Nelson College Headmaster, Salvi Gargiulo, got media
attention when he complained about boy-hating, sexist and criminal slogans
on girls' underwear that was being sold by Farmers. He called for a
boycott of Farmers.
On Friday 7 May 2004 at 7:28 pm (New Zealand Time), I emailed Farmers,
the media, politicians, and our Men's Movement (and rang two TV stations),
saying that I would be laying a complaint with the Police about Farmers
committing Incitement to Commit Assault With Intent To Injure, under
the Crimes Act 1961.
I also wrote:
'If the police refuse to prosecute Farmers,
I will ask them if they have any objection to my standing outside the
police station with a sign saying:
"Throw rocks at The Police -- The police
are thick and sexist !"
and/or outside Farmers with the sign:
"Throw rocks at Farmers -- Farmers are
thick and sexist !"'
On Saturday morning 8/5/2004, the radio news said they had refused
to stop selling them, because they were selling well -- but later the
media announced a change of mind, on Farmers' part.
It is significant that no one noticed that Farmers
were committing a criminal offence, until I pointed it out. The fact
is, if it's a crime by (or for) females against males, it's not really
a crime, in the Western World.
