In a letter to the editor published across South Australia, Conservative Party South Australian Senate candidate Rikki Lambert writes:
"Gillette’s reboot of ‘the best a man can get’ was cheered on by radicals as a lethal strike on ‘toxic masculinity’.
Is there also ‘toxic femininity’?
Bullying, shaming, sexualisation and harm certainly don’t originate solely from men.
Behaviour improves because it is respectful and right, not because it suits the latest socialist experiment.
Will chivalry – like opening a door for a lady, or giving up your seat for her – be branded ‘toxic’ or offensive ‘male privilege’?
Will you be allowed to be a mum or dad in the ways of your beloved parent, or even say ‘boys will be boys’, ‘bloke’ or even call a child ‘boy’?
As radicals push ‘masculinity’ as a mental illness, blokes in men’s sheds go grey or bald with confusion. ‘Toxic masculinity’ is another front in the culture war on gender itself.
We can’t bring back common sense fast enough."
