David Morrison A.O.
Chairman, Diversity Council Australia.
I refer to the article published in “The Australian” on Wednesday 11 Nov 2015 and the web site published by the diversity council of Australia. I also enclose an article published in “The Australian” on 14 Nov 2015.
Your concern for victims of domestic violence is only apparent if the victims are women. According to Bettina Arndt both men and women can be victims of domestic violence. This means that you discriminate against male victims of domestic violence because they are male.
I am long since sick and tired of being patronised with sexist hypocrisy. It is my belief you have decided to take this position because you think you look good in the eyes of women and you stand to further your political career in doing so. It seems you are aware of the resulting culture of discrimination against men or lack the intellect to understand the blatantly obvious about the topic you choose to patronise others about.
Your promotion of a culture of discrimination against men in order to propel your political career should disgust every decent person in Australia, it certainly disgusts me.
It has previously been reported that you told sexist members of the armed forces to “get out”. I now call upon you to resign your position as chairman, Diversity Council of Australia, with the same rhetoric you have chosen to use on others:
Get out you hypocrite.
