Only Male Jihadists Lose Their NZ Passports

Filed under: General — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 11:36 pm 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. Our SIS spies tend to get confused and lose count every time they go above 5 and have to change hands. They tried starting with the other hand but it didn’t help. They have no intention of disclosing their next strategy for discovering the right number because that’s on a strictly need-to-know basis. When the SIS completes that numerical calculation it will try to get more information on the women and their holiday plans. Ms Ketteridge doesn’t know whether they are travelling to find romance, for thrill-seeking in the range of adventure sports over there, or simply to enjoy some of their hosts’ theatrical shows and film industry.

It’s unclear why the matter is seen as worthy of so much time and effort. Both the SIS and the government know from research by White Ribbon experts that women never commit violence worth mentioning, so there’s no need to consider cancelling these women’s passports and they will be welcome back any time. Those women involved in the Paris and San Bernadino massacres recently were simply confused, having been told they would only be killing men as part of a growing international sport for women (that the NZ government is currently planning to promote).

The SIS isn’t able to give us any idea how many men are holidaying in Iraq and Syria. That number is so great that the SIS will need a substantial increase in funding to be able to count that far. And anyway, they’re only men so their passports can be cancelled and good riddance, serves them right for not choosing a NZ holiday destination.

Ms Kitteridge expressed some concern for the women’s own safety because ISIS tour guides are renown for failing to ensure their customers wear sunscreen in the hot climate. But the women travelling to Iraq and Syria tend to be quite careful in covering up so it would be surprising if that were a major source of Ms Kitteridge’s angst.

Of course, when these women return to NZ after their holiday they will again be exposed to our highly violent men and NZ’s patriarchal rape culture causing this to be the most dangerous country in the world for women according to a women’s group in Eketahuna, or was it Patea? Perhaps that was why Ms Kitteridge was so worried.

Peter Dunne thinks Ms Kitteridge is softening up NZ for the outcome of a current review into what powers the SIS should have. She knows that NZers will deeply miss these women once it becomes known they have left for their holiday, so nobody will object next year when the government gives the SIS much expanded powers to snoop on us all. Peter Dunne might be on to something there.

However, we think the most likely explanation for Ms Kitteridge’s concern is that when the women return they might confuse the names SIS with ISIS, with the risk of spreading a rumour that NZ spies aren’t careful about using sunscreen.


  1. So for a New Zealand male to travel to these countries ,unless he is a media rep or exploiting the calamity for money in some other way then he is very much at risk of being considered a terrorist just because of the nationality of the man he stands next to Therefore he is subject to indefinate detention and/or torture without trial.
    Yet females that go to wed and breed with men from Syria and Iraq are not considered a danger in any way as females aren’t violent by default as men are?
    They are welcome to return, inseminated ,indoctrinated and wearing a silly sheet for a hat.
    They probably regect feminism upon returning which is likely Ms Kitterage’s concern.

  2. Rather topical for me, because I stumbled upon the item on YouTube. Seems to be a clip from Australian TV News where a Burka wearing female is stopped by an officer for a random alcohol breath test. What unfolds has to be sobering for us all in so many ways.
    So take a look for yourselves and make your own conclusions. I’m going to avoid the religion part of this because this is not a site for religion, but again you will come to your own conclusions.
    I think the woman’s conduct is alarming. It says a lot about how emboldened women feel nowadays. It shows that women are not all honest. Late in the item an apologist says she should not be locked up because she has seven children. So what are the odds that such a whacky woman could possibly be a positive parent to seven children? or is it more likely she would radicalise them all?

    It shows they

  3. Gosh, Equality, look at the way she was going off. No wonder these women much make such good suicide bombers.

    Perhaps that’s why the government doesn’t want to take their passports off them.

    Ms Kitterage’s real concern might be that these women could ‘go off’ around the Minister of Justice or another politician.

  4. Maybe that incident was truly “news-worthy”. If it is, then how come we just stumble accidentally on it? Personally, I feel so poorly served by the media, and I don’t trust it at all. I reckon what is presented in the stead of news, is what various interests want us to see, and issues intended to divert our attention while real news goes unreported. One example of real news, might be the truth about family violence, gender equality; and I’m sure we all can add to that seed list. BUT when I see things like that clip, truly, I fear for my kids, my grand-kids, society and all the freedoms such as are left now.
    Is it just me? What do you think? Is that a blend of extremist feminism and other extremisms? Does that make it more ominous?

  5. Maybe all the stuff about women being badly treated back home is just meant to rark us to hate Muslims. If that is true maybe these women are hoping for a better life for their children.

    Look how our media go on about men. It’s been a 20 year hate campaign and nobody bats an eyelid.

    Do journalists actually go in search of the truth these days. Did read a story from one overseas journalist who was interviewing Egyptian women who couldn’t wait to get to ISIS occupied territory, because they thought it was a better way to live.
