It’s alright to threaten violence if you’re dressed as a woman

Mon 29th May 2017:

Just found this Ben Shipiro, where about 5 minutes in, he calls this guy dressed as a woman “Sir”, just listen to his response – threatening violence. Now tell me that if he wasn’t in drag, he would get away with such a threat. Enjoy


I was invited to have dinner at my friends place last night, a middle-aged couple with a young daughter. They both (him and her) know of the troubles I have had to endure lately with me ex taking my kids etc (just for your info, I haven’t seen my 15yo and 13yo boys in over […]

I’d like to think that the pendulum has finally begun to swing the other way …

I’m Glad I’m Not A Pedophile

Sat 27th May 2017:

Can anyone explain to me why we are supposed to be liberal open minded people and yet we are anti-pedophile? Now I know you might call this semantics but pedophillia is a psychiatric disorder in which an adult or older adolescent experiences a primary or exclusive sexual attraction to prepubescent children. This is not something […]

Police and Protection Orders

Thu 25th May 2017:

Last year, after my ex decided that she wanted another pound of flesh took my children from me under the guise of an interim custody order (I’m still fighting this in court). Prior to this (some 7 years ago and I’m sure no surprise to most) she obtained a protection order, which she then supported […]

A Woman (Joanne Harrison) Offends, A Male is Found to Punish

The case of Auditor-General Martin Matthews appears to be another example of men being held responsible when women misbehave. Not much has fundamentally changed in attitudes since the era in which husbands were considered responsible for their wives’ behaviour and debts.

White Muddled Class Wail

Tue 23rd May 2017:

I’m sick of ‘White Middle-Class Male’ arogance. Rohan Lord got the wakeup call he deserved. Was he that politicaly naive, that socially disconnected, that remotely hopeful, that he could make any change by joining the Labour Party. He got chucked?

An island that doesn’t allow women

Mon 22nd May 2017:

Okinoshima, an interesting idea. Perhaps NZ’s two main islands could do the same.

Pie in the Fluffy Sky with Diamonds

Sun 21st May 2017:

A kaleidoscope car appears at your door Waiting to take you away Climb in the back, with your head in the clouds And

Exclusion of Males Spreading

Sat 20th May 2017:

A previous post discussed the misuse of a publicly funded swimming pool by banning males and allowing only females at the complex for several prime hours each week. Now we read that a girls’ school netball tournament has been banning men from any presence or role, including the girls’ fathers.

The Social Graphic of Suicide

I really don’t think people get this, and it pains me to watch the chaos building around both the discussion and the prospective fix, which as I see it, is encouraging the problem, not helping it. As a young New Zealander

Family Court Costs

Fri 19th May 2017:

I need some reliable info. I have been crippled for the last year in custody hearings at the FC and my bet is I’m going to come second again! My predicament is that the is to be a final hearing next month and while I am entitled to legal aid I don’t use it as […]

Women Marrying Themselves

This trend is quite something. Apparently it’s somehow related to being a feminist, or single, or something.

Police Maintain Routine Sexism

Thu 18th May 2017:

From a correspondent; we changed place names to respect privacy: I picked up a hitch-hiker today even though he had no backpack. He told me his essential reason for needing to hitchhike and I encouraged him to share the rest of his story. I have changed the locations to respect privacy, but nothing else. He […]

Colin Craig and Cameron Slater

If either were my child, I’d definitely want a God to pray to for an explanation. Apparently they’re both in the Auckland High Court exercising their Christian principals and suing each other for defamation. They deserve each other, they’re a couple of spoilt brats, and equally a waste of good skin. Colin Craig the former […]

Autobiography of Dean Wickliffe

At the age of 68 Wickliffe who has been paroled unsuccessfully in the past, has been released again for the 6th time. He has twice escaped from Paremoremo, during his term of imprisonment for the murder, and has been responsible for significant offending while on parole. I’m curious to know what is in this book […]

Electronic Bail for Female Offenders

This is something I have wondered about for quite some time – whether electronic bail is applied more liberally for the ‘fairer sex’ for the same crime? A 29 year old woman, arrested yesterday, appeared in the Blenheim District Court this morning, charged with drug related offending and breaching electronic bail conditions. The prisoner has […]

And if it was an extraordinary guy…would they get a free pass

Wed 17th May 2017:

What the hell…could you imagine a male getting the possible same treatment if the roles were reversed. Aspiring heart surgeon who stabbed boyfriend in England may avoid jail because she’s ‘extraordinary’

Do These Texts Show Partner Abuse?

Mon 15th May 2017:

This was a weird one. The heading was ‘Husband’s shocking texts reveal reality of domestic violence‘. Well we might have missed something but the texts didn’t seem shocking and there was nothing showing domestic violence happening or having happened. Is it we or they who are irrational? Or is it a cynical production of a […]

I Don’t Want it to be a Secret

Fri 12th May 2017:

I can’t get a link up at the moment. The story is a Stuff news item, about the wife of an Australian doctor who committed suicide. Wife of Australia doctor writes letter about his suicide to show ‘we’re not ashamed’

Margaret Dodds

Serial offender. Child abuser.

Core Values

Wed 10th May 2017:

Can I start by giving ‘core values’ some definition:

Immigration and our future

Sat 6th May 2017:

New Zealand, like all Western nations, continues to import some of the worst people and practices that other nations have to offer. The resulting friction between good and bad immigrants, and politicians of every position regarding the matter attracts a significant amount of attention.

The genital mutilation then fame story of John and Lorena Bobbitt

John and Lorena repeatedly partook in unethical actions. They seem to be disgusting characters and I have no interest in joining the majority who have apparently decided that one of them is better.

Real Estate People Profit From Separations

This article describes a video for property investors etc encouraging them to target ‘divorcees’ among others and to employ tactics such as working together with others to add credibility to low offers. While this is not exclusively a men’s issue, men should be aware of it. Real estate people, property investors (including anyone looking to […]
