Social media, the commons and women

Rich Seager made this Official Information request to Julie Anne Genter

The request was successful.

From: Rich Seager

Dear Julie Anne Genter,

women (and allies) from this country are frequently being banned from social media platforms such as Twitter for simply expressing their understanding of biological science most especially in regard to homo sapien sapiens. They are also being abused on those platforms, their jobs and housing status threatened and not infrequently they are also threatened with violence.

As the minister of women do you have any plans to address these threats and intolerance on the part of those particular gender activists and their allies who are behind this abuse?

As these platforms are essentially part of the privatised commons are there any Government plans to remove these platforms from the private sphere and return this digital version of 'speakers corner' or the 'public hall' to NZ citizens?

Yours faithfully,
Rich Seager

Dear Stuart Baker,

ok thanks. This article may provide some context;

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opini...

Having Californian judges decide Canadian (or New Zealand law) is problematic in my view.

Please now include Andrew Little in this request, advising him of this article, and I advise that I am happy to receive responses from both or either Julie Anne Genter and Andrew Little.

Yours sincerely,

Rich Seager

Thank you for your request to the Minister for Women of 19 July 2019, made
under the Official Information Act 1982 as below:

 

Dear Julie Anne Genter,

 

women (and allies) from this country are frequently being banned from
social media platforms such as Twitter for simply expressing their
understanding of biological science most especially in regard to homo
sapien sapiens. They are also being abused on those platforms, their jobs
and housing status threatened and not infrequently they are also
threatened with violence.

 

As the minister of women do you have any plans to address these threats
and intolerance on the part of those particular gender activists and their
allies who are behind this abuse?

 

As these platforms are essentially part of the privatised commons are
there any Government plans to remove these platforms from the private
sphere and return this digital version of 'speakers corner' or the 'public
hall' to NZ citizens?

 

Yours faithfully,

Rich Seager

 

Under section 15A (b) of the OIA, an extension of five working days is
required to respond to your request, as consultations necessary to make a
decision on the request are such that a proper response to the request
cannot be made within the original time limit.

 

You will now receive a response no later than Friday 23 August 2019.  

 

Please accept my apologies for the delay.

 

You have the right under section 28 of the OIA to make a complaint to the
Ombudsman about the extension of time in responding to your request.

 

Ngā mihi,

Anna

Dear Anna MacLean, Julie Anne Genter & Andrew Little,

It's a disappointing response. As you undoubtedly understand that it is.

But not terribly surprising either.

Yours sincerely,

Rich Seager

P.S. I don't ascribe to Muldoon's 'improved the intelligence of both countries' re migration. I think it would be great to look at bringing some of the NZ talent that resides overseas home to attend to "climate change shock'. but you're not going to do that with someone else's dystopia..
