@barrysaunders Well maybe when sexual assault victims all wear a badge so we know to just agree with everything they say, it’ll be easier.

via Janetter for Mac

@barrysaunders “Often”? But since you’re deliberately conflating risk assessment with half-arsed rhetoric I’ll leave you to it.

via Janetter for Mac

@barrysaunders I’ve no emotional engagement with street lamps. Actually I do. I sometimes get frustrated that they destroy my night vision.

via Janetter for Mac

@barrysaunders Understanding why a fucked-up procedure is supported is no excuse for it to continue. The opposite, I’d say.

via Janetter for Mac

@barrysaunders In all of this, basing procedures on paranoia and misinformation rather than risk assessment is the unacceptable error.

via Janetter for Mac

@barrysaunders Again ignoring the counter-stat: How many random men in the street are NOT about to attack? But let’s all praise paranoia.

via Janetter for Mac

@barrysaunders The old “It’s OK to discriminate against Muslims until they stop all their terrorists” argument. Expected better.

via Janetter for Mac

I don’t know if I can catch a plane any more because of all the men fucking six-year-olds in the aisles.

via Janetter for Mac

@hopeinhell Then you truly are a fuckwit. Jesus wept.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to hopeinhell

@hopeinhell It precisely this poisonous pedophile-paranoia that’s made it impossible for adults to have normal interactions with kids.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to hopeinhell

@hopeinhell And to top it all off, bullshit “statistics”. Kids’ PARENTS are the biggest risk, not random passengers. Get a fucking grip!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to hopeinhell

@hopeinhell “Safeguard that needs to be in place”? What utter paranoid bullshit! We don’t move bus passengers, and they live local!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to hopeinhell

@hopeinhell If you can’t see that a [plicy that assumes all men are a threat, all women not, is deeply prejudiced then I am without words.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to hopeinhell

@hopeinhell Yeah well bigots never agree that their fucked up worldviews are bigoted, do they? All women are weak and hysterical too, right?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to hopeinhell

@hopeinhell All men are pedos, all Muslims terrorists, all gays carry disease, assume that until labelled? Worst kind of prejudice!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to hopeinhell

@hopeinhell Do you have any idea how outrageously fucked up your comments are? I am truly fucking disgusted. @smperris

via Janetter for Mac in reply to hopeinhell

@joshgnosis How do you knit a lesbian? Do you need special wool?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to joshgnosis

RT @kcarruthers: good idea! Repeat After Me: Your Company Needs A Mantra kcar.me/OP61rG [Yes. STFU And Get On With Your Job.]

via Janetter for Mac

There are “civil” and “respectful” ways of treating all men as pedophiles, @juhasaarinen @joneaves @smperris? Well that’s OK then.

via Janetter for Mac

So, the Mars panorama image has a caption…

via Janetter for Mac

@franksting @R_Chirgwin I’m no expert, but I gather the snow here rarely lasts more than a couple hours. I haven’t seen any yet though.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to franksting

@Pollytics @SnarkyPlatypus Sounds like bullshit. There isn’t any fat in cheese.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Pollytics

smperris Interesting to see Virgin copping all the pain when Qantas has the exact same policy about men sitting next to unaccompanied minors.

via Tweetbot for iOS (retweeted on 5:40 PM, Aug 10th, 2012 via Janetter for Mac)

@expectproblems I am the world. You must face your reality. Also not sit next to unaccompanied children.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to expectproblems

Indeed, @VirginAustralia @SisterMorphine, to pre-judge men as always dangerous, women always not, is the very definition of prejudice.

via Janetter for Mac

SisterMorphine How can you say that your intention wasn’t to discriminate, when you create a policy that explicitly states that you intend to discriminate?

via Echofon (retweeted on 5:31 PM, Aug 10th, 2012 via Janetter for Mac)

VirginAustralia Regarding concerns raised around our policy for children travelling alone, our intention was not to discriminate virg.co/HsnVk

Hang on. The thing about only believing @TonyAbbottMHR when in writing. Did he put that in writing?

via Janetter for Mac

Does that mean all Liberal MPs get their instructions in writing?

via Janetter for Mac

Imagine a Prime Minister that there’s no point talking to, because he wouldn’t stand behind his word. Drug dealers are more trustworthy.

via Janetter for Mac

But @TonyAbbottMHR has already told us that it’s only true if he writes it down. Journalists should not interview him such that he speaks.

via Janetter for Mac

I would appear that @TonyAbbottMHR is the true embodiment of the Dunning-Kruger Effect, @R_Chirgwin

via Janetter for Mac

People choose to do this, and take it very very seriously. buzzfeed.com/gavon/synchron…

via Janetter for Mac

Yes, Anonymous, let’s show how we don’t need more law enforcement online by… smashing up more websites. Arsehats.

via Janetter for Mac

@SisterMorphine No. Rocket, into Sun. It’s the only way.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SisterMorphine

Oh FFS just launch all these arseholes into the Sun.

via Janetter for Mac

@penjakti “Yuppies”? No, not even remotely the same species as hipsters.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SynthSid

RT @puzzlement Dads and wee ones always have a bit of extra squee, y/n? flickr.com/photos/aenigma… [Unless flying @VirginAustralia , I guess.]

via Plume for Android

I must not stab the hipsters they are guests in our country. I must not stab the hipsters they are guests in our country. [Breathe]

RT @glengyron And as usual, @stilgherrian is lock-step with Andrew Bolt “Protecting children by vilifying men?” blogs.news.com.au/heraldsun/andr…

via Plume for Android

@bernietb I knew this guy who always drove slowly past schools. He spun some shit about speed limits but yeah like sure.

via Plume for Android in reply to bernietb

If America is Land of Individuality, why do all the music videos have ranks of people dancing exactly the same way?

via Plume for Android

My laughing has subsided to a quiet, intermittent chuckle.

via Plume for Android

Fri plan, updated: 1309 train from Central to Leura; shopping; return to @bunjaree; stay warm, if possible.

via Plume for Android

I was fairly sure it’s possible to tell the difference between Twitter and Disneyland.

via Plume for Android

I’m shattered. Just shattered.

via Plume for Android

@Adelaidetweetie BTW, I’ll swear if and when I think it’s appropriate to convey the mood of what I’m saying.

via Plume for Android in reply to Adelaidetweetie

@Adelaidetweetie I was wondering when the “You don’t have a child” card would be played. Only parents can have opinions on our society? Hah!

via Plume for Android in reply to Adelaidetweetie

@Adelaidetweetie Quite frankly I’d want any child of mine to have a healthier attitude to new situations.

via Plume for Android in reply to Adelaidetweetie

@Adelaidetweetie You seem to be working very hard to persuade me to agree with this paranoid psychotic “beware men are dangerous” notion. :/

via Plume for Android in reply to Adelaidetweetie

Meeting someone new is not “strange”, it’s perfectly normal.

via Plume for Android

The very term “strange man” is pretty fucking loaded. Try “new friend” for size.

via Plume for Android

RT @BXGD @en_gy @stilgherrian Perhaps @VirginAustralia could make women and children wear veils, to not excite men. For their own safety.

via Plume for Android

SisterMorphine @stilgherrian I don’t know what you’re complaining about. Everyone knows men don’t have feelings. They’re just walking penises with wallets

via Echofon (retweeted on 11:21 AM, Aug 10th, 2012 via Plume for Android)

RT @intrepidfear I’ve been made to swap seats with wife so I was not next to unaccompanied minor. Wife wasn’t suspicious until then.

via Plume for Android

Oh it’s a bit windy out here.

via Plume for Android

I’ve always assumed that talkback hosts that go on and on about pedophiles are projecting something more personal than community concern.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @iain_chalmers: And we accuse Al Queda of terrorism! When do we send the fear-mongering media to Guantanmo and waterboard them?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @glengyron: Typically paedophiles take time to groom victims. They slowly build trust (which they then abuse). Not on one flight.

via Janetter for Mac

I’m reminded of the US kid who hid and stayed lost in the woods for days, despite searchers nearby, because “never talk to strangers”.

via Janetter for Mac

Think it through, folks. Whenever a pedophile is convicted it’s major news. So, how common must it be? Vanishingly uncommon, perhaps?

via Janetter for Mac

@Adelaidetweetie Yes, and what is the percentage of men or women who are NOT pedophiles? Possibly… the vast majority? Paranoia FTL. :/

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Adelaidetweetie

Must write up the time I was all but assaulted by Newcastle surf lifesavers because I had “a serious looking camera”… photographing ships.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @joneaves: Try being a single/separated dad picking up your own child from school. Glad I’ve got a thick skin. [I’ve seen this, yes.]

via Janetter for Mac

I’m being told that @QantasAirways has the same policy as @VirginAustralia, so time for you to take a good hard look at yourselves too.

via Janetter for Mac

It’s now impossible to pause on a daily walk and smile with simple joy at kids playing in the park. “WHY ARE YOU STOPPING?”

via Janetter for Mac

It does disturb me that the lens through which we observe society, almost as a priority, is “All unaccompanied males are a pedo threat.”

via Janetter for Mac

Maybe I’ll just assume all @VirginAustralia pilots are alcoholics and catch another airline.

via Janetter for Mac

San Francisco and Bay Area people, it’s confirmed. I have dates free in your locale Thu 30 Aug to Mon 3 Sep. You know what to do.

via Janetter for Mac

Maybe I should have lunch in Sydney before heading back to the Blue Mountains?

via Janetter for Mac

Me on @RNDrive last night about “that” Facebook page. (ABC page doesn’t mention me, I’m after the Commissioner.) abc.net.au/radionational/…

My last tweet seems to display wrong in Twitter’s web interface ‘cos of an HTML entity error. $8.4B company makes WebDev 101 error. Sigh.

via Janetter for Mac

Fri plan, semi-ordered: Research & planning; return to Mountains; shopping in Leura, probably; stay warm; minor client webby works; TGIF?

via Janetter for Mac

Yeah, OK, Friday. Give me a moment.
