Living With InJustice

Sun 28th October 2018:

Is to be on your knees, Being a SURVIVOR of this one is to be a SURVIVOR of victimisation for sure, SURVIVING such a thing as this take guts, moral fibre, faith?, and all those wonderful things, These things may not be easy to find on your own and you WILL need BACK UP, But […]


Sat 27th October 2018:

Those whom have been apparently blind to a swell of mis-truths and dangerous exaggerations in recent times will surely be starting to see, these the judges and lawmakers…. It would be great to think that big change could be made, you know to say, a more european family style court system, if it were to […]

Mansplaining – a uniquely postmodernist concept

Wed 24th October 2018:

Quillette writer Michael Aaron discusses the importance of understanding that the left/right political dichotomy no longer applies, and that there are now three distinct political viewpoints: postmodern, modern, and traditional. His explanation of the postmodernist term ‘mansplaining’ might offer some clues as to why our efforts to communicate the issues men face have largely been […]

Announcement: Men’s Summit 2019 in Dunedin

Mon 22nd October 2018:

Organisers of the NZ Men’s Summit invite those interested in the welfare of men, fathers, boys and their friends to the Otago University Rugby Clubrooms on Friday 12 April next year. Speakers and workshops will address important issues affecting the well being of males. This significant forum, with a working lunch, in a venue overlooking the […]

Effectively Resisting the Feminist Juggernaut

Sun 21st October 2018:

Instead, we would like to see many more thoroughly violent responses from men when feminist violence is done to them. This excerpt is from MoMA’s original post on Jamie Lee Ross. Many on this site have advised that we can learn a lot from the “old hands”. With them making quotes like that I’m not […]

There’s a dangerous problem with the Believe Survivors movement

News Article Link I do not think I have ever seen a news article where the reporter was fearful enough to put “Name Withheld”. Mostly reporters like to receive recognition, appreciation and industry respect for writing newsworthy features. Indeed, I am surprised the Editor published this piece. The publishing of comments against the “believe survivors […]

Guardians of our Children,,self litigation workshop

Fri 19th October 2018:

What: Guardians of our Children “Make Them Proud” Self-litigation workshop When: Saturday 27th October Time: 9am – 3pm Where:


Did the shit have to get to the top before the reality sunk in for some people, or perhaps they sunk into it, might be a better analogy. This could be the year, and it would be a strange one if the first year of the Labour government after Hellengrad saw the emergence of a […]

Jami-Lee Ross vs Feminist Violence

Wed 17th October 2018:

While we may be critical of Mr Ross’ disloyal attempts to sabotage his leader and party (and probably other individual parliamentarians in the near future!) and/or we may also see him to some extent as suffering abuse for brave whistle-blowing, we applaud the fact that he has not rolled over and accepted feminist mischief against […]

Undisclosed Drug Use

The female of the species is well known for hiding what they think you may not like in order to get the attention of a male. Leaving aside alcohol and cigarettes, there are other addictions that are disruptive and sometimes dangerous within relationships. Meths use amongst females is perhaps more obvious but sugar and food […] not mediation..”MEDITATION”

Sun 14th October 2018:

( only one named mama could get away with a post like this here,,so here goes) I was talking with people the other day about the great need to look after yourself when you get caught up in the system. Some people will not have the luxury of time to find wisdom and they need […]

Court Favouritism Towards Females

While over the last year or two there have been some cases in which women were sentenced comparably to men, that remains a rare exception. Here’s a case in the news today. Compare that with this very similar case in which it was a father who responded to his child’s bully with a mild physical […]

GIVE IT MEL’LALLDE…..Melania and me…

Sat 13th October 2018:

I can imagine that people have reserved feeling /perception for Mrs Trump, First Lady and Statuesque Lady at the side of the President of the United States. I did have a smirk at her expense when observing for the third time her punished look of despair at having to be ‘the public office wife’ whilst […]

A Brief Summary of Some Serious Flaws in the Domestic Violence Act

1. The DVA requires the Court to determine matters on the standard of ‘proof’ called the balance of probabilities. This may be suitable for legal decision making in some areas and perhaps for a strictly time-limited non-contact order in relationship conflict situations, but it’s inadequate and unjust when used to deprive or limit in ongoing […]

Suicide: ‘Don’t Mention the Facts’

Fri 12th October 2018:

Almost every article on suicide fails to mention the extent to which suicide is a gender issue, that men have over decades committed suicide around 3 times more often than everyone else. Here’s another one, a good article in most respects. Is it the editors who take out any reference to the gender issue here? […]

Police Proudly Parade Their Anti-Male Sexism

Check out this remarkable news item. Police white-knighting for damsels who are not in distress. “How do you know she’s consenting?” Apart from the fact she has her tongue in your mouth and her hand down your underpants? A better question might be “How do you know she won’t withdraw her consent retrospectively tomorrow or […]

Man dragged through caught to be taught lesson???..antismacking

Wed 10th October 2018:

When I heard on the AM show that a man was dragged through court for smacking his four year old child once on the bottom, they also slipped it in there that the mother thought he may have needed to be taught a lesson, the Father that is. Since when are Mothers an advisory to […]

Sydnee Shanunna Toulapapa

Tue 9th October 2018:

The Crown then appealed that decision, made by High Court Justice Peter Woodhouse, on the grounds that a conviction would have been proportionate to the seriousness of the offending. The Court of Appeal on Tuesday dismissed the appeal, saying that Toulapapa was the “dupe of the principal offender” – her cousin Nadene Manukau-Togiavalu. Regardless of the backdrop to […]

A Chorus of Casualties

This week we’ve seen an investigation, and unusually, a joint investigation, into Chorus by IRD and employment authorities. It follows on the back of news last week that two major media interests have not been granted permission to merge (The actual decision wasn’t available but if anyone does see it, a link would be a […]

MENEVENT…may sound like medicine, and it could be..but not as we know it Jim

Mon 8th October 2018:

This is CALL OUT to all and every Bloody Mens’ Group or dot what ever. We here in NZ want to see some SOLIDARITY. It seems that every November we see stuff about Men this and that, so November would be perfect. “Wait, there is one coming our way!” “Can we jump on it […]

What Men Want….

Sun 7th October 2018:

The difference between Want and Need has been on my mind since I was kid. One is necessary. Men are logical and think more in terms of need, to my mind anyway. So maybe it is more WHAT MEN NEED. TO FOCUS ON THE ENEMY in times of war is a necessity, it can also […]

Ways Forward

Sat 6th October 2018:

If you’ve been thinking why don’t we just do that or why hasn’t someone done this? This post is for you. The Feminist agenda affects individuals in so many different ways and individuals see it from many different points of view. Often that is the argument, you’re not seeing it from where I sit or […]

Self Litigation Workshop, Guardians Of Our Children…

Tue 2nd October 2018:

This workshop is being organised by Frank Hicks. Frank recently spoke at the conference in Wellington organised by Kidz Need Dadz. He was very well received at the conference and brings a wealth of knowledge, he loves to share his knowledge in order to help anyone going through the Family Court process. The workshop […]

Hi, We have been working to promoting International Men’s Day in New Zealand. You can connect with us here: Tweets by NZMensDay We are in Christchurch and have a bikers’ run planned for Sunday 18th. We are also encouraging everybody to post a short story about a man in their lives who has […]

Brett Kavanaugh

I’m inclined to avoid US politics and have been critical of others for straying into that teritory rather than remaining focused on our own domestic politics. I just thought I would say that before I get started.
