    Andrew Bolt had a very good interview with Cassie on his show tonight.
    ch 85 Skynews.

    “The Red Pill” was discussed on The Panel just now:


    where it provided the opportunity for Penny Ashton to declare that she “was so sick of the Mens Rights movement”. Penny watched the trailer, so that qualified her to comment on the whole film, which she did by talking about the unrelated – apart from the name – Red Pill subreddit (a pickup artists discussion group). Such ignorant yap. Either ignorant, or perhaps deceitful, one or the other anyway.

    Great stuff!!!
    I remember talking to a MRA (men’s rights advocate) back in 2006 who had recently (then) received an award from the United Nations for his work in the community and he told me caring for men’s rights was a waste of time and energy because he got nowhere advocating for men since the 1970s.

    At the time of his award, he was delivering food parcels to people in need of food and a lot were men. There was simply no support for men, he said. …. He had lost hope.


    Jumping forward, I want to say to [some] in the online community, “I told you there was a men’s movement”, hehe.
    [Some] Men would say, “there isn’t a men’s movement, men’s voices are simply a consequence of the women’s movement” but hey, the women’s movement is simply a consequence too BUT look at what men have been up against (with respect, the same for women). It was inevitable that [the non-radical] men had to get this organized.

    You have my respect, men. ๐Ÿ™‚ This is truly awesome.

    Ahem (wink), I want to say/ask a couple of things to society’s leaders.

    1. From my experience in the community, everything we do seems to have a consequence. Every change whether political or social … When you add something, it has consequences. When you take something away, it has consequences. Thus, the men’s movement, thus, the women’s movement and thus, other movements and people’s reactions.

    With that being said,

    2. I want to encourage the leaders of both the men’s and women’s movements to work together for the sake of society, the people, particularly the innocent children.

    Reason being, because society left to itself isn’t balancing. The people working in the community are jumping from one extreme to another and this is causing havoc, imo. For example, LAWYERS are running amok. They are causing real grief as they fight the arguments of the men’s & women’s movements in court. (I will leave the effect on children to your imagination and ask you think of the criminal court & children as well as the family court). Another example, politicians are making laws that don’t consider the consequences on people. There’s no thought for how people will be affected and imo, having leaders from the men’s & women’s movement caring about people will be really powerful & helpful. And another example, CYFS social workers… not all of course but not balancing affects families.


    3. I don’t think society can balance on their own while they certainly can’t cope with a war between 2 movements. War has casualties and many have already suffered, are suffering and will suffer, from my experience.

    But it can’t be one side wins. The consequences are real.


    4. My suggestion, if you donโ€™t mind me making one, would be to sit and listen to each other. Imo, listening is a skill and if you don’t have it, you can learn it, from my experience. ๐Ÿ™‚ A tip is โ€“ listening means you hear what the other person says and you can relay it back to them.

    Here’s a tale…. I have a radical feminist friend who seemed lost in her belief of men like a radical religious person thinks only their truth is truth. We slugged it out one day and she was armed with as much feminist argument as I was armed with readings from men’s sites.

    Weeks later, she thanked me and told me how she had visited a man in prison for domestic violence and how he had written her a letter that shared his life, the abuse he had suffered as a child and more. She went on to asked me if I could help other radical feminists working in their fields โ€“ but alas, I donโ€™t have the time.

    I can however, point out that professionals can be as childish as their most selfish clients and the leaders from each side donโ€™t have to be radicals โ€“ just look at the men in the video โ€“ they are caring of men, not blaming women.
    Imo, if you give men like these power, you will eradicate the radicals just like if you give balanced women power, they too can eradicate the radicals.

    The author of this movie is just fantastic, young, smart, has come at this from a woman’s advocate perspective but has been surprised by her own research and has been professional to the point of intergreity.

    In one interview she was asked if this work would limit her options in the future. She is confident, honest and replied This is a documentary, it is supposed to be thought provoking and reflect what is there and that is what I have produced.

    Look at how the “rug munchers” have tried to shut this down in Melbourne “so called centre of the arts in Aust” and they just folded.

    Lawyers are running amok in NZ but the Judges are running this country in my view. Their Association has lobbied Parliment re the pecuninary interest bill. ( where by they would have been required to disclose their interests and relationships to ensure no conflict would exist. This is standard inmost countries – but not here. They are supposed to be at arms length totally. So they do it via their association. I guess you could complain to the juducial conduct commissioner but the buck stops there.

    Sir Geoff Palmer has mentioned his concern at his book launch about this sort of thing but with no Privey Council what do we expect?

    How many missed this? The NZ Study no one wants to see.

  7. Alastair says:

    Well put Julie. Listening is a real skill.

    It is a well established fact NON verbal communication is far more powerful than words.

    Remember we have 2 ears but only one mouth
