“Systemic bullying, hazing and abuse generally are identified with poor, weak or toxic organizational cultures. Cultures that are toxic have stated ethical values that are espoused but not employed, and other non-ethical values which are operational, dominant, but unstated.

Such cultures thrive when good people are silent, silenced, or pushed out; when bad apples are vocal, retained, promoted, and empowered; and when the neutral majority remain silent in order to survive. Those who are most successful in such a toxic culture are those who have adapted to it, or adopted it as their own”. (McKay, Arnold, Fratzl & Thomas, 2008)

University of Newcastle - steam/water/sex/sugar daddy?

The student who earned money via a sex show continues to be in the news - she was counselled whilst those members of staff who sexually harassed students remain employed.

"Steamy:The Newcastle Herald reports that a Newcastle University student has been counselled after using the library to film a pay per view sex show of herself. “Parts of the library were ordered to be steam cleaned after the incident,” the paper reports. It must have been some show."

Is she still permitted to continue studying at the university?

Are those members of staff who sexually harassed student still allowed to work at the university?

Of course they are, along with academics who committed other forms of misconduct.  They are protected by all levels of Newcastle University management right to the top.

  1. Sociopaths show a distinct lack of remorse for their actions.

    Let's hear the words of the dean of students who is a minister of faith about the moral implications of making pornography and self objectification.

    She is a moral woman. This would be a great opportunity to spread the moral enriching words of faith and God etc.. that she has devoted her life to.

    1. Didn't think she'd say anything and I was right.

  2. The incident has been reported worldwide. The whole world now knows about the University of Newcastle.

    The internet and a lack any sustained personal interaction has allowed a woman of academic potential to become a whore.

    The same technology and style of education the University is swearing will be the future.

    Yet the University wants to be a global leader and be a disruptive innovator. Now they are.

    They don't like the fact she made the headlines before they did. They are going to punish the woman who actually did make the University a global leader and did it using disruptive innovation.

    Her achievements have far eclipsed any of her peers. Why? Because they have noticed them from New York to London and Singapore. Have you actually read about the University of Newcastle other achievements (other than bullying or plagiarism) in an overseas newspaper? I think not.

    Because she has adopted the culture more wholistically than the staff they have the gall to suguest she is against University principle.

    What she has exposed is that a home made sex video is the greatest achievement of this University. Try comparing that to another University.

    The new motto for UoN is simple.

    Go fuck yourself.

  4. Very well-said dear Anonymous. Obviously you knows the culture very well right there and what's happening in that hellhole. The worst place to study and live at. I'm afraid to say that the experience at uon has dramatically affected every aspect of my life in a significantly negative way. I'ddarely say that studying at uon could be one of the most terrible nightmare experiences of your whole life that could be with you for the rest of your life (an highly unpleasant souvenir from there was a damaged self-esteem and an destroyed dignity and this is just the least of what I should carry with me until I get really old).
    MY experience with these people at this so-called academic environment testifies that it could be the worst of the worst of your experiences in academia both, as a student and/or staff there. It will take ages to get rid of the horrible dramatic experiences which had occurred and is continuing to happen there...
    Should be somehow exposed or the hellhole should be closed off as soon as practicable if possible at all, after all the budget that Australian government injects there.. Shame on them. Wouldn't call some of the senior executives working there as moral/ethical human beings..

    1. I am trying very hard to erase the damage and demoralisation that has been inflicted on me.. I am glad for your solidarity.

      They can lie and lie all they want. What they will never escape is the silent truth that pervades all matters.

      I don't want to be a whore. I don't want to drink John G's kool aid either. I wanted my own soul and I wanted to keep it. That is why they tried to destroy me.

      They almost succeeded. My life is in tatters. I tried to end my life twice, I have a sleep disorder, depression which borders into psychosis. I am medicated to the hilt so the last few remaining joys left to me are distorted badly.

      All I wanted was a fair go. They are marketing the place as a "place of opportunity".

      The so called excellency of the faculty that bullied me into the ground is now focusing on circus studies and popular entertainment. Helmed by a sociopath who takes delight in destruction.

      My question is, I am not the only one am I? There are many other stories just like mine and sooner or later people will want to hear them.
      Why? Because they are the truth.

    2. There is an abundance of information in our age, yet increasingly scarce moral guidance. The staff are morally deficient.
