Dublin City Council Should Pull Sexist Campaign and Apologise to Men

It seems as though nothing is beyond the scope of UN indoctrination campaigns - and, no doubt, significant funding - for the radical feminist cause.

And now, Dublin City Council have decided to "support" (and, very likely, take any associated funding on offer) with the latest campaign, called the "UN Women's Safe Cities Global Initiative."

Beneath its blatantly sexist rhetoric, this "global initiative" has a good intention: To "develop, implement, and evaluate tools, policies and comprehensive approaches on the prevention of and response to sexual harassment and other forms of sexual violence against women and girls across different settings."

But, as the picture accompanying this petition (a Dublin City Council poster, depicting a man ostensibly saying something unbecoming to a woman) amply demonstrates, Dublin City Council is supporting an initiative which is openly prejudiced against men.

This sexist and offensive poster says: "A Sexist Remark Is Not A Compliment. Street Harassment is unwanted, unacceptable and makes women feel unsafe."

Of course, sexist remarks, by men against women, are demeaning and uncivil.

But, this campaign is so blatantly sexist, that, by supporting it, Dublin City Council have overstepped the mark for several reasons:

In the first instance, this campaign automatically prejudices (i.e. "pre-judges") men before they even open their mouths, and, is, therefore, in itself, a blatantly sexist campaign. Perhaps, this campaign, itself, is actually "hate speech", as it is prejudicing other potentially hateful and violent people against men, simply for being men.

Secondly, and moreover, it is absolutely outrageous that Dublin City Council should pretend to be a body capable of defining what is "acceptable" and what is "unacceptable" in terms of public speech.

What is offensive is very subjective, and so, should every perceived offense be considered "harassment" from now on? How do Dublin City Council propose to police such offences?

People should not be shielded, by the state, against every unkind word said against them. Rather, people should be taught about civil discourse and treating others with respect - by their parents, the Church and Civil Society.

Third, it is not the duty of the state to teach men good manners, and this kind of nanny state is most unwelcome. Can anyone say, "Thought Police...Hate Speech Database..."?

Fourth, this campaign lumps together "unwanted sexual remarks" with "touching", and "rape and femicide". Yes, actually, all in the same sentence! But, these are false equivalents!

Fifth, this campaign assumes that women are always victims of sexual harassment, when, in fact, they may be the perpetrators.

For these reasons, this petition calls for the immediate removal of any remaining "UN/Dublin City Council Women's Safe Cities Global Initiative" posters, and for an apology, issued by Dublin City Council, to the men of Dublin and Ireland, and to any males visiting Dublin over the last two months - for hurt caused and damage to their reputations.

Thank you for signing this urgent petition!

FOR MORE INFORMATION:

Strangely, amongst the roughly 40 press releases sent by Dublin City Council during the months of August, September, October, one on the "UN Women's Safe Cities Global Initiative" is conspicuously absent.

Dublin City Council Should Pull Sexist Campaign and Apologise to Men

For the Kind Attention of:

  • Chief Executive of Dublin City Council - Mr Owen Keegan

Dublin City Council have decided to "support" (and, very likely, take any associated funding on offer) the latest campaign from UN Women, called the "UN Women's Safe Cities Global Initiative."

Beneath its blatantly sexist rhetoric, this "global initiative" has a good intention: To "develop, implement, and evaluate tools, policies and comprehensive approaches on the prevention of and response to sexual harassment and other forms of sexual violence against women and girls across different settings."

But, as the picture accompanying this petition (a Dublin City Council poster, depicting a man ostensibly saying something unbecoming to a woman) amply demonstrates, Dublin City Council is supporting an initiative which is openly prejudiced against men.

This sexist and offensive poster says: "A Sexist Remark Is Not A Compliment. Street Harassment is unwanted, unacceptable and makes women feel unsafe."

Of course, sexist remarks, by men against women, are demeaning and uncivil.

But, this campaign is so blatantly sexist, that, by supporting it, Dublin City Council have overstepped the mark for several reasons:

1) This campaign automatically prejudices (i.e. "pre-judges") men before they even open their mouths, and, is, therefore, in itself, a blatantly sexist campaign.

2) It is absolutely outrageous that Dublin City Council should pretend to be a body capable of defining what is "acceptable" and what is "unacceptable" in terms of public speech. We do not want a "hate speech database".

3) It is not the duty of the state to teach men good manners, and this kind of nanny state is most unwelcome.

4) Campaign documents lump together "unwanted sexual remarks" with "touching", and "rape and femicide". Yes, actually, all in the same sentence! But, these are false equivalents!

5) This campaign assumes that women are always victims of sexual harassment, when, in fact, they may be the perpetrators.

For these reasons, this petition calls for the immediate removal of any remaining "UN/Dublin City Council Women's Safe Cities Global Initiative" posters, and for an apology, issued by Dublin City Council, to the men of Dublin and Ireland, and to any males visiting Dublin over the last two months - for hurt caused and damage to their reputations.
