That's hearbreaking knowing Australia and UK are so restricted with speech, esp. when it harms women. USA has the First Amendment precisely because nobody was going to tell an Englishman what he could or couldn't say! Colonies tend to preserve older traditions. Sad that Mother England, and then the Commonwealth (I guess Australia is still Commonwealth?) countries moved into WokeWorld. USA has too, but Free Speech is a "fight to the death" issue for most Americans. Not so much for our immigrants or young people though, and that scares me.

Australia is deeply misogynist, really atrocious. You should see the way some of our male politicians act in the legislative chamber because they have parliamentary privilege - Abbott, Hazard, Leyjohnhelm - all of them have been grossly, graphically and explicitly sexist.
