    It seems that feminist forces have been working hard to sabotage this Summit. In the past when confronted about men’s issues feminists have replied that their focus is on women’s issues and that men will need to attend to their own. However, when men do the feminists now use violence in various forms to try to stop them. We hope you will join this Summit and show the country that men will not be stopped.

    Hi, is registration required prior to the event if it’s free?

  4. Ministry of Men's Affairs says:

    James, #3: It would help with catering for morning and afternoon teas, but if you were to just turn up on the day we’re sure you would be welcome.

  5. triassic says:

    The Miramar Golf Club is unique in that you can play a round of golf provided that no balls are on the course!

  6. Jerry says:

    Hey Kerry, is my daughter welcome to attend? Thing is women who do not agree with feminism and are not recognised, acknowledged by the feminists. They actually fall outside all recognition except in the MENZ movement. She cannot help being female, but her ordeal is much like many of us males share.
    In this country, if you don’t agree with feminism, then you are nobody, don’t count and are utterly dehumanised – that happens to females too. She lives handy to the MENZ Summit and could gen me up later about it.
    As for me, I can’t come. Yes distance and money are inconvenient, but the main reason is a pals son has just got tangled in the family caught, with police and is having custody issues. And yes his property is being taken. Thats just happened, and its all swirling him right now. So I’ll stay handy in case I can help.
    But of course I have recommended he joins MENZ because most here know a lot more than I do and have more up to date experience too. I reckon when he has a moment’s respite, he will join up.

  7. Ministry of Men's Affairs says:

    Jerry: Yes, your daughter and any women are welcome to attend. Assoc Prof Louise Dixon gave a good talk at the last Summit about the research she had done on male victims of domestic violence.

  8. Ministry of Men's Affairs says:

    DJ Ward #8: Yep, and one starts to see how the Summit has been sabotaged but that won’t stop it. Of course, the feminists deny any involvement and we all know feminists never tell lies.

  9. Jerry says:

    Wasn’t Bob McCroskie a speaker at the Men’s Summit?
    I think he is a sexist biased sick mongrel too. Truth is females are just as “mongrel” in their own way, as males are. For McCriskie fo focus on males only and denigrate us in that way is sick. Why does he not also deal with the crooked females too if he really is about putting FAMILY FIRST? In my opinion this guy has no integrity and deserves no respect.

  10. Downunder says:

    You try and talk to McCroskrie about separated men, Child Support, and similar issues and he won’t give you the time of day.

  11. voices back from the bush says:

    10, Bob was expected to speak at the Men’s summit but he didn’t have the opportunity due to time constraints, After reading the article you’ve posted Jerry I’m pleased he didn’t waste my time with more offensive “rape culture” accusations.

  12. MurrayBacon says:

    Dear Downunder #11 You have hit the nail on the head:

    You try and talk to McCroskrie about separated men, Child Support, and similar issues and he won’t give you the time of day.

    It is often said that women initiate 70% to 80% of separations.
    Even if Bob is mainly marriage focussed, how does he suggest that forced-separated fathers play a significant and positive role in their children’s upbringing, in the face of evil and culture-less manipulations through child [and spousal” support games and familycaught$ games?
    Constructive debate does need to address the full range of women’s difficulties and men’s difficulties.
    It looks as though Bob is going to doGs.

  13. Downunder says:

    Thank you Mr … bring home the bacon.

  14. Downunder says:

    You might ask if they initiate that option for a personal gain or a better relationship.
