Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Why are we so blasé about violent pornography?

Why is it a turn on to hurt us? Recent intersectional studies have shown that online misogyny and violent pornography are contributors to a sharp rise in domestic violence. In NSW alone, police attend 500 incidents every day. If there were 500 threats or incidents at banks, or to the government, we would be in a state of emergency. Instead we stop, shake our heads, we listen to good men in government speak empty words, make a few promises, and move on. If you’ve ever lived through violence, it’s pretty well what your abuser does after hitting you.

Byron Bay remain undefeated after four games, and sit on top of the Coastal League competition after beating Bangalow last Saturday at the Cavanbah Centre.

Bangalow batted first after Byron won the toss and scored 5/196 off their allotted 40 overs. C Bensley top scored with 39, with M Irwin (33) and R Jacob (32) were also among the runs. S Daniels finished with 2/28 off seven overs.

Byron chased down the total, with six overs to spare, on the back of an opening stand of 117. Opener T McGeorge top scored with 91 runs, supported by S Daniels (30) and L Trisley (27).

S Singh was Bangalow’s best bowler with 2/24 off eight overs.

The win puts Byron at the top of the competition table with three wins and 28 points, ahead of Terranora (18), Bangalow (16), Tintenbar East Ballina (15) and Lennox Head (13).

In the LJ Hooker League, Cudgen sits on the top of the table with 27 points leading Lennox Head (25), Goonellebah Workers Sports (22) and Tintenbar East Ballina (21).

  1. Cricket: My playing days were very short lived. The captain posted me to 3rd man, as a 12yo I was chuffed to be referred to as a man, I asked him who was Number 1 & 2. It was rather lonely down on the boundary, so I nipped over the fence and grabbed a pillow and a surfing mag.
