URGENT : Precedents for Custody Retrials

Filed under: General — sharingiscaring @ 12:53 pm

Just found out that at 0900 tomorrow morning I must represent myself in an Urgent Application for the retrial of my Children’s Custody Trial which took place last week.

All my statements and that of my eight witnesses were disallowed* by the Court so a very one sided custody trial took place. Only the mothers evidence was heard and only her witnesses were heard.

Does anyone know of any precedents for retrials thank you?

Please help.
Sharing is Caring

* they won an application that all our evidence must be resubmitted and my lawyer neglected to mention it until the deadline had passed.

Re: Mental Health Foundation release regarding increased suicide numbers, and your interview on Radio NZ’s Checkpoint on 6/10/2015

While we acknowledge the Mental Health Foundation’s efforts to be helpful in its public statements about suicide in light of this year’s significant increase in deaths from suicide to the highest rate since annual coronial figures were kept, we have a number of questions as follows. (more…)

Morality and Law

Filed under: General — triassic @ 9:00 pm

If a woman is fighting off a rapist, should she be able to use maximum force and take his life to defend herself? i.e. Shoot, knife or bludgeon him.

If a man finds his partner has fallen pregnant to him and he decides he no longer wishes to proceed with the birth of that potential child, should he be able to use maximum force to terminate the pregnancy within the 24 week legal period? i.e. Force her to swallow the morning after pill to deal with a zygot. Punch her in the stomach severely enough to induce a miscarriage. Drug her to sleep and perform an abortion on her himself.

As you read the above you may notice that #1 tends to sound a reasonable request due to the fact that we tend to see a rapist as a sexual predator. i.e. A scum bag who just takes what he wants without consent and shows a total lack of respect for the female.

Reading #2 may make you feel a bit queemish as it entails both violence and forcing your decision upon the female. However, if you have a think about the 2 scenarios and juxtpose #2 with the actions in #1 you may discover why some men have gone down this path in order to escape a nightmare. Both actions are immoral but the law gives some protection in only one scenario.

Within the womb of the woman in #2 lies the male’s gene. Where and at what point did she obtain the right to claim that for her own? Why should the male not have a right to the destiny of his gene equal to that of the female? Not only does he lose his seed to her unwillingly but also has to endure 2 decades of financial burden in order to give her the pleasure in bringing up his seed as she sees fit.(thanks to the FC) The law leaves the male with a horrible choice in #2.

A reality check….. Leave a female without the right to have food and water and rest assure she will break the law and steal to survive. Leave a male without rights to his gene and he will break the law to survive. Logic at work of course.

‘Lorde’ just another man-hating bitch

Filed under: Domestic Violence,Gender Politics,General — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 8:50 am

For those men like us who have celebrated Lorde’s spectacular rise to fame and fortune, consider her latest music video. It shows her exchanging ‘love at first sight’ glances with a man who is already partnered, then running into his arms to be sexual with him behind the partner’s back, then at the end of the video she has him tied to a chair, kicks him into a swimming pool with inflammable liquid on it and lights the liquid to burn the man to death.

Helen Clarke chairs plan to censor internet to prevent anyone hurting feminists’ feelings.

Filed under: Gender Politics — Vman @ 6:33 pm

UN to Censor the Internet to Save Feminists’ Feelings

Helen Clarke has chaired a UN working group and published a plan to censor the internet to prevent anyone from hurting feminists feelings.

I am not kidding. I couldn’t make this stuff up.

According to feminist culture critic Anita Sarkeesian, who spoke at the event, online “harassment” doesn’t simply consist of what is “legal and illegal,” but “also the day-to-day grind of ‘you’re a liar’ and ‘you suck,’ including all of these hate videos that attack us on a regular basis.”

Apparently this is not just “harassment” but it is “violence”.
Yes that’s correct. Telling a feminist that she is ‘a liar’ is “violence” so bad that the entire internet needs to be censored to prevent it.

Cyber Bullying and Suicide

Filed under: General — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 10:21 am

This article Cyber bullying’s fatal connection reports correctly that more than 500 NZers commit suicide every year, but as usual makes no mention of the fact that about 80% of them a males. At least this article does focus on one male who apparently committed suicide after extensive cyber bullying. It also reports college principal Jim Luders stating

“Cyber bullying is hard to control. Adolescent girls, especially Year 9 in particular, are very aggressive in their attacks.”

In the light of such evidence, isn’t it amazing that the feminist propaganda machine is still able to convince so much of the public that males are the violent undesirable perpetrators and females the innocent morally superior victims.

The recommendations usually offered by authorities concerning cyber bullying and other internet dangers usually revolve around maintaining greater scrutiny and control of their children and teenagers’ internet use. Fat chance, especially since parental authority was chopped off at the knees by Bradfordonian false argument and feminist ideology.

The Emperor is not wearing clothes!!

Filed under: General — triassic @ 12:10 pm

There, I’ve said it…..ok, ok, ok, I realise I now risk appearing to be an idiot revealing an IQ of less than 100.

To be a journalist today one requires big big balls because to
declare the obvious is proffesional suicide. I refer to Chris Brown and his dilemma in obtaining a visa to perform in NZ. I don’t condone his assault on Rihhana but I also don’t condone the media’s assault on Brown. Every year dozens of visitors to this country obtain visas after having assaulted other men and serving less than a year in jail having being charged with GBH.

The ruling of not admitting criminals who reach the threshold of being undesirables due to their danger to the general public is not being implemented in this case. Chris presents no danger to the public and will visit here to entertain his fans. His lyrics contain no encouragement of DV. Only a bigot could not spot the transparent reason why he is being singled out.

If you haven’t the balls to declare that the Emperor has no clothes then you contribute to the demise of reason and the rise of ignorance and eventual tyranny and chaos.

A Female’s Honour is Priority for NZ Police

Filed under: General,Law & Courts — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 1:25 pm

NZ police went to a lot of effort to work with Danish police in order to arrest a Danish man who embarrassed and threatened a 15yo NZ schoolgirl and ‘cyber attacked’ her school. She had sent him naked images of herself and when she then sought to stop the online relationship he spread her images around the internet including her school and did other harassing things.

Teacher Kelsey Rebekah Allen has sex with student

Filed under: General — Lukenz @ 9:47 pm


Kelsey Rebekah Allen had a three month sexual relationship with a male student.

This news story seems to be missing the words predator, grooming.

It did however have the words “very bright and intelligent young woman”. Also had Kelsey was under stress when the relationship happerned.

Did not have a space for comments nor did it have the name of the reporter.

Please don’t get me wrong. I accept teachers have mutual sex with students. It’s just the way the unknown reporter makes out it was a mistake from a very bright and intelligent young woman and if it were a male teacher then it is called a grooming predator.

Seems to make the whole thing the male students fault.

No court trial, no threat of jail time.

Canadian Identity Researcher Professor Robert A. Kenedy Will Visit NZ

He will arrive on Thursday 15th October and expects to be in NZ for about one week.

I am doing research on fathers, shared/continued parenting, as well as related areas. I have been working in this area for about 26 years, mainly in Canada, the UK, and US. I am now looking at the Global Shared Parenting movement and would like to do interviews with those in Australia and New Zealand. The interviews will be part of the book I am writing about the Family Law system, the Fathers’ Rights/Parenting Movement, and related issues. I would like to interview fathers, mothers, grandmothers, grandfathers, and others who have been impacted by the Family Law System. I would also like to interview mental health professionals, legal professionals, and others who have concerns about the Family Law System. All interviews will be confidential and those being interviewed will remain anonymous.

Overall, I am interviewing parents and others who are concerned with the state of the family law system, children, and parenting. I am particularly concerned about the stress experienced as a result of separation and divorce such as potential mental and physical health issues as well as possible suicide ideation and suicide. I have also interviewed many participants who have discussed domestic violence, false accusations, and related issues.

MRA Perspectives on Recent Events

1. Michael Murray sentenced to life for murder of Connor Morris

It’s difficult to imagine anything more provocative than seeing a P-addled gang member bashing the shit out of your brother with the real possibility of death or permanent brain damage. That doesn’t mean it’s ok to have a slasher with you and to swing the steel end as hard as possible in to the P-addled gang member’s head, causing his or her hasty death. However, cases like this show just how nasty and unrealistic it was to remove the partial defence of provocation, at least for males in situations of true provocation. Michael Murray may have been able to run that partial defence and many reasonable people would have seen that as justified. He would still have been sent to prison for years and fair enough. It would have been possible under our current murder laws to sentence him to a non-parole period of less than 10 years but it seemed that, because privileged female half-celebrity Millie Elder was upset (at losing her P supplier?), this possible way of taking into account provocation was unconscionable. Either way, Michael Murray won’t spend his imprisonment in ‘solitary confinement’ as our stupid media have been reporting, but he will be in a protection block with mainly harmless sex offenders; that won’t be very safe or feel very safe to him though.

What’s bad about gay marriage?

Filed under: General — triassic @ 1:52 am

Help me here please! There must be something about the above debate I just can’t get. Marriage is a tradition from the earliest societies when humans had developed the cognisance to understand the importance of creating a safe environment for their offspring to develop in. Couples, of opposite sex, were the only ones able to create children. That’s what made marriage such a strong and sacrosanct institution. WTF has marriage got to do with benefiting adults at all? It is an institution that demands responsibility and accountability in order to protect the children and not, as is often put forward, to show love between couples.

Once again I see signs that the needs of children are being neglected in favour of catering to the desires of adults. This debate has zip to do with morality and everything to do with raising happy children. I haven’t the time to write more but if you take the time to debate this subject you will find that many of the weak and often invalid arguments put forward for gay marriage have the same roots as those used by feminists to justify their pernicious ideology.

Ministry of Justice Refuses to Correct Wrong Statistics

Filed under: Gender Politics,General,Law & Courts — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 11:46 pm

FYI, our media release 07/09/2015

Ministry of Justice Refuses to Change False Statistics

Community group the Ministry for Men has accused the Ministry of Justice and other government departments of spreading false statistics about domestic violence then refusing to correct their error after being informed.

The Ministry of Justice recently published a document called ‘Strengthening NZ’s legislative response to family violence; A public discussion document’ that claimed at its outset “On average, every year 14 women, 7 men and 8 children are killed by a family member”. The same claim appears on a Ministry of Social Development web page and has been repeated by news media and other groups.

Ministry for Men spokesman Kerry Bevin said that the figures are not in line with any official records and appear to have been plucked out of thin air.

“NZ Police figures on family homicides from the years 2007 to 2014 don’t show anything like what our Ministries are claiming as averages. The latest report from the state-funded Family Violence Death Review Committee show that the true average figures are 13 women, 10 men and 9 children.”

Kerry Bevin said the error was significant. “These false statistics lead the public to believe that twice as many women as men are killed through family violence, whereas in fact 43% of family violence deaths are suffered by men. That gives a very different picture of the problem.”

Kerry Bevin said it was concerning that the Ministry for Justice would publish misleading statistics in a discussion document that the public is being asked to read before providing submissions regarding proposed family violence law changes.

“Public submissions will be based on the false picture being painted, so resulting solutions can be expected to miss the mark.”

“It’s a sorry state of affairs when taxpayers cannot trust government Ministries to provide accurate information about such a basic matter, and it’s appalling that those Ministries have refused to correct their error when made aware of it.”

The Ministry for Men called on both Ministries and any other group that had repeated the false statistics to issue corrections quickly, to ensure that those taking the time to make submissions on family law changes are properly informed.


Send Women Back to Fight Too, Winston (and f*** off with them)

Filed under: Gender Politics,General — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 9:29 pm

We don’t actually agree that anyone should be sent back to Syria to fight, mainly because we think that fighting for Syria’s corrupt and inhumane dictatorship would be no better than fighting for ISIS, the Russians or most of the other ‘rebel’ groups there. How could anyone fight for their country’s ‘freedom’ in those circumstances? Freedom from whom? Not that we know that much about it.

However, we are appalled that Winston Peters recommended today that we allow Syrian women and children to stay in NZ but that we send some of the men back to fight for “their own country’s freedom”. (more…)

Need support and advice

Filed under: General — maheshav @ 9:06 am

I am in a troubled marriage and facing accusations that I am a bad father and husband. It is getting to me. There is a long history to my marriage and I have recently discovered I am asexual. And then, my wife goes and tells our 15 year old daughter that I am gay, and therefore the problems in our marriage.

This is impacting my daughter, and my wellbeing, apart from the fact that my wife is very unhappy. It is not easy to simply break up and walk away, as both my wife, and daughter, depend on my income.

I just need someone to talk to and seek advise from.

Hope this is the right forum, as I just cannot afford to go to any counselors

Welfare fit for families in a changing world

(Retirement Policy and Research Centre)

08 September 2015

9am – 5pm

Venue: The University of Auckland Business School, Lecture Theatre OGGB5, Level 0, Owen G Glenn Building, 12 Grafton Road, Auckland

The wellbeing of the poorest families appears to be at the heart of Government policy, yet the primary focus of this Government has been workfare, not welfare. Are there different policy directions that better meet the changed demographic and economic circumstances of families in the 21st Century?

The False Gods of Feminism

The Fiamengo Files

Filed under: Gender Politics — JohnPotter @ 5:02 pm

I’ve just had my attention drawn to a remarkable series of videos which MENZ readers will find interesting. This woman gets it.

Janice Fiamengo is an outspoken critic of academic feminism, censorship and gender bias. She is an ardent supporter of freedom of speech, and now identifies as an anti-feminist.

She is an English professor at the University of Ottawa, and this series captures her thoughts on contemporary culture, and the destructive influence of feminism.

She says: “Feminist victim ideology is an illness of the mind”.

NZ Centre for Political Research

Filed under: General — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 10:06 pm

The NZCPR is Dr Muriel Newman’s organization and web site. She has many good thinkers providing opinion pieces. Dr Newman is we believe the only NZ politician who tried to introduce a bill into parliament for a presumption of shared care by both parents after separation; the Labour government’s feminists voted it down because it would threaten women’s DPB entitlement.

We don’t agree with everything Dr Newman and her writers say. However, she has this week written a piece on feminism and sole parenthood that is worth a read.

Here is a response to her article by one of MoMA’s team:

Boshier To Be Chief Ombudsman

Filed under: General — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 6:48 pm

How can the head of the a male-blaming campaign that deliberately excludes concern for male victims be trusted to be an ombudsman? How can a person who has publicly called for more draconian state violence towards men be put in that role? NZ men can now look forward to the same discrimination they routinely experienced in Boshier’s Family Court man-denigration machine. NZ men will now be deprived of fair service from what should be a public watchdog on the behaviour of other state organisations.

Convicted Killer living with Children

Filed under: General — goose @ 12:10 am


this guy has been in the media a number of times, my son is the 14 yr old mentioned in this article and the way I was treated when I asked the Police if this man was a risk to my child was awful. I am pretty sure if the shoe was on the other foot, i.e I had my son living with me and my new partner was a convicted killer – cyfs would have removed the children from my care, but all I got was ‘this sounds like a custody issue so we will not be getting involved’
