Skip to comments.When Senator Leyonhjelm told me to ‘stop shagging men’, I had to speak up

Yesterday the Senate was asked to vote on whether the best thing to do to prevent the assault, rape and murder of women is to arm them.
I voted no, because I dont believe that putting more weapons in the hands of the public will make women safer in their homes or on the streets at night. I also dont think that women should continue to be made to have to take responsibility for the violent crimes and behaviour that some men perpetuate. Truth is, every woman I know has felt unsafe or intimidated at some point, whether it was at a bar, walking home at night, her work place or tragically even in her own home. The safety and security of women shouldnt require half the country armed, in fear of the threat of its other half.

The Senate voted overwhelmingly with me. Nearly all of us lined up on one side of the chamber. On the other side of the chamber sat Senator David Leyonhjelm, and he could see from how few his company was on the other side of this vote that he was destined to lose this one.
Youll have to stop shagging men now, Sarah! he yelled at me as the vote went down, as if now Im at risk without pepper spray or a taser.
I heard the words a clear as a bell. They jolted me, which is of course what they were designed to do. But Ive heard these slurs before. This weekend marks 10 years that I have been in the federal parliament, and over this time the level of nastiness and personal attacks on the floor of the Senate chamber has gotten worse, not better.

Do we need to start posting examples where she is 100% wrong. Liberalism is insane no matter where it is.
“...violent crimes and behaviour that some men perpetuate...”
Wait, isn’t that gender profiling? We’re not allowed to talk about how race or religion correlate to violence, but, damn those men, they’re all so violent.
Psssst. I'm going to wager that just about every man has felt the same way at one time or another. It can be a scary world. But you know what? Owning a weapon and knowing how -- and when -- to use it properly makes it LESS scary, idiot. Especially for women, who are often outmatched physically by men.
And no man in Australia was EVER raped by a man because he was unarmed, eh Sheila???
Obviously far left.
Say now, Senator Leyonhjelm, I have an idea. Why not let women be “pro choice” about carrying a firearm for personal protection?
Yes these anti-guns types feel so much superior than the rest of us.
They would rather see a woman raped and strangled to death in an alley than using a gun to defend herself.
It’s actually Australia.
Professional MMA fighter Ronda Rousey, even at 5' 7" and 135 pounds, would probably beat most thugs, but highly-trained women like her are exceptionally rare. Women under the average female height of 5' 3"? They would have near zero chance unarmed. Give citizens such as my mother, my wife, or my daughters the firearm of their choice, and they are more than a match for a thug - in the case of my daughters several thugs.
Do I get brownie points for not reading the article before I comment on it?
She needs to ask all the girls and women who are beaten, raped and murdered by Asian, cough cough men.
Jane you ignorant slut!
Greens senator Sarah Hanson-Young charged taxpayers almost $4,000 to go whale watching with her 10-year-old daughter last year and has hit out at her critics in a television interview
Why are some women so obsessed by gender?
She’ll go back to rooting around with the boys.
