The biggest crooks here are the IRD and everyone involved with the Child Support system.
The father in all faith would have complained to the Police, should he have had the slightest inkling of his daughter missing. But the Child Support system kept on claiming money. Coupled with the fact that the wife’s disappearance was nothing out of ordinary, there were no warning triggers that something was amiss. The father has to be applauded for taking the initiative to hire a private investigator despite being leeched by Child Support system.
The Police are quick to acknowledge the fact that a late complaint made the investigations late. They should be taking this time to review their policies of treating males as criminals, and making modifications to the system such that the Family Law is not looked upon as a threat and something to stay away from.
A woman separating from her husband and disappearing does NOT always mean that she has been abused or the man has been violent or abusive.
There are other factors that also happen, such as, the woman getting into extra-marital affairs, or the woman’s family inciting her to live less like a couple and treat the family unit more like a matriarchy. Yes, in-law influence is an unfortunate fact in many cases also.
And the biggest botch-up has been made by the previous leftist Government. Having made the solo-mum-by-choice lifestyle so lucrative through WINZ and other benefits, they have created heaps of solo mums by choice and investment children.
My thoughts are with the father. Poor guy, caught up in a culture clash from a conservative developing country and a “all rights and no responsibility” Western country. Having lost an “angel” through the crooked system at such a tender age.
There are a lot of male suicides that have happened by evil feminist-run Family Courts and Child Support system. This is not so much an issue as men usually have lived most of their lives, but the loss of a daughter at this tender age, having caught up in this mess, is too tragic.
This murder’s blood had not only tainted the hands of the two accused, but has also tainted EVERYONE that supports this messed up system setup by the feminist liberals to oppress ALL males regardless of whether they are guilty or not.
NZCER was contracted by the Association of Boys’ Schools of New Zealand (ABSNZ) to undertake an analysis of student achievement in New Zealand boys’ schools, and to identify approaches and strategies used by high-achieving boys’ schools.
In 2012, 28 percent of boys leaving school came from boys’ schools: a total of 7,439 students, increased somewhat from 7,390 in 2010.
The quantitative analysis provided here compares the achievement of boys in state and state-integrated boys’ secondary schools with the achievement of boys in state and state-integrated co-educational secondary schools over the period 2010–12. It uses data on secondary qualifications, namely: …

I am a Photographer / Artist from Raumati, near Wellington.
I have an exhibition running that opened last weekend. “Pater Invisiblis”(invisible Father) is a photographic exhibition about my experiences as an absent father.
The exhibition is at the Bach Gallery, Waikanae Beach and only runs until 19th October.
Perhaps the main highlight of this website ‘MENZ’, for me, was the connection to men caring about families dealing with Child, Youth and Family Services aka CYFS.
I have been asked for feedback on this new service (active since 1 April 2014).
If you have any feedback that you wish to have passed on; good, bad, anonymous then please respond either here or to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
We will be meeting with their team leader of mediation services early next month.
Ide like to know what the Oz cops spent on this woman and her false gang rape claim.
I note the Oz law is 7 years for a false complaint. NZ is only 3. But in reality it’s nil because they almost never charge and if it ever goes to court there’s just a warning.
Here is a good example of New Zealand’s attitude regarding violence towards males. A man had almost every bone in the right side of his face broken, underwent numerous facial reconstruction surgeries, has titanium plates in his skull and suffers permanent damage and ongoing complicaitons. The attacker was charged with the serious offence ‘injuring with intent to injure’. Court delays ensued for various reasons and because of this the case has now been thrown out by a judge. The victim claims he was ready to go on all of the previous hearing dates that were adjourned. (more…)
Brenda Leyland committed suicide (apparently), a few days after a tv crew ‘outed’ her for making thousands of tweets under a false identity mostly expressing blame and hatred towards Madeline McCann’s parents. For example “I fear, that we are in this 4 long haul, up to all of us to a) Bang home the facts b) make mccann s live in shame for years”. (more…)
This message was recently sent to me via the contact form. I will advise Tammy to check the comments her message receives.
Recently, the local Police Family Violence Coordinator rang me on behalf of the ex, who has a Protection Order against me. He offered to mediate an upcoming contact, which to me wasn’t that bad anyway. I politely refused his offer on these two grounds:
Misguided men continue to be hoodwinked into supporting this discriminatory campaign. Note the trickery where this campaign that cares only about women and demonizes only men, refers to itself as “inspiring and equipping men to help stop violence in their communities” and “this Hui effectively engaged men, educating and inspiring them about violence”. So these white knights are redefining ‘communities’ as consisting of women as the only significant members and redefining ‘violence’ as something done only when it’s against women.
Feel free to provide some feedback to email@example.com but be aware that these arrogant ideologues have absolutely no interest in discussing the issues and will soon block anyone who dares to raise any concerns about their divisive, discriminatory, misandrist hate campaign. (more…)
Affectionately named Middle Earth after our involvement in The Lord of the Rings production, one can’t help thinking, that to the rest of the world New Zealand might look like the scene of one of Tolkien’s legendary battles, following our recent and ugly parliamentary election; just how you would characterise the Labour Party after their tragic loss, I will leave to the imagination of the reader.
But what of the men of middle earth – where has that left us?
This documentary is a great study into male sexuality. Be sure to watch it past the end credits for a commentary by the Director Jan-Willem Breure. The amount of information on fem
ale sexuality has nearly filled the universe so this doco is very welcome. Male sexuality hardly gets a mention other than the negative aspects. There are many things that we know about the subject but an abundance of things we don’t. What I liked about this doco is its juxtaposition of the medias interpretation of pedophilia to that of sexologists. The disgust men feel about pedophilia, and those that practice it, prevents healthy discourse. The male desire for the shape of the female body past puberty is NORMAL, HEALTHY and should never bring a sense of shame. What is shameful is when males have no control over that desire and no respect for the person, whose body it belongs to.
Election 2014 for New Zealand is over.
It’s been an interesting election in many ways, some of which are discussed on this site in posts over the last 6 months while others are so not relevant to us here; collectively this has been overwhelming, in the media and on the outcome of the election, but what should not escape us is the dramatic and very real depiction of political feminism in action.

Well there I was thinking I could salary package my car and try and save a bit on tax and running costs each year. But, stupid me hadn’t realised, until I read the following article http://www.salarypackagingcards.com.au/index.php/child-support-salary-packaging/ , that if I salary package my car I will have to pay even more in Child Tax. I confirmed this with the Novated Leasing agent and it is in fact true. I still can’t believe it and I hope it isn’t the same in NZ but it’s certainly the case over here in Oz. So, by some magic form of creative accounting the CSA people calculate that I am being given a car which I’m actually paying for and calculate the whole thing as a fringe benefit. It seems that I can’t even take a dump without incurring more child tax. I am utterly gob smacked. Have any of you guys come across a similar thing. It seems like discrimination is a bad thing unless the discrimination is against a liable parent. I feel like a social leper. All my colleagues are salary sacrificing their cars and are saving money but it will actually cost me money because I am a liable dad!!!

Social Workers Day a time to celebrate – PSA
PSA, Fuseworks September 24, 2014, 7:49 pm
The Public Service Association (PSA) is celebrating Social Workers Day today, and congratulates the Aotearoa New Zealand Association of Social Workers (ANZASW) on 50 years of being the voice of the profession.
Glenn Barclay, PSA acting national secretary, said “social workers help countless New Zealanders every year,” “The PSA is proud of what our social work members do to help improve the lives of people across the country. “As the union for social workers, we represent over a thousand highly skilled and hardworking people who are passionate about helping people thrive. “Social workers do their jobs in a wide variety of settings, including District Health Boards; Child, Youth and Family, and across the community sector. “This year is the 50th anniversary of ANZASW, and we’re proud to work alongside them to help social workers do their best. “Thank you to all social workers, we truly value your skills, expertise and passion,” said Glenn Barclay.
Surely Barclay wasn’t referring to CYFS was he? Improving “the lives of people across the country”; maybe improving the lot for employees of CYFS but certainly not the children and families who have had to suffer their PC, bureaucratic and autocratic intolerance.
Social workers day – surely a day to forget.
The MRS website It’s a terrible acronym, isn’t it. Maybe even worse than MOMA (Ministry of Men’s Affairs).
They exist, it’s a point of contact, and they hold meetings. So if you’re a male escaping New Zealand and headed to Sydney, could be a good place to start.
Men’s Rights Sydney usually meets once a month in the suburb of Newtown. As we are still a fairly young group, meetings are being organised on an ad hoc basis. If you are interested in attending, just send us a PM containing your name (first name is fine) & your email address & we will email you the details of our next meeting.
There could be an opening for reciprocal trade in males escaping the tyranny of the system, if we had a comparative organisation in Auckland (MRA)
On a historical note – we’re probably in better position than the Woman’s Libbers. Wellington organisation for women (WOW) was ok, but Christchurch and Southland groups had a bit of a problem with the format.
Sorry about the boring title folks but I am a bit curious about how IRD can force me to pay Child Support after the mother has been out of the country for a year or more. The mother of my children has taken my 2 kids to Canada to live permanently. All 3 (her and the 2 kids) have both NZ and Canadian citizenship. They relocated about 3 months ago. So, they now live permanently in Canada and I live in Australia where I’ve been for the past 5 years. IRD seem to think that I will have to keep paying and paying and paying until my youngest is 19. It seems a bit odd to me that they can enforce this when she’s living in another country and they have no way of knowing if, for example, my daughter is working full time. Come to think of it IRD don’t really have any way of keeping tabs on her at all now that she’s under a foreign countries jurisdiction. Does anyone out there know anything about the IRD CS laws and how they apply to this situation? Can she initiate an Admin Review against me for example now that she’s permanently relocated overseas? Thanks in advance.
Bankrupt property developer Terry Serepisos says he is “flabbergasted” after being arrested at the airport over a few thousand dollars in unpaid child support. (more…)
Late night browsing…okay not that late and came across this one……maybe someone finally gets it
Old sayings are often a reflection of a different era and in effect become modern day myths. One such saying that comes to mind is that men only vote for their wallet. When they had families to support they may have been more inclined to do so, but this election has put the saying firmly in the myth category.
The National Party has seen an impressive win under our current electoral system (similar to the German MMP system); did men go running to National because of their wallets? No, of course they didn’t, Labour was offering a $2.00 an hour increase in the minimum wage.
Did men abandon Labour? Yes, of course they did as was discussed in NZ Labour and the feminist election campaign; even they admit it.
Was that enough to give National such a resounding success or is there more to it than that? (more…)
It came out loud and clear as far back as July that election 2014 was going to be the election of the feminist, or so THEY thought. Most of the relevant posts can be accessed through a previous post New Zealand Labour and the Feminist Election Campaign.
The post election analysis is going to be interesting, not only for what we might say here, but what the New Zealand media might actually say about it.
The campaign got even more overt when Internet-Mana announced that it WAS a ‘feminist party – one step up on Labour running a feminist campaign whilst trying to pretend that they weren’t really a feminist party. (more…)
This is a discussion that started back in a July post NZ Labour and the Feminist Election Campaign
The election wallpaper is pretty much all hung now and the pre post-election analysis is already beginning – as you can see in this article from Duncan Garner.
There are some interesting points coming out of a conversation with a Labour candidate: (more…)
The Woody Allen sex scandal of 2013 triggered a national conversation on who to believe, with people lining up on each side as if they knew what really happened.
Based on recent research on how people navigate the often tricky waters of sexual negotiation, Dr. Carol Tavris shows that it is entirely possible in some sexual assault cases neither side is lying, but instead both sides feel justified in their positions.
This talk was considered one of the best ever given at The 2014 Amazing Meeting.
