The No Vote Option

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 9:52 am

As indicated in recent news articles, less people are interested in voting.

I find that understandable, given the behaviour of politicians and political parties.

New Zealand Ghettos aka Social Housing

Filed under: General — Julie @ 6:21 pm

A huge amount of men in New Zealand are in need of community support, i.e., social housing, foodbanks, etc, etc, and I think that many men become aware, i.e., swallow the red pill, when they reach out for community support and find it non-existent or lacking. (more…)

Misandry Rules Labour

Filed under: Gender Politics,General — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 9:12 pm

With Helen Clark’s feminist agenda still driving misandrist anti-male policy in the Labour Party it comes as no surprise a new childless feminist, Jacinda Adern, has won control, claim the Ministry of Men’s Affairs (MoMA).
MoMA is a community group because successive governments have neglected the voice and welfare of men and boys. They believe New Zealand’s social policy and law is now powerfully biased against males. This has been promoted through the Ministry for Women with well over $100 million of taxpayer money. It was heavily funded in the Clark era. No balancing Ministry for Men exists. No such substantial resource has been given to the concerns of the male half of the population. (more…)

Tool to Help in Your Voting

Filed under: General — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 10:54 am

We found this tool in which you choose your views and preferences about matters and these are compared with the policies to tell you which party’s policies are most in line with your views. Seems reasonably based and quite fun:

White Men Alleged to Support Forced Under-aged Prostitution

Filed under: General — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 5:31 pm

This prominent article in the NZ Herald told us that “social researcher” Natalie Thorburn “released disturbing findings” such as that “Girls just 12 years old were often groomed by boyfriends who eventually forced them into a situation where they had no option but to sell their bodies”.

Ms Thorburn also claimed that “A 9-year-old girl was tied to her bed by her mother and forced to have sex with men” and that the youngsters had told her about being forced to submit to sex. (more…)

Labour’s policy remains guilty unless you can prove you are innocent

Guilty until proven innocent

With 20 years jail in the balance, when will National publicly as Labour to clarify this policy.

Tones of Fathers Day

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 12:31 pm

Recollections of Father’s Day from older men might be a curiosity to younger readers.

For me, being the youngest in the Family, I recall the annual presentation of a white porcelain tea cup with pictures of old cars – we’re talking Model T Fords and Chrysler convertibles, just to be clear, not old bombs.

The modern perception of this annual religious fervour might have us as a bunch of tosspots following in some Old English custom. But it suited a man who didn’t like a lot of fuss, added to his valued collection, and reminded him daily his children had paid their annual respects in person.

Jump forward to 2017 (more…)

My name is Bill Clarke.

I am writing a book about fatherhood and I want to interview dads. I am interested in hearing their STORIES – about their fathers, or their own story of “Dads in distress” or “Dads in success” in raising their children.

Parent but not a mother

Filed under: Law & Courts — Chris @ 5:32 pm

So as a man in his mid 40’s I had pretty much resigned to the fact that I was not going to become a father. I discovered that one partner I had for a few years was proud of her 11 abortions… shortly thereafter I gently tippytoed away from the secondary school teacher in a boys school in West Auckland. After that my next partner of 18 months announced she was pregnant, I knew she was before she told me, but she is so utterly impractical that she almost had to deliver to find out. Roll forward 3 years. We have a boy, she slept with some lucky bloke and I guess the guilt made her have to let me know, we were over. He can have her. (more…)

Isn’t that a blow to the Banks

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 6:38 pm

John Banks, known to some of us as a passionate supporter of Fathers, refused a DNA test.

If you were a father, would you not want to know?

Help me out here, is the estate, or pride, or something, more important than your own offspring.

I’m having a bit of trouble with this one, especially after my personal interactions with this political force.

Corrections Policy Called Corrupt

Filed under: Domestic Violence,Gender Politics,General,Law & Courts — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 4:55 pm

A men’s group has labelled a new policy announced this week by Corrections Minister Louise Upston as “corrupt”. The new policy aims to reduce the likelihood that female criminals will be sent to prison.

Spokesman Kerry Bevin for community group The Ministry of Men’s Affairs said the policy was an abandonment of the principle of equal justice for all under the law. (more…)

Fathers Speak Out at Parliament

Filed under: Gender Politics,General — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 10:27 pm

Fathers are speaking out at parliament on Friday 1st September, the Friday before Fathers’ Day.

MPs have been invited to address the concerns of disgruntled fathers who claim they have been neglected for decades and their parenting role abused. They claim ‘de-fathering’ has delivered many thousands of devastated families and led to further child abuses when children are unprotected by their fathers. (more…)

Today’s Lesson on Equality

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 8:17 am

A Feminist instructer was dutifully educating a small group of eager students in a lesson in equality.

Among the 10 aspiring students, who sought the ultimate prize, the Borg Award for collective understanding, was a young man keen to understand the requirements of the Feminist Master.

Beside them, was a small bridge over a deep dark abyss.

Now, students, please pay attention and watch me closely … and the instructor proceeded to gracefully cross the bridge and return to the class.

Now, James, would you take your turn and do the same please.

James, confident in his endeavors strode forth to cross the bridge, but at the centre point of the arch, the bridge gave way, and James fell into the deep dark hole. A small thud echoed up, but nothing more was heard of James.

The instructor smiled, and raising her eyebrows in quiet jubilation announced, “And, that girls, is today’s lesson in equality”.

MPs Blind to Parent Equality

Filed under: General — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 9:02 pm

Members of Parliament are blind to the damage done to families by our social policy and law that is skewed away from ‘parent equality’, said Ministry of Men’s Affairs spokesman, Kerry Bevin.

“Father’s Day has become a tragedy for many families as de-fathering has continued for decades.” (more…)

All the Parents Fault

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 9:27 am

This article appears in the NZ Herald and attributes blame for the current state of unruly youth to the parents.

It can’t go without a mention – whether you can be bothered reading the article is a different story.

That’s not what it was meant for.

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 9:28 am

“It broke.”

“Yeah. Well, that’s not what is was meant for.”

Wrong tool for the job. But a DIY lesson many of us would have learnt.

“That will learn ya.” Was an expression I often heard from an old man who was watching the kids around him growing up.

What about Feminists trying their hand at a bit of DIY short-sighted thinking?

Did they take something that wasn’t purpose build for their ends. Was there something they thought, would do the job, but they never considered the possibility it might break?

In relative terms, as far as the civilized world goes, only nature and war could make such a mess in such a short period of time.

Those Feminists. Are they nothing but natural warmongers?

How big does the mess need to be, before someone says, the house is a mess?

MILO on the Threat of Silicon Valley

Filed under: Gender Politics — JohnPotter @ 8:37 am

Milo discussing Google:

“Some people within that company have such extreme politics that science is off-limits when it comes to talking about the differences between men and women. That’s remarkable. And terrifying.”

He is talking about the growing trend for “politically incorrect” organisations to be banned from the internet, and for search results to be sanitised. Our right to free speech is under significant assault. (more…)
