New Male Studies: An International Journal

Sat 24th December 2011:

This brand new publication by a group of Australian, Canadian, European and American scholars contains research essays, opinion pieces, and book reviews on all aspects of the male experience.

More “Hysteria”

Sat 17th December 2011:

Full story here: NZ Herald: One in five US women raped Seems our brothers in the USA have been extremely busy defiling their womenfolk – one in five woman now claiming to have been raped. Can this really be true or are we just being exposed to more dribblings from the hystera?

Emily Jane Toner, Crown Prosecutor and Thief

Wed 14th December 2011:

I have made a new post about this because it’s the heading that will come up in internet search engines.

Crown Prosecutor Tries to Avoid Conviction for Theft

Tue 13th December 2011:

The New Zealand Herald has continued its habit of White Knight chivalry by refusing to name the female Crown Prosecutor who was caught deliberately stealing almost $200 worth of groceries by putting them in her own bag, covering them up, then paying for just $11 worth of items that she placed in the supermarket basket.

Some Real Analysis of the Jamie Ginns Story

Tue 6th December 2011:

The violent rampage and suicide of Jamie Ginns over the weekend was extensively covered in the media, but coverage was generally trite and failed to highlight the important issues. Bystanders were asked to desribe the various scenes of mayhem and police were repeatedly challenged about why it took them so long to identify Ginns as […]

Mum was found breastfeeding her baby while high on P

Sat 3rd December 2011:

I don’t know why anyone would be shocked by this. We spend over $1.7 billion dollars on the DPB which we know leads to these outcomes. Why all of a sudden pretend to be shocked?

6 Year Old Boy on felony sex charges

Tue 29th November 2011:

My initial reaction to this headline was to burst out laughing; and then I read the article. Whilst not in New Zealand, with globalization and “trickle down” effects; it could well be a sign of things to come.

Impact of abortion on men

Fri 25th November 2011:

This topic is not discussed sufficiently. Although men are sometimes derided, for getting women into the situation where an abortion may be “needed”, men may experience strong feelings of loss and hurt. If these are not understood, they may come back as psychological problems…. This difficult topic is well covered, in my opinion, on Life […]

White Ribbon Campaign misrepresents the facts

Thu 24th November 2011:

Today’s Herald has one of the best articles about domestic violence that I’ve ever seen published there. Tomorrow is White Ribbon Day. This campaign is the public face of the NZ Families Commission’s shameful support of the radical feminist campaign to demonise and discriminate against men. The only useful function the white ribbon serves is […]

The Ministry of Men’s Affairs

Tue 22nd November 2011:

Kerry Bevin with Craig Jackson set up a pretend ‘Ministry of Men’s Affairs’ in the grounds of parliament about two years ago to highlight male suicide rates. Kerry, Craig and I have now decided to form a group under the banner ‘Ministry of Men’s Affairs’ to distribute press releases etc. We think the title will […]

Woman’s Refuge for Men

Thu 17th November 2011:

I’ve never quite understood why attempts to open a men’s refuge in Auckland a few years ago ran into so much official opposition. It’s never made sense that the taxpayers pump millions of dollars a year into providing temporary accomodation for women victims of domestic violence when overwhelmingly it is men who get removed from […]

‘Half of women’ tell of emotional violence

Tue 15th November 2011:

Full story here: NZ Herald: Half of women tell of emotional violence Just another small step for feminism and a giant leap backward for men. “A family violence expert is calling for a national discussion about relationships after finding that more than half of New Zealand women have suffered psychological and emotional violence from their […]

Angry father smashes up CYF office

Tue 8th November 2011:

Full story here: NZ Herald: Angry father smashes up CYF office It amazes me we don’t see more incidents like this. Whilst none of us condone violent and intrusive actions such as these; it is not difficult to comprehend the aggravation and despair that drove this man to remonstrate against the high handed, totally non-empathetic […]

A Personal Experience of Police Sexism

Sun 6th November 2011:

I attended a protest on Friday in Auckland outside the Family Court, in the hope that it would encourage people to make submissions for the current government review of the Family Court. This review is a very rare opportunity to encourage change. When I arrived at the protest I met another protester there for the […]

The Pussy Pass: An offensive delusion or an accurate term?

Tue 25th October 2011:

Feminism originally claimed to seek equality but it has long been clear that equality is of little real interest to feminists. We seldom hear a single feminist voice acknowledging inequality when it favours women, or even acknowledging the many ways in which men are exploited and discriminated against. It often seems as though feminists see […]

Children gone?

Sun 23rd October 2011:

Need some advice. I live in Aus, children with their mum in NZ. Mother has shifted and refuses to give me any contact details for my children. Children have been told not to give me any information. Mother’s motive is that I am abusive and she wants to protect herself and the kids. What can […]

Ideas for Review of familycaught

Thu 20th October 2011:

Review of familycaught – Ideas for Submissions Although Simon Power’s Review of familycaught was triggered by the need to cut excessive wastage in Government spending, it also opens up the topics of the cost effectiveness and quality of service by familycaught. Many of the issues in familycaught are subtle and based on values that we […]

What has he Dunne?

Thu 6th October 2011:

Dunne: Bill to improve Child Support introduced This is it folks. Read Dunnes spin, there is a link to the bill and supporting documents at the bottom. Then lets analyze it. Focus is on analysing the bill and the policy that drives the taxman : increasing the Child Tax take. Regards Scrap

Gender Inequality in Work Roles

Fri 30th September 2011:

Seldom a day passes without examples of ‘equality’, feminist style. In fact, it’s GENDER INEQUALITY but feminist voices remain silent about it or actively support it, suggesting that equality was never really their goal. For example, look at inequality in men’s sacrifice in their their work roles and more generally in their roles as providers […]

Your child relocated to another city – stories requested

Fri 23rd September 2011:

A NZ journalist would like to her hear from any men who might be willing to discuss publicly their experiences of having their wife and children relocate to another city or country. If you can help, please contact me and I will pass on your details. If you don’t feel able to share your experience […]

I seek a referal to a good lawyer?

Wed 14th September 2011:

Referal is needed for a good lawyer that gets the job done quickly without the usual lengthy drawnout crap and expense. The job: 1. I live in Australia and am seeking contact orders to have my children in Australia during the holidays. 2. I seek to overturn the CAPS order on their passports.

Family court advice sought

Hi, Scuse the long-winded post but I’m basically looking for advice regarding the Family court but quite frankly any advice about my current circumstances would be appreciated. I live in Auckland. My ex-partner of 11 years left home unexpectedly in March 2011 taking our two young children (3 and 7 years old). She said when […]

Feminist Bias in New Zealand Media

Sun 11th September 2011:

Western populations may well be starting to realize that they have been manipulated and misled by feminist lies, rubbish research, distorted accounts of history and often unjustified demands to maintain endless victim status. However, a review of news articles any week of the year shows that NZ is still heavily captured by feminist propaganda and […]

Feminist News in New Zealand

Wed 7th September 2011:

Let’s start with a look at Fran O’Sullivan’s muddled contribution to the Strauss-Kahn affair. What appeared to be her main argument was a valid one but came out only in her closing paragraphs: Strauss-Kahn, one of the most influential people in world finances, had been calling to replace the US dollar as the world currency […]

Child Support Changes A Response.

Tue 30th August 2011:

Peter Dunne, Revenue Minister in a National Government has proposed changes to the Child Support Act. These changes have been the subject of much comment on MENZ. To assist making submissions the Select Committee that reviews this bill, over the next couple of weeks I will post an analysis of the changes and the reason […]
