Reclaim the afternoon and early evening

By johnboy - 29 October 2006 47

I had the pleasure on Friday afternoon to saunter past the “reclaim the night” rally in Garema Place

Oddly enough it was still bright daylight at the time. Sadly I couldn’t hear the speakers over the top of the buskers next to King O’

I have stopped calling them bogans and booners. I believe the Canberra breed is more of a hybrid, so I now call them ‘boners’.

Feel free to use it.

BTW I am far from a misogynist, but there is a lot of rhetoric being espoused by some of these womyn that, to be quite frank, is a lie.

“the curfew mentality imposed on all women”

Bollocks. Pop into Civic at 3am on a Sunday morning.

Any efforts to reduce the incidences of violence against women is a worthwhile cause. In fact, reducing violence against anyone in society is a worthy of time and effort. I don’t know anyone I associate with that would condone any kind of physical assault against women and children.

I don’t have much time for re-spelling words (“Herstory” instead of “history”, “womyn”), and I think that the website authors should try and remember that even though the majority of offenders are male, the majority of males aren’t necessarily offenders. Labelling men as evil sex fiends is as ridiculous as the notion of original sin.

Oh, and grannies are hot (especially when they’re lesbos and getting married and … well, you know the rest).
