    taken from here: Women win right to ban men from dance parties | Herald Sun

    EXCLUSIVE: A PARTY company specialising in dances for lesbians and bisexual women has won the legal right to ban men.
    Pinkalicious was given the green light to stop men because they might pester women for sex.
    Director Julie MacKenzie hailed the VCAT decision a landmark, saying it made Pinkalicious the only women-only party in Australia.
    Ms MacKenzie complained to the tribunal she couldn't stop men attending the parties "even if I know they intend to hit on women".
    Fellow organiser Samantha Stevens argued men should be banned because they would be intimidating and deter lesbian and bisexual patrons.

    "In my experience feminine lesbians are often the target of heterosexual male fantasy, and therefore subject to more intrusive attention from them," Ms Stevens said. "It is a major concern that heterosexual males will attend the Pinkalicious event in the hope they can achieve their desire for a sexual experience with multiple women."
    VCAT ruled in favour of Pinkalicious this month, with Judge Marilyn Harbison noting no objections were raised after the proposed man ban was advertised.
    But Men's Rights Agency director Sue Price slammed the ruling.
    She said it contradicted Attorney-General Rob Hulls' move to open up elite men's venues, including the Melbourne and Athenaeum clubs, to women.
    In May, Mr Hulls slammed private men's clubs as "a throwback to a bygone era" and said he wanted them to lose their exemption to anti-discrimination laws.
    Ms Price said Pinkalicious was given special treatment.
    "I get enormously angry about the laws," she said.
    Ms MacKenzie was thrilled with the man ban.
    "We are ecstatic about it," she said.
    "The feedback I was getting from the girls was that they wanted something exclusive for women to be able to express themselves in a safe environment."
    The Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission backed the ban.
    "The Commission supports the type of events run by Pinkalicious because they offer a disadvantaged group the chance to experience supportive social occasions, feel safe in public spaces and build a sense of belonging," Commission CEO Dr Helen Szoke said.
    VCAT has given gay men's pubs, including the Laird Hotel and the Peel Hotel, permission to ban women.





    whats your take on this? political correctness gone wrong or a fair outcome?

    I'd want to be the only man behind the cocktail bar in that establishment.

    Women are insecure and can't say no, it's for their protection.

      It's always interesting looking at the ramifications of decisions like this. On face value they are fair enough, but when you look at the bigger picture, it all goes horribly wrong.

      Discrimination is still discrimination, doesn't matter how hot the lesbian is who it is coming from.

        Plenty of men only clubs, noone gets all pompous and agro about them, I can see where they are coming from, and why would you want to go hang out with a bunch of women who don't want you there?

        I couldn't care less. This doesn't do anything to diminish my ability to go out and have fun.

          resist: but people do get all agro about them. There have been feminists trying to force their way into mens only clubs for years, yet support female only clubs.

          That's the whole point.

                  As long as we get to cane the men that rock up it should be fine, I mean it's our right to ignore the laws of our locale right?

                    It's our right to fight the laws of our locale, and its our right to fight the laws in other locales that are unjust. That's what foriegn diplomats are for. The Australian consulate should petition other countries with broken laws.

                      Why take a step back to quasi-democracy?

                            Why be cryptic and hide behind that? At least I'm forthright, what's this hypothesis?
