Three Beers Jim

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 5:05 pm

It might have been just another tradie’s shop – they’re a dime a dozen, aren’t they?

He was a drummer in a band, quite a story he owned, with a feminist wife and a couple of confused kids.

But Jim, (more…)

he always says “IT’S GREAT TO BE A GUY”…..

Filed under: General — mama @ 8:15 am

YEp…My GUY,,, he always reverts to this staple sentence.

Adversity, Stress, Business..even when those things get in the way, he get back up, I do not hear him blaming, shaming..no, he is an analyzer.

Here recently the subject of hormone/chemical bodily response and reaction was talked about, I thought WOW, so that explains it.

” WHY IT’S GREAT TO BE A GUY “….

I suppose some years from now these bodily chemicals become the new drugs….

Abortion at a Woman’s Whim

Filed under: Child Support,Gender Politics,General,Law & Courts — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 12:52 pm

Abortion tends to become an endless moral debate and this has previously been discouraged here. However, recent proposals by the NZ Law Commission deserve some consideration of this matter and its relevance to men.

The Law Commission has long been a feminist force forwarding the exploitation and harming of men. In addition to their proposal to make men pay alimony to the women who betrayed them and/or trashed their children’s family units, the Commission has also invented three options for changing abortion law. All three options treat fathers as totally irrelevant. It seems likely that the Labia-led government will enact one of these options unless there is very loud objection.

The lack of respect and importance accorded to fathers was already evident in this government’s earlier decision to make it ok for women to refuse to name a baby’s father. (more…)

Family Income Sharing Arrangements – FISA – NZ Divorce

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 10:17 am

Currently under consideration by the Law Commission, (FISA) may become a permanent part of our Divorce Settlement legislation.

Following the leading Herald article in their media feed authored as described;

Submissions and concerted action about Crown accountability

I know this site has some great minds and maybe a few retired people that can dedicate a substantial amount of time for the benefit of others.

I think, in my not so humbled mind that what we need is a dedicated working group to offer submissions on all things affecting the population of NZ.

This group can (more…)

I FEEL LIKE A BIT OF A DICK….

Filed under: General — mama @ 10:23 pm

You know that feelin, when you feel like a bit of a dick,
you’ve said too much, too little, so inarticulate that you may have buried yourself, kinda feelin…
OH SHIT I am here again, I feel like a bit of a dick.
but this is a gooood thannnngggg, this is shitting yourself around, 325 degrees if necessary, get your S—T together or else BRO.

The RACE to gathering PACE….

Filed under: General — mama @ 7:33 pm

Rapid change is on the menu like never before, it is like a grab, a stab, use a fork if you must but feast you will. I am talking about a world that is lead in gathered fashion, a grab of what sectors of society wish for and aim to get. Minority groups abound, they want, they get, and you cannot hear yourself for the sound.
I guess I am old now, in the scheme of things but I will not bow to the dropping of etiquette and needing of syndicate, for the tallest of beings or build that we call historic, I pray (more…)

Living With InJustice

Filed under: General — mama @ 11:40 am

Is to be on your knees,
Being a SURVIVOR of this one is to be a SURVIVOR of victimisation for sure,
SURVIVING such a thing as this take guts, moral fibre, faith?, and all those wonderful things,
These things may not be easy to find on your own and you WILL need BACK UP,
But there is no boot camp for this one, no resolution, no respite, but to forget….forget about the people who used to be in your life??..the life you used to have????
“Just get over it, start a new”, you hear them say.
So you just look forward to another day, so you know there is one more day down, not one more day toward anything in particular, just one more day down.

THE SAME DAMN THEME…..

Filed under: General — mama @ 6:36 pm

Those whom have been apparently blind to a swell of mis-truths and dangerous exaggerations in recent times will surely be starting to see, these the judges and lawmakers….

It would be great to think that big change could be made, you know to say, a more european family style court system, if it were to go this way it would take substantial time I am sure.

The question is, (more…)

Mansplaining – a uniquely postmodernist concept

Filed under: Gender Politics — JohnPotter @ 5:45 pm

Quillette writer Michael Aaron discusses the importance of understanding that the left/right political dichotomy no longer applies, and that there are now three distinct political viewpoints: postmodern, modern, and traditional.

His explanation of the postmodernist term ‘mansplaining’ might offer some clues as to why our efforts to communicate the issues men face have largely been unsuccessful.

Announcement: Men’s Summit 2019 in Dunedin

Filed under: General — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 10:53 pm

Organisers of the NZ Men’s Summit invite those interested in the welfare of men, fathers, boys and their friends to the Otago University Rugby Clubrooms on Friday 12 April next year.

Speakers and workshops will address important issues affecting the well being of males. This significant forum, with a working lunch, in a venue overlooking the Oval offers an opportunity to socialise afterwards and enjoy a weekend in Dunedin.
You are urged to join the pro-male network striving for a more gender-balanced and harmonious society.  Most are aware of the neglect and abuse of men’s rights with suicide, depression, false allegations, family injustice, defathering, health defaults, educational failings and media bias delivering greater numbers of dysfunctional episodes involving males.
Men’s groups continue to engage with politicians, agencies and NGOs. New Zealand First is preparing Parental Leave for Fathers. Shared Parenting must also become law. A Ministry for Men will balance input into policy and legislation.
These and other important issues will arise at the Men’s Summit. 
A full programme including registration details and costs will be available before the end of the year.
Put NZ Men’s Summit 2019, Friday 12 April. Otago University Rugby Clubrooms in your diary and plan to be there
Men Matter Too!

Effectively Resisting the Feminist Juggernaut

Filed under: General — Audi Alteram Partem @ 10:35 pm

Instead, we would like to see many more thoroughly violent responses from men when feminist violence is done to them.

This excerpt is from MoMA’s original post on Jamie Lee Ross.

Many on this site have advised that we can learn a lot from the “old hands”. With them making quotes like that I’m not so sure that there is much of anything useful to learn at all.

Yes, yes, I know (more…)

There’s a dangerous problem with the Believe Survivors movement

Filed under: General — Lukenz @ 7:33 pm

News Article Link

I do not think I have ever seen a news article where the reporter was fearful enough to put “Name Withheld”. Mostly reporters like to receive recognition, appreciation and industry respect for writing newsworthy features. Indeed, I am surprised the Editor published this piece.

The publishing of comments against the “believe survivors movement” and the overwhelming positive thumbs up is astonishing. Politicians should take note how many votes there are for change.

Well done to the writer editor and positive comment writers. Brave enough for the time being. Hopefully next time the reporter will put their name to it.

#MenToo

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 7:44 am

Did the shit have to get to the top before the reality sunk in for some people, or perhaps they sunk into it, might be a better analogy.

This could be the year, and it would be a strange one if the first year of the Labour government after Hellengrad saw the emergence of a #mentoo movement.

Jami-Lee Ross vs Feminist Violence

Filed under: General — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 11:24 pm

While we may be critical of Mr Ross’ disloyal attempts to sabotage his leader and party (and probably other individual parliamentarians in the near future!) and/or we may also see him to some extent as suffering abuse for brave whistle-blowing, we applaud the fact that he has not rolled over and accepted feminist mischief against him.

The gender issue in this saga has not been highlighted much in media, but it has probably been the main catalyst for recent developments as made clear in some news reports like this one. Ross may well have leaked information about Bridges’ electoral spending, though the standard of proof for this seems only marginally better than the total lack of proof routinely used by the Family Court to wreck the lives of men and their children. However, his full-on war now is in response to feminist violence. (more…)

Undisclosed Drug Use

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 6:04 pm

The female of the species is well known for hiding what they think you may not like in order to get the attention of a male.

Leaving aside alcohol and cigarettes, there are other addictions that are disruptive and sometimes dangerous within relationships.

Meths use amongst females is perhaps more obvious but sugar and food addictions and prescription drugs perhaps less obvious.

What are your experiences of hiding drug use or other addictions in relationships?

Perhaps you have been the guilty party or someone close to you.

Meditation..no not mediation..”MEDITATION”

( only one named mama could get away with a post like this here,,so here goes)

I was talking with people the other day about the great need to look after yourself when you get caught up in the system.
Some people will not have the luxury of time to find wisdom and they need some fast.
You can waste your time and energy going down a track that can lead to hopelessness.
Getting in touch with yourself as soon as you can could give you the best chance of choosing the best path for you.
It is not that you want to go to court with a bleeding heart, you want them to see that you have one and that it is in the right place.
Get quiet, meditate, meditate to music, go to a place where you can talk to yourself and breathe, just breathe… Faith Hill..

Court Favouritism Towards Females

Filed under: Gender Politics,General,Law & Courts — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 10:38 am

While over the last year or two there have been some cases in which women were sentenced comparably to men, that remains a rare exception. Here’s a case in the news today. Compare that with this very similar case in which it was a father who responded to his child’s bully with a mild physical response. Neither the man nor the woman appeared to have any previous convictions. The man’s offence was even less blameworthy than the woman’s, in that his bullied son was a special needs child and the news article implied that he only shoved the bully whereas the woman pulled the bully by the hair, hit her several times around the face and caused bruising. But she was a woman so was discharged without conviction. Having a penis appeared to disqualify the man from having the Court consider the effects of a conviction and sentence on his future travel plans and life, whereas being a woman appeared to make those things suddenly important enough to protect her from even a conviction.

GIVE IT MEL’LALLDE…..Melania and me…

Filed under: General — mama @ 8:40 pm

I can imagine that people have reserved feeling /perception for Mrs Trump, First Lady and Statuesque Lady at the side of the President of the United States.
I did have a smirk at her expense when observing for the third time her punished look of despair at having to be ‘the public office wife’ whilst really all she wants is to be home with Byron, or something else close to her heart. ” A heart you say!”.
I like she is not ‘westernized’, logic before sensation.

Recently she has said things such as, ‘we should not try to change Men’… how direct is that, I am impressed.

A Brief Summary of Some Serious Flaws in the Domestic Violence Act

Filed under: Domestic Violence,Law & Courts — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 11:20 am

1. The DVA requires the Court to determine matters on the standard of ‘proof’ called the balance of probabilities. This may be suitable for legal decision making in some areas and perhaps for a strictly time-limited non-contact order in relationship conflict situations, but it’s inadequate and unjust when used to deprive or limit in ongoing fashion various fundamental rights of accused individuals such as the right to parent one’s own children and even to interact with them, the right to occupy one’s own house and to use one’s own possessions, the right to freedom of movement in the community, the right to freedom of speech and expression, the right to maintain a previously determined firearms licence and possession of firearms and the right to withhold consent to participate in treatment programs.

Suicide: ‘Don’t Mention the Facts’

Filed under: General — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 11:01 am

Almost every article on suicide fails to mention the extent to which suicide is a gender issue, that men have over decades committed suicide around 3 times more often than everyone else. Here’s another one, a good article in most respects. Is it the editors who take out any reference to the gender issue here? Or are the people who write or comment on suicide all so well indoctrinated into political correctness that they automatically avoid mentioning anything that might suggest men are disadvantaged?

Police Proudly Parade Their Anti-Male Sexism

Filed under: General — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 10:48 am

Check out this remarkable news item. Police white-knighting for damsels who are not in distress.

“How do you know she’s consenting?” Apart from the fact she has her tongue in your mouth and her hand down your underpants? A better question might be “How do you know she won’t withdraw her consent retrospectively tomorrow or in 30 years?”, the answer to which will always be “That can’t be known”. One might hope that this police harassment of people going about lawful activity will cause some males to consider joining the MGTOW code, but that seems very unlikely. Most young guys will continue to be ruled by their penis especially after alcohol consumption, and regardless of equal drunkenness will continue to be held exclusively responsible for women’s sexual participation.
