If you have a problem with a billboard of two Muslim Aussie kids wearing hijabs smiling and waving Aussie flags, then you don't have a problem with Radical Muslims. You have a problem with all Muslims. Even the youngest, most innocent, most happy to assimilate and be Aussie, Muslims. There's officially nothing a Muslim could ever do to make you respect them as a fellow Aussie. Don't give me that "they have to respect our ways" baloney. These ones are and you're still being a dick.
You don't respect your fellow Aussies' religious freedom, you're a bully to kids, and you're, well, not very relaxed which is basically our thing. You are the most unAussie Aussie ever. Those kids are more Aussie than you.

"As a feminist writer, I'm used to being told that I hate men and want to demonise everything they do. It's inevitable that some of the responses to this piece will focus on how I don't need to worry, no man will ever ask to see my breasts and that perhaps that's what I'm really angry about. I will also be told that if I want to focus on "real abuse", I should look to the Middle East and Islam, and stop laying into the good men of Australia. But I'm interested in the cognitive dissonance that instructs people to, on the one hand, fiercely defend men against charges of misogynist objectification while insisting on the other that people (and women especially) should know what to expect when they enter these environments.
Why are women told in general to modify our behaviour because "there are (amorphous) bad people out there", yet when evidence of mass sexual harassment is reported at a specific event populated by people with actual faces and community standing, it's discounted as men blowing off steam and ... having fun?
Why are the events like the mass groping at Cologne used as an example of how immigrant men pose a threat to "our women", yet white Australian men acting in a similar fashion at a car show is dismissed as "boys being boys"?
Why are people okay with perpetuating the cultural belief that harassing women is not only something men like to do to express the bonds of friendship with each other, but that it's also not a big deal because those same men have declared it so?"
Thanks so much to everyone who shared their experiences of Summernats. I hope I've made it clear that this behaviour isn't representative of the whole event or the attendees. However, I think it still needs to be addressed and the larger question of why it's excused should be examined.

Not surprising to learn that Malcolm Turnbull’s new Minister for Health championed a two-tier American style health system in his maiden speech – it’s what Liberals do. You just can’t trust them with Medicare.
