Unapologetic Leyonhjelm lashes out at Turnbull and media over Hanson-Young slurs.

An unapologetic David Leyonhjelm has lashed out at the Prime Minister and the media as he refuses to back down in the face of overwhelming condemnation over his remarks about fellow senator Sarah Hanson-Young.

The week-long controversy, which began when Senator Leyonhjelm told Senator Hanson-Young to "stop shagging men" during a debate about violence against women, has brought the Parliament's reputation into disrepute amid claims of long-running "slut-shaming".

Minister for Women Kelly O'Dwyer added her voice to the calls for Senator Leyonhjelm to apologise, telling Fairfax Media: "People have a right to be treated with dignity and respect in their workplaces. An apology is clearly in order for the comments made."

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said it was "not too late" for Senator Leyonhjelm to make up for the "offensive" remarks, which were unlike anything he had heard in the Parliament previously.

"That type of language has no place in Parliament, it shouldn't have a place in any workplace," Mr Turnbull said. "Respect for women in particular is one of the highest priorities that we should be focused on."

Senator Hanson-Young on Tuesday revealed she had been plagued "for years" by sexist comments about her sex life which began as corridor chatter and had descended into Senator Leyonhjelm's public commentary at the weekend in interviews on Sky and 3AW radio.

"For years I have ignored it and pretended that it would just go away, pretended that it wasn’t impacting on me, that I couldn't hear the comments," the 36-year-old mother said.

"I’m over it, I’m absolutely over it. From here on, when it happens, I’m calling it out.

"Sexist comments and slurs are used to intimidate and to bully. They're used to silence women, and if you stay silent you let them win. I'm not going to let him win."

Senator Hanson-Young called on women and men in all workplaces to stand up against sexism and slurs because "inflicted silence is the weapon, intimidation is the weapon".

In response, Senator Leyonhjelm denied he had engaged in "slut-shaming", accused Senator Hanson-Young of grandstanding and lashed out at Mr Turnbull and the media for what he said was their failure to understand misandry, the hatred of men.

He denied using the controversy to boost his profile ahead of the next election - at which it is likely Senator Leyonhjelm will lose his seat - arguing Senator Hanson-Young had put his comments on the public record.

"Absolutely she’s grandstanding. She loves playing the victim, it’s about the only thing she’s good at," he told Fairfax Media.

Senator Leyonhjelm also described the PM as a "p---y" and a "soft c--k" for failing to speak about misandry as well as misogyny, and accused journalists of "groupthink" on sexism.

"I don’t think the media knew what misandry was until I started talking about it," he said.

"It’s actually a little bit shocking there seems to be this groupthink among the media that sexism is only a thing when it comes to men in relation to women.

"It’s a bit like this idea that racism is only a thing by white people, that homophobia is only a thing by straight people. And yet we know that gays and trans, they argue amongst themselves like crazy."

Senator Leyonhjelm said he would not respond to a legal letter from Kennedys law firm on behalf of Senator Hanson-Young. The letter, seen by Fairfax Media, alleges Senator Leyonhjelm's comments contained "false and defamatory imputations" that have caused "significant harm". It pledged a concerns notice would be issued in coming days.

"Absolutely she’s grandstanding. She loves playing the victim, it’s about the only thing she’s good at," he told Fairfax Media.

That is the SJW way, play the victim, scream abuse at anyone who doesn't play along with their garbage, make a mountain out of a molehill, brainwash the gullible, and lie to the rest of us - and our PM has been sucked in by this lefty charade. http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/rolleyes.gif

By claiming "Slut Shaming", she is actually calling herself a slut.
Now that takes a lack of brains.

Quite apart from any other considerations, Senator Leyonhjelm didn’t appear to be very senator like in topic or language. Senator Hanson-Young is said to have blamed all men for rapes, as we know that is ridiculous, all men are not rapists. Neither person behaved as we expect our Senators to behave, simple manners are not that hard. http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/rolleyes.gif https://s20.postimg.cc/x68t0lwf1/1120275_KASPa_Hdl.gif http://fairdinkumnewschat.b1.jcink.com/uploads/fairdinkumnewschat/lbill.gif
