A taxpayer funded study has made the audacious claim that Australians need to show ‘cultural sensitivity’ towards migrant men who physically abuse their wife and children.
The study conducted over a three year period was funded by the Australian Research Council and points out that some human rights affect migrants’ integration and ‘successful settlement in Australia’, specifically those in relation to women and children.
Have we no confidence in our own culture? Should not migrants to this land adapt to our ways, not the other way around? 20th century Western culture or seventh Arab culture, or Aboriginal culture … whose rules should prevail? Which culture would you rather live under? Or should we have different laws for people based on their ethnic origin or something? What a regressive study!
Yet the study has faced strong resistance in the shape of federal Minister for Women Michaelia Cash who has stated Australia is categorically against family violence.
‘Violence against women is unacceptable in any circumstances,’ Ms Cash told The Saturday Telegraph.
Thank you Michaelia Cash. Stand firm for our values.
