Boys are the new girls

extract: Now we are the spent gender. Reduced to recycling Russian brides, watching sport and wondering where it all went wrong. Eschewed by a smarter, sassier sister who proves that she can do anything, including us. For a male these are indeed desperate and dangerous times.


  1. Another champion for our cause who needs to be kept in the loop?

  2. Not a spent force just yet Michael laws some of us still have our parts firmly intact which gives the strength to fight on until our gender can show that sassier sister what equal rigts is all about in all aspects of life including govenment and law.!

  3. Mr. Law ia a weak defender. Men are more instinctual? Wrong, Mr. Law. Men are more combustible, so their instincts and emotions (anger) are seen on display, for they are direct. Emotions are found more with the women, but they are indirect in their application (outside of the men’s craving for sex). Women are ruled by fear. So how do we see fear? Look at how the state bends over backwards to remove it and you will see who controls the strings(not the pants).

    Hollywood is the opposite place to find men rankers; it is the women’s world(make-up, posing etc. please!). Peter Jackson’s fatal flaw is he is fat. Note a women’s endless concern. We need to stop looking to girlie institutions to tell us what a man is! Mr. Jackson came, saw and took. New Zealand needs more Jacksons and less weak definitions of men.

  4. Such a defeatist quote, and lack of strength.
