Labour and Green’s profiles on Bebo

Thu 29th May 2008:

Oh, this is quite cute. Helen Clark’s Bebo page What a shame. You have to sign in to get political information about the polls from her. Maryan Street has the best one. You can check anyone’s criminal records on her advertisement above her page. Sue Bradford, well she is just telling us what we already […]

Maryan Street has come a long way

Minister of Housing Maryan Street, under pressure for exorbitant spending of taxpayers’ money, has come a long way since 1981 when she was a teacher at Westlake Girls’ High School. (Herald 28th May) Back then she was a lesbian activist prominent in the Feminist Teachers group who were busily spearheading the push to abolish corporal […]

Women, Child and Family Service

Wed 28th May 2008:

I noticed a job advertisement in the local paper for the Bay Of Plenty District Health Board concerning a position in the “Woman, Child and Family Service”. Notice anything? Well, it struck me as leaving out one slightly important member of the family and I wondered what the aim of the service could be. Turns […]

Turner: Police policy bias contributing to false arrests?

Recent ‘not guilty’ verdicts in high profile child homicide cases could be examples of an ideological bias in police policy, according to UnitedFuture deputy leader, Judy Turner. Mrs Turner refers to the ‘New Zealand Family Violence Policy’, in which section 47 instructs that, “The specific offence ‘Male Assaults Female’ will be used in most circumstances”. […]

Human Rights Issues For Men And Boys

Date: 01/05/2008 Introduction Men and boys, who make up 49% of the New Zealand population, fare better than women and girls in a number of human rights areas. These include employment participation and income, and representation in leadership and governance roles. In others, they are disproportionately represented in negative outcomes and statistics. These include significantly […]

Child Support is government tax

Tue 27th May 2008:

Too many people here are misunderstanding child support. Where did it come from? Why are Governments so invested in it? Why are they so determined to get it and what is it used for? Child support was designed to get back tax for welfare payments made to single mothers raising their children on state care. […]

A documentary on Child Support

One of the best ways to get change to come about is to use the media, and change needs to come about.  It seems to me that those that are leading our country are a long way off solving the problems that hound us with Child Support.  No matter if you are a liable parent […]

Ministry of Male Denigration

Fri 16th May 2008:

Gender-political corruption accompanies the favouritism, financial and employment corruption recently uncovered in the Immigration Service. On National Radio today Immigration lawyer Ms Olinda Woodroffe exposed a case in which the NZ Immigration Service in Samoa assisted a woman to remove her two young children to NZ without the father’s agreement. (Hear it here or if […]

Does anybody know?

Thu 15th May 2008:

Does anybody know what percentage of protection orders issued are for the protection of men? Also, of the protection orders issued to women, what percentage is for women without any children? I suspect that not many women from a childless relationship apply for protection orders. Am I right on this? I also suspect that it […]

Time for a boycott?

Tue 13th May 2008:

I am still finding the Family Court is very much tilted in favour of the woman. Consider protection orders. In Australia they expire after a year or two depending on type. Here they last forever unless you can persuade a judge to discharge it. I am making my third attempt in 5 years to get […]

Churches bash males now that they are under feminists control

Pastors, Don’t Use Mother’s Day to Bash Dads By Paul Coughlin, Crosswalk Contributor A learning season is upon us, and it’s worth our time to heed its teaching. This lesson is the difference between how we handle Mother’s Day compared with Father’s Day in church. If it’s like in years past, it won’t be pretty. […]

Rape – radio talkback on the Layton Smith show

I drove half way to work this morning when I heard a talk back issue on the National Radio Station about rape and the new laws where when a woman drinks she is raped. There will be no consideration for the man. None what so ever. Not one thing he says will be relevant. It […]
