Father murder/suicide

Wed 26th February 2014:

Obviously no one could possibly condone the tragic event of Ed Livingstone and his children. In the NZ Herald’s publications highlighting the shortcomings of this father over the past 2 days, and also in all the other reporting since this dreadful event took place I have been unable to find a reason for the protection […]

And news just in from the UK

Mon 24th February 2014:

Unbelievable: It has just been revealed by the Guardian newspaper that the male suicide rate is 3 1/2 times that of the female suicide rate in England.

The dribbling rant of Billy Bragg

Defamation from Feminists is a Serious Crime

Wed 19th February 2014:

We Understand How Colin Craig Feels. We don’t necessarily support his politics. We don’t know whether he gives a damn about the harm done to men, though he probably recognizes the harm to families that has resulted from the denigration of men. However, those who speak up about men’s issues know what it’s like to […]

Media Bias Concerning Family Court

Sun 16th February 2014:

The injustice shown to men over the decades since the inception of the Family Court and the abuse done by that Court to children’s relationships with their fathers (and therefore to the children themselves) have been largely ignored by our media. Exposure of the Court’s sexism against men relied mainly on individual men’s letters to […]

Scollay’s Murder of her Husband is Excused

Thu 13th February 2014:

This case really hits home how little value is given to male victims of women’s violence, and indeed how little value is placed on men’s lives. It also highlights the sexist double standard in our justice system, in this case allowing a de facto partial defence of provocation in the case of a female murderer […]

Melinda Tankard Reist has given public presentations at Forum on the Family, her book Getting Real: Challenging the Sexualisation of Girls and a Sydney Morning Herald article Sex sells, but we’re selling out our […]

Proactive, Passive, By Chance, or Destructive Government Management of Child Abduction?

I suggest that any Government’s management of social issues can be evaluated on the continuum: Destructive, By Chance, Passive, or Proactive Management. In the UK, the Government partially funds a charity called Unite, which advocates for abducted children and parents left behind by abduction. This funding allows limited research to be carried out into the […]

Anger is not an emotion

BBC Article A study using the reaction of facial muscles indicates that humans have only four emotions that display themselves as happiness, sadness, irritation and fright. The previously accepted 6 emotions theory is being challenged. There is a significant factor here that will agravate feminists. Irritation would be a sliding scale where the same face […]

The new law is this

Mon 3rd February 2014:

If you can prove to the courts that you have been excluded from raising your child in any way or form by the custodial parent, then that custodial parent has no rights to funding from the non custodial parent. A little bit about my history. Not only was I excluded from having a parental say […]


Sun 2nd February 2014:

Some of you may remember me. I am the dad that wrote about parent alienation, three years ago. Two of my daughters were at the stage of not wanting to see me, so instead of loosing all and being hunted down by the IRD like a pig on the chase, I left for Australia to […]
