Futigive Killer Phillip Smith

Tue 11th November 2014:

I think this story is worth following. There is comment from his estranged father. He used a passport in his birth name of Phillip John Traynor, and was not stopped at the border as his conviction was under his Smith alias. (I am wondering if that is he mother’s maiden name?) From what I have […]

Mon 10th November 2014:

Hi all, I’m after links to or copies of recent DV studies showing the ratio of abuse inflicted by each sex, needed to prepare myself for any rebutal using the old studies showing its a man thing. I did have some but cant seem to locate them. Thanks.

IRD… Confuse Say…

Sun 9th November 2014:

So I’m just a little confused with the IRD and how they work out “nights per year” for child support.

Male oppression.

Sat 8th November 2014:

Do you feel guilty about Male oppression? This man found the answer as he got in his car. !

Insomnia !!!

Insomnia is a common effect for those falsely accused of violence. Imprisonment is another.

Women Want Men Convicted Without Sufficient Evidence

Fri 7th November 2014:

Three women yesterday protested outside the Auckland Central Police Station and media rushed to give them publicity. Groups of men have mounted many protests against systemic misandry, exploitation and sexism that contribute to more males committing suicide each year than die on the roads, but media almost always ignore the male protesters. Men just don’t […]

Criminologist Jan Jordan author of ‘The word of a woman’ has just been awarded $610,000 + GST to explore barriers to rape reform.

Survival meals

Mon 3rd November 2014:

Some of us know what it is like to have to flee a violent woman, or be routinely removed from our houses and shoved out on the street, because society thinks a woman is always right. Guys have to spend the night(s) in a police cell, or if they are lucky on someone’s couch or […]

Quality of the Decisions made in Preparing the Domestic Violence Act

Sun 2nd November 2014:

It is important to look back and see the quality of the decisions made in preparing the Domestic Violence Act. Those who don’t know history, are forever doomed to keep repeating it………… (Think Big, DV Act, Building Act, these alone total $100 billions of opportunity wasted and social self harm.) The act was prepared based […]

Preparing Legislation with the same care as Drugs?

Sat 1st November 2014:

Legislation should be prepared and implemented with care. This is known as “legislation quality” and although given lip service in many countries, including NZ, it is more honoured in the breach! For example Attorney General reports noting that legislation breaches basic human rights, but it is passed anyway, under urgency. Fools rush in, where angels […]

Violent Women a Problem

Sun 26th October 2014:

MoMA Media Release 24 October 2014 MEDIA RELEASE VIOLENT WOMEN A PROBLEM Black Ribbon campaigners have noticed an increase in reports of female physical violence. On the streets this month they received disclosures such as a wife throwing knives at her husband, a partner assaulting her male friend with a bat, a girlfriend trashing a […]

Feminist Abuse Children To Get Point Across

Fri 24th October 2014:

I don’t think I have ever seen a more offensive or abusive use of children to make such a video. The hard core feminists who wrote scripts and taught these young children to make this clip should be jailed for destroying these girls childhoods. It’s up to adults to work out adult problems and not […]

NZ Police Discriminate Against Men

Wed 22nd October 2014:

We all know that anti-male sexism is rife throughout our country including our police. We all know that police routinely discriminate against men and behave as ‘white knights’ serving the interests of women as if royalty. We all knew that ‘police safety orders’ would become yet another tool with which to blame and harm men […]

MoMA Black Ribbon Campaign 2014

Some supporters of MoMA will be out campaigning against White Ribbon and in favour of the MoMA Black Ribbon Campaign, encouraging people to show they are against violence towards men, women and children rather than supporting misandry. We will be at the MT MAUNGANUI MAIN SHOPPING CENTRE this FRIDAY 24th OCTOBER from 11am to 2pm […]

Is IRD showing increasing awareness of self-harm?

Tue 21st October 2014:

I didn’t see this article published back on the 8th October. Includes comment from Union of Fathers (New Zealand)

Who really murdered the “angel”?

Cold case: Death of ‘angel’ devastates dad – National – NZ Herald News The biggest crooks here are the IRD and everyone involved with the Child Support system. The father in all faith would have complained to the Police, should he have had the slightest inkling of his daughter missing. But the Child Support system […]

The boy school leaver

Thu 16th October 2014:

NZCER was contracted by the Association of Boys’ Schools of New Zealand (ABSNZ) to undertake an analysis of student achievement in New Zealand boys’ schools, and to identify approaches and strategies used by high-achieving boys’ schools. In 2012, 28 percent of boys leaving school came from boys’ schools: a total of 7,439 students, increased somewhat […]

I have an exhibition running that opened last weekend. “Pater Invisiblis”(invisible Father) is a photographic exhibition about my experiences as an absent father.

Call to people caring for families involved with CYFS

Perhaps the main highlight of this website “MENZ’, for me, was the connection to men caring about families dealing with Child, Youth and Family Services aka CYFS.

Kiwi tinder gang rape claim

Sun 12th October 2014: Ide like to know what the Oz cops spent on this woman and her false gang rape claim. I note the Oz law is 7 years for a false complaint. NZ is only 3. But in reality it’s nil because they almost never charge and if it ever goes to court there’s just a […]

Male Victim of Serious Violence Doesn’t Get Justice

Fri 10th October 2014:

Here is a good example of New Zealand’s attitude regarding violence towards males. A man had almost every bone in the right side of his face broken, underwent numerous facial reconstruction surgeries, has titanium plates in his skull and suffers permanent damage and ongoing complicaitons. The attacker was charged with the serious offence ‘injuring with […]

And now, the Brenda Leyland Pussy Pass!

Tue 7th October 2014:

Brenda Leyland committed suicide (apparently), a few days after a tv crew ‘outed’ her for making thousands of tweets under a false identity mostly expressing blame and hatred towards Madeline McCann’s parents. For example “I fear, that we are in this 4 long haul, up to all of us to a) Bang home the facts […]
