An exciting new option for last place on the ballot. Philip Pocock

By johnboy - 23 September 2012 114

Rejoice Molonglo voters struggling to decide who to put last on the come October 20. The SMH has a piece on Philip Pocock who wants to outlaw homosexuality and (more alarmingly for the rest of the population) sex outside of marriage.

Best of all he has a ranty bedroom YouTube vid from 2009 to outline his thoughts at tedious length (Thankyou A. Hadley for pointing that out).


UPDATE 23/09/12 13:53: And of course Phil is on Twitter, and feeling hard done by at the hands of all the deviants:

What’s Your opinion?

This guy has a poster put up illegally on gov property at red hill shops. I will be very interested in how many primary votes he gets. I hope it is sub 100

Is he for real?

At least I know what his ugly arse looks like now. I certainly plan to let him know what I think of his proposed policies should I ever be unfortunate enough to see him in person. I know he’s going to get Darkdfalz’s vote though, which depresses me. Unless of course they are one and the same.

That’s several minutes that I won’t ever get back. I don’t think it’s an “option” as to whether to put him last. Thanks for the heads up … and Mr Evil – is it possible that he protesteth too much?

In the tightly run race to see who will be last on the ballot paper we have a winner.

The Crimes with an update, including an assurance from Pocock that he doesn’t quite condone ‘poofter bashing’

Mr Evil said :

I wonder if he shags his patients?

Of course, it’d only be the female hetrosexual ones if he did!

Over Skype?

It may be worth a member of the public reporting him to the Psychology Board of Australia. His views are certainly pretty out-there.

Any minute now, Phil will whip out the piece of paper which certifies that he is a genius. I’ve seen it. He’s making the Libs look totally bolshy.

What a horrible little man. Looks like a rather forgettable Doctor Who alien with special powers of Tedium. What he is saying is obnoxious, but I fell asleep before the end of the video.

I’ve never met a psychology graduate who wasn’t, in some ways, “damaged goods” before deciding to embark on their career.

My prejudices have just been reinforced.

For someone so obviously mentally defective, it’s scary to see this guy is apparently a psychologist. That said I would hope most people would have the good sense not to buy the services of a shrink who does sessions over Skype and accept payment via Paypal.

His views on his own website are ridiculous, including the ridiculous assertion that:

“[Sex] is not something that should just be left to individuals, in the privacy of their bedroom… governments do have a role in managing sexuality if they are to maintain good order and stability.”

Some choice quotes from the video:

“The notion that a woman has the right to refuse to have sex with her husband on a whim is really a development of feminism in the 21st century…”

“Sure he can assault her, but rape is the forcible taking possession of a woman… without the rational consent that underlines marriage.”

Philip Pocock, if you read this, this is what I have to say to you:

Your views are an abomination to half a century of legal development, and an even longer period of social development.

They stand in stark contrast to the morals a majority of society now hold, and are repugnant to common sense, contemporary social norms and the law.

They are the views of a bigoted, narrow minded and unintelligent individual, and are an indication of deep seeded psychological issues.

Your views are in direct conflict with your duties as a practitioner and you should not be allowed to practice.

Since you’re a fan of bible quotes, I’ll leave you with this advice:

O simple ones, learn prudence; O fools, learn sense.
