Women muscle in on men’s sports

Filed under: Gender Politics,General — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 5:52 pm

Watched the rugby semi final All Blacks vs Springboks. Not sure what interviews were shown after the match on NZ television but the broadcast we saw involved an English female interviewer questioning the captains and others. She asked inane questions with hackneyed comments about the Springboks ‘asking a lot of questions’ of the All Blacks in the match and such like. There was no question of particular insight or relevance to the match, such as concerning the large number of penalties incurred by NZ that actually provided the Sth Africans with all their points. It seemed that a female interviewer was chosen out of some ideological principle but she lacked basic understanding of the game and bullshitted her way through. Women feel they must, and are entitled to, muscle their way into every male domain, and believe that men should not be allowed any clubs or domains of their own while female-only groups and services abound. Would we see a male interviewing the captains etc after a major netball match? We doubt it. But if that ever were to happen it’s likely that the man would learn something about the game and ask some useful questions.

Media may be recognising the public mood

This editorial from the Herald on Sunday expresses criticism of Welsh police handling of an allegation against Mils Muliaina, in a rare departure from our media’s usual white knight feminist propaganda. It deserves some supportive comments we think.

The Fortunes of Men

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 3:16 pm

The fortunes of men (and I’m talking about the male of the species here) have waxed and waned throughout history, but there have been some defining moments.

Over the years some of those have been mentioned on this site.

What do you think are the defining moments in history for men, both negative and positive?

Paternity and Your Genes

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 7:31 am

Paternity is not in your genes, it is in your sperm.

Source story:

The guts of this story is that your genes and the genes in your sperm can be different.

The same can apply to a women and her eggs.

Can anyone spot what’s missing from this report ?

Filed under: General — golfa @ 3:46 pm

Given the path that other recent similar cases have taken, I’m surprised the Police haven’t acted …. Maybe they have, but it’s not mentioned in this article? Know what it is ?

Control the male own the female

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 5:47 am

For centuries man has been domesticating animals for his own use. Whether it is for labour or production of food, control of the male is a key factor.

If there is a danger, in most cases it will come from the male – shoot the rogue animal.

In modern day New Zealand, where there are more cows than people propping up the dairy giant Fonterra, the same basic principle applies; control the male own the female.

The business of farming.

Humans being animals of the planet, the same principle can be applied. When you herd enough of us together into a confined situation, as in the development of civil societies, laws follow the principle, and humans start the process of domestication of their lessor beings.

The success, wants, needs, and demands of the city soon override our natural state of freedom.

The determination not to lose control of power, position, and privilege, becomes more and more draconian, as men are increasingly restricted and controlled, while women are herded into the stables of civilization.

The Free World is rapidly returning to the servile state, and to the new age of slavery.

Then will come the time, when we can no longer blame Feminism, only our own ignorance.

Single fathers – solo dads and Social Services – Anonymous Survey

Filed under: General — realkiwi @ 4:34 pm

Single-fathers’ experiences and perceptions of social services – Anonymous Survey

Sharon Yella of AUT is currently conducting an online anonymous survey on single-dads’ experiences and perceptions of social services. Last year, Sharon did a study that showed that single-dads weren’t always treated right by organizations such as CYFS, WINZ and even Plunket. From this she realized we needed more voices on the topic about family services that engage with fathers.

To be considered a single father in this survey, you need to have your child/ren, around half or most of the time.

The survey should take less than ten minutes, so we hope you can do it, plus we need these stories, good, bad or indifferent! We would be grateful if you could please help us spread the word to all the single fathers around Aotearoa New Zealand, we know some of them are doing it tough.

Please help by adding your experiences here…

What’s a male fairy tale? (A philosophical view)

Filed under: General — triassic @ 8:59 am

Once upon a time, a Prince asked a beautiful Princess, “Will you marry me ?”

The Princess immediately said, “No!” And the Prince lived happily ever after, and rode motorcycles and dated thin, long-legged, full-breasted women, and hunted and fished and raced cars, and went to titty bars and dated ladies half his age and drank whiskey, beer, and Captain Morgan, and never heard bitching and never paid child support or alimony, and dated cheerleaders and kept his house and guns, and ate spam and potato chips and beans, and blew enormous farts, and never got cheated on while he was at work, and all his friends and family thought he was flipping cool as hell, and he had tons of money in the bank, and always left the toilet seat up without umbrage in the home.

The End

Now that’s a male fairy tale!!!

NZ Prison Suicides Experiment 1984 to 1988

Filed under: General — MurrayBacon @ 4:54 pm

Illustration of Hazards From Failing to Monitor a New Social Programme Effectively

This analysis presents the prisons situation as an experiment.

The managers in prisons might choose to view the situation as resulting from prisoner violence, causing withdrawal of psychologist’s services, due to inability to safely protect the psychologists from violent prisoners.

Both viewpoints have some degree of validity, but if the managers were being prosecuted for the manslaughters, their incompetent interpretation shouldn’t protect them from proper legal accountability. (Officer, yes I am allowed to go faster than the speed limit, on nice days when I am in the mood to go fast.)

This example is included to show why it is important to monitor the performance of new programmes, to see that they are working as intended.
If you don’t know what the outcome will be, then you are doing an experiment.
If you don’t monitor the progress of the experiment, then you are unable to stop the experiment, if there are too many adverse outcomes.

Trust in professionals

I have often commented about my views on the professionalism and skills of the peoples working in familycaught$. Although occasionally complimentary, most of my comments suggest that there might be room for improvement. My views are only those of a poor axe murderer, so I have little social credibility for my poor judgements.

I have just read a book about one particular medical misadventure. I was fairly shocked at the fanaticism of the central medical professional. However, what struck me on looking through the book a second time, was that the horrific outcome was only able to occur, through the weaknesses of the many other professionals involved.

In fact, I think that is the important conclusion. All of us make serious mistakes at some point in our lives. Nothing ventured, nuffink gained.

But what really affects our life outcomes, isn’t the number of mistakes made, but the quality of the process by which they are brought to our attention, the quality or how quickly we can sweep it all under the carpet, or turn around and constructively address these mistakes.

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.
