Latest DV response

Thu 27th September 2007:

The police shooting and killing of a man in Christchurch last night appears to be another tragic example of the DVA’s principles in action. The police were called to a domestic indicent and no doubt followed their current guidelines as demanded by feminist groups including Wimmin’s Refuge. They will have treated him immediately as a […]

WARNING to all men

Thu 20th September 2007:

I draw readers’ attention to our laws on unlawful sexual connection. Note particularly the section on consent, which seems to allow almost any situation to be defined as unlawful. If you are considering having sex with someone (I will assume for this posting it is a woman), keep in mind the following information.

We don’t yet know all the details about the case of “Pumpkin”, the little Chinese girl whose father abandoned her in Melbourne on his way to the US.

Support for the women regarding child support

Affairs expanded and given more power and funding under National, as they try to? gain the Women’s vote that they believe cost them the last election.? ___________ “Anyone who considers that women […]

More Double Standards

Fri 14th September 2007:

An article in the Herald yesterday entitled “Teen, 16, in violent tiff with lover, 42” highlighted the gender double standards and female privilege applied by police, Courts and the media.

Groupthink – how safe are we from it?

I am concerned that the MENZ website group may be suffering from Groupthink? The following description is extracted from Wikipedia: Groupthink is a type of thought exhibited by group members who try to minimize conflict and reach consensus without critically testing, analyzing, and evaluating ideas. During Groupthink, members of the group avoid promoting viewpoints outside […]

Oh Colin James….

Wed 12th September 2007:

Oh Colin James…..She still walks the furrowed fields of your mind…..oh yeah, come in Kenny Rogers. The senior moments are coming more frequently in the extending mid life crisis of Colin James.

Tue 11th September 2007:

The Femugabi Regime.

With the Electoral Finance Bill, being dumped on parliament amid the flailing clutches at power by a desperate feminist regime, we have some solid objection from the electorate. The injustice they say. What hasn’t been realised in the past, by many people, is the reality of what has been happening in the Family Court and […]
