Media release: Fathers call on Kiro to resign
"Fathers' groups are demanding the resignation of Children's Commissioner Cindy Kiro ", Kerry Bevin spokesperson, for the Men’s Coalition said today, following Kiro's praise of Air New Zealand's and Qantas's policies of not allowing men to sit next to unaccompanied children. He also called for a public apology from the airlines in question.
"Kiro is telling our children that men are dangerous to children, when in actual fact both women and men abuse children."
"She is teaching our children that irrational fear and hysterical hatred of one half of the population is acceptable."
"Kiro is not fit to be the Children's Commissioner and must resign immediately", concluded Kerry.
