Simon Power, Enemy of Men

Sun 25th July 2010:

Minister of Justice Simon Power has been talking for some time about introducing an inquisitorial system for cases involving child complainants and for complainants in sex crimes. Of course, he uses the ploy of referring to “child victims” and “sex abuse victims” to manipulate the public towards believing that all such complainants are necessarily victims […]

How far will a father go to protect his little girl?

A departing French ambassador to New Zealand…

Wed 14th July 2010:

Dating New Zealand Women A departing French ambassador to New Zealand once commented at the end of his stay in the country that New Zealand women lacked elegance, complaining that they dressed only in black and ‘walk like soldiers’.

Some ideas

Tue 13th July 2010:

I have been giving this Child Support and Family Law question a bit of thought lately. Rather than prattle on about the inequities of our Family and Child Support Laws, which in this forum we all know so much about, I thought I would offer up some ideas about where I think it should go. […]

Men’s rights issues and videos

Thu 8th July 2010:

I came across a couple of interesting short videos on the net that echo the message men give through writing on this site and thought “Hey, cool”. This one (below) is about men choosing surrogacy to become fathers rather than risk losing their children when a mother is involved.
