Misogyny Justified by Defence of ANZAC Day? (The War On Catherine Deveny)

#auspol @CatherineDeveny

Catherine Deveny has been at the centre of the most vile misogyny ever seen in this country, topped only by the vitriol directed at females in politics.

The reason for the hate mail/rape threats/death threats/slander/defamation/appearance judgement?

In the tweets which sparked the outcry, Deveny wrote that “Days like #anzacday are simply a rewriting of history to stop the sucked in and ripped off burning down parliament and killing politicians.”

She added: “I would like to see parades, medals and glorification for survivors of domestic violence, mental illness and sexual abuse #anzacday.”

Deveny is suggesting that;

* ANZAC Day is overly glorified and less of a remembrance day than a day of celebrating and getting trashed. Agree?

* ANZAC Day is a welcome distraction for politicians who are slashing the guts out education, health, transport etc and finding new and inventive ways to ensure you continue to be oppressed. Agree?

* As a nation we glorify war and we pay absolutely zero attention to survivors of domestic violence, mental illness and sexual abuse. Agree?

Here is the backlash. Screenshots taken from here
