Century of women

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 7:51 pm

Here we have it from the UN Secretary-General; it is not the century of global warming or Middle East humanitarian crisis, no, it’s the century of women!

Men can relate to and care for children

Filed under: Domestic Violence,Gender Politics,Law & Courts,Sex Abuse / CYF — MurrayBacon @ 10:56 am

Although NZ familycaught$ judges seem unaware that men can relate to and care for children and can successfully take care of children, newspaper records regularly show a more realistic picture.

Sometimes, I wonder if judges don’t read newspapers or listen to stories about families in NZ?

Where is the deterrent for female offending?

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 10:39 am

We can’t say that women have never been criminals. I recall as a child the local Postmistress being jailed for ‘borrowing’ money in an elaborate fraud that eventually became too big to conceal. Certainly there is a frequency and variety of offending that we now see in the media, that we didn’t see before. (more…)

Men Don’t Matter

Filed under: Gender Politics,General,Men's Health — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 1:44 pm

In case we need reminding, men’s suffering of abuse, violence and disadvantage is often covered up while for women it is highlighted. Here are a few stories in today’s papers showing this. (more…)

Value of Perjury

Filed under: General — MurrayBacon @ 9:27 pm

Perjury is worth a lot to legal-workers, as it fuels most of the meritless cases that consume time and waste costs in our caughts. It wastes the money of tax paying parties too.

Join the NZ army

The New Zealand Army is recruiting. This is probably relevant to a younger age group than the average MENZ reader, but some of you may have kids who could be interested.

Gender difference?

We had an interesting experience recently. We stopped as required at a 1-lane bridge to let cars approaching from the other direction get over the bridge first. (more…)

Female drink driver let off by judge

Filed under: General — Lukenz @ 12:07 pm

No doubt all judges will have to use this as precedence when the next woman is charged with a drink driving offence. Pity these no similar reference set for males.

Samantha Geimer “Woman of the Century”

Filed under: General — triassic @ 5:31 am

In case I am misunderstood in this post Video and incorrectly labelled by the ‘Lace Curtain’ brigade, let me make one thing clear, I abhor rape and in particular, paedophilia.

40 Years ago Film Director, Roman Polanski, did indeed have intercourse with a 13 year old and committed statutory rape. Rape of any type is disgraceful but more so when a young child is involved. However, that being said, an equal and pernicious act is that of victim-hood.

The jury reflects the public’s degree of discernment

Filed under: General,Law & Courts — triassic @ 12:43 am

Coughing fit led to elbow attack, court told.

Crown prosecutor Mr Mcdiarmid told the jury an assault was to touch someone intentionally without their consent, and didn’t need to be hard or cause an injury.

This case will hold an interesting outcome for two reasons:

1. Will a jury view a case, with no injury inflicted and no witnesses to the event, strong enough to convict on?

2. How will the judge direct the jury?

Men on Strike – book review

Filed under: Gender Politics,General,Law & Courts — JohnPotter @ 5:55 am

Men on Strike – Why Men are Boycotting Marriage, Fatherhood and the American Dream, and Why it Matters. By Helen Smith PhD.

Although this new book about men is written by a woman, she clearly likes men, and listens to what men say, both socially and professionally in her practice as a psychologist. She also runs a  men’s rights blog, so she is well informed about contemporary male attitudes.

Male offender: Bristol Clauses. Female Offender: Pussy Pass.

Filed under: Domestic Violence,Gender Politics,General,Law & Courts — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 10:25 pm

Step right up ladies and gentlemen to see yet another unbelievable act of mental gymnastics, flexible ideology and creative justice. When a man did it we got the Bristol Clauses with feminist claims that all men are potential child murderers no matter how they might appear, and we saw tens of thousands of men treated accordingly. But when a women does it, albeit unsuccessfully, we get heaps of sympathy for her, her lame excuses are taken as truth and she is sentenced to, wait for it, 6 months’ supervision! (more…)

Suicidal subspecies

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 12:00 pm

http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/9166782/Disturbing-trend-in-boomer-suicides

The following comments are based on the above article by Sarah Harvey.

The post-World War II population bubble is just that, a post-war population-bubble. For some reason people born into that era seem to be viewed as a genetic deviation to the human race, their existence conveniently answering awkward questions for lazy researchers.

Baby boomers risk pushing our already high suicide rate to new levels as the rate of elderly people committing suicide skyrockets.

There we have it; Babyboomers are responsible for the ‘skyrocketing’ rates of elderly suicide. By the same analysis since there were only 94 murders in the decade of the 1950’s and over 500 in the current decade – we’re homicidal maniacs as well.

United Nations demands money

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 12:52 pm

The following article gives insight into the philosophical position of the particular division of the United Nations responsible for women. I can easily see there being real resistance, (not a backlash against equality) to offering money to people who think like this especially when you get down to this piece.

“Women need equal access to education, opportunities, and to economic resources such as credit and land, and to justice,” she said. “Women need to have choices and for this sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights are essential.”

How will they achieve their goals?

In 2012, UN Women’s revenue was $220 million and its expenses were $235 million. This year, she said the agency needs $100 million to end 2013 “in a healthy way.”

Spend more than you have and put your hand out for more!

Women’s economic empowerment

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 8:50 am

http://www.catapult.org/project/online-employment-training-women-workers

UN Women’s Knowledge Gateway for Women’s Economic Empowerment will launch in September 2013. It is an online platform for women’s economic empowerment.

The article goes on to quote the United Nations;

Women bear a disproportionate burden of the world’s poverty. They are often paid less than men for their work and employed in insecure, unsafe and low-wage jobs. According to UN Women, they receive just 10% of the world’s income yet do 66% of the work.

Interesting to note the economic data released from the United States this week; (more…)

White Ribbon People Should be Speaking Up Against These Children

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

White Fibber Campaign conscripts pledge never to commit, support or fail to speak up against violence towards women. So why aren’t we hearing them challenge the children and other critics of this woman who are subjecting her to the most serious verbal abuse?

The Consequence of Father Removal

“Of course she loved the child”, and that’s why she tried to deprive her daughter of the father’s love and protection. And now “I’ve lost everything”. Poor thing. (more…)
