Guest Post: For once I am a bit cross with SB

For once I am a bit cross with SB in her article about the forced marriages of young girls.  She demands “what are the feminists doing about this?”

This is not only a feminists’ debate and action – it belongs to all of us, men, women, old and young.

If action is the responsibility of one small group of people that action can then be isolated and lose its power.

I realise that in part this comment is an attack on the feminazi, but please don’t mix objectives!  

The actions reported require a collective response regardless of our demographics.  Let us all say this is not acceptable.  Let our New Zealand and Australian men voice their disgust without feeling they are siding with the feminists.  I am sure they fear for the safety of their daughters, and feel in their gut the horror that is being perpetrated on the young.  Let us harness everyone’s emotional response and present a very loud community “NO” to these actions.

It is not the responsibility of one group.  It belongs to all of us.  Men, we need you to speak up too.  This is not just the job for women.  We must all respond.  We are fighting for our children, regardless of race.

Let us all be heard.  Let us all take responsibility for that.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
