Sergeant Staffieri begs to differ

Victorian Policeman Faces Disciplinary Action for Saying ‘There Are Two Genders’

Political correctness has infected our law-keepers. It is now considered taboo to state the basic biological fact that humanity comes in two genders: male and female. Sergeant Staffieri should be commended for his courage in speaking up against the prevailing untrue narrative being foisted upon us all.

A Victorian policeman is under investigation for posting online that there are only two genders.

And so he should be!

Everyone knows there are actually three genders: Males (pronouns he/him), Females (pronouns she/her) and Narcissists (pronouns me!/me!/me!).

The Age reported this week that 62-year-old Sergeant Bruno Staffieri was interviewed by officers from Professional Standards Command over an online comment he made to an officer working in the Gender Equality and Inclusion Command.

Staffieri reportedly wrote:

“So you are doing tertiary education studying genders. I’ll make it easy for you to pass… there are 2.”

Someone call 000!


You have to hand it to Victoria Police; they know what constitutes inappropriate behaviour.

Shoot peaceful protestors with rubber bullets? No consequences.

Pepper spray law-abiding citizens? No consequences.

Harass old ladies sitting in a park during Covid lockdown? No consequences.

Slam people into the pavement for not wearing a mask? No consequences.

But if you dare to state a biological fact, everyone — from the Deputy Commissioner down — wets their pants.

Sergeant Staffieri should demand to know how many genders there are, so that he can be more accurate in future.

We’ll wait for the answer.

Oh, and if you’re the victim of an actual offence, you’ll have to wait too. Police are busy attending to thought crimes.


Staffieri, who has been an officer for more than 35 years and is close to retirement, could lose his job because of the online comments.

This is not the first time Staffieri has upset police command with views that, until five minutes ago, were entirely unremarkable.

Staffieri was also investigated over his public criticism of the government’s decision to cancel Australia Day and Anzac Day celebrations last year, but allow the Gay Pride March in St Kilda to proceed.

“So the next time Australians are sent out to fight a war, maybe we can send out the 8000 that marched today… and try to stop the enemy by waving feathers and brightly coloured boas at them,” Staffieri reportedly posted on May 17, 2021.

“Triple 0. What’s your emergency?”

“Sergent Staffieri objected to the Mardi Gras.”

“Does anyone need help?”

“Yes. We are all very hurty.”

“Does Sergeant Staffieri have a weapon?”

“It’s his words. His words! Words are violence. ”

“Stay in a safe space and practice socially distancing until a squad car full of thought police arrives.”


In June last year, Victoria Police Deputy Commissioner Neil Paterson posted on Yammer, the force’s internal communication platform, that:

 “Victoria Police is proud to have been recognised as a silver employer at the 2021 Australian LGBTQ+ inclusion awards.”

Staffieri reportedly responded by posting:

“Yes, I agree. Great achievement. But if the public knew how much time, effort and taxpayer dollars went into this, they would also be demanding why we didn’t get a gold.”

That’s pretty funny.

Paterson didn’t think so. He defended the campaign and denied it had received significant public funding.

Staffieri responded:

“Sir, I totally value and respect your opinion and your rank, I simply ask that you value and respect mine.”

Paterson fired back at Staffieri …

“I don’t respect or value your views as they are offensive and there is no place for those views in Victoria Police… Either limit your comments on Yammer to comments that are respectful of everyone or consider your employment options.”

So in Daniel Andrews’ Victoria, it’s an honest police officer who tells the truth who is threatened with the sack for having what police hierarchy call “those views”.

Maybe, if Sergeant Staffieri flies the Chinese flag outside his station, all will be forgiven.

    I so wish that Paterson could be dealt with as the heretic he is, and dealt with the old fashioned way.
