The other is that there are many progressive men here on TS, and there will be a general support for #metoonz at the philosophical level.

But I’m pointing to the work that needs to be done in our own house around sharing power with women and I’m suggesting that it is on the men here to do that if they want to keep considering themselves progressive.

Men have been told about these issues for a long time and were simply unwilling to change.

I’m the same age as Alison Mau and like many of our generation I was marching in Reclaim the Night marches in 80s.

Learn what happened with the Morgan Marquis-Boire case and consider why this has been discussed so little in NZ.

Think about why Tony Veitch continued to be employed in television. If you are unable to make the connections in all of that, then there are things for you to learn about women’s politics.

The same applies for people in a relationship that are looking for some affair dating.

Badults has numerous of clients in your area of NZ just looking for casual encounters.We remember what it was like when men were largely in charge, and we see what it is like now that women have some power.To get that kind of support you have to have the numbers, and that means we let all women through the gate across society, not just the ones we politically favour.I’ve had this argument in left wing spaces before, a lot of people, usually men, pushing back against the idea that numbers of women per se are important.It’s not just the anti-solidarity/anti-identity politics crowd, it includes feminist-supportive left wing men who see politics through a white male political lens. Women have been talking about #metoo and rape culture for ever and it is only because women now have enough institutional power that something can be done.These are big gains because they signify that the culture is changing.
