MeToo in reverse

On the other side, her ideological opposite, libertarian senator David Leyonhjelm.

Hanson canada goose outlet sale Young was speaking against a motion that would allow women to carry concealed weapons such as pepper spray or tasers to fend off violent attackers.

«I voted no, because I don believe that putting more weapons in the hands of the public will make women safer in their homes or on uk canada goose outlet the streets at night,» she canada goose outlet store uk later wrote in an op ed for the Guardian.

«I also don think that women should continue to be made to have to take responsibility for the violent crimes and behavior that some men perpetuate,» she wrote.

As debate raged in the chamber, Hanson Young said she heard Leyonhjelm yell across at her: «You should stop shagging men, Sarah.»

She described the events in a series of tweets.

More than a week later, Leyonhjelm has not apologized.

To the contrary, the 66 year old one time veterinarian doubled down, appearing canada goose outlet parka on television shows https://www.st-edwards-cam.org.uk to not only affirm the comments he made to the 36 year old politician, but to voice even more salacious suggestions about her.

In an interview with Sky News Australia, he told the two men interviewing him that there were canada goose outlet jackets rumors about Hanson Young in parliament. The comments were then displayed in an on screen caption, causing an outrage.

A producer for the show was suspended, but the hosts, who had asked Leyonhjelm to refrain from cursing canada goose on their Sunday show because some of their audience was religious, were not.

This time, however, they say he has gone so far that both the current prime minister, Malcolm Turnbull, and previous leaders including staunch Catholic Tony Abbott, have called on canada goose uk shop Leyonhjelm to apologize.

«All of us I suppose get carried away but when canada goose outlet you make a mistake, fix it,» Abbott told a Sydney radio station this week. «People should be better than that.»

When Turnbull asked Leyonhjelm to issue an apology, the senator responded to the notion with another slur, this time directed at the prime minister.

«This is about misandry,» Leyonhjelm told Australia SBS News. «The prime minister should stop being such a pussy. This is about criticism canada goose outlet store of all men. It just as bad as criticism of all women.»

«It really not normal and it quite stunning, canada goose outlet new york city and has shocked most of the country,» commentator Jane Gilmore told CNN. «It partly because he canada goose outlet uk doesn have to answer to anyone. Because he not saying official canada goose outlet it in the Senate, the president (of the Chamber) doesn have any right to tell him to shut up.»

Leyonhjelm is a Liberal Democrat, and the only canada goose outlet toronto factory one in his party who was elected to either of Australia federal houses of parliament.

«He an obscure figure with a very low support base, who is up for re election and this is desperate attention seeking on canada goose clearance sale his part to remind, particularly a core of, his minority supporters, who he is,» said Rob Manwaring, cheap canada goose a senior lecturer in the College of Business, Law and Government at Australia Flinders University.

He likely had more air time this past week Canada Goose Parka canada goose outlet than he has had his entire time in the Senate, Manwaring speculates.

«This has made international coverage, and his hardened minority, this will strengthen their resolve and support for him,» he said.

Misandry and misogyny

The motion Hanson Young and Leyonhjelm had disagreed over in the Senate stemmed from action taken in response to the canada goose store brutal rape and killing of a 22 year old female comedian in June.

The attack stunned the community, not only because it happened in what is a relatively safe city, but because police later advised residents to «take responsibility for your own safety.» Many canada goose factory sale took that to mean that Victoria Police Superintendent David Clayton was somehow blaming Eurydice Dixon for her own murder.

«Male violence against women has been on the political agenda for a while, there a national plan and ongoing work to raise issues, and that what triggered Leyonhjelm reaction,» Manwaring told CNN.

Manwaring says Australia has had a long history of politicians trading insults across the floors of parliament, but this time, the escalation from Leyonhjelm, coupled with his Canada Goose Outlet refusal to apologize for any of his words, is different.

Leyonhjelm repeated use of the word «misandry» which he defines as the opposite of «misogyny» and directed at men is part of a backlash against a shift in politics towards a more feminist stance.

Misandry, Leyonhjelm has said, is «sexist, it the equivalent of misogyny except that it against men instead of against women and I won tolerate it. canada goose factory outlet I stand up against it.».
