And his sponsorship dollars has soared to new heights, since his conversion to role model. If only he could be so committed to rugby he might even make the starting lineup in the ABs.

     “It’s like a drug to them. They want to go where their teammates have been before them,” she said.

    She doesn’t look like a Grand Final to me.

      Ahh, the siren like call of the herpes virus…..

      •  aah..!..the siren call of the suppressed homosexual feelings in so many contact sports teams…(smack that butt-cheek..!..)

        ..they really want to fuck each other…

        ..and that is the nearest they can get..

        ..a sperm-swill…

    I think the Herald Sun is being a bit liberal with their statements. I might be wrong, but my understanding was the defamation was that Charmyne was running a brothel service for connecting NRL players to girls via facebook.

  • Brian Smaller

    So she has had a few touchdowns scored between the posts.

  • James Stephenson

    So the verdict is that “slut” is a fair description, but there’s no defamation because NRL players clearly think it’s a positive attribute?

    • Steve P

      Fail. See WO’s first line: “…the defence to a charge of defamation is the truth…”.

      “For a start, why is Palavi singled as a “slut” rather than the men she had sex with?”

      Yes. It’s a double standard. That’s why a guy who is a virgin at 40 is regarded by all (including and especially women) as such a pathetic loser they would make a film about such a guy just so people can laugh at him.

      • Mully

        “For a start, why is Palavi singled as a “slut” rather than the men she had sex with?”

        Well, she (for example)  could have shagged 40 blokes who only shagged her (so one each)

        More to the point, a key that opens any lock is a master key
        A lock that any key can open is a pretty shitty lock…

  • Kthxbai

    Slut is a fair description of all parties involved, including the players, assuming the allegations are correct.

  • Steve P

    Charmyne Palavi: “It’s like a drug to them. They want to go where their teammates have been before them,”

    Pure projection. Women find sexually successful men attractive; but a common male fantasy is to “pop her cherry”. Those guys are after her not because they want to stir the porridge but because she’s a guaranteed easy lay.

    •  i think her cherry wd have been long popped…

      seed..to tree..to next generation fruit is likely long past..

         Ure , you really are a sick man.

  • Just Me

    What does she think the word “slut” means? The problem lies with people thinking that men and women have the same approach to sex. They dont – period! Women like Charmyne make it very hard for all other women who don’t want to be treated like porn stars and trick vaginas. When they get called on their behaviour, they don’t like it! Well bad luck. It’s probably time that women like Charmyne were judged harshly because it is up to the women to put the brakes on the behaviour because the men sure as hell aren’t going to do it.

    • Steve P

      Oh you poor, poor thing. Don’t you realise you’ve been brainwashed by the Patriarchal Conspiracy into collaborating in your own oppression?

      “The first thing to realize when talking about women slut-shaming each other is that infighting among oppressed groups is a necessary part for keeping those groups oppressed; ergo women are encouraged, through internalized sexism to distrust each other and fight for male approval.”

      • Just Me

         I’m pretty sure even you don’t know what your talking about there Steve. Charmyne is a slut by every definition of the word. Why does she have a problem with being called one? She certainly does not seem to have any problem at all with her behaviour. Could it have been the siren sound of the cash register ringing  perhaps? That certainly backfired spectacularly!

        I have no problem with my own sexuality. However, for too long we have been told that women and men are exactly the same in our approach to sex and sexuality. We have been fed a crock of shit. Women do not handle casual sex in the same way that men do. Young girls are doing things that they cannot handle and the pornification of women is so pervasive that what we have people like Charmyne who think that their behaviour should not be held up to scrutiny. Just remember what happened to Matty Johns, when it all goes wrong and one of these girls decides (years down the track) that she was hard done by. Willing participant one minute and victim the next!

      • Steve P

        I think you’re missing my irony there Just Me.

        To be clear, I agree with every word you wrote, and I cited that article to illustrate the absurdity of certain feminist notions on the subject.

  • Callum

    She seems to be the sort of girl any single guy would go after because there is a high chance of success with little effort. Not the sort you would introduce to your parents though.

    • Gazzaw

      Your mother no, but your old man might envy your luck.

      • Boss Hogg

        Probably referred to as a “Sex Kitten” by the guy currently rooting her and then a “Slut” when she roots his mate.  To the competing “Sex Kittens” she will always be a “Slut”.  Perhaps Steve Price just did not get laid……..or did and then it stopped???  Does that make sense?

        But then taking a defamation action tends to suggest that she is a “Stupid …..S***”

  • WayneO

    OMG she’s also a grandmother. Looks like a few NRL lads are “grandmother fuckers” 

    • Just Me

      Well what about Jazzy O? She was 65 years old when she was murdered and just prior was still “performing” at various venues and brothels around Melbourne.

  • crikey..!..you’ve all been grandma-lusting….

    ..(feet shuffling..?..are they..?..)

    ..looking for a hot date..?.

    ..i have one word for you….’bowls’…
