Jordan Peterson changes lives for the better

Filed under: General — triassic @ 10:36 pm

I recently happened to meet a 23-year-old Canadian girl who is visiting New Zealand so I asked her if she knew the Canadian, Jordan Peterson. She said she not only knew of him but had been viewing his videos on YouTube as well as reading his book ‘12 Rules For Life’. (more…)

Next Generation Window Sticker

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 11:05 am

This is doing the rounds on social media and I see the question asked; could it just as easily relate to New Zealand?

Could you see the same sticker on Conservative Party vehicles at the next election?

Professor Jordan Peterson in NZ

I have to put this one forward.

A shameful performance from Iris Krzyzosiak, a representative of Auckland Peace Action when Mr Sean Plunket interviews him.

Paypigs Pay-Pigs or Pay Pigs?

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 10:47 am

Have you heard of Paypigs?

Don’t worry, neither had I but there it was out of the mouths of babe’s … well more like early to mid twenties girls. You could imagine the outcry if it was boys calling girls something along the same lines. It didn’t take too much to gather from the conversation what this hinted at.

Family Violence Act 2018 and Information Sharing

Filed under: General — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 10:56 am

The Family Violence Act 2018 is due to come into force in July. Information sharing is but one part of this law that further abandons fundamental principles of justice and civil rights in favour of feminist ideology and aspirations towards total control over men. Men’s supporters’ submissions were mostly ignored in the creation of this dangerous review of the law. (more…)

A Homeless Report – NZ Style

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 12:18 pm

When the Mayor of Auckland started the Mother-of-all Homeless-count during 2018, it followed along the lines of our historical perceptions – the old men and the occasional woman sleeping rough, usually with an alcohol problem and not keen on any help from the Salvation Army or these days a drug and alcohol rehabilitation programme.

We had a post here for followers to comment on (back in August) although this did not attract a great number of informative comments.

Amongst the modern homeless and less inclined to be referenced by politicians and media is a grey area between a home and the street (that which family and friends call a couch or a garage, a helping hand, an obligation to their own) where a growing number of people whether by choice or otherwise exist in a less acknowledged sector of society.

This particular report relates specifically to (more…)

Campaigning for Mens’ Rights

Filed under: General — mama @ 1:00 pm

Surely it is time for a political party to stand for Men.
Surely the Women of such a party would like their Men.
Since when did politics play nice and fair.
Since when was there a party that did not Dare.

..and Discrimination has already been played and played hard,
now it is time to even the score and use discrimination once more.

Just like in the recent Triassic post the tides are turning,
could we ask for more?

Avoid Women at all Costs

Filed under: General — triassic @ 10:14 pm

This article illustrates the inevitable outcome of the empathetic nonsense that the #metoo was based on. With more women gaining political power comes the danger of policies based on empathy rather than compassionate reasoning. A 1995 study in the Scandinavian Journal of Psychology showed that women involuntarily imitate other peoples’ emotional expressions more than men. This may give them a proclivity to act in ways that are not conducive to the betterment of society. Paul Bloom’s book, Against Empathy: The Case for Rational Compassion, sets out a good case against viewing empathy as a virtue. Empathy and compassion are not synonymous and it’s very important to understand the difference. Listen here for his discussion with #56 Sam Harris – Abusing Dolores. And here #14 — The Virtues of Cold Blood. on this subject.

A New Year Surprise

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 10:48 am

This is published @Stuff.co.nz

Written by; Serafin Dillon (Couples and Family Therapist for Walk the Talk in Nelson)

You may not agree with its entirety and contructive comments I am sure, will attract some interest.

OPINION: Violence, in all its forms, is abhorrent, however, men alone cannot stop violence against women and men alone cannot stop what they cannot see. If it were that simple, we would not be in this position as a nation.

This May or May not be A Stick

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 8:06 am

The Stick.

It’s been a bit quiet on the post front lately and not wanting anyone to suffer confrontation withdrawal syndrome here is something to keep you occupied until the New Year.

On, the other hand, you may wish to take this post seriously and discuss the reasons for arguments and how this might be improved.

Meanwhile Men are doing the Business…

Filed under: General — mama @ 11:12 am

Massive movements are being made and Men are going ahead in the field of alternative vehicles.

We only hear about Tesla really but it is starting to rev up out there.

Could it be that Men are still doing the business and are still by their mere nature of brain and brawn striving to make better what they made previously.
But of course.
What do you know…..,,,reliance, resilience, resounding resource will always come from Man.

But of course even new smart technologies come with great cost, financially absolutely, but we must still mine our asses off to get these new technologies.
Saving the earth? triggering an earthquake, I had suspected but only recently found out that mining can in fact trigger these. So what can humanity do?, stop in its tracks?
No we will go where the money goes,, so for those of us that do not want a bar of that no more, well we can still almost do what we want and take only what we need, lie low and stand tall just being HUMAN, just as human as you want to be.

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.

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…)
