Not that we needed Davina to say anything but she makes some great points, for whatever reason the modern day feminist types decided to go after her by suggesting that she is taking the spotlight away from the Sarah Everard’s murder.
Things have been relatively quiet, apart from young teenage boys getting stabbed you wouldn’t have heard about that because feminists don’t give a damn about children getting knifed to death or young girls getting groomed by asian men oops I meant men.
Selective outrage the 21st century progress we’ve always wanted! Full post from the Birmingham Live website below…
Davina McCall has faced criticism on social media for a tweet she has posted in response to the Sarah Everard case.
Ms Everard went missing from London in a story which has sparked conversations about the safety of women.
The Masked Singer judge Davina has been hit by a backlash after a tweet she posted on Friday, as vigils for Sarah are held nationwide.
Davina wrote: “Female abduction / murder is extremely rare. Yes we should all be vigilant when out alone. But this level of fear-mongering isn’t healthy. And men’s mental health is an issue as well. Calling all men out as dangerous is bad for our sons, brothers, partners.”
She followed it up by replying to a follower: “I wouldn’t walk home alone in the dark. And lots of men I know wouldn’t either… because there are some ( very few relatively ) bad people out there. But your response is say you view all men as a danger and I don’t think we should be spreading that message.”
“Can you point out which ones it is then, because it might not be all men, but until we know which ones it is(often too late) we need to be wary of all of them,” another wrote.
Davina replied, calling the response “very sad”, while another fumed: “why do we have to be so wary of hurting men’s feelings when this is about the violence towards women. of course it isn’t all men but it’s so common and how do we know which men are safe and which aren’t?”
Another commented: “Disappointed in this warping of the narrative @ThisisDavina. Of course abduction/murder is rare. 97% of women have been sexually harassed. It might be only 0.1% of men putting a long shift in but we don’t keep a shared list of them. So how do we know who is dangerous?”
And another wrote: “It isn’t extremely rare though. I don’t think 2 women dying a week JUST from DV is rare.
“That doesn’t even count the stranger murder/kidnaps/assaults.
“It’s not ALL men, but it’s almost ALL women so surely that’s enough. No men bashing here, we need them to fight the good fight”
And another said: “we’re not only talking about being murdered by a stranger. we’re discussing everything that contributes to a culture where that happens. everyday misogyny, catcalling, domestic abuse, victim blaming, the majority of rapists who never see court. nobody is saying all men. I think this misses this point.
“A woman being killed is a reminder to women of the (very real!) danger they face. 2 women a week die from DV, almost all women experience sexual assault or harrassment once or several times in a life. to frame that as a male MH issue is a reach”
It comes as Home Secretary Priti Patel has sought to reassure the public over the integrity and dedication of police after the arrest of a serving officer on suspicion of Sarah Everard’s murder.
Scotland Yard is facing an investigation by the police watchdog into its handling of an allegation of indecent exposure involving the suspect in the Sarah Everard case.
