AUS: Activist Chanel Contos says school’s move to make male students apologise to females is ‘problematic’

Article here. Excerpt:

'Activist Chanel Contos has slammed a Victorian college’s attempt to address sexual assault in schools after male students as young as 12 were directed to “stand up and apologise” to their female peers.

Brauer College, in Warrnambool, held an assembly on Wednesday where the boys were told to stand in solidarity for female students who had experienced sexual harassment.

Outraged parents hit out at the move, saying it had left their sons “confused and upset” for apologising for something they “had not done”.

They said that their sons were told to apologise to girls for offensive behaviour on behalf of their gender.

“He’s upset by it – he now has this misconception that everybody looks at him and males as predators or somebody wishing to do harm to someone in a sexualised manner – seriously, he’s 12.”'
