MENZ Issues: news and discussion about New Zealand men, fathers, family law, divorce, courts, protests, gender politics, and male health.

Above the bottom line.

For some reason I can’t make comments on Menz, so I will post this, because I it is important to teach society what the individual reality is. It was intended as a comment to the bottom line.

I remember writing a comment a while back to this effect. When you look at what a person describes, ask yourself where it happened. In the home, in a lawyer’s office, in the family court, at a Police Station, an IRD admin review and so on. The operative word here is isolated: without an audience, in secret, away from the public eye, without a process of accountability. It is an invisible wall in society that is as real as the Berlin wall, and probably twice as effective, because it is transparent but so many people still can’t see through it.

Feminism has hidden its foot soldiers in the noblest of professions. We just have trouble accepting that the people we would normally trust can often be a ruthless enemy.

  3. For some reason I can’t make comments on Menz

    Commenting was disabled temporarily by the webhost on Monday because the form was being submitted by a spambot every few seconds and their mailserver had become overloaded.

    I have installed the Bad Behaviour plugin which hopefully will take care of this in future. The log reports 8,671 blocked attempts since then!

    It is now possible some commenters may be incorrectly stopped by this script – if necessary I can add your name to a whitelist.

    Please contact [email protected] if you have suddenly lost the ability to comment.
