Why is Circumcision Not Treated as Sexual Abuse?

Sat 31st January 2015:

Circumcision is another example of duplicity in the way many people think about gender issues, and an incredible example of sexism that harms males.

Both juries acquitted him. A DSAC doctor wrongly concluded that Gwaze’s niece Charlene was analy raped then suffocated, […]

What do you call organizations you are terrified of?

Examples of Family Court rulings on Admin Reviews?

I’ve been assessed at a ‘potential’ income which is three times greater than my actual income as a result of a staggeringly unfair Admin Review. As a result I’m launching a counter review, as well as taking the existing review to the Family Court to challenge the review findings. I’m needing to find examples of […]

The Island With Bear Grylls – Masculinity in Crisis

Sat 17th January 2015:

Source: Interesting concept for a TV show (and I haven’t seen it) if it does look at changes in masculinity, rather than simply being another survivor series. Has anyone seen it? But this is amusing.

The toothpaste woman escapes with the loot.

Thu 15th January 2015:

I refer back to the first post I made 9 months ago back in may 2014 entitled Toothpaste accomplice. I had omitted in the post the fact that the woman had told me she was six weeks pregnant the week earlier. Months later police called me in to tell me “there is no baby”. So […]

Feminist Psychology

The book ‘Inferiority Feelings’ first published in 1951 and authored by Oliver Brackfeld, translated from French, is online (complete text) in the International library of Psychology The loquacity (talkativeness) which the […]

It’s an expression I’d not heard before and I went looking for an explanation on the net and came across this. The concept of gravel soup is a soup from left over’s – a bit of anything and everything – that can be added to if not consumed in one day. A bit of a […]

This is NOT a post about suicide. Japan’s fight to change suicide culture hurt by latest recession “The economy plays a big role,” in the nation’s suicide rate, said Mafumi Usui, a psychology professor at Niigata Seiryo University.

Sat 10th January 2015:

If you want to be reminded of how extreme and irrational mainstream feminism has become, and of how much our taxes are funding the forces of feminism in demonizing men, you might like to listen to this programme played on National Radio on 7th December 2014 and broadcast again this week.

Actions by Parents of suicides

Tue 6th January 2015:

I was reading Alan Turing: The Enigma, by Andrew Hodges. I was struck by The Author’s Note, on page 667: One person was not satisfied with this assessment, and sensed that some other kind of recognition was due. This was Mrs. Turing, who in 1956 embarked upon writing a biography of her son – an […]

Boys are to blame

Now this is an article that will rock your socks. He said schools were constantly having to keep on top of new technologies and seek clarification from police when images being shared involved students under the age of 16.
