Feminazi Law Students Become Feminazi
Lawyers and Judges

Universities used to be elite ivory towers
which provided knowledge -- though with religious, class and other biases,
of course. Now they are generally too easy to enter to be elite, and they
have a heavy Left-wing political bias that taints the knowledge that they
produce. It may seem admirable to have Women's Studies departments and Maori
Studies departments, etc., but unless those departments are balanced by their
counterparts (Men's Studies, etc.), they act as centres of activism and tilt
the whole university to the Left.
There's no point saying that the mainstream departments provide a balance,
because they don't. The same political correctness that brought about the
Women's Studies and Maori Studies departments also influences what it is permissible
to say in mainstream departments, such as Law faculties. Sociology departments
(with a few exceptions) are routinely Leftist. Until universities start to
fear that there might be a cost associated with this bias, it will persist.
In the Law faculty where I am studying, there is an organisation of female
staff and students called (I think) "Women in Law". This organisation
gets its announcements broadcast to entire lecture-halls of students -- both
male and female. The students mostly come straight from high school -- in
other words (from my point of view as a mature student), they know virtually
nothing about the World. Worse than that -- they know less than nothing, because
they have been brainwashed by Feminist high school teachers.
I was a high school teacher, and I found the union (the PPTA) to be run
by a grossly hypocritical, manipulative, and totalitarian bunch of Leftist
activists. Using members' fees, they produce a women's newsletter called "Neo",
in which the explicitly broadcast arguments to (try to) prove that women are
disadvantaged, relative to men. This had nothing to do with education, and
everything to do with an abuse of union power. Naturally, this propaganda
is passed on to students -- directly or indirectly.
In Law school, one compulsory course involved watching an emotive Women's
Refuge propaganda video (one hour long) and listening to a couple of Rape
Crisis activists lecture us on their simplistic
ideas and incompetent research. No opposing point of view to Rape Crisis or
to the Women's Refuge movement was given equal free speech in that course.
Intellectually, it was really slumming! To demonstrate that in the case
of the Women's Refuge video, I'd have to go through the transcript in detail,
but it is quite easy to show that for the Rape Crisis presentation. The presenters
called ideas that they didn't like "myths", without (for the most
part) presenting any evidence. The evidence that they did present was based
on statistics gathered from women who had come to Rape Crisis centres. Assuming
that the subjects had told the truth and that Rape Crisis had not doctored
the results (both very dubious assumptions, anyway), the statistics were meaningless,
because the sample was a self-selected sample, rather than a random sample.
In terms of Professor Janet Hoek's article "Surveys in the Dock"
("Massey" magazine Issue 15, November 2003), this was an instance
of "Coverage Error".
Most of the Law students students there obviously didn't have a clue about
surveys or statistics. I asked the presenters if I could see the statistics,
and I was told I could see them after the lecture. After the lecture, I went
to see them but I was told I would have to go to their website to see them.
At home, I went to their website, but the statistics weren't there either
During the lecture, I cast doubt on the reliability of Feminist statistics,
since (for one reason) I knew of:
Sommers, Christina Hoff (1994): "Who Stole Feminism ? How Women Have
Betrayed Women" New York:Simon and Schuster and
Sommers, Christina Hoff (1994): Figuring Out Feminism. in "National
Review" magazine, June 27, 1994.
But the massed phalanx of Feminazi students shouted me down -- so I gave
them a mini-lecture about free speech. It is hard to know whether to be more
appalled at their stupidity or at their Fascism.
In a Public Law lecture, I corrected the (young, Maori, female) lecturer
about the meaning of the term contra proferentem (which she had misspelled
on the blackboard, anyway). She said I was wrong, and a small group of (male
and female) students burst out laughing at my having (supposedly) been caught
out. But then another mature student, sitting in the front row, spoke to the
lecturer, and the lecturer then called out to me that I had been right, after
all ! There is obviously a vast amount of stupidity and fascism amongst Law
students -- just waiting to get out into the real world and run the legal
system on our behalf !
I am writing this to let people -- especially in the Men's and Fathers'
Movement -- know what we are up against. Generations of people like this have
no doubt already graduated and are now running legal systems all around the
Western World. Lawyers and judges of this type have
no doubt actually been given preferential promotion, on the grounds that they
are women ! They may even be at the head of our highest courts !
If that is Democracy, can Revolution be far away ?
