Examples of the Pussy Pass in Action

Fri 24th December 2010:

Here are several incredible examples of the pussy pass, sexist chivalry on display in our criminal justice system.

The Genderisation of Partner Violence

Wed 22nd December 2010:

After reading other members’ contributions I thought you might like to read a presentation I gave at work about what I perceive as a bigotted and sexist attitude towards family violence with social service agencies, the media and society in general. Introduction There appears to be a disturbing trend where males are typecast as the […]

Wake Up

Sun 19th December 2010:

Here is an acoustic version of a song I wrote some years ago and I am just now recording. The mp3 format reduces the sound quality, but anyway, this is the first ever published version of this song.

Board of Shame

Fri 17th December 2010:

Still battling to see my kids via the Family Court. Not even getting a hearing date. I think the system is on its last legs. Just had an idea. Has anybody thought about having a Board of Shame on the internet listing all the mothers that prevent fathers from seeing their offspring? I am interested […]

Critics warn on pregnant mother alerts re abuse

Sun 12th December 2010:

Whilst the public debate about child abuse in NZ has been somewhat distracted by deaths and horrific injuries to a very small number of children, the overall social vandalism of larger numbers of children is perhaps more disabling, in the territory of emotional neglect.

Breach of justice as a Suicide Trigger Please note that I am using justice in the sense of police investigation plus caught hearings. Betrayal of trust can also be seen as being your own worst enemy, by misplacing your trust. Be streetwise! Massive miscarriage of justice By Louise Shorter, from insidetime issue November 2010 Legal […]

Survey on “Prenuptual” Agreements

Sun 5th December 2010:

I am conducting a survey on use and experience of “prenuptual” or relationship property agreements. I would be grateful if you could complete the survey and also if you would pass on the link to other people or groups so that I can get a meaningful sample. I welcome any comments about the survey itself, […]

Should gender studies be scrapped?

Thu 2nd December 2010:

I went back to school as an adult student to study business, with an accounting major in the hope of starting my own business a number of years back. While studying the last papers I phoned my tutor and said I was disappointed because I felt the amount of compulsory social papers took up time […]

Suicide awareness and prevention presentation

Wed 1st December 2010:

I thought I’d put this up here because it’s become a big event and men’s representative Jim Bagnall is presenting something special about fathers plight and suicide and by the looks of it Murray will be video taping the event. Also, I chased up a teenager who left a comment on a post by Mike […]
