March for Democracy

Sun 22nd November 2009:

An estimated crowd of more than 4000 packed Auckland’s Queen St yesterday to protest against the Government’s refusal to back a citizen-initiated referenda over the so-called anti-smacking law where 87% of people’s vote was ignored by the government. It was a great atmosphere with drummers, parents with children, and placards. Colin Craig, who funded the […]

Showing Your own Documents to your McKenzie Friend?

Sat 21st November 2009:

Does Self Represented Litigant Need Judge’s Permission to show his own documents to his McKenzie Friend? In England, the familycaught is quite a lot more formal and restrictive on allowing families to solve problems at a reasonable cost. Most UK lawyers milk their clients much harder than most NZ lawyers. Some NZ lawyers equal the […]

Battered husband who snapped

Journalist AN MUNRO over at has written an very sad and detailed article about Anthony Sherna killing his partner after suffering years of abuse and being sentenced to 14 years in jail. For almost 20 years he submitted in order to keep the peace. When she demanded he change his surname to prove he […]

The sad ignorance of some comments

Fri 20th November 2009:

I wrote a post about the UK men’s movement and how men (mostly young men) are speaking up and starting to ask for rights. Men never had any rights. They were also oppressed in society as women were and the gender roles did them no more favours than it did women. They are not asking […]

The rape industry claims another victim – Kevin Driscoll’s story

There’s an interesting rape case being followed on the Internet. It involves an alleged rapist named Kevin Driscoll and an alleged rape victim named Melissa Leahy-Rossow. It’s a very sad reality that many, many young men go through while the rape industry continuously pushes for males to have harsher treatment and women to have lighter […]

Dennis’s In Bed Story -The Sex Tape

This is a sponsored post. I can’t quite figure out why their client is prepared to pay for this, or even what we are being “sold” – perhaps the message is just too subtle for me? Anyway, it seems harmless, and contributions to hosting costs for MENZ are always welcome.

Men’s movement in the UK

UK males are speaking up well on the biased treatment through feminists and their supporters. They have become such a loud voice that the media has been attacked persistently and consistently by large numbers of them, forcing the media to open ‘Pandora’s box’ and speak up about the abuse males receive from females. The greatest […]

Father’s Support Groups

Tue 17th November 2009:

Often groups are asked by fathers if there are father’s supports groups they can be referred to. I thought I would make a list of what is available online and offline and will add as I find more. I needed to find one myself for the Nelson area and came across DIY’s list and have […]

To Men and Women who support this site

Mon 16th November 2009:

Men and Women who support this site and what it stands for, must step up to the mark and tell the FC, lawyers and report writers, that we are united and we are not taking this lying down for one minute longer. It happened this morning while standing in Whangarei Warehouse. My 11 year old […]

Feminism is the Key to “Making of a Slave”

Thu 12th November 2009:

I have for some time focused on conspiracy theories but I have started to just see them as ‘history and the present’ coming together. Through my own interest to understand how the world works I have spoken with many people in New Zealand about past events and I’ve got to say, “We have very interesting […]

Words in Passing.

Tue 10th November 2009:

Words in Passing By Amfortas We were not ready. We were distracted. Exhausted. Battle had taken its toll But the Family survived. The children played. Malevolent Smile. She was Ready. Definite. Ordered. The Blue Pencil, poised, Poisoned, re-defined the land, The familiar, the family, the Form.

Please any advise

Thu 5th November 2009:

We have done all we can to try and prevent the outcome of which is probably going to happen in the next couple of months. Can the FC uplift a child from the day to day carer, who is agreeable with the uplift, and put the child in a foster home when the other parent, […]

Treating non-abductor as though they were the abductor France

Tue 3rd November 2009:

This extract shows the experience of being the left behind parent AND being treated as an abductor by a foreign court, to protect the abducting parent from re-abduction. The guilty party is treated as innocent, the not guilty party is treated as guilty. This backwards ethics results from the lack of cohesiveness between countries legal […]
