At the end of Parliament in Australia, December 2019, to an almost empty house, Pauline Hanson delivered a speech to help set the record straight about men and the value of masculinity.
It’s not often that the dedicated and hardworking men of this country collectively get a pat on the back, as they deserve, so I’d like to do that now.
Well done, men. You deserve to be honoured. I thank you.
It is more often that we lift up women in this country. Men are widely regarded as toxic. That is wrong. The extreme majority of men are not toxic. They are good, they are caring.Senator Hanson
We find it both heartwarming and a shameful reflection on current society that a politician is lauded both for congratulating men, and for being unusual in doing so.
