Correct thinking by Muriel Newman

Article on NZCPR Weekly By Dr Muriel Newman:

Compehensive welfare reforms now underway

Over the years our welfare rolls burgeoned – especially once the stand-alone Domestic Purposes Benefit was introduced in the early seventies. Pushed by feminists as a way of enabling women to raise their children independent from men, the DPB incentivised family breakdown – undermining marriage and creating widespread fatherlessness.

Letter to Judge Boshier, White Ribbon Campaign

Filed under: General — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 8:31 am

FYI, our recent letter. Note also that the White Ribbon Campaign maintains a block on correspondence from people it doesn’t like to hear from. It soon blocks anyone who expresses criticism or concern about the campaign.

Characteristics of Children Raised in Biological Family vs Other Arrangements

Filed under: General — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 11:11 pm

Actually this table is derived, otherwise accurately, from a study that compared children who grew up in a ‘Mom and Dad’ family with children whose mother had a sexual relationship with another woman in various family arrangements, rather than having ‘Two Moms’ . But it’s still possibly a bit interesting.

Madness or is it just me

Filed under: Domestic Violence,General — allan harvey @ 5:11 pm

Am I mad?

Umm just wanting to check my sanity. Associate Professor of Law at Auckland University Ms Julia Tolmie surely must be sane. Such an important position, such responsibility to be appointed to chair the Family Violence Deaths Review Committee.

Legal gap for battered spouses who kill

Moves to push for a law change allowing battered wives who kill their husbands in cold blood to plead self-defence are being considered by a government committee.

The Family Violence Deaths Review Committee says New Zealand is out of step with other countries in not offering at least a partial defence for women who kill their husbands after years of abuse.

Filed under: Child Support,General,Sex Abuse / CYF — BigBud @ 4:35 pm

Hi All,

My daughter (adopted) was unhappy about some things on the home front (having to do chores for pocket money, having to eat everything on the dinner plate for dessert, and not getting an iPhone for her birthday, etc…), standard gripes for a preteen…. As a matter of fact she was so disappointed that she went to a counsellor at her school and reported that I was beating her. Needless to say CPS were right on the case with a Notice of Concern.
