Feminists Win as Australian Man Pleads Guilty in Facebook Harassment Case

Posted on | June 25, 2016 | 25 Comments


Zane Alchin, 25, may go to prison for making rape jokes on Facebook. The Australian man pleaded guilty Monday to “using a carrier service to menace, harass, or cause offence” in a case that began with a hiphop lyric.

It started last August when a 23-year-old Sydney woman, Olivia Melville, signed up for the dating app Tinder and decided to use as her profile bio a line from a song by Drake: “Type of girl that will suck you dry and then eat some lunch with you.” This caught the attention of Chris Hall, a 25-year-old bartender who took a screenshot of Melville’s profile and posted it to his Facebook page with the remark: “Stay classy ladies. I’m surprised she’d still be hungry for lunch.” Then the trouble started.


Melville posted Hall’s comment to her own page and began to argue with him about it, with her friends joining in on her side, and Hall’s friends taking his side. It was a rather typical Internet kerfuffle about the issue of “slut-shaming,” until Hall’s friend Zane Alchin joined in. “You know the best thing about a feminist they don’t get any action so when you rape them it feels 100 times tighter,” was one of Alchin’s comments which, as offensive as it may be, could not legally be considered a threat, because it was a generic statement not directed toward any individual. However, to one of Melville’s friends, Paloma Brierley Newton, Alchin said, “I’d rape you if you were better looking but I wouldn’t f– you a nimbus,” whatever that’s supposed to mean. (Alchin claims he was drunk at the time.) Brierley Newton said in response: “If you keep threatening me with rape, I will go to the police. I have all of this screen shotted, you are currently breaking the law.” And evidently, she wasn’t kidding.

Zane Alchin’s abusive comments were the subject of a post in which Brierley Newtown seemed eager to appoint herself Facebook commissar:

I want to take a moment to talk about sexual violence and harassment. . . .
This kind of behaviour is what we call ‘normalisation of violence against women’ and it is really really scary and damaging, it is the reason that every day our mothers, our sisters and our friends are killed by men, and raped by men. . . .
I’ll also be taking these pictures to the police, be warned men, the internet is not longer your invisibility cloak. I am coming after you and I will not be stopped.

There you have it: Facebook causes rape and murder. The world was an edenic paradise until Mark Zuckerberg invented Facebook in 2004, and then violence against women was normalized because . . . harassment.

Can we talk about that word, “harassment”? Because in recent years, feminists have expanded the definition of “harassment” to the point it apparently means disagreeing with a feminist on the Internet.

In February, my popular @rsmccain Twitter account was suspended for “participating in targeted abuse,” although Twitter officials have refused to say (a) what this allegedly “abuse” included, (b) who was allegedly “targeted,” or (c) how I allegedly “participated” in this. The double standard is glaring. ISIS-supporting radical Muslims can have Twitter accounts, but if you support #GamerGate or call a feminist a “totalitarian,” the commissars will send you to the Twitter gulag.


The concept of “participating targeted abuse” is about collective guilt, where one person claims to be a victim (they were “targeted”) and then anyone who said mean things about them on Twitter (or retweeted other people’s negative comments) can be condemned as “participating,” without regard for whether any specific thing they said was otherwise in violation of Twitter policy. Alleged pedophile Nicholas Edward “Sarah” Nyberg has repeatedly succeed in getting his/“her” critics suspended from Twitter, where the “trust and safety” policies are used to protect certain people from factual criticism.


As the forces of Cultural Marxism increasingly expand the list of Things You Are Not Allowed to Say, they thereby incentivize the third-grade tattletale mentality: “You said a dirty word! I’m telling teacher!”

Every synonym for “promiscuous woman” — slut, tramp, harlot, etc. — is effectively banned from usage by politically correct standards, even when feminists are publicly boasting about their herpes infections.

“I am able to embrace my herpes positive status. . . .
“I have no shame in who I am. . . .
“I have sex, great sex. I write about sex. I talk openly about sex.”

Emily Depasse, April 18, 2016

Feminists are attempting to impose a speech code that amounts to a commandment: “Thou shalt never criticize a woman for anything.”


Paloma Brierley Newton is a Shameless Slut — she’s selling T-shirts with that message to promote her group “Sexual Violence Won’t Be Silenced.” She is a graduate student who got her college degree in photography, but now “plans to complete a Masters of Humanitarian and Social Justice law,” which is actually a degree offered by the University of New South Wales in Sydney. Not only is Brierley Newton willing to advertise her own habitual promiscuity, but she encourages others to do likewise.

Some might say Paloma Brierly Newton has a “reprobate mind,” and is among those “filled with all unrighteousness, fornication . . . boasters, inventors of evil things . . . implacable, unmerciful.” This is the woman who declares “be warned men . . . I am coming after you and I will not be stopped.” And by reporting Zane Alchin to police, Paloma Brierly Newton has turned herself into a feminist celebrity in Australia.


All because Zane Alchin is an idiot who posted rude things on Facebook.


No one would ever accuse me of playing “white knight” for feminists, nor am I volunteering for the Internet Civility Patrol, but young guys have got to learn to stop handing feminists easy victories like this.  Chris Hall’s original Facebook post — with the screenshot of Olivia Melville’s Tinder profile and the sarcastic remark, “Stay classy ladies. I’m surprised she’d still be hungry for lunch” — was entirely appropriate, a simple point-and-laugh gesture. However, Zane Alchin had to prove himself to be The Reason We Can’t Have Nice Things, the guy who starts digging a hole with indefensibly crude remarks and, when his bad behavior causes problems, he decides to disregard Healey’s First Law of Holes and keep on digging. This is how you become Bill Schmalfeldt, basically.

Don’t be that guy whose obscenity-strewn semi-literate comments give feminists like Clementine Ford an excuse for a “rape culture” lecture:

This is what rape culture looks like. This is what cyber sexual violence looks like. This is what a f–king creep who needs to be reported to the police looks like.
The internet is a battleground for women. People need to be aware of exactly how bad it is, and protest it. This sh– is not funny. It’s not a light hearted joke. It’s not meaningless. Men, if you find it funny to joke about raping women you better be prepared for a lot of women to think you’re actually a rapist. Don’t cry foul about ‘feminazis’ when you’re the reason feminism is still so f–king necessary you disgusting, mouth breathing troglodytes.

You cannot fight feminism effectively by handing them fodder for their anti-male propaganda campaigns. Stop being stupid, guys.

    Feminists who troll the internet looking for someone to make a single misstep so they can become judge, jury and executioner are vastly worse than the alleged perpetrator. If you can’t tell the difference between an actual, real threat and someone being a jackass, then you are a humorless idiot. I can tell the difference.

    And frankly, it’s alarming that anyone would clog up the justice system with this type of idiocy. The very officials that took reports, investigated, prepared legal documents, and went to court would have been better used in fighting actual crime, than wasting time and taxpayer money on what amounts to kindergarten name-calling, because the alleged “victim” is too weak to handle the situation herself.

    The virtue signaling and ego stroking by this Newtown woman offends me. It’s times like this that I’m embarrassed to be a woman. It also offends me that I’m forced to side with a jackass because the so-called “victim” is so vile.

    Two things:
    1. Facebook is public space, not private. When a young agnostic was fired from a Catholic school a number of years ago because she posted an article on atheism (and her students found it), it underlined the fact that Facebook is public and not like chatting with friends. All users should remember that. Don’t say anything on Facebook that you wouldn’t say in front of your boss at work.

    2. Alchin did not actually threaten anyone with rape. He made rape comments but the intent to actually do actual physical harm was not there. He was trying to win a verbal battle. In our current time the lines have been blurred between actual threats and use of offensive language. While I agree that men should stop handing feminists easy victories, this case shouldn’t be one.

    I wouldn’t call the internet a feminist “battle ground”. More like a hunting ground where they prowl waiting for the stupid and the slow to expose themselves to attack and being devoured.

    Otherwise your message is right on. You can’t joke with a feminist and you never know when you are when you’re online.

    And jokes about rape and other such acts should only be done in person and with people you know will get the joke.

    As Stacy has said, they’re on the prowl and they’re looking for scalps. Don’t give them an easy shot at yours.

    I make $0.98 per DAY, YouTubing Shirley as she sits in my escape-proof basement. She is chained to the cinder-block wall with seriously heavy restraint screws, and I feed her occasional gruel, and give her a water bowl to lap out of.

    24 hrs per day live feed.

    However, I’m just not making enough moolah from this! The server fees are incredible, and I thought that I was going to make a motzah!

    PLEASE join with #IhavechainedShirleyBrowninmybasement so that I can get some extra eyeballs, and more income.

    1. Has anything good ever come from Facebook?
    2. Thank God for the First Amendment.
    3. If you’re a shameless slut, the whole world already knows it, so…
    4. Those t-shirts are going to end up on third world disaster victims when they don’t sell here (which they won’t). Can’t wait for the picture of some illiterate old dude wearing one of those after the next tsunami/earthquake/flood…
    5. There’s nothing funny about rape so stop trying to be the first person to make a funny rape joke. If you think you’ve stumbled upon the first actually funny rape joke, insert the name of your Mom/wife/sister/daughter…if you still think it’s funny, have your head examined by a qualified professional…and if that person agrees that it’s funny, sue them for malpractice.
    6. Thank God for the First Amendment…because you can’t thank God enough for the First Amendment.
