The Era of Lies

James Doogue

Long gone are the days when you can simply accept what an academic, scientist or journalist might say as a simple reporting of the facts.

I wrote the above exactly a year ago. If anything it's more relevant today. The information the public have been getting about Covid-19 from academics, scientists and the media, (not to mention the government and the WHO), has been atrocious.

We are equally misinformed about the BLM 'protests' and black deaths in general. Climate change and power generation continue to be political rather than scientific issues.

In this instance last year, that first paragraph above, was motivated by WA's former Chief Scientist Lyn Beasley. She was quoting alleged gender pay statistics which, without qualification, were so misleading, they were outright lies.

Below I've cut and pasted what I wrote last year as a stark reminder that even the title of 'Chief Scientist' doesn't warrant your automatic respect and trust.

The Workplace Gender Equality Agency is a government funded feminist organisation which produces misleading statistics used as propoganda, designed to support their push for discrimination in the workplace. The discrimination is against men, in favour of women, and is dressed up as affirmative action, designed to make up for past wrongs against previous generations of women.

In a wide ranging presentation last night WA's former Chief Scientist Lyn Beasley, advocated for women in the workforce and a need to correct their financial positions, by showing this statistic in one of her slides:


The comes straight from the February 2019 report from the WGEA and relates to the claimed gender pay gap between men and women in Western Australia. The worst ranking state in Australia probably reflecting the high paid mining related jobs, often requiring fly-in, fly-out work conditions.

What Professor Beasley failed to point out, and what many people who use such statistics fail to make clear, is the accompanying note by WGEA about this statistic:

'The gender pay gap (GPG) is the difference between women’s and men’s average weekly full-time equivalent earnings, expressed as a percentage of men’s earnings. It is a measure of women’s overall position in the paid workforce and does not compare like roles.'

The WGEA also mention other factors which impact the gap including:
- women and men working in different industries and different jobs,
- women’s greater time out of the workforce

It is bad enough when a feminist activist, or a journalist quote statistics without clarification, leading to a misunderstandin g by the general public. It is worse when it comes from a scientist or academic. Unfortunately it happens all too often, and across all disciplines.

Long gone are the days when you can simply accept what an academic, scientist or journalist might say as a simple reporting of the facts.
