The weekend just gone.

Due to my recent redundancy, from there project work I usually perform as a tradesman, I had the opportunity to visit Brisbane and be a part of the only unhindered screening of Cassie Jaye’s Red Pill documentary in Australia so far.

For all of you that haven’t had the opportunity to view this one, I’m going to offer my unqualified recommendation.

It is thought provoking, revealing of both sides of the debate, as much as the selected groups had their edited opportunity to speak and in my opinion it offers an opening, with our common cultures, into this scene that the average punter may not not usually get to find.

I would like to view the documentary a couple of times over in order to offer a more thorough review but as this is something that is happening all over the world at the moment, I think we can hold off for a wee while and get back to it at a later date.

That said, I believe that would be a worth while analysis even if it is after the fact.

I’m going to wait until I have the the chance to see this effort again before discerning its influence and defining and critiquing its arguments until a later date but I’ll leave with offering my sentiments about this film.

If you have the chance to view this movie, do it.

If there are protests around the viewing of this film, where you have the opportunity to see it, brave that snot and go along and get amongst it, the opposition will only make it more worthwhile.

The Q&A session we were offered after the viewing, with Tom Golden and Paul Elam added another dimension to the discussion and rounded out the effort of the group, Men’s Rights Brisbane, who organised this effort successfully and it served its purpose well.

This Q&A session is available here.

It’s late here and I would like to add more but for the time being I think this enough. The effort that Cassie has put into this film and her supporters will go on to develop the cultural situation between the genders and offer all of us the basis to develop our position a better grounding of our understanding of this factor in our civilisation.
