Grace Millane Tragedy Exploited by Feminists

Filed under: Domestic Violence,Gender Politics,General,Law & Courts,White Ribbon Campaign — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 1:27 pm

Our heartfelt empathy goes out to the family and associates of Grace Millane. Losing one’s child must be one of the most traumatic experiences humans can face. The unpleasant circumstances of Grace’s case can only serve to increase the pain and devastation.

Much of the NZ population has experienced deep sadness, shame and anger. Grace died in NZ when she should have enjoyed her travels. A representative of NZ has been charged with her murder.

The Ministry of Men’s Affairs would rather not discuss this case at this time. It seems insensitive to do so. However, male-denigrating people have shown no such restraint and some response is necessary. (more…)

Snoopy’s Day

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 12:26 pm

Look, there’s got to be something better to do than whipping each other with one-eyed feminists.

Thank God it’s the 1st December and we can all pull out our treasured version of Snoopy’s Xmas

If you haven’t got your own, hit the link and enjoy a YouTube treasure.
[With lyrics]

“With Snoopy dead in his sights
He pulled the trigger up tight
Why he didn’t shoot
Well, we’ll never know
Or, was it the (Xmas) bells
From the village below?”

It’s an interesting storyline … Honourable gentlemen who put their differences aside for Christmas?

What’s your take on it?

But, when it comes to Christmas have you got one of those one-eyed feminists who wants to use the children to whip you at Christmas time?

You know the sort? (more…)

The Spinoff For Women

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 12:03 pm

In a post yesterday The Female Funding Failure we took a top down look at the Feminist concept of throwing money at the development of women and its perverse rather than positive outcomes. Comments there already are bringing that down to a local level and the direct effect on New Zealand society and the form that takes in our country.

One might liken this to Feminism using the State in the same way as a ‘Family Estate’ and that should be discussed separately.

Another recent discussion (more…)

The Female Funding Failure

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 11:14 am

Older observers will/may recall their youthful beginnings, their adventure into the world, and the road or perhaps the hard road to finding their place in society.

Work to your strengths. Do what you love and never work a day in your life. Describe it how you like there was still an expectation and I think only a very few did not accept the obligation to at least attempt success in some form.

Then, there were changes. Life for young boys, young men became different. We are aware of that, we’ve seen it, we see how much harder it is to make a beginning in this strange new environment today, than it was for us.

And life changed for girls: (more…)

GIRLS WITH NO DADDY…

Filed under: General — mama @ 4:28 pm

I can’t imagine what life might have been like without my father in my life.

I certainly can’t imagine life with just my mother.

My Father:..strong, reliable, busy, had a lot of friends, stalwart of a community, farmer, cop, publican, fencer, not the hobbyist guy..good with his hands,..no, but the range of his skills was quite amazing.

My Mother:..caring and loving, busy and the household seemed to run itself, amazing household skills, animal husbandry, butter maker baker and cook, clothing manufacturer for the family, charity worker, lovely lady, lovely Mother.

Together they achieved much, separately nigh on impossible.

We talk so about the effect of Fatherless Boys.

What about the Fatherless Girls?

My Granddaughter is out there without a Dad. I wonder if she is okay.
Do I consider her situation stable, I can not say I do, I wonder if she is okay.

A ‘Lawyer for the Child’ told us of the statistics and that if she did not have her Father in her life, then that may well lead her down the track of looking for a Father Figure, setting her up for teenage pregnancy, but apparently I don’t have to Clementinewell worry ’bout that.

Are the Girls OKAY?

The What if of The Big IF

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 12:25 pm

Carrying on from a previous post Intersectional Feminism – A Man’s View I’m not sure about you but I have at least one question.

Is this an argument of convenience?

If the current Feminist design is to reject individual females who may have been successful in their own right, does this continue what appears to be an established process of the selective analysis of their history, where they cherry pick what suits their agenda.

Political Feminists are quick to have (more…)

We have no problem with her speaking whatever she wants and her stupid ideolgy but for someone like her, who has a significant history of sexism inciting violence against men and to use our council venues to do so is NOT acceptable and humiliating for mens and boys.

We should not tolerate with violence !

We’re holding a peaceful demonstration on Tuesday 27th Nov at 6.30pm infront of Freeman’s Bay Community Hall. So please come and join us. Also feel free to contact Phil Goff –

Join us this Tuesday at Freeman’s Bay Community Hall or plz send an email to Phil Goff phil.goff@aucklandcouncil.govt.nz to cancel this event using the council venues.

Sunday Thoughts for Men

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 11:46 am

In a world that can’t stop writing, talking, thinking, you’re here on the net, perhaps connected to other social media, thinking about a selfie perhaps – is that a man thing?

Or is the face off in a women’s world a slap in the face for men?

Has that narcism turned men into shrinking violets?

A world that demands the right to emotional sensitivity, hiding behind emotional intensity but says you should not harden up you should open up. Is that a mixed message we’ve been brightsided with?

In a world that says average is a thing; it’s okay to be average, but grow into a world that demands perfectionism from men although there is no right answer – are we confused about that?

To hell with it, it’s just easier (more…)

Another Sexist Law On The Way

Filed under: Gender Politics,Gender Wage Gap — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 8:05 am

Currently before Select Committee is the latest piece of gender discriminatory legislation that will undoubtedly be passed by the feminist government. The Bill is unashamedly gender specific and sexist. For example:

13C Employee may raise pay equity claim
(1)
An employee of an employer, or a group of employees who perform the same, or substantially similar, work for an employer, may raise a pay equity claim if that employee or group of employees considers that the claim is arguable.
(2)
A pay equity claim is arguable if—
(a)
the claim relates to work that is predominantly performed by female employees; and
(b)
it is arguable that the work is currently undervalued or has historically been undervalued.

I.e., the legislation is gender-specific and intended only to benefit women. Its provisions are not available to the many men who believe their low-paid role is or has historically been undervalued. (more…)

Ardern and Little Don’t Want to be Unfair

Filed under: Gender Politics,General,Law & Courts — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 7:32 am

Aw, isn’t that nice, our government doesn’t want to be unfair! Of course, that doesn’t apply to any of the many men treated unfairly on the basis of false allegations especially in the Family Court, or the many men whose hard-earned assets are plundered courtesy of our ‘relationship property’ law, or the many men having their financial lives and ability to parent their own children ruined through having to pay so-called ‘child support’ to fund the lifestyles of women who trashed them and their family units, or the many men dragged through a Court process that squeezes every possible dollar from them on the basis of distorted memories comprising historical allegations allowed to proceed because the statute of limitations was changed specifically to stomp on men, or the many men who commit suicide while our government bodies paid to address suicide steadfastly refuse to address male suicide, or the many men slandered as a group by feminist propaganda. No, our virtue-signalling politicians will continue to turn a blind eye to unfairness towards men. Amend that, they will be looking for ever more inventive ways to be unfair towards men. (more…)

Intersectional Feminism – a man’s view

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 12:23 pm

Warning: participation is not recommended if you value your sanity.

In a recent post The Social Purity of Feminism we can see how much the cutting edge of Feminism has changed its relationship with the society around it. It is sometimes hard to see how much we were already a Feminist compliant nation before the radicals of the 1970s disturbed the peace and blamed the Patriarchal-West.

Looking back to the speech in this comment on the post 125 Years of Feminist Stupity we can see how these ‘Third Wave Feminists’ have made selective interpretations of their Herstory to support this current agenda, and supposedly some continuity of original beliefs.

So, we’re left puzzled (more…)

The Social Purity of Feminism

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 11:35 am

What wave are we up to now, and are you confused about what Feminists want?

What is pure Feminism these days?

There probably isn’t a single answer but rather a range of ideological voices laying claim to the banner, and you’re welcome to carry the banner, if you’re on our side or you’re anti-male or if your campaign can co-exist without offending our general principles, this last one being the sucker punch for the naive young man, or an invitation to any other Johnny whatever you’ve become lately.

And they defend their territory – I’ve written before about (more…)

PUBLIC DISSING OF MEN…seems to be a fashion,,

Filed under: General — mama @ 9:49 am

Yesterday , listening to the radio, there was a father talking to his son, about growing up , the father breached the subject of erection in a silly way so as to embarass his son but their conversation was interrupted by a civil defence alert via a mobile phone..so this talk, which was supposed to be funny was to bring our attention to a civil defence warning.

Sometimes I have to wonder who comes up with this stuff and assuming this was a government funded advertisement for the safety of it’s people I found it insulting in the nature of it’s content.

Why are things so hell bent on putting Men down.

‘Snapped’ tv series worth a watch

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

‘Snapped’ is an interesting tv series shown on the free-to-air ‘Bravo’ channel. Although suffering from American production style with too much repetition, it’s quite well done in general, not too hyped up, very factual, including real footage of police interviews and detailed descriptions of the police investigations and evidential developments.

The series focuses on murders of men committed by women, usually wives or partners but sometimes boarders or women whom the murdered men were helping out. (more…)

Greedy Thief is a Strong Female Lead

Filed under: Gender Politics,General,Law & Courts — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 10:41 am

This was done as a comment to an historical post here but deserves its own current post.

This article describes further developments regarding the ‘accidental millionaire’ case described in the 2011 post on MENZ Issues that provided a snapshot of then current evidence for the operation of a ‘pussy pass’. The pussy passes for the thief Ms Hurring at that stage had been the media’s use of the term ‘accidental millionaire’ as a way of trivializing her offending, and the Chinese government’s blind eye to a wanted female that they would never have shown to a wanted male.

Although Ms Hurring played a full role in the offending for example by transferring money overseas and spending it, she received nine months home detention compared to her male co-offender Mr Gao’s sentence of almost 5 years imprisonment. Unbelievable but so predictable.

Now around $3 million of our taxes through NZ on Air has been provided to produce a ‘telefeature’ using Ms Hurring as “a strong female lead” to provide us with “the reasons behind her actions” and to tell the “such a great story” about her offending.

Is there something wrong with popularizing and enriching someone on the basis of criminal offending? Yes of course there is but when it’s a female offender, no worries. We can all laugh it off, respect her as being a brave, strong female and listen to the justifications for her greed and thievery.

The photos accompanying this article show the smiles of everyone around Ms Hurring presumably coming out of the Court at some point. Ho ho ho isn’t it funny when a woman commits serious crimes?

We will wager a bet that the telefeature will avoid consideration of Ms Hurring’s sentencing pussy pass, except perhaps directly or indirectly trying to justify it.

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…)
