A Feminist Party?

Filed under: Gender Politics,General — Downunder @ 9:08 am Fri 22nd August 2014

When I saw this article the other day it confirmed my thoughts – the ones I’ve been sharing in recent posts – that we are now seeing an overt feminist political-position.

Internet-Mana is a feminist party. No I didn’t say that. They did.

Dr Pani Farvid, an Iranian-born psychologist at AUT, [The Party’s gender issues spokeswoman] proudly told a women’s election forum in Auckland last night that the Internet Party was “a feminist party”.

Any man in the party that had put his hand up for gender issues spokeswoman would have a big ‘D’ clearly visible on his forehead – it could only be a woman.

“The urgent task of advocating genuine gender equality is one of our top priorities,” she declared.

Sounds like we’re going down the Red Fems path here.

It was Kim Dotcom that started all this and perhaps he should reflect on his own words:

But it’s become my problem because all my rights are being pissed on and I’m being abused.

Your mother may have been your hero, but are you up to speed yet buddy – now the rights to open your mouth, have an opinion, and crack a joke have gone too.

Oh and by the way, you need to be retrained.

“He is not perfect. He is not the party, he’s the founder, but we are a feminist party. He has apologised himself, I’m not excusing him, that sort of thing is not OK, absolutely. He just doesn’t know any better and he should.”

Of course only women are perfect, but the big German is not the only one affected here. Mana leader Hone Harawira has been put in touch with the feminist side of his party’s new alliance too.

Why the long face Hone – we haven’t seen a smile on your face since you announced the political alliance between Mana and Internet Party.

Poor old Hone must feel like he’s taken out a protection order out against himself “¦ and having to pay his lawyer in slices of mana.

He’s been arrested (figuratively speaking) for the psychological abuse of his opinion. He’s being told what he can and can’t say and when to speak and when not to speak – fast becoming the child of HIS party; a child who should be seen and not heard.

[Hey, naughty boy. You got told, eh.]

Laila’s got him well and truly on a leash, with the choker pulled up tight.

Perhaps the definition of Mana Muncher needs to be expanded to include Red Fems.

What ya thinking now, Hone?


  1. Actually none of their documentation says that they are a feminist party. I did send a message saying just that but I have had no response.

    On the other hand, what’s new? They are all feminist parties. The one thing that stands out at election time is that there is not one single party that consistently stands up for issues that affect men and boys whereas they all stand up for issues that affect women and girls.

  2. So right Wayne.

    I did notice that the Minister for Sexual Violence,[you didn’t know we had one of those – well, yes we do – it’s Paula Bennett] announced recently that she agrees, New Zealand has a ‘Rape Culture’.

    They’re all at it – demonising men for the vote.

    How long before these feminists pass legislation to take away the vote from men?

    New Zealand makes history again – declares only women are capable of exercising the vote.

  3. @Wayne.
    I agree about all the parties being women centric. Another vote lost and they will again lament about those who dont bother to vote. Perhaps they need to make voting compulsory and have voting options like “I dont want to vote for any candidate or party because they dont reflect my views, beliefs, and morals”. It would be interesting to see why people dont vote… very interesting indeed.

  4. But what about this?

    Expertly hacked from:

    Turns out that my hacking revealed a SHOCKING gap in Green Party Policy. Yes folks you heard it here first.

    The Green Party have no policy on valuing women.

  5. That’s probably because they’re never quite sure what Jan Logie might say.

  6. I have just been advised that BEHEADING DAY is on September 2nd It is, with macabre significance, 5 DAYS BEFORE FATHERS DAY which is September 7th.
    This is CLEARLY an international plot by the One World Feminism Government!

  7. Are you then implying that Father’s Day is really Re-heading Day?
    But what if it doesn’t actually work?
    Maybe it is intended to not work?
    I’m confused?

  8. Only the paranoids Really know what is going on…..
    Would men get their own heads back?
    Or just randomly some other man’s head?
    Or just a cheap plastic fake woman’s head?
    Maybe it is a feminist conspiracy after all?
    Are you paranoid Enough?

  9. Dear Axe-Murderer- I knew this would appeal to you. Re-heading is only your own wishfull thinking I’m afraid, not any inference of mine. No-body wants to mend broken fathers when she can so easily find a replacement.
    I only celebrate Fathers day because it was the day I was released from my 22 yrs of slavery, and REQUIRED to leave, because (like a broken appliance) I was burnt out and no longer able to work. Family be-heading day perhaps.

  10. Normal logic tells us ‘if it aint broke, don’t fix it’.
    Feminist logic tells us ‘if he aint broke, break him; that’ll *fix* him’. Then ‘kick him out, take his home, claim Child Support to the max plus plus, and he’ll be so broke he can’t be fixed again.’

  11. #9, Oh My God, it is even worse than my paranoia told me….
    Funny that women can do anything…..
    I have heard several stories about waste of chunks of children’s life, due to lack of discipline for children (boys and girls), where the woman could do everything on their own (or at least were prepared to sacrifice children on the altar of pride in the attempt)?

    I always figured that I would share the responsibility of bringing up my children widely. Not that I am scared of the responsibility, but the children are much safer with frequent access to at least 2 adults.

    Besides men are bloody bigger than women, have bloody deeper voices, stronger s59 kicks….. Evolution did know best… Methinks only a fool would fight against thousands of years of survival honed genetics, that provided for 2 diverse parents.

  12. Where is Hone Hawarira?

    With just over two weeks till the election the man who is supposed to be leading Internet Mana has been nowhere to be seen.
