#StopBlamingWomenMakeMenTheIssue: Preethi Reddy

— Trigger Warning —

Last year, I read an article by Jane Gilmore, discussing that there was no national outrage or outcry, and little had been said in the media, about the fact that just the other week in Australia, six women were murdered in five days.

Yes.

Six women were murdered in five days.

As nothing has changed, I’m continuing with this same theme in 2019, and women murdered at the result of male violence will be featured on every Thursday post, as well as an entry from The Ex Files

I would also like to take this opportunity to note that during this time, White Ribbon has decided that it wants to be “agnostic” when it comes to women seeking safe and legal abortions. They recently, and very publicly, admitted that they were putting money before the lives of women. White Ribbon has always been problematic as fuck, but I want you to blow this shit open. As White Ribbon and Scott Morrison and our Australian government tries to backtrack for openly fucking women over in 2018 and publicly admitting money meant more to them than women’s health, I urge you to crucify and bury both. I urge you to show Australia, our PM, and our government that WOMEN’S RIGHTS FUCKING MATTER AND WE’RE SICK OF WOMEN DYING AND OUR GOVERNMENT DOING JACKSHIT.

As always, there will be hotline information at the bottom of the page, and you are always welcome to contact me on Facebook or DM me on my Instagram @thingscarlaloves if you need to talk to someone.

If you are aware that someone might be in danger, I implore you to please speak up. You may be wrong, but you may also save someone’s life.

Dr Preethi Reddy.

Doctor Preethi Reddy was a beautiful thirty-two-year-old dentist who had her whole life ahead of her before she vanished on a Sunday morning and turning up, brutally and horrifically murdered, before being stuffed into a suitcase and then callously dumping her dead body in the boot of her own car.

The alleged murderer of Doctor Preethi Reddy returned to Tamworth, where he was interviewed by police.

He had been Preethi’s on-and-off partner for five years, with their relationship – which was described as turbulent – beginning in 2013.

However, Preethi had ended her relationship with her ex, due to his jealousy, anger and control issues and their constant on-off status, and had begun dating a new boyfriend, starting a new life.

Soon after Preethi’s body was discovered by police, who had been searching for her for three days, Preethi’s ex-boyfriend, and alleged killer, died in a deliberate car accident, swerving into a vegetable truck driver (the truck driver, fortunately, survived the accident).

Preethi was terrified to see her ex-boyfriend, who she was meant to be seeing at a dental conference the next day, according to her friends.

Apparently, she had every reason to be terrified, as shortly after she attended the conference she was horrifically and violently murdered by a man who decided that if he couldn’t have her, no one could.

And yet, men get pissy when women say they’re afraid, but also want to know why we didn’t leave or didn’t report in the exact same breath.

Preethi was murdered by a cowardly man who wanted to ensure he caused maximum pain, and clearly did not care who was injured – mentally or physically – as he drove his car into an oncoming truck, risking anyone in the truck’s life.

Think of Preethi today, and how she was murdered because of a man’s feelings.

And then think about whether or not you had any right to get shitty with the Gillette Ad telling you exactly how the fuck it is.

Background

Bachelor of Education: English and History

Diploma in Criminology and Profiling

Diploma in Forensic Science

Background in law and psychology

Teacher 7+ years

Background in special needs, learning support – other specific teaching fields that required hands-on development.

NB: This is a declaration of the background of my personal knowledge, collected over the years via a professional form of education and development. Some of these take the form of actual degrees and others come in the form of necessary professional development. When doing your own research, you should always try and verify the person’s credibility. My credibility, nor anyone else’s, is not with their education. Everyone has biases and no one is infallible. I am deliberately including some of my background education to highlight this, because you should be questioning information you are receiving.

And if in doubt, please use CARS, because you’ve got to start learning what information to trust and why you’re trusting it. Also, if you want more sources than provided, fuck off and learn how to use Google.

CARS REFERENCING SYSTEM:

Credibility

Is the claim credible? Is the author writing biased? Is the author credible? An elite education doesn’t make someone more or less credible, so you often have to look beyond a person’s education background. 

Accuracy

Do the claims fit in to an accurate timeline? Do the claims made by the author reasonably stand up? If you’re seeing a lot of inaccuracies, especially against the timeline the person is creating, you need to consider if the claim is accurate. Context is often key.

Reasonableness

Mostly, this comes down to whether or not the person is clearly creating a bias. Obviously, everyone has biases. I try and declare mine at the bottom of every post that I think would benefit from extra sources. I freely admit that I definitely have biases, prejudices and will obviously write in a way that conveys what I believe is the truth. That doesn’t mean I’m always right – which is why reasonableness is so important. Everyone is biased, and it’s virtually impossible to not impose your belief, in some form, while sharing. But if the person is deliberately manipulating facts, or omitting information, then they are an untrustworthy source (here’s looking at you, Fox).

Support

Basically, this comes down to whether or not you can find “support” for the claims made. In anything professional, like an essay or journal article, references are essential. However, information can come from popular media sites, or from TV shows/movies, that might require YOU to do some work. I know that conservatives, in particular, seem to detest this as they seem to believe that the other person needs to do all the work, but that’s not how you actually learn. You learn by taking the information and researching it yourself. If you refuse to do this, which is an important part of the process, you will never truly progress in your own education. Out of everything here, I honestly believe this is the most important. If you are unwilling to research things on your own, and instead demand someone else to do the work for you, you have no interest in learning or understanding a different position. You are looking for confirmation bias.
