- promoting a clearer understanding of men's experience -
How would you caption this?
Of course i’d tell police truth and u can see baby. If u come back home. I just got upset, he gets all your attention and I wanted to make you appreciate me.
No, you can’t see your son; but can I have $50 for a manicure?
How can we resolve anything when you refuse to tell me why you’ve been making me so angry at you?
I won’t do a caption but it seems to me this woman looks genuinely compassionate and wants to comfort him. It does happen you know.
The man does not appear to me to be comforted by her words.
But I told you I wanted a baby. Your feelings are irrelevant.
I was convinced you were cheating on me, so I got revenge.
I love you darling but my lawyer said if you don’t do what I say, then I should apply for a protection order.
That’s real by the way…
If you don’t do what I say, I’m happy to talk to a Family Court judge.
That’s real by the way … too.
sudden flashback – may have nightmares tonight.
I love you, but you can live without sex right?
We can’t just do it: You know you have to tell the police 24 hours in advance.
Today I learned in women’s studies that women and children are not the only ones that can be victims of family violence……pets are often affected as well!
I know I lied about the child being yours.
But I did it because I love you.
Of course I was on the pill.
You believe me don’t you?
I’m only going to England with the kids for two months.
I promise to bring them back.
Ok, changed my mind; can’t resist.
“I understand how painful it must be realizing you really are a worthless second class citizen.”
“Don’t worry, you’ll find a woman who doesn’t care you have such a small penis.”
“Don’t worry, you’ll find a woman who doesn’t care you’re not rich. Oh, on second thoughts, perhaps not…”
Oh, my bro. Today’s system isn’t meant for men like you. You’re an outlier caught in it like many others.
MENZ – a place where outliers are empowered and learn to play the game.
Psst, I actually say this. 🙂
Hey advocates & activists, did you see me on TV? It’s my first time. It was scary as!!! This bit was the only good part.
Oh, I like the captions others have written. I see where you are coming from because I’ve been fortunate to share my community journey with single dads who have a journey (just like single mums).
They definitely ARE outliers, imo, and your voices reflect their pain, their anguish, plus, plus. Good for you.
This isn’t just a white male patriarchy game, imo. Maori and Pacific Island men are saying the same messages. My gosh, they are single fathers with 3, 4, 5, 6 and more children. And they’re working.
I’ve also been fortunate to meetup with most of ‘MENZ’ advocates & activists and they have helped single mothers many-a-time. In fact, all I care about is helping single parents while I am the last person on this earth to judge another.
Sometimes people say to me, “You shouldn’t have anything to do with MENZ. If you do, you will never amount to anything. Your voice will never be heard”.
I will tell you this. “Many years ago someone (a bad person) said to me “It’s not the one who voices anger you need to worry about, it’s the one who doesn’t” while it’s common for women to be told, “You will kill a man because you don’t express your pain”.
MENZ is needed. It’s a great site.
Gosh, Julie, so much more confident than you once were.
Thank you Downunder. I hope I get another chance. I think the experience was good for me and I believe I can improve. 🙂 It was the live bit that threw me.
I hope you know I would never have got into the political if it wasn’t for you, lol.
I simply came here looking for support for our dads because Waiparera’s deputy under John Tamahere (she was in charge of West Auckland COGS & Lotteries funding) said our group was (a) not allowed to reinvent the wheel, and (b) we had to refer our parents on.
I’ve learned soooo much and I am soooo grateful. We have some awesome dads making serious headway into men’s issues AND …. that includes Black Power all the way to Christchurch.
It’s a great day for men and women to sort their issues imo.
PLEASE DON’T STOP SPEAKING OUT – YOU CANNOT IMAGINE HOW FAR AND WIDE YOUR VOICE GOES, imo. It’s simply awesome. xx
