Every single life lost to suicide is one too many.

Thu 24th December 2015:

Target-setting is great for progress, but is it right for suicide prevention? Alan Woodward Mental health Opinion What is the “right’ suicide prevention target? Does a target of 50% imply acceptance that in Australia 1300 people will die by suicide each year? Setting targets has become commonplace as a way of measuring achievement and progress. […]

John Key, Prison Rape and White Ribbon

Perhaps we should be grateful that in response to John Key’s involvement in a radio joke about prison rape, some White Ribbon people have lowered themselves to disapprove of this form of violence even though it’s only towards mere men. However, we were mainly struck by their hypocrisy. White Ribbon asks John Key for explanation […]

Females Can Do No Wrong

Tue 22nd December 2015:

pcObelix asked why the Counties Manukau Police only asked boys to hit a girl in their latest sexist anti-violence initiative. Yeah well they didn’t need to do the exercise with girls. Everyone already knows that males are the only ones who behave badly enough to worry about. ‘Cuckoo’ student who duped teacher into thinking she […]

Boys asked to slap girl….why do not they not try the reverse and see what happens Second such event…the other one being overseas from earlier on this year. I wonder what would happen if they asked a girl to slap a boy….let’s stop the stereotyping……

Reduction in Bailffs

Mon 21st December 2015:

So as it turns out at the start of the year, the nations bailiff numbers were slashed in half…, Last year I was served papers that My ex had filed the following day, This year, im guessing either because of the reduction in bailiffs or because I am a Male, my papers that […]

Adam’s Christmas present to Eve

Fri 18th December 2015:

Stop right there. It’s not a religious post. I know how much some of you detest … the slightest incandescence … of religion gracing the texts of this site but I can’t help seeing the humour in the fact that our current Women’s Minister has the surname Adams. Before I go any further, I’d like […]

Find out your partner’s history of abuse

Thu 17th December 2015:

Given it’s so difficult for female violence and abuse to be acknowledged and counted, and police are biased so much as to wear and dispense “White-ribbons”, I’m sure people in the item excerpt below can be read as “Women”. I get told so often things are getting better. Even men say that, until they too […]

Ground 8 (Her Income)

Wed 16th December 2015:

Hi, Just wondering if anyone out there has ever had any success with an Admin Review based on the increased earning capacity of the custodial parent. The custodial parent in my case has recently received a rather large inheritance and is doing well for herself while I am still expected to pay her about $1500 […]

Missing Legal Documents in New Zealand

Tue 15th December 2015:

This will be of interest to anyone who deals with an ex-partner through legally transferred communications only, or who has communicated this way in the past. I’m looking at an interesting case, where many years ago, a group of Labour Party professionals (during labour’s time in power) constructed a court case in favour of another […]

Standard Contract

It’s just your standard contract, no need to sign, you’re just a man. We own you now. Interesting, I read this week, that a nice judge, ripped up the contracts of the poor victims who became party to the loan sharks of the big city. But wait, there’s more: … and in the Family Court […]

Only Male Jihadists Lose Their NZ Passports

Sun 13th December 2015:

Ms Kitteridge, head of NZ’s Security Intelligence Service (SIS), this week caused us all great anxiety by announcing that increasing numbers of NZ women are travelling to Iraq and Syria. The SIS apparently has become really concerned because the numbers involved are close to exceeding what can be counted on the fingers of both hands. […]

More Nonsense About Alleged Patriarchy

Fri 11th December 2015:

Take a look and wonder at this piece yesterday of confused thinking and outlandish feminist claims: Priya Chand: The perilous politics of patriarchy

Historic Meeting with Human Rights Commission

Thu 10th December 2015:

A tide change is building further with a recent invitation by the Human Rights Commission for several groups to provide submissions concerning discrimination against men. MoMA provided submissions towards this. An historic meeting was held yesterday involving David Rutherford (Chief Human Rights Commissioner), Peter Jackson (Operations Manager Human Rights Commission), Kerry Bevin (MoMA), Craig Jackson […]

Male Denigration, Attack on MoMA and Child Development

A couple of interesting local experiences today were reported by MoMA’s chief executive. He attended a seminar in which the presenter Nathan Mikaere-Wallis repeatedly made comments that stereotyped men as incompetent, drunkards, violent abusers of their wives and generally inferior compared to women. When a suggestion was made that Mr M-W stop denigrating the male […]

The politics of Get a Man

Tue 8th December 2015:

It is unfortunate that this concept is viewed as acceptable in any society, let alone become commonplace as it has in ours. It comes off the back of the theory that men are expendable in the development of society, and sometimes it’s hard to translate into every day life. There’s an article here which looks […]

Seperated Families Christmas Survey

Mon 7th December 2015:

What are your arrangements for Christmas with your ex, do they work for you? Please fill out this survey I will post results from the survey on Friday Afternoon

The Red Pill movie about MRAs

A female film-maker is soon to release a documentary about the Men’s Rights Movement. Funding was withdrawn when it became apparent that her film was “balanced and “giving the MRAs a platform’”. The preview for this movie shows interviews with Voice For Men founder Paul Elam, Dr Warren Farrell, author of The Myth Of Male […]

Easily forgotten – Disadvantaged Groups & Important Thanks

Sun 6th December 2015:

I was listening to a group of people talking about the difficulties to obtain support for a charity, that gives them support. I had heard similar discussions on several occasions, over several months. After hearing the same type of conversation for the 4th time, it really hit me how harsh their situation was and how […]

A true menace from fiction: – Lies and malice down the years and generations.

I am reminded today that some lies and malice against us fifteen years ago is still unabated, and can still cause us harm. More-over, its having consequences upon subsequent generations. Sorry, it will seem long, although I really will try to be brief. I feel that so many must have horror stories, which remain hidden. […]

Media Keep Pushing Feminist Propaganda

NZ news media carry a lot of responsibility for promoting anti-male sexism and for making it extremely difficult for men to influence public opinion with reason or facts. Yesterday’s NZ Herald carried several stories in which bad behaviour by men towards women was emphasized in gender-specific headlines. While those stories involved bad events likely to […]

New Zealand Family Court has officially ruined my Family

Sat 5th December 2015:

Having been though the Family Court for the past 9 years, of which I was given just enough hope that I may actually get “Justice” and though the family court be able to establish a relationship with my son, that the Ex would not allow.

A New Low in Domestic Violence Fraud

Thu 3rd December 2015:

An artist who is either a white knight feminist propaganda supporter or simply sees an opportunity to cash in on fashionable feminism has changed photos of female celebrities to make them look injured through partner violence. The artist appears to subscribe to the strange morality that violence towards women is the only violence worth being […]

Warehouse Stationery > The All Blacks > White Ribbon

Today I noticed that the Warehouse Stationery store in Palmerston North has at least one White-Ribbon poster at the check-out. I did not check every till, but it was there prominently placed at the one I did go through. The sadness was increased to see the All-Blacks were featured on this poster. Clearly the All-Blacks […]

MP Dr Yang Extends the Witch Hunt

The witch hunt against sex offenders is a significant part of the wider war against men. Of course it’s important to protect children (and adults) from sexual violence and exploitation and to punish those who disobey relevant laws. However, we have increased punishment to disproportionate levels so that gentle illegal sexual touching is now often […]

The honouring of Rory Malone

Lance Corporal Rory Patrick Malone was killed, aged 26, during an incident in the northeast of Bamyan Province, Afghanistan in August 2012. This of course is one extreme of the dichotomy of New Zealand Society. Malone will be posthumously honoured for his courage under fire. The State will hold this man high, and glorify his […]
