    Apparently 10% of staff have witnessed or heard about a sexual assault. There is a rather large difference between witnessed and heard about. Given only 2% are claimed to have suffered an actual or attempted sexual assault, for 10% to have witnessed one, there must be a lot of watchers in parliament house.

    If though, the vast majority of this 10% merely heard about it on the grapevine, there must be a lot of gossips.

    How many of the 2% were actual sexual assaults? Rolling up bullying with sexual assault in the same article, doesn’t that trivialise sexual assault?

    Perhaps a more meaningful set of stats would be helpful?

    Percentage of workforce that participated in the ‘survey’: 27.7 per cent.

    Yet another Elizabeth Broderick special.

    Clearly just an assault on the Perrottet government. The SFLs will have to deal with this garbage for the next few weeks. You won’t find such a survey in a Labor ruled parliament.

    Anyway, I couldn’t care less. The SFLs bring this sort of shit on themselves by being such girly-men.

    I’d like to see the definition of sexual assault used in the survey.
    My gut feeling is that aggressive, physical assault is not the definition – that looking, insinuating, suggesting and touching are significant components of the meaning of sexual assault in 2022.
    If so, that minimises the importance of the results being reported.

    I wonder how many of the 2% were down to Luke Foley?

    I tend to think that these sort of surveys or studies are set up in order to prove what is a predetermined conclusion; in this case that sexual offences are, if not rampant, at least well above that of society in general level.
    Like the infamous, self-contributing university survey several years ago.
    And no, flirting with or looking at a pretty girl (or even an ugly one!) is not a sex crime or offence.

    Did a certain minister prominent in the media rate a mention? Plenty of stories about him and his texting made the SMH about 2 years ago. I’m sure he’d be feeling a bit green around the gills at the concept of this report

    It turns out that one of the worst (but non-sexual) bullies was from the ALP. Who would have thought? Another noxious North American import, he is now pleading as an excuse his traumatic mixed-race, part ‘First Nations’ upbringing in Canada – i.e. WAAAAAYCIST!

    Mind you, Leigh Sales let slip on election night that she and other ABC ‘journalists’ had been approached by plenty of former ALP staff with their own MeToo stories. Needless to say, the ABC produced not one word of reporting on any of them.
