Trigger Warning: this post mentions sexual violence and cyber bullying. Proceed with caution if this is triggering for you. After the backlash against ABC’s Q and A for giving a platform for convicted criminal and accused terrorist sympathiser, Zaky Mallah, a tweet was exposed, threatening to gang rape journalists Miranda Devine and Rita Panahi written by Mallah himself. One thing I want to know is, where is the feminists? Where is the media and public condemnation of Mallah? To my knowledge, there has been virtually no media attention to this. Last week, I was furious when I heard about the raoe threats that Clementine Ford allegedly reciever on Facebook and it’s response when reported. The messages themselves were ignored, but when Ford published the messages, her account ended being deleted. Journalists and public figures are not immune to receiving repulsive abuse on social media. Earlier this year, a video was made of women reading out abusive tweets and Facebook posts about them. Some became very violent and repulsive.
Meanwhile, after last week’s ‘Q and A’, it came to light that he wrote a tweet (later deleted I think), about gang raping News Corp columnists Miranda Devine and Rita Panahi. That’s sickening! My question is, where is the media outrage? Why hasn’t there been a story on ‘The Project’ like there was for Clementine Ford? Why haven’t Mamamia done an online campaign condemning this?
Is if because they’re conservative?
Is it because they work at News Corp publications?
Because Miranda Devine’s an outspoken Catholic?
This is why feminism has become such a joke! So much for equality! How can feminists be expected to be taken seriously when tfhe feminists don’tceven stand up for other women. All women.
