    What is this shit?

    An increasing number of Nelson men worried that they might lash out and hurt their partners are voluntarily taking them to Women's Refuge, but the centre says their actions might not protect women from violence.
    Nelson Women's and Children's Refuge manager Trudie Brand said the centre was incredibly busy, as was usual over the stressful summer holiday period, and staff and volunteers had noticed a trend of men bringing in their partners in recent months.
    "Men are bringing women in and saying, 'I give you permission to work with them'."
    Ms Brand said the It's Not OK campaign was likely to have had an impact on men, who were realising that it was acceptable to seek help if they were violent towards their partners.
    However, she said that men who brought in their partners were still exercising power and control over them, which was a form of, and a precursor to, violent behaviour.
    "They're implying there is something wrong with the women."
    In only two instances, men had come in and indicated that they needed help themselves because they were worried that their behaviour amounted to, or could develop into, physical or emotional abuse.
    Ms Brand said the centre had also noticed an increase in the number of young women, aged 16 and 17, with older partners who were seeking help because they had been victims of domestic violence.
    She welcomed the trend, saying younger women had a different mindset from older generations and were more prepared to seek help than their mothers had been.
    Ms Brand said the centre was bracing itself for the two months after Christmas, which were its busiest time of the year.
    In the four days since Christmas, it received 17 calls, twice as many as usual. These involved assaults and threats to kill.
    "Some involved alcohol, others were just the pressures of Christmas no money, so someone takes the blame." A child and a woman were admitted to hospital and others were given advice or support.
    In October, the centre received 395 phone calls from people needing help. That rose to 497 in November and was on track to be higher for December, Ms Brand said.
    She said anyone who needed help during the stressful holiday period should call the refuge's 24-hour crisis line on 0800 163 344.
    Nelson Bays police family violence intervention coordinator Sergeant Mal Drummond said that last December and January, police attended 91 family violence incidents, the highest ever for that period.
    He said family arguments often occurred over money, relationships ending and access to children, and more incidents involving alcohol occurred during the festive season than at any other time.
    Police were often called out over custody disputes during the summer holidays.
    Mr Drummond urged people to avoid situations that had the potential to escalate, and said police wanted to see people enjoying "Christmas cheers, not Christmas tears".

    Absolute bull-shit!
    But the police are toeing the DV line as in prosecuting any man that dare fall foul of the feminist line.


    Are these guys bringing these women to the wrong place, where they should have been sent to the police station for their own violence?
    Also note that the Womens Refuse is now called the Women and Children's Refuge, just to shame men a wee bit more.

    Re: What is this shit?

    These guys in Nelson have the right idea.

    If you have a recalcitrant, vicious dog, you dump it at the dog pound.

    If you have a recalcitrant, vicious woman, dump her off at the Women's Shelter.

    Re: What is this shit?

    Wow, feminist bitch must of come across one example they can moan about..

    In our state the locations of shelters are a well kept secret and no one can find them unless given the address and even then they do NOT ALLOW MALES TO ENTER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE even if they are victims..

    They call the cops..

    Another load of hogwash designed primarily to elevate their victim-hood doctrine..

    The catch phrase would be..

    "They're implying there is something wrong with the women."
    Really, that's different..

    100% correct percy, and not only is it wise, the police seem to quite approve of such tactics. Its shame that women need to be treated like disposible temporary features, but, sadly, they only have themselves to blame. The risks involved in keeping a dangerously deranged wild beast in ones home are too great, not only for oneself, but ones children..

    Controlling behaviour?

    Yes. A man needs to have control, lack of it results in dangerous situations, the majority of men are well adapted and equipped to take up the reins when needed..

    Thumbs down Re: What is this shit?

    One other thing from the article that stands out.
    How is that women get an 0800 (free call) number to ring and the feminazi partyvan will turn up at your door and rescue her abused self and "her" kids?
    And probably beat you up if you dare say anything, while your house is being pillaged of anything valuable.
    And to think that call a place like the Wimmins Refuse, a Community Service.
    Us men get to ring the police, if you aren't laughed at for a few minutes, you might get a patrol car come around and the officers will try and "resolve" the situation, whereby, you'll be told by the officers as they leave, that she didn't really mean to try and stab you and she is sorry for you having called the police (as busy as they are) , it won't happen again.

    Next time, you'll be needing an ambulance or the coroner.

    """..Next time, you'll be needing an ambulance or the coroner...."""

    this is almost identical to a scenario I experienced with a mustang when I was about 30

    she tried to skewer me with a carving knife in one of her borderline fits of rage and lacerated her hand with the knurl of the knife when she missed in her stab and hit the door instead

    she then walked a couple of kilometres to the local police and alleged I was responsible for the wound on her palm

    however this was in 1975 and the police were not so feminit victim conscious then so they just walked away shaking their heads

    nowadays I believe I would have been charged with some new age crime against a feminit wimyn

    that psycho virago taught me a lot about wimyn's mind set
    (a wimyn's minset is immutable and has been since the first epoch of man)

    feminit rule 1 -

    never accept personal responsibility for ones personal error but project all fault onto the nearest man ( chauvinistic pig)

    if he is incarcerate POOOOOOOOOOOf - just a mere male and a dime a dozen

    Re: What is this shit?

    I have sent a few women to the "refuse" dump in my time..

    No way should a man have to tolerate a vicious over-emotion woman in his house.

    Its not safe..
