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.

The Mullumbimby Giants signalled their intent last Sunday in front of a home crowd by beating the Casino Cougars 24–16.

In the five-tries-to-three triumph, Thomas Sowerby and Dean Rooney both scored two for the locals, and Mason Davies went over as well. Brett Kelly-Wirth converted two.

The win follows a 10–10 draw last week when the Giants travelled to Kyogle to take on the Turkeys.

The win leaves the Giants in fourth spot on the ladder after six rounds. 

The win was welcomed by a home crowd that watched the Giants lose the earlier encounters on the day.

In the Ladies Touch, Casino won 24–4, in the 18s the visitors dominated 26–4, and in reserve grade they ran out winners 40–6.

This weekend the teams travel to Kingsford Smith Park to take on the Ballina Seagulls, with the action kicking off at 10.10am for the LLT, before the first-grade game at 2.45pm.

The Seagulls sit on top of the first-grade ladder and haven’t lost a game this year. 

Sunday they travel to Ballina to take on the competition leaders from 2.45pm.
