Gulags for NZ Men

Filed under: Domestic Violence,Gender Politics,General,Law & Courts — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 1:50 pm

Justice Minister Amy Adams and Social Development Minister Anne Tolley this week announced that the government is to provide temporary housing for ‘abusers’ who are ordered out of their own homes through police safety orders and/or protection orders. The reason given is to reduce the likelihood that such ‘abusers’ return to their homes because they have nowhere else to stay, leading to further family violence incidents.

The rhetoric used by Adams is dishonest stereotyping and amounts to propaganda. She refers to the emergency housing as being for “people who commit violence against their partners or families”, “perpetrators of domestic violence” or “abusers”. She refers to those who were allowed to remain in their homes as “victims”.

So how is this dishonest propaganda? (more…)

Calling for Help to Make Video Presentations

Filed under: General — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 8:54 am

MoMA and an experienced tv and film maker are planning to make a series of video presentations for a YouTube channel and other sites, presenting primarily New Zealand men’s perspective on issues of relevance to them. We need help in all stages of this process from filming, editing and distribution, and we are also calling for people who are prepared to be interviewed about their own experiences of ant-male discrimination. See our introductory video clip here and please respond if you can help: https://youtu.be/iPfY5bX7gS4

Appalling sexist journalism from the NZ Herald

Filed under: General — golfa @ 3:55 pm

I’m disgusted by this story. The headline proclaims “Woman killed changing tyre”. When you actually READ the story, you discover that a man was also killed. So TWO people were killed yet the Herald only thinks the death of the woman is important enough to make it into the headline. Dreadful sexist journalism.
