The No Vote Option

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 9:52 am

As indicated in recent news articles, less people are interested in voting.

I find that understandable, given the behaviour of politicians and political parties.

Likewise the older generation cling to our roots, with various versions of …

“If you didn’t vote you don’t have the right to complain.”

Your right to complain is only that you can protest?

Would it be sensible to have a no vote option?

Meaning … none of you deserve my vote, it is worth more than what you are proposing.

The protest vote, the people’s voice, the right to tell them … to shape up or leave the building.

New Zealand Ghettos aka Social Housing

Filed under: General — Julie @ 6:21 pm

A huge amount of men in New Zealand are in need of community support, i.e., social housing, foodbanks, etc, etc, and I think that many men become aware, i.e., swallow the red pill, when they reach out for community support and find it non-existent or lacking. (more…)

Misandry Rules Labour

Filed under: Gender Politics,General — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 9:12 pm

With Helen Clark’s feminist agenda still driving misandrist anti-male policy in the Labour Party it comes as no surprise a new childless feminist, Jacinda Adern, has won control, claim the Ministry of Men’s Affairs (MoMA).
MoMA is a community group because successive governments have neglected the voice and welfare of men and boys. They believe New Zealand’s social policy and law is now powerfully biased against males. This has been promoted through the Ministry for Women with well over $100 million of taxpayer money. It was heavily funded in the Clark era. No balancing Ministry for Men exists. No such substantial resource has been given to the concerns of the male half of the population. (more…)

Tool to Help in Your Voting

Filed under: General — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 10:54 am

We found this tool in which you choose your views and preferences about matters and these are compared with the policies to tell you which party’s policies are most in line with your views. Seems reasonably based and quite fun:

White Men Alleged to Support Forced Under-aged Prostitution

Filed under: General — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 5:31 pm

This prominent article in the NZ Herald told us that “social researcher” Natalie Thorburn “released disturbing findings” such as that “Girls just 12 years old were often groomed by boyfriends who eventually forced them into a situation where they had no option but to sell their bodies”.

Ms Thorburn also claimed that “A 9-year-old girl was tied to her bed by her mother and forced to have sex with men” and that the youngsters had told her about being forced to submit to sex. (more…)

Labour’s policy remains guilty unless you can prove you are innocent

Filed under: General — Lukenz @ 1:38 pm

Guilty until proven innocent

With 20 years jail in the balance, when will National publicly as Labour to clarify this policy.

Tones of Fathers Day

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 12:31 pm

Recollections of Father’s Day from older men might be a curiosity to younger readers.

For me, being the youngest in the Family, I recall the annual presentation of a white porcelain tea cup with pictures of old cars – we’re talking Model T Fords and Chrysler convertibles, just to be clear, not old bombs.

The modern perception of this annual religious fervour might have us as a bunch of tosspots following in some Old English custom. But it suited a man who didn’t like a lot of fuss, added to his valued collection, and reminded him daily his children had paid their annual respects in person.

Author Wants Stories About Fatherhood

Filed under: Law & Courts — JohnPotter @ 9:48 am

My name is Bill Clarke.

I am writing a book about fatherhood and I want to interview dads. I am interested in hearing their STORIES – about their fathers, or their own story of “Dads in distress” or “Dads in success” in raising their children.

Parent but not a mother

Filed under: Law & Courts — Chris @ 5:32 pm

So as a man in his mid 40’s I had pretty much resigned to the fact that I was not going to become a father. I discovered that one partner I had for a few years was proud of her 11 abortions… shortly thereafter I gently tippytoed away from the secondary school teacher in a boys school in West Auckland. After that my next partner of 18 months announced she was pregnant, I knew she was before she told me, but she is so utterly impractical that she almost had to deliver to find out. Roll forward 3 years. We have a boy, she slept with some lucky bloke and I guess the guilt made her have to let me know, we were over. He can have her. (more…)

Openess is the Cure

Isn’t that a blow to the Banks

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 6:38 pm

John Banks, known to some of us as a passionate supporter of Fathers, refused a DNA test.

If you were a father, would you not want to know?

Help me out here, is the estate, or pride, or something, more important than your own offspring.

I’m having a bit of trouble with this one, especially after my personal interactions with this political force.
