A Great loss to NZ

Filed under: General — triassic @ 12:04 pm Tue 17th February 2015

Celia Lashlie passed away today after suffering from cancer. She was a very wise woman and a great advocate in the education of raising healthy young males in our society. She will be sorely missed and I salute her for her brave stance in our matriachal ideologically driven society.


  1. NZ’s great champion for the physical and mental welfare of men both young and old. We have lost an inspirational Kiwi who will be hard to replace. Her supportive, balanced advocacy was never truly recognised. My deepest sympathies to her family and friends.

  2. Yes, it was unusual and valuable for a female to show and promote understanding towards males instead of jumping on the feminist bandwagon of anti-male blame and propaganda.

    Celia’s experience gave her down-to-earth insights into males. She often expressed her beliefs with an unfounded certainty in the absence of research support. In the end, have many people become more realistic and balanced about males from her efforts? I’m not sure. NZ still continues to reduce men’s rights and welfare in favour of the elite female class, steadily moving towards male enslavement and perhaps holocaust.

    It was weird that our media needed a female expert to tell us how to understand males. You can be sure if any male attempted to put himself forward as an expert on understanding females he would have been egged, tarred and feathered (or at least roundly ridiculed) by the shriller of our feminist population. I guess men are a bit more sensible in being prepared to value a female’s wisdom and contribution, and to put aside any tendency to feel patronized.

    In losing Celia we have lost an almost lone voice as far as someone whom the media consulted and allowed to speak in ways that showed understanding and fairness concerning males.

  3. Cella knew how boys “tick”, she also knew how to treat them. She had no PC nonsense about her. She was probably one of blokes best advocates. She will be sadly missed. From a teacher.

  4. How would she have answered if asked what are little boys made of.

    What are little boys made of?
    Snips & snails & puppy dogs tails.

  5. All,
    My first experience Lashlie was about 15 years ago when I complained about a TVNZ piece featuring Lashlie to the Broadcasting Standards Authority (BSA) about her making the most amazing sweeping sexist statements, in particular her saying it was a tragedy for the family when a mother was sent to jail and a relief for the family when a father was sent to jail. Naturally the BSA declined the complaint; the BSA is there to protect political correctness, not public standards.
    My impression was Lashlie, in her advocacy for boys, treated them more like delinquent but likable dogs who needed sympathy and training. Can anyone tell me Lashlie ever advocated for fathers to be treated as equal parents? Please tell me if I have got it wrong?
    I always suspected Lashlie was a Trojan Horse for the feminists, appearing to advocate for boys but really slyly pushing the feminist line. She always got a lot of media coverage, and funding from the social and government system. Was this because of her good advocacy for boys or her good connections in the system and her doing what the system wanted? Was Lashlie really a feminist agent behind it all? Does anyone have any comments please?
    Why do we men need women like Lashlie as an advocate anyway? Can’t we men speak up for ourselves or do we need a women of dubious credentials to do it for us. Did Lashlie affirm what some men think without really grappling with the issues? Was Lashlie filling the vacuum that male advocates have failed to fill?
    Things got worse for men and boys during the Lashlie era, not better.
    I wish Lashlie was here to defend herself, but these things need to be said.
